As someone else pointed out a while back, Mai doesn't have gold eyes. If you draw her again, please try to remember that they're gray (brown in some light sources). Other than that, this is pretty much flawless -- you've captured the character while allowing your own style to shine through.
This is amazing! For a second, I thought it was lineart from the show. Everything's great - her expression, clothing, hair, and the perspective are really, really well done. The only problem here is Mai doesn't have golden eyes. (They're a dull brown.)
If it is alright with you, may I use this wonderful piece of Mai in a collaboration E-card that I'm trying to make for the 4th of July? Credit will be given of course- I'm looking at 3 characters atm, and Mai will fill in the part that goes along Zuko's quote for the card- The other characters that I am looking at are Riza Hawkeye, and Naomi Misora from Death Note- I will also be sure to let you know when its up here- If you have any objections, I will refrain from posting it on the site/delete it if by some chance that I get overeager and post it-
She looks lovely, to put it very, very lightly. Heck, if it's a gift for DS-Hina, it's going to be epically wonderful, and this is exactly that. Mai was my favorite character in this show, and still is, and this picture is amazing. I appreciate the fanart for her--she's beautiful. And, she is also deadly-looking. This is why she is amazing.
Oh, Mai is beautiful indeed. And about the other thing, I disagree, I'd put the same effort if it was for another deviant, it doesn't matter if is maybe more or less talented than her. I'm glad you like it. Btw, thanks to you for your comment, you're really nice.
