I like this piece immensely. The expression on her face, peering into the distance with hope, really moved me. Her eyes are a real nice touch as well, full of emotion.
The design on the armor is nice well, and is what first caught my eye. The technique is four stars for that. The etching in particular is very well done. Obviously decorative use only, or use as bowman only. Very well done.
The pose is good. Very thoughtful and well done. A glowing outline has been done before, but you managed to pull it off nicely. Well done.
Interesting background, very appropriate for a portrait view.
