Forgive me if anything I say seems irrational, this my first time writing a critique. First off, this is beautiful! The colors are vivid and fun and Dashie's expression is so playful. It definitely reflects her attitude and personality very well. The shading and lighting on this piece are marvelous, they really help the character to pop and to shine in her own little spotlight. The background however, is a little bland, but of course, most backgrounds are incredibly difficult and bothersome, so I didn't dock any points. As for originality, I did knock off half a star, just because the character belongs to someone else, but the idea is so cute, and definitely original! I love it, basically. I love all of it! Great Job!
