As always ill explain me rankings for vision originality technique and impact then ill go on about other stuff i see.

Visions: the pose is nice with decent perspective (looking at the leg and back wing) the wings are a definite show of creativity and dramatically add to your illustration. The border is nice as it keeps the viewers eye on the character if it ever scans the outside of the character. which is DEFINITE plus (im a big fan of leading eye line :3) I have no idea of it would work but perhaps you could put a small shadow under her foot that is grounded.

Originality: I gave this a as its not your character but i don't know if you added anything to the costume or what not :3. But this isnt what matters here

Technique: Ok here we go :3 you did a great job with this part. Your style really shines here (Hence the wings) I personally love the way you shaded the upper legs, its a very nice gradation of value and it adds a sense of depth. However this depth is lost when our eye travels towards the outside of the character (the depth i was mentioning is created by the darker areas). To show depth in your drawing (with a single character) because you don't have objects in a setting to detail your depth. So it is because of that if you want to show perspective (like in the back leg) it would pay dividens to manipulate aspects of perspective to communicate a sense of depth. To do this I would darken the back leg as a manipulation of atmospheric perspective. The reason why i would do that is because you darkened the wings towards the center of her thus darkening other leg would communicate to the viewer that the leg is around the same distance away from the viewer as her wings are. you showed this well around her neck cloth area. Your abstract application of texture is GOOD the spots on her clothes adds a TON and keeps your drawing from being too bland. I would hold on to this habit as it will serve you well in future illustrations.

Impact: I really don't like that word "Impact" i think of that as breath taking r "wow" factor. I give you a 3.5 because your technique alone shines this piece. However due to the setting it doesn't "amaze". If you could make a background worthy enough to be the background for your illustrations then you pieces would shine even more. You background is effective as a leading eye line and color controller <------ term i made up
but other than that i really doesn't do her the justice she deserves. Abstract backgrounds work you just need to snoop around and see some techniques others apply ^^ mess with brushes and get some ideas.

Please don't misinterpret this critique. This is one of your better projects this is GOOD. But if i only praised you throughout this critique there would be no growth from it. THIS. IS. GOOD. there just more you can add to it :3 keep it up you growth is showing
What do you think?
