Absolutely amazing! The colors and technique are fantastic! I just have to say that I like her leg bent in the top three much better. In the final result I thought she was kneeling, her legs didn't make sense to me, but still it's an amazing image! You did a great job!

It's very interesting seeing your artwork progress and change a little bit, picture by picture. I love your style!

I love how you started with some old architecture and then used that form and created something that looked futuristic but it looks like you kept some of the surrounding ruins so it seems like through your process we're transported through time. 


that might not have been your goal but it makes the painting for me!

I think the legs on panel 2 and 3 are a lot more beautiful, but in the end this picture is so breathtaking that the legs don't even matter anymore. ^^

Step 3 is the best imo. I think you should keep these legs. Besides it I love your 'W.i.p tutorials " :)
