Hello :wave: Here for the request :)

+-+

TECHNIQUE & EXECUTION:
Love how everything gits together and the color scheme you choose.

Some things i would change: The butterfly on her shoulder should be more realistic to fit the whole image. I think finding another more HD would make it work. It looks a bit painted when the rest looks very realistic. There is a part of the wings that should be smudged a bit to fit the blurriness of the wing itself, left top.

For the hair i would use a smaller brush to make more realistic strands with the same color as the highlights on her hair. Maybe also add some darker strands on her face and shoulders.

I think a stronger eyes colors would look great, i think blue would make here eyes pop :)

For some reason her clothes look not so black as her neck adornment. Maybe add a overlay on that with shadows & highlights would work.

Overall there is not much to fix, love how you decided to use the resources and the vintage color i see.

Hope my suggestions help you in your journey & remember critics are here to make our mistakes into masterpieces, not to make you feel bad or be mean :hug:

And for the watchers, remember to be original, and look but don´t touch. Don´t steal, don´t claim as your own and for the love of god, don´t sell images that don´t belong to you :heart:
