Year of the Dragons - Mina by Luna-Sapphira-Wings Year of the Dragons - Mina by Luna-Sapphira-Wings
Well, well... I guess I can have a picture for new years!
Chinese New Years mind you, but it'll suffice quite nicely, enjoy! :'D

Alright, new rule for myself, never use highly detailed characters for the "1 hour Sonic Challenge". This was the second failed attempt. lol Ah well, I love these "failed" pieces!

EDIT 22/1/2012: Arm fault is known of, and edited as was possible.

Art is drawn by and Moi, :iconluna-sapphira-wings:
Mina Mongoose Archie

Oh, hey my first critique.

lol, my first thoughts when saw this, I mistook this for a Tracy Yardley or Jamal Peppers art piece In others words, it's THAT good! :D Very clean crisp lines and coloring is very similar to Matt Herms, bright and vibrant. You get even more props for drawing Mina in her Asian dress, you don't see a lot of folks draw her in that outfit, even tougher to draw and color her in under an hour. It's also fitting that you have her in that dress, being the Year of the Dragon and all. Her left arm kinda looks a little too small, but that might be just me.

Again, Excellent.
What do you think?

Wow, what an amazing picture! The details are so beautiful, like the Chinese-styled dress! Some would argue that the sleeves on her dress would ruin it, but they look fantastic! You did a great job of portraying the Chinese style with the vivid color sceme and interesting detail! Especially the hair. I wouldn't have thought that a yellow-orange mongoose like Mina could pull of lavender hair, but somehow she makes it work. (lucky) Proportionally, the arms look odd, but I don't think that's anything to worry about. I love those gloves of hers, with the double rings on one arm only.
I could keep going on about how much I love this...wow. The chopsticks in Mina's hair and the earrings looks nice, too. A suddle detail, but it has a big impact.
The entire picture is phenominal! Can't wait to see more artwork from you in the future!

Man, these look like it was done by actual Archie employees. I vaguely remember her wearing this in one of the comics, I can't remember what. But still I love seeing these alternate costumes for characters, especially Mina, she be one of my favorites. Let's see... the shadin, something I have difficulty with, is very correct and good, the hands, something impossible for me without accurate references, are great, And the pale purple color and the light sheen on her hair are spectacular.
