Nice work! Especially on the crown. That thing is insanely hard to draw. Though, it looks kind of fuzzy--I assume you're using the smudge tool to push colors and stuff around? I'm not much of a digital artist, so I don't really know what I'm doing, but it looks... Strange. I'm sure there's a way to get it a little sharper
I can't wait for the anime to come start coming out. I mean, I'd play the games, but I'd have to pay about $40 per game to get them from Palletweb (Himeya and all the other places I've looked are even more expensive ), and while I'll admit that Ryukishi07 has gotten better at drawing since he did Higurashi (His character designs are great, too)... I'd really rather not spend a lot of time looking at his stuff XD I've started reading the manga, too, but I don't think the art is quite to my taste. Anyway, yes. More Naninani no Naku Koro Ni anime is a good thing.
