You're welcome dear, I should write critiques more often, but I'm always short on time :/
Hope it can be helpful for your future artworks !

My overall and first opinion is a really good one , I love the tones and hues used, model is well implemented into the background and the whole scenery is nicely put together.
I like how you desaturated the model skin to compliment the hair and sky and create a gloomy atmosphere. There is also a good amount of work on the hair, and a good digital painting of the many strands of hair, the lighter ones are a nice addition and give a good sense of depth to the hair.
However some things could be slightly improved : the strand of hair coming across the face is intriguing but I first I thought it was a long scar (which is ok too ^^), if it’s hair it could have been a little distorted and more flowy and go softly along the edges of the nose in a more curvy way.
Hair added on the left side could be a bit more incurvated too to give a more natural flowy look.
Tattoo on the arm is a nice touch, though a little bit awkward. However tattoos are really complicated to add in photomanipulation, so, so far, you’ve done a good job. Personally I would have placed the crow’s head a bit lower on the arm and I would have changed the color to a more blueish tone to compliment the skin tone at this very place.
Last, I really like the crows in the background, they look like they’re in the distance and they create a good perspective, however you could have kept one or two more visible (by using a real crow instead of a brush) to create more depth.
Finally I love how the touches of light you added on the face and the blue eyes that really stand out.
It’s a good piece, keep up the great work !

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this critique, thanks also for the tips on hair painting, I have to admit that I am not excellent at this, and all the tips/ideas are welcome ^^

You're right for the hourglass it's a bit too dark, I always see those little flaws once th image is posted (of course ^^) I will make a small edit :)

Once again thanks so much for your critique, it is really appreciated :hug:
