You're art style has some real substance to it.  If you were to be an artist of an illustrated series - you're story line would be a strong, dark, and gloomy.  It would take some people a little time to digest some of the things that would happen.  To me this is the artwork of someone who would rather be told the truth than to be told sweet flowery lies.  

The Background - When I look at the sky, I would imagine that the time setting is some where between 5 to 6 am in the morning.  Given what's taking place and the color of the sky and clouds - it really looks like morning.  The evil queen is sitting on a throne that is situated in a castle of ruins.  Likely the ruins of a kingdom that she destroyed.  The coloring of those bricks really help this picture to be seen as dark and gloomy.  

The Queen - For a queen she's really not wearing much at all.  Her chest is almost flat like a man's chest.  She likes being free to do whatever she wants; she doesn't like to be restricted in any way and so she doesn't like to wear much.  I could see her being flat chested because that's the nature of who she is - she's not nurturing neither does she like to pleasure people in any way.  

A large sword sits there in her belly.  I could see this picture being at the end of a harsh story that takes place in medieval times.  And as a warrior approached the thrown, he thrust a sword at the queen from a distance - and landed right in her belly.  While sitting there, she really doesn't seem to show to many signs of being in pain or being uncomfortable.  That could be because a lot is happening very fast, and she's just stunned and surprised that that would have happened.  But she does have an evil look in her eyes; like she's looking at the one who threw the sword at her.  Now her dark hair is rising in the air as two horns.  Her hair is becoming smoke, almost like she's getting ready to turn into a dragon or some other vicious monster.  

Some people get turned on and aroused by looking or talking about women getting stabbed in the belly.  If you look for it, you'll find it.  But you created this picture in a way where it's not arousing at all.  It's a picture of the final evil finally being killed and destroyed.  This picture is a true blue artistic nude because it has a point and purpose, and emphasis is not overly place on her female anatomy.  

You're artwork really lends itself to making an interesting but dark comic book series somewhat similar to Conan in some ways.  

This is a very interesting and well-made picture.  Clap Clap Clap deviantART deviantART deviantART deviantART Clap Clap Clap

I love the pure yet subtle fury that even though would normally make a person angry I think this makes her all the more beautiful in a frightening way.

Christ, this has almost everything I like seeing in an artwork
Good detail
good posing
subtle story telling.
BUT
Unfortunately due to the high quality aspects of the focal point of this artwork it leaves other aspects falling short.
Such as some of the trees being barely drawn in, the sudden steam of blue which kinda throws off the coloring scheme a bit, and the not so subtle or should I say completely visible paint strokes in the stairs.

In my opinion the focal point should be supported by its background not have its other aspects crumble from the weight of being in the presence of something magnificent.
