Great piece to study composition from, love the use of a circular theme to frame the action.

Really awesome piece. However, i think the face of the monochrome version should have stayed because it fits better with the "beauty vs beast" kind of theme which is further refined by the black vs white/holy (dooves and halo)
With the old face i felt more sorry for her and was more convinved that she would die. The new one makes her seem somewhat too strong imo.
Watched a few videos on your channel, cool stuff - hearing your thoughts on 40k designs is interesting.
I like it alot *comissar voice* i'll be watching you

thanks for the feedback- I just didn't feel the original sketch was intense enough- I really wanted that fervor to show.
