No worries on time; A) Imagine a dragon that good was a b**** to get down (the hair on it is great!), B) Peace walker sounds like an awesome game so it taking up time is justified, and C) Akiko is never late because, of course, she can do no wrong. The chinese-esque cloud style is a really nice touch to it. The usual on the characters too; love the clothes in it (am i right thinking that's lacework around the top of the socks?).
Happy New Year to you too, and all the best throughout! Was interested in this year especially as it happens to be my zodiac (*makes poor attempt at dragon impression*
