What I like most about this, which is something difficult to achieve in manga style (even a somewhat realistic one) is that each character REALLY has their own distinguished features. Usually it's the hair and clothes that tells the characters apart, but with this you can see both race and features beyond the hair and clothes.
OK, so I've been holding onto this comment since I read it a long while back, but this is seriously the best comment on any of my pieces that I have ever received. I swear, I've gushed about your words to a lot of people and just grow flustered every time I read it! So thank you so, so much for taking teh time to write this out and to look at my art!!! /)v(\
