You have a great attention to detail. I love the texture in this piece, it's elegant and "hard" at the same time. Your use of color is well balanced and you have an excellent grasp of light and dark. You've used the right amount of shadows to give your piece depth and impact without going over board and making it overly dramatic. Your line work is delicate but the lines you draw are definitive. Your piece draws the viewer in and I thoroughly enjoyed this work of art. I hope to see more and this one has already made it to my favorites gallery.

Everything about this seems to tie together really well. The colors, obviously they complement each other nicely and limit the distraction by limiting the tones. The seagulls are a fine touch. They place the location without being too obvious, and it brings a depth to the narrative that otherwise might just be "heroic pose in Mid East medieval city". The tower as compositional element throws my view off the page, after seeing the figure in the center. It doesn't really bring me back into the middle at all, but it's a nice flow to the composition regardless.

Also, the use of a female figure in what would be a traditional male societal role, while keeping the cultural raiment for her gender roughly intact, I like that.

Really cool. Reminds me a little of Assassin's Creed.

Nicely done. I like the selective use of blue in an overall warm palette. Good one.
