thanks for looking :)
Awesome piece!
The details and stances are just incredibly beautifully made, as well as the weapons and the armor/clothes.
Especially the right chacter is well made. The colors mix awefully well together, and i especially admire your choice of the red cloth with the colden armor (If possible, or just for fun, it could awesome to see a version of only the right character where you change the red color into blue)

The angel, however, is slightly off. Her overall posture and anathomy seem somehow below your level, and especially the wings and the hair seem unrealistic compared to what you have made in the past. The arm and her clothing is very well made, though, along with the sword and her tattoos.
I especially like the 'crown' she's wearing.

Then i'll give you some suggestions that are purely just my own opinion on how to improve the piece:
The angel's hair should be slightly shorter, and perhaps be moved to the side of the head that we cant see, so that it can flow the way natural hair would, straight from the roots - which would, if flowing on the side of the face we can see, hide the face.
The wings should, in my opinion, be completely reworked. If you can possibly look up wing anathomy or something it would be great, and try to sketch out the inner bones, and then see the way they actually look like hands.
Think of them as extra arms, im sure that would help!

Overall, the background fits the piece incredibly well, and I have nothing more to point out.
Keep up the good work!

For a battle the poses feel very weak. I don't feel any power coming from this. It almost seems like two actors just kind of posing and standing with weapons.

I really like the person on the right. The detail and colours are very nice and so is the design.

The angel feels a little bit bland in comparison but I do like her overall. The way the wings were drawn make them feel 'fitted' into the frame and appear to lack much structure. They should probably be taken with the flow of her hair and her outfit but they don't seem to be affected by the wind pushing everything to the right.

Overall though this is very nice. Hopefully these help a little. :)
