This came out really nice, it's clear a lot of effort was put into it too. I can see a clear difference from your other works for certain and Luna's got a nice frame around her main body that lets her torso and legs read really well, but she's lacking this frame for her head and its getting lost in the background behind it (they're very close to the same shade. usually you want to frame light against dark and dark against light UNLESS you want a certain piece to fall into nothingness, then you can allow them to merge... but for the head I don't think you would want that in this particular piece? My suggestion would be to get rid of the "rubble" line on top of the pillars and let her read cleanly against the moon since her hair is dark). Another thing I can point is to not let your marks become too unanimous. If you croshatch the background in a certain style, you need to crosshatch the cape in a different pattern r it will become one and read as a solid mass . Just try different crossshatching patterns or do contour shading (shade in the direction your cloth is falling, for example). Also remember that your foreground elements need to be much darker, so the pillars in front of her, if used as a design element, in this case would read better with a much higher contrast and a very slender backlighting. (this piece in general would be backlit due to your light source if we go by the moon) and finally I'd just say watch your proportions. Unless you're doing a realism piece, distortions usually need to (and will) say a lot about your character subconsciously. Her head seems very small on her body and this can go both ways... a character with a thick body and a small head can be read as powerful but it can also read as "unintelligent" or "clumsy", so in this case I'd say either make her head a little larger (which can be easily done wiht some free transform tricks - love photoshop!) or build her hair up to create the stronger illusion that her head is at a down-tilted angle (both are easy things to do really quick in photoshop). You'll notice Araizumi Rui actually implements big against small a lot in his works, this is usually a good design element to break the body up to have a nice flow. Now, with that said, I'll also add that the pose has a lot of good attitude in it. It reads naturally and says a lot about her. Also, oddly enough, I like the broken stone floor a lot. Anyway, sorry for writing so much... you asked for a crit and I"m procrastinating so I decided to give one D:
Enigma
if i'm kind of honest I kind of felt like I wanted to. Life was really rough for a while there, but I got through it with time and some amazing people. just kept to myself and worked til I felt like a real person again. Thanks, by the way! it's really nice to see you again too!!
Stalemate
welp, i'm blind. oh well, double xelloss never hurt anyone
Fox Eyes
Afraid not on all fronts, I'm sorry! I don't know any other crafters personally who could make this exact, and the only way I could be convinced otherwise is if I didn't have my job taking up all of my time and the full cost of the crafting + labor time was paid for, since this behemoth took a few solid weeks straight of work. As of right now, I have no intention of ever making one again due to how both labor intensive it was and my dire lack of time to devote to a prop that took nearly a month of construction.  I guess there's a slim chance in the future if i'm between jobs, but I don't see the one I have right now ending any time soon. Maybe you'll find another crafter who can make one for you.
The Behemoth
Nope, I'll never make another one. This is a one of a kind prop.
