This is extremely well done on many counts. In addition to what was already said I really admire how you breathed life into Rune, gave her individuality, a personality and with that made her so life-like! :clap:

Many thanks, Laspe. Rune has great attributes, I've been really impressed with her skin and morph (which I modified a bit for this character). Glad you like how it turned out, cheers! :)

Beautiful.  The skin in particular is very lifelike, but I love the entire composition - I always enjoy how much depth your scenes have back away from the viewer, they really create a world for the characters.  Here there are three distinct distances - the character, the gateway (near), the gateway (far) and the backdrop.  This is the farthest possible from the low-effort pinup on a blank background that I see so often (and, I freely admit, overuse myself).

Thank you SickleYield - I really appreciate it. Portraits aren't the most natural thing for me... but I think in the classical portraits that I like most, there's quite a bit of interest going on behind the subject, so I find myself wanting to bring at least a little bit of that. :)
