This painting was worked over for about 2 and a half days in Painter. Single layer and using 2 brushes. I hope that the pic itself isn't too dark. Brutal feedback is always helpful
Awesome mood and composition in this piece, for sure. I think the darkness fits well with it.. although I do think that the magical stuff in her hand needs to be a tad bit more contrasting with the background. Also, make the light in her hand shining on her body, it'll be more dynamic imo. Good luck and keep up the good work.
