Carnival Knight by Tigermix

I've been anticipating seeing this picture get colored, and now that I've seen it, I'm very impressed. The first thing that strikes my fancy is the colour, of course. You've done a magnificent job capturing the essence of a carnival. The shading is quite unique as well, especially on MK's hat and mask, although the banner could use a little more of it. The background is fitting, but I think it needs a little more flair than just black with a few dots for stars (like, maybe make the bottom the horizon, since MK's up in the air). I like the approach for the Ferris wheel where it looks like a silhouette in the background. As for the layout, I like how you have MK just up there watching everything while juggling some cards. It's a refreshing sort of look to the character! :D
If I were to nitpick, then I would say the balloons look like a different style of shading is used which is a tad bit distracting, and if you look closely, a little of the red balloon's color bleeds into the yellow's. It's also a bit unclear what Meta's sitting on (to me anyway..), and his feet could be a bit larger.
Overall, great picture, great concept, and Meta Knight looks sufficiently mysterious and badass even with the carnival outfit. ^-^
Just a note: this is my first formal critique, so I apologize if I'm a bit hard on you..

Thank you for critiquing!
I was pretty anxious to get this colored too and I think now since I don't have as much anxiety, I can finish it up correctly.

It's not a problem at all if this is your first critique. I appreciate it! c:
