You obviously know what you're doing - and I see great skill in anatomy & esp. the technique, with the way you've added the strokes and the lighting. My only wish would be to have the piece as a more complete thought- it trails off and I'd like there to be more. Not more of the girl, but maybe complete the story - the headdress is interesting & I'd like to know more about who this woman is, etc.

My only comment would be to touch up the hair around the eyes - with all the beautiful detailing on the skin, it's a bit detracting. :)
What do you think?

It's a striking piece. The eyes are what I think does it. They look so empty yet there is certainly life there.
I think more thought could have been put into the background. The difference in contrast to the foreground is a bit of a jump and though the light above her head seems as though it may be some kind of halo or ethereal ligh, it also seems to sit in the background like a loosely rendered cloud form.
The addition of some clothing on her naked form to match the style of the headpiece would have been a nice addition as well.
I almost think the piece overall would have been served better to have less detail in the less important areas like feathers and hair and the sharp highlight in her nostril is a bit out of place.
Some of the nice blues in the background would have been nice to see coming through as reflected light in the shadows on her neck.
