First of all, I want to apologize for not being able to leave this comment sooner. If you haven't already seen the results of the contest, I have posted them here: fav.me/d9zk6a5
I think this is quite an improvement since you did your Neiva pic! You have a really noticeable style and the colors are WONDERFUL. I thought the glow on the sword against the background of a similar color gave the image this really cool mood, and like Creative2Bit said, her hands look great! I hope you are able to enter the contest again next year, and thank you so much for entering this year!
