Two things to note, that left arm seems a little long (wrist area especially), and she must be super tall, her body is kinda long lol (shifting her hips just a little to the right would probably fix this?)
Other than this I absolutely love this. Very nice job. The fabrics are amazing

I always have to wonder what the story is behind each of these. Is there some mythology incorporated?

Actually no.. but for this particular one, it's about the cucuk sanggul (Malay lady's hairpin) that is traditionally used as a weapon for women.

gold on a brunette always reminds me of Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Gorgeous colors and textures as well as pose and subject.


....

dear me, is that blood on her dress?

only two critiques. i think you should reference on the hands and lower body anatomy. your legs seem to do some odd twisting and turning that's not realistic. (around the hips, this image and the blood and poison)

the colors flow nicely in the piece; however, the titles in the series are rather strong even though the actual image has very subtle depiction to the title. when i look at this i dont see... meat and metal :shrug:

your transclucent materials are amazing and your wrinkles and folds make me think of old painted mountains :aww:

You've got a slight proportion problem there. Her lower abdomen is too long. Her butt should be right up to where her abdomen and her thigh pass each other. Imagine if she stretched her legs out, it would look weird and unhuman with such a long abdomen. Also, is her leg bleeding? Other than these, this is great. Colors, shadow, everything is really good.
