There’s only one critique I’d have with the new version, which is that the ring on her left index finger is rather large and looks a bit unwieldy. But other than that, the pose is better, the shading looks much more natural, changing the lightning and energy for a circle keeps the focus on the character rather than immediately drawing the attention away, which is good. I love the use of the cape as a skirt to match with the pose, I like the custom top and the broach looks really cool. I also agree on the face being much better, she looks much more serious and badass. My favourite bit, however, has to be the wings. The effect you’ve got on them doesn’t distract from the rest of the character, it’s very subtle, but when you do notice it, it keeps the attention. Great work.
