Really really cute!

I love how DeviantART is on the computer, and there's a sort of Naruto-look-alike on the manga. It really brings out the fun-ness of the picture!

I like the little chibi-like-mini-character-helpers, It's so cute!

It looks like she's an assistant that's really comfortable at her work? To wear her shirt like that and no shoes? I think it's pretty cute, and gives it the more friendly point of view in the drawing.

What got me insanely into laughing fits was the little mini person that is getting like killed under the papers, haha. XD

I like the shading, but it could use a little bit more around her leg-area, and stuff. But so far I like it. :3
What do you think?

This is a really cute picture! Despite the relaxed pose of the main character, the little assistants give the scene energy. The shading is good, and your attention detail is very impressive. I especially liked how she is on deviantArt. XD The only thing I really noticed is her right leg doesn't appear to be as foreshortened as it should be, due to perspective. It seems to me that the foot should be just a bit smaller, and both legs should be shaded a bit darker near the bottom, to account for being farther away from the light. Other than that, though, this picture is awesome! C:

Great stuff, full of cute little touches and yeah the deviantart page on the monitor gives it a little something extra.
I wish I had assistants like that! :D

If it's not too impolite, may I ask why you've stopped drawing Manga? I'm curious to know if it's something you just got burned out drawing or is it possibly that you have a different drawing style or styles that you prefer to create.
I'm still overwhelmed with this particular work of yours. And it's not just how amazing you are as an artist, it's that plus the many small details you came up with and included that make this piece one that really stands out. The very idea of this scene is brilliant. I love to look at it and find things I missed.
I don't want to pressure you or anything, I just had to let you know how much I sincerely enjoy your work and creativity. This particular work made me smile the first time I ever saw it and each time I come back to it. That's a huge feat for this audience. Kudos to you!

I'm starting to think I'm too old to drawing manga with teenages...
