I think this was one of the first pictures of yours that I saw, one of those that made me look closer at your stuff, anyway. 

It's wonderfully peaceful (a rare moment of rest for two people who are almost constantly going out of one battle into another), and it's so clear that that's their home - something they're fighting to protect, and also a place to find strength. I really get a feeling of how small they are among these great (probably ages old) trees, and that steady rock/hill they can lean back on... 

I think the choice of outlining just Sonic and Sally in ink, and leave the nature around without sharp lines, adds to the softness of it and that feeling of home. I don't know if this was another picture where you were unhappy with the grainy finish the paper gave, but honestly it works for the whole in this one; all these surfaces that are kind of uneven "come to life" better with that kind of texture. (right, I forgot - if you do want an effect of all-covering color, like darkness, placing a "flat color" layer of solvent marker first and then coloring with pencils on that can work great.)

Thank you ^_^

I don't really have an issue with graininess here, but I have used a base color of markers before, and should probably do that again in the future.

The scenery is just spot on beautiful. I love how the sun's raise are entering possibly through the leaves. Wonderful job on drawing Sonic and Sally, they look cozy laying next to each other.
