The more I stare at this, the cooler it gets. The first thing that caught my attention was the contrast, I ADORE the contrast and the composition. The stylization of the grass and the blood is awesome too, and I love all the different textures. The shadows are amazing too.. you really are very skilled.

I do have some crit though. The anatomy on the arm and the hand are a little unrefined, and don't seem to match the level of detail and definition on the legs. The same goes for my first impression of the face. When I look at it now, I can see that it's well done, but I think it's... I don't know, maybe it's too typical, straight-foreward fantasy fanart style. The eyes are too well-defined.. from the rest of your style, I guess I expect them to be more impressionistic; conveying the emotion rather than the anatomy. It threw me off.

Ok, this image is the proof that thumbnails don't do ANY justice to the actual work - I was floored by the detail that suddenly appeared! Her face is amazing.
