In no way do I mean to discourage you or discredit your sheer talent (I seriously love your work), but the intense lighting should also produce an intense shadow the closer it gets to the light source; I really think adding some defined shadows on her wing where the shadow from the candle falls would really make Aurora pop out.
Again, sorry if I offended you. Critiquing artwork just gives me a better appreciation of it and I just wasn't sure if you were aware of that. Chances are, it was intentionally left out, and I'm preaching to the crowd.
Wonderfully executed! Aurora is not an easy illustration by any stretch, and that you managed the dark colors - in the dark - is very, very commendable. You also managed her library, which is also no easy feat.
