Something is not working for me.
I think it is the haziness of the snow areas... are so little defined... that it is oddly distracting somehow. I like parts of it very much. But it sorta feels a bit disjointed... like the snow areas could use just a touch of that red orange in the shadow areas to link it all together or something.
sorry, i'm being vague... not sure what is bothering me.

Cool, kinda has a surreal "Maxfield Parrish" look to it.
Shirl-- I very much appreciate the constructive feedback. Your comments feel very sober, accurate, and encouraging; I will not take the good advice for granted.It's pretty and shows nice shading in the torso but what's "wrong" is a conflict of shading/depth. The cape especially, looks painted on-- it has a crisp outline fighting with the gently shadowed body which looks artificial and quite computery-- like you've placed different composite photos together and painted over them rather than constructed an integrated piece from a sketch.
The crows have some of that going as well. Finish it off and you'll have a very nice piece. Also, the algorithms of the brush strokes are showing in the background. Which does not remotely look like paint, even if you were using Painter. It'll compound if this file goes to hard-copy print. You might want to go back into the file and smooth that out. You want everything to reflect the skill shown in the torso!
Right arm also looks wonky.
