Beautiful piece. I really like the intense lighting on the model and how the bright fire is behind her. It provides a really nice focus. And the constellations behind her are really great and I love how I like how the darkness surrounds her.
The skin is also very well done, it looks soft and the lighting is, again, great.
However, the bright lines outlining her skin seem a little strange, and don't really match the softness of her skin. Same with her clothing, great lighting and shading, but the outline is distracting. The wings are great and the level of detail in the feathers is perfect.
The hair is the only thing that seems really out of place in this piece though. I love the flow of it, but seeing every hair takes away from the rest of the piece and doesn't really match the texture of her skin and wings.
What do you think?

love the work, although not to fond of the contour lines drawn in, and the hair looks like it's purely drawn the wings as well, which kind of doesn't fit with the real girls body, although it seems you tried to make her more surreal but drawing those contour lines onto her body o.o good job

interesting title and work.
I'm not a fan of manipulations but I aprreciate your work. It's magical and a little bit (or very much!) spiritual.

You're definitely a beast with the Photoshop brush. It's crisp and the layers are blended in seamlessly.
