To start off, I'm not one much for kawaii-desu, or however this type of art is pronounced.
That being said, I know a work of great effort and talent when I see one, and you've definitely worked on this hard.
I love the shading here. It's so subtle, but it works so well, how you use the shadows and the lack of light to make the moon seem so much brighter, and to pull together the pinks and the blues and the yellows without seeming to make and of the colors clash. Certainly they stand out, but not in a dizzying, jolting sort of way.
I love the subtlety of detail. It's one of the great strengths of the piece. Your costumes and cloud shapes are so thoroughly developed, but they don't seem overplayed. There's no variations or instances of 'metal skin' (something that happens when graphite artists overshade a work). That being said, with all of the detail that went into this, I'm disappointed by the somewhat rudimentary speech bubbles. To me, they feel 'jotted down' - very in contrast to the rest of the highly finished work.
I think you've captured the scene very beautifully. His expression, her body language - all expertly conveyed. The strength is in the subtlety here, and this work is a whisper of gorgeous. The colors are perfect.
