Hello, fellow Youko contestant! :D It took a few looks to really register the flowers (nice freehand job) but I agree that you should use thinner layers of paint and wait between layers to fully dry. The texture is most visible on the cloth, giving it a really rough and heavy and roughspun feel (compared how heavy yet flowing silk can be, which kimonos/yukatas are made of). A little more highlight would given it a silky feel, too. I miss the highlights on the hair as well.

The facepaint is nice, but it also suffers from the "cakey" feel of the textured paint. 

A photo-tip (I see it was taken with a phone and phones are sadly not the best tools to take miniature photography): try to focus on the face/shoulders of the miniatures. This gives a more lifelike perspective (also follows some basic rules of portrait photography), selling the target of the picture better.

That freehand is amazing! I am not a huge fan of the mud pit base... because it calls to mind some other unpleasant brown smooshy stuff :) But rest of the paint job is spot on.
