The girl's name is Mimi and she's one of the main chars from "Leben", a story by Tsu and me. She's a treasure hunter which is why she's holding a map (only she can read). She's currently on her way to school. A small building beside the ocean.

    Refreshing colors Yina! I think this is the first time you've used such atmospheric lighting xDD *lighting tard*

    Whoa ho ho! An original art piece from Yina? This is incredible!

    So right away, my eyes is drawn to the vibrant choice of colors and the excellent lighting. It really is an incredible piece in terms, especially with the leaves. It looks nothing short of stunning and that painted look is beautiful. The outfit is rather cute and I love her hair. You can almost feel as if you're about to head out to sea with her, or exploring an area near the coast for more clues. I absolutely love treasure hunting things, or anything with mystery elements, so this piece really resonates me. Adding elements like wind to her ribbon and outfit also give it this great coastal feeling. There's a nice amount of detailed work here to the background and I'm so glad you kept it minimal as well.

    With all this love, there are two things that really stand out at me. That's her arm and hand with the map. Her hand is pretty huge, and while I'm not sure if that was the intended art style (like One Piece), but it is sort of off putting. Her forearm also seems to be a bit larger, but that's just nitpicking now, when it really isn't that much of an issue. Another thing is the piece of paper in her hand. I love how you crumbled it, and it gives this distinct feel, it also feels somewhat off. I'd imagine a treasure hunter wouldn't want to crumble up an important clue unless it was for disposal. However, as previously stated with the forearm, this is just being nitpicky now.

    Honestly, it's a really solid piece. I've always been a fan of your artwork, both in terms of Indy Art as well as wallpapers, and this is no exception. It's well executed and that painted look is really damn sexy. Fantastic job, and I wish you the best of luck in the pixiv contest and on your story with Tsu!
