This is a rather interesting perspective. The title of "The Messenger" sort of suits - with the black hood and the expressions it looks either like the Angel of Death or a messenger bringing forsaken news. The 'crows' in her hand (as I see them) seem to be the real messengers. over all an amazing aura that you have created with this work. Keep it up :)

This painting is beautiful. I love the combination of dark blues and greens and blacks in the background and how she just kind of fades into them. The way in which you've done the skin is lovely and I love the hints of green and blue in her shading. And the hair... just wow. The ravens/crows are also such a great touch! Great work!

To me, it feels like she's letting go of freedom. I dunno if that's what you intended but amazing painting non the less. :)
