My first reaction was wow, for the sunset then red shiny.

Then is started looking at it, really looking and a number of things didnt seem right. The feet, skin graduation from real to cartoon like stood out the most, (i liked the feet position) but including the incorrect shadow, just seemed wrong.

Then i noticed the impossible direction of streaming shiny red and her hair, again came across wrong, now im really questioning everything with the image, the sword position (awkward) and its purpose.

The lighting, is wrong, if her body was in this sunset etc. Now ive stopped looking at it, my suspension of disbelief broken.

Its has impact, but needs work on various elements; with me questioning every aspect, it becomes an animation like cleche. Tech i rated higher, as i still like the image, but in the fine balance between elements its was short.

TY for posting.

It was a trade, she models and gets a cool shot for her book and I get her modeling for free. The whole crew worked for free.

The ribbons and the background look amazing, I would just like to say that the feet could be better merged with the ground. Except that its a wonderful piece.
