Very strong picture. The strength of her expression and features really drives this piece for me! I really love how you drew her hands, they feel delicate and realistic. It also really suits the character for me-feminine, yet strong! The hair looks great in this piece, I really like the detail you put into drawing hair. The shading is very stylistic and works well for this piece. I like the shapes created across her skin resulting from the shading, I think it really adds to the interest of this piece. I would have liked to see a background, even subtle like the previous picture I commented on, but this piece is still strong without it. My only other suggestion would be to not be afraid of going super dark with the shading. That was something I have been critiqued before in the past, and I think it was a valuable lesson to learn. Having a larger range of shading really adds to the depth of the piece Overall its very lovely!
PS the materia is great!
