SO this is meant to be a portfolio illustration, not for any project or assignment, or anything important. What I want to know is what you think of it as a piece, the feeling it puts forth, and of course I WANT CRITIQUE. I just need to make sure it shines, you know?

Thanks!

The background is reflecting a light source from the complete opposite direction to the figure in the foreground. The wings seem to be ignoring both sources. Her hair seems to be generating a light source of its own.

A bit of utter confusion there. Also some incongruity between the action-orientated pose and the static background, would advise trying to make the background a lot more "dramatic", compared to the idyllic scenery it is now. Good luck, man.

So do you reckon I should have reflected light from the hair on the wings, and perhaps some light coming through the feathers? I havent added the sun yet, but it will be behind her, out of view.

If you think it would work, sure. Like I said, it was more confusing then anything else. It sounds like a good way to address it though.

I actually see what you mean now with the structures. the light sources are way off. Lol this is precisely why I post things!
