When I first saw this artwork, I thought th character was Android 18 from the manga Dragon Ball Z.^^
Anyway, the drawing is such simple but certainly impressive. It It exudes a strong sense of uncertainty,hesitation and thinking behin the position and the gaze of the character.
What attracts me the most in your artwork is your techniques which has been marvelously used, especially on the face and the shirt. I love also how quite detailed are the strands of her hair.
However , I would have preferred to see a more work on the background to make the atmosphere more intense.
In short, it's a pleasure for the eyes !! :)

Naturally, if I had seen this, I would have given it a full 5 stars. But having seen some of you other work, I felt the need to greatly raise the bar. It appears to be very reminiscent of some of the other pieces from you that I love. I really enjoy the idea of the sun-image of her hair and the galaxy around it. It really is a gorgeous piece. But, with the standards I hold your work at, there are a few thing that could make this work perfect.
I feel like the angle that the arm is at is a bit forced and unnatural. This may be because I'm not seeing the other arm, but with the body having a slight angle it seems a bit strange to still show only one arm. The background also seems a bit blank. Maybe it could have used a bit more of the light wash that you did near the chin and back.
Overall, it is a beautiful work of art. But with many of your pieces being so very outstanding, it seems... a bit underdone.
