After a little more critiquing this morning, and a few more adjustments, I'm amending this post rather than starting a new one again. I'm hoping I didn't go too heavy now. I have a tendency to shade, then blend it almost all away, don't know why I just always end up going "soft" but that isn't always good and what I really want is intensity and drama I think. Great lighting effects always draw my attention in other peoples work and I just can't seem to get there myself. Oh well, that's what practice is for right.
After playing a bit more, this is where I am. I like it better. So, I went from not disliking it to kinda liking it. I definitely am liking the wings better than before. Thanks for the input! It is very helpful to have other eyes and opinions and I appreciate it!
