I love the shifting contrast from light in the left top to the dark in the bottom right. The russet colour used reminds me of rust, which could link into your mechanical angel. This is a brilliant technique to use; reflecting a character through colour/background. I really like that.
I love the fact the light is behind her too. It could resemble the hope she's left behind and the darkness she faces. I really love that this picture is empty, therefore ambiguous, the viewer can imagine anything they like when looking at it.
The devastation obviously has an emotional impact. The rubble and darkness contribute to this but I think it's the horrid rusting colour gives it even more depth to that emotion. A sense of hopelessness.
Overall, you have produced a fine piece of work. This sort of emotional attachment to a piece is rare to come by. I think I've found one of my favourite pieces on the DA

Ooh I do like this ;D I've been wanting to do something involving wings for a while, and now I happen to come across a piece thats awesome! ;D Im quite a fan of using burned oranges in art work, it gives a real sense of war for some reason.. Something apocalyptic.. Personally, I would have liked to have seen more detail.. But I guess great amounts of details are not needed in artwork where you can already clearly see whats going on.. Great piece
