Beautiful beautiful work on this picture. I LOVE the way you made the light reflect off of her armor like that. It brings so much drama into it.

Love the colours so much on thi, it certainly doesn't look rushed. The detail on her really brings her into the focus of the image. And the sky looks great too. I wouldn't like to be THOSE guys!

OMG big difference from what you did during school!

I like the fish eye effect... makes it dramatic, but I wish it was a bit less of it. I wish I can explain why but that's just what I thought ^^;

This is amazing. The composition of this is amazing; the emotion you get from it is so intense. The lighting on the armour is very good as well, and I love the rich colours. The attention to detail is very good too; the metal of the main character's armour is so nicely rendered.
