A pretty solid middle ground between "sexy" and "practical". Not too much of the former to suspend disbelief, not too much of the latter to be interesting.

Gorgeous!  Enchanting face and posture.  The clothes are beautifully imagined and rendered.  For some reason she makes me think of Hayley Williams. . .

I really like this piece... The pose is bad-ass and a-symmetrical armor is always awesome. However I don't like the exposed upper thigh. She could use more coverage on her chest but I think the upper thigh is an even stranger place to leave bare

Some armor and weapon designers need to cooperate with some Skyrim, Fallout, Dragon Age Modders. If a armor like that would be able to wear in this kind  of game, some people would be jumping through the room caused by awesomeness.

What i actually want to say. Amazing work.

Like most of the others on here I must compliment you on this piece. It looks fantastic.

Some constructive criticism, if you're going with half-plate armor then you should put a bit more thought into practicality.
She should be armored fully on the one side that will always be facing the enemy. The split design you have would leave her far too vulnerable.
Also a long sword would be one of the least ideal weapons to utilize with this particular armor style. It is a slash type weapon style which would leave her unarmored half highly exposed.
Straight line attack weapons like the spear or rapier would probably be better choices in my humble opinion.

Again, fantastic artwork. Keep up the great work.
