I have to say this looks really fantastic!
Your style is very realistic and the colouring and shading are excellently executed.

Furthermore the composition is lovely!
I love how she stands amidst these cute bunnies with the earth and sun in the background.

The only thing I just noticed now is that her legs seem a bit dislocated from her upper body because they are a bit too far right. They should be moved a bit more to the left.

Furthermore, the lights looks amazing, I think you greatly managed to combine these two light sources.

However, everything else, the colours and the fluffy rabbits are amazing.^^
What do you think?

Your attention to detail amazes me again! Each time I finish looking at one area, another one sucks me in. Altogether it's a beautiful illustration. Some of the textures are quite lifelike (her fuzzy bunny ears, her hair), but then her flawless skin (which is excellently shaded) and the flat colors on the bunnies and the orderly patterns on her dress give away the unreality (they are too perfect.) But that's fine. They are on the moon after all. XD

Seeing where you're going with this series has me looking forward to the next in the series. :) The Dragon, right? (Is this going to be in order starting from the Tiger, or random?)

Thank you so much for commenting! :) I appreciate it tons ^^ Haha and yeah hair is my favorite part to make so I always put extra time into it, I'm glad you noticed that :D

If ever you're interested by the side story of the drawing, here's the explanation : It's actually a depiction of japanese traditional "mochitsuki" or "mochi-making" ceremony during christmas/new year (mochi is a rice cake made of glutinous rice pounded into paste and molded into the desired shape). The rabbits are wearing traditional japanese festival costumes and headbands and the girl a chinese dress (to fit the chinese zodiac theme) with a cuter/ more frilly style XD
The hammer is in fact a wooden mallet (called "kine") they use to pound the rice in a traditional mortar (called "usu")

And about what the rabbits are doing there it's because of the folklore saying there's a rabbit that lives on the moon (based on the markings looking like a rabbit pounding in a mortar and pestle on the moon). The story exists in many cultures, particularly in Aztec mythology and East Asian folklore. Here's the said markings ([link]) so it looks like the rabbit is making mochi for japanese people ^^

Thanks a lot for your comment, It makes me very happy to have your review, as always :)
I have to agree about the earth, it's actually a picture I took from Google haha XD When I started the drawing I also felt like it was looking too much like a photo but I ended up too lazy to draw the whole eart all by myself haha XD
