I love feedback! Please tell me what I'm doing wrong - don't worry, I have a thick skin. ^_^
I was using Google image search the other day, looking for reference material.  And when I searched for "sensible shoes," I got this result, fairly near the top, too:

Google apparently has a very strange idea of what qualifies as "sensible."

This is a reference for an OC I'm about to introduce in Princess Blackmail, and I was hoping for some feedback.  Especially her outfit - I have no fashion sense at all.  (Assuming that's not already painfully obvious.)

Several years ago I watched an anime called Sola that I really enjoyed, but I'd mostly forgotten the story at this point, so I decided to rewatch it recently.  The protagonist is Matsuri, a supernatural being called a Yaka which can only go outside at night since they begin to smoke and burn when exposed to sunlight.  Matsuri also has a mild obsession with a particular tomato juice based drink.  I'm sure that any resemblance to any other mythical creatures that have been embraced by popular culture is purely accidental.  Yup, total coincidence.

As I was watching, I was really bothered by Matsuri's voice.  It didn't really match my memory of what she sounded like.  Which is odd, since I was watching the same Japanese dub as I had originally.  Then I realized that the cognitive dissonance was because Matsuri sounds exactly like Reiri.  Looking it up, they do indeed have the same voice actor (Noto Mamoko).  It also turns out that Sola and Princess Resurrection aired in the same season on Japanese TV.

Thinking about it, I realized that in addition to sounding like Reiri, Matsuri also lives in an abandoned church on the edge of town, never takes anything terribly seriously, and often flirtatiously teases people she likes.

Unlike Princess Resurrection, Sola places a lot of emphasis on emotional drama, and is similar in tone to many of Key's work, such as Kanon, Air, or Clannad.

Aaaaand there goes Hime's home insurance premium.  Wait, what am I saying?  No one in their right mind would sell Hime insurance at any price.  I've lost track of how many times the mansion has been burned to the ground, blasted with a giant cannon, transported to an alternate dimension, etc, etc, etc.  Oh well, I'm sure all of Sasanaki's contractors and building supply companies most love her.

Incidentally, if anyone wants to speculate about what exactly Sylvia is holding over Reiri, now's the time.

Characters:  Hime, Kamura Reiri, Liza Wildman, Hiyorimi Hiro

Confused?  There's a background summary here.

So what is it about depression that magically transforms all my work into crud?  It all looks terrible to me.  when I finished page iii, I was really pleased with how Reiri came out.  Now I look at it and her proportions look wonky, her expression seems to be a bit off, and somehow the right side of her head just looks wrong.
