Good day! I hope you won't mind a critique on this piece in occasion of Critmas. Let's begin, shall we?
The first thing that struck me about your work was your detective's expression and stance - which is exactly wnat you wanted me to see. This is a half-panicked, half-determined stance, which tells us just how much the setting is dangerous for your protagonist.
Moreover, the depiction of a sneaking, nosy character meddling where she doesn't belong is excellent, and the menacing camera with its blood-red LED draws the gaze just as much as the detective, helping to piece together this work's overall vibe.
This is completed by the scattered papers stamped as "top secret" - which initially gave me the impression your character is in fact a thief, rather than a reporter. A thief on the run, too.
Her leather-looking cuirass adds to the mood as well - I've yet to see such an armored reporter, myself. Half-hoping her bosses pay her enough for the risk.
Lastly, the perspective you picked for this piece is possibly the aspect that mist of all hints at you being adept at digital art. The intent is to underline the arm that's pinning the papers against the wall and you achieve that flawlessly - I've seen people mess that angle up more than I can count.
We're now to the nitpicking part, where I pretend to find a flaw in your piece. While there's nothing really tragic to highlight, I'm of the opinion that darkening the environmental tints could've boosted the feeling of mystery and danger all the more.
That, though, is a matter of personal taste.
Keep up the great work!
