i like the composition and the colors the photo gives a lot of feel to it, altho i have a quiestion, and i don't mean to be a pain, but is it the aztec calendar in the back? cuz... ixchel is a mayan godess.. xD
Very nice composition. Very eye catching. That background looks like a book cover I saw as a child. I think it was called "wonders of the world" or something like that. But that may just be coincidence.
I like the way you put it together. The composition flows wonderfully.
When I first saw this, I'll be honest: I couldn't quite decide what I thought about this. It's probably the brown, on a purely personal level, I do not much go for brown. That aside, the background piece looks great, really striking. It could almost be a tribal head dress that the figure is wearing, which then gives way to a bizarre but effective fusion of time periods (and stories of the character too).
There is nothing at all wrong with this piece, Fi, I suppose it just doesn't speak to me quite like all your other works. I'll still be back for more though, you can guarentee that.
