You need to re-evaluate the photoshop work on this. Her leg, ass,(in the front reflection) disappear into the other one, its unnatural. Normally, you guys do such a detailed job, this ruins the composition.

Other than that the different angles in the reflections coming together is very neat to see, different angles of the same expressions and forms.

Less blur might also help this feel more intimate, as it not only eats away at the sharp, and soft forms but it takes away from the overall composition which seems to be about the reflections here.

Also, are the candles in the scene actually present, or were they added after? Their reflections seem to be lit up in the one view, but the light bouncing from them doesn't appear to be making it further into this scene, perhaps it was also over aggressively edited out?

I really like the expression here, but when I look at this, and I've taken a look at it a few times, I almost feel like you missed an opportunity to continue that expression by hiding her eyes - but that's just my opinion. I really do enjoy how the roots, or alien plasma seems to be an extension of the hair here.

I feel like there is a story here, but I don't really understand what that is, perhaps taking the time to draw in something in the environment, would help with that, instead of having the blurred background and the sharp foreground.

I think also that you did a wonderful job accenting the detail on the alien (or tree?) thing, but because some of the roots hanging off it have an almost different organic profile, its reading a little confused for me, and therefore (going back to the story here?) I am a little lost as to if this person is in a dark forest, or being abducted.

Well, I might be up for some gameage :) or some art crunching.

I haven't used paint sai very much, but does it have layers? Layers would help you a lot, cause you can build your line work first, to make sure stuff is great, then lay flat colors down on another layer, then doing depth shading in another layer, then add more light contrasts on another layer, and so on. Starts to make it way easier when you introduce layers, something I'm learning to do in my own work, even in 3d.

Your perspective lines are a bit off, giving this painting a bit of a wonky feeling, draw lines from the floor back, you'll see what I mean. Because of that, your reflection is also off, it appears flat instead of a real reflection. You also indicated here there is moonlight, but you haven't actually put any lighting into the scene.

I do like your shading here tho, on the buildings, they feel gritty at least, but nothing indicates depth so it kinda is flat. A good tip for that is never use black, always use some kind of dark shade of blue, or purple it will help you indicate your shadows further and be able to grade the dark so it wont end up just flat.
