Looks good Robert, great to see you're officially back! I love Nojiko:D
If I may suggest though, I think your pictures would look much better if they had thicker black linings around the characters--it makes the image much stronger. The shadow on the bed was a nice touch; it would be great to see more details like that on her complexion, just like in the breathtaking Marguerite picture in the banner.
I know you just got back and are still recovering so I don't mean for you to overdo it hah...
