Wow, this took an age to find. Which is quite a complement in my mind as its prevalence is a testament to it's quality. I also notice how well you put accross the femininity without her being scantily clad. The scene is very dynamic and really pulls you into her world by means of its intensity. The chromatic theme aids in this greatly as it emphasises the rough feel of the world. This is very well demonstrated by the background which attests both in theme and form by it's shrouded overtones tinted with blood. The small scene only barely distinguishable is so subtle as to be unnoticeable at first glance, especially in veiw of the distinct central figure and her highlights. On that subject her chromatic confluence with the scene is just right. The lighting has continuity throughout the picture and the highlights pull her foraward in a fashion not at all incongruent. I feel this my be a result of the very passive main colours and the secondary red tints that grant it cohesion. It might be a little too stark for the theme, perhaps a little garish. The finishing touches to the accoutrements are wonderful. the splayed leg guards and slight dashes of purple. as well as the somewhat dishevelled bodice which generates great theme and atmosphere.
