Thank you for the comments, everyone! I'll try to draw a happier picture next time, hehe.
I'm glad to get feedback of the background too, even though I made it in about 2 minutes. I guess it does look more like a cloud than snow, but I like your interpretation, Embala. Positive thinking! (I'm usually too lazy with backgrounds, I should practice more.) But now that you said so, it does give a mystic touch, I think.
And Sofia, Chaldan is indeed devastated! And so is poor Kayda, but she's taking it a bit better than her father. Now on to design my Glider, and to draw Xiu's elf!
