What I really loved about this was the softness (especially that gown/dress she was wearing!!!) of the subject you portrayed and how their beauty was enhanced by the palette you chose, the background, and where you placed the light source. You did indeed a terrific job shading this vision. It's stunning! Angel is a fitting title :) The texture of her hair contrasted well with the clouds (or is that a wing?) and her skin. You also captured her expression very well. My favorite thing is are the roses on her dress. However, there seems to be something off about the way she is twisting around. Her body is positioned perfectly up until the waist, where it seems like you switched from a back view abruptly to a side view (check your proportions, maybe?). It might just be the way you draw people but it nagged me a little. Also, there seems to be another light source coming in from the bottom right of the picture, since there are more rays slanting in at a different angle than the source in the background. That subtracted to the impact a bit. But overall, good job! <3

6 out of 6 deviants thought this was fair.

The job you did on shading and creating the transparency on the cloths is absolutely phenomenal; don't give up working on that, it's EXCELLENT work.
In addition, the work you did on the sky and clouds is fantastic, and the way you manipulated the cloud showing above her left shoulder is beautifully done; allowing it to look like a wing added a great touch to the overall feeling of the picture.
The addition, as well, of the falling feathers/petals also contributes greatly to the flow the the work, allowing it to guide the eyes from the forefront to the main focus (the face and background region); both of which you did masterfully, and only accentuates the idea of the cloud being an angel wing.
The only qualm I would say with this picture would be the angle of her arm; the twist that it has is semi-unnatural, and seems as if it would be forced into that position. Other than that, her physical layout is fantastic, showing a soft figure, but possessing more character and personality than just being someone/something to look at.
-I think she deserves a good back story :heart:
Overall: 9.9/10, I wouldn't harsh too hard on the arm because it's not a major focus (other than the hand being a focal point on the visual movement), and because it doesn't detract from the beauty of the piece at all. Excellent job.

I totally love this picture.  The lighting from top to bottom is beautiful.  And the angle wings "hinted" through the clouds is both clever and interesting.  Definitely one of my new favorites!
