Um... I know the AC is on the fritz, but maybe don't sit next to the window that's clearly been shot through before.

Oh man, you've got some serious skill! I'm going to struggle to find things to critique on this, so that means it's gonna get nit-picky. =P

There's a whole lot going on here and the overall effect is fantastic. Little details all add up to create a strong sense of hyper-realism all the way through the different layers of focus, from the leaves up the front, through the main character into that amazing background. I like the way the above-and-behind lightsource brings out the colour of her hair and the trim on the jacket as well as the plant leaves.

You've made great use of textures throughout this, the trim on the coat, the shirt, the sleeves and the couch itself. It adds a lot of great detail to the piece. I have a suggestion that you might be able to implement to make it one teeny bit better though. I presume what you've done here is used a texture brush to create the texture, but it gets a bit... linear in places. For example, considering the wonderfully shaded folds in her shirt there, the texture continues straight, even though the fabric is clearly curving. I'm no expert here, but I've made a few, probing attempts to conceal my use of texture brushes. In Photoshop, I quite like the Edit -> Transform -> Warptool and maybe even Filter -> liquify. I do my texture on a separate layer, so I can warp it without disrupting the outline of the thing the texture is on. It's quite easy to use warp to apply a simple curve to a texture, which I think would be good for say, the stocking there. The leg is curved, but the texture is flat. Using warp could just add a little extra realism in a few seconds. It certainly gets a lot harder around fabric folds like for the shirt though, but I think you can probably get away without it being perfect there, since it is really such a small thing.

I'm sure there is probably a better way to do it (and if you find one that works for you, I'd genuinely like to know), but warp and liquify have been the approaches I've been experimenting with. I'm not sure what the analog to these tools is on other programs, so my apologies if you use something other than Photoshop, but hopefully you get the idea and will be able to find a way in whatever program you use. :)

Overall though, as I said, it's a great picture with a great variance of different things all done very well. I love the smoke and I love how you've made the city behind the glass sliiiightly blurry compared to out the broken window. Very cool! :#1:

thanks for the tips! I'll play around with the liquefy tool when applying textures next time

No problem! I'm still getting to grips with liquify, although it seems to be the more powerful tool out of it and warp. Warp is pretty quick and dirty for simple curves, but I'm sure with a bit of practise you could really get some good results with liquify. :)

I thought that fur lining was her arms before I clicked on the picture and spent way too long trying to figure out why she was sitting like that.
The fur around her eyes look like eyelashes, really cool!

Mary said the same thing (when she looked on her phone). Evidently the color of the coat and her fur looks more similar on certain screens than others.

And Jastra's eyelash game ridiculous ;P

Damn those details are great. I also love you used Corellia for the setting. I imagine she's in deep guilt about what happened with Tyrran's Dad now that she's seen how great the family is.
