This is great! I love everything about it! Say,,

do you mind if I ever use the kimono design for any future art? ofcourse I'll credit you, and it won't be exactly alike.

This is a pretty good picture but I believe that she and her bike are too big for the world around her.

The sheer greatness of this image lies in its pure, unadulterated originality. Fantastic. I'd like to see more like this (or more of her).

I do not plan to copy the outfit

I would go with a leotard base with a half-Kimono and cloth-belt rather then a kimono half with a high leather girdle like you have...might be using the wrong term...

Not that I got far on it and it is close to being scrapped.

I like the kimono outfit concept might have to use it as a base for a different outfit.

Oh, a very nice pic indeed.:nod:
I really like the clothes the character is wearing. Despite the two very different themes’ you combined I think you have pulled it off very well. She also has a very convincing expression on her face. (Like she just noticed a sniper across the road toting a 20m anti tank rifle. :P) There is also a really great feeling of depth in the pic and the little details are really good. (Like that wanted poster in the ally)

But there is just one thing that bothers me and that is that she seems to be drawing a pistol from an extremely tight fitting suit. I feel that storing a pistol (especially such a big one) there would be extremely uncomfortable and it would not be very concealed if she did manage to squish it in there underneath her breast. Drawing it would also be problematic and time consuming.

This is not really a technical crit and doesn’t detract from the pic but I thought I would give it a mention, just my two cents, use it, don’t use it. :meow:

I noted the flash of silver/white under her hair: a hidden bandana or perhaps a cyborg brain case?

Great use of warm/hot colours in the kimono set against the green and brown earth tones of the bike and background. Nice work!
