Ah, you have focused on the "sexiest" view of a maiko--the back of her neck!  Very nice :)

There's something a bit off about the back of her neck or maybe it's her shoulders...
Other than that, i really love this. The colors are great, the shading is quite interesting & it really shows your talent through the peace. I wish I could have seen her face, I'm sure it would have looked amazing - drawn-wise anyways.

Lovely colours! :)
It looks like her shoulders might not be wide enough, but that could be because of what she's wearing.
The hair is really well done, especially considering how hard I find it to paint decent looking hair with watercolours^^

I really like the colors in this. The shading style isn't something that I've seen much of so I actually really like it. Her hair accessories looks like they were tedious to do since it seems rather detailed. Nice work.~

This is very beautiful ^^ But it doesn't represent a Geisha, instead it looks like a Maiko ^^ I thought you might be interested to know that ^^ Geisha look completely different from this

I also noticed it when I looked over the submitted drawing.
Only a Maiko wears a red collar, or?

Well, there are quite a few differences between a Geisha and a Maiko besides just the collar color. Geisha don't wear so many kanzashi (The hair ornaments) in fact the hair is in a completely different style. There are a few variations considering the a few factors (Whether she has just had her erekie or if there is a certain festival going on), but generally the back of the hair style will look like this [link] the Obi is also not tied quite so high up on the back of a Geisha since it is tied lower. (The obi of a maiko is tied over her breasts, almost to the collar bone, while the obi of a geisha is tied like a normal obi around the mid section, this is to exude maturity and experience for geisha , and innocence and youth for Maiko) From your picture, I can actually tell that this would be a Maiko in her first year of training (It takes about 5 years of training for a Maiko to make her way to becoming a geisha.) that's because of the kanzashi that is dangling by her face ^^ Sorry, I'm quite interested in the Maiko and Geisha culture so I can go on about it forever.
