Another wonderful face and great physical presence. Your characters always make me feel like leaning back a bit from the screen to avoid bumping into them. (But I lean forward to get a closer look, too.)

This young lady has such a serious face and pose.

Beautiful! I love her soft expression, the light on her earring, and that giant moon! And the contrast between the rich, bright colors in the foreground vs. the soft, dusty sky in the background.
