'And it's not a cry, that you hear at night
It's not somebody, who's seen the light
It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah'

Thanks to MjRanum Stock

To create the base the model is standing on, i followed this excellent tutorial:

overall good work author but the fire at the bottom is quite dim otherwise it would have been more better GL

Except the point that the fire looks 2D and quite dim as samanway mentioned, the rest of your image looks good to me. Good luck author!

nanaris says:

I agree with langstrum, the flames is flat try a transformation/warp and a little dodge , burn , overall the image looks fine! good luck!

First of all, you've got some talent with those clouds ; turning a common cloudy image into some epic background is something!
Who cares about the fire, there's a naked girl with dramatic sky behind her!!

j/k

"It's a cold and it's a broken Hallelujah"
You could represent "broken" by cracking the stand, but for "cold" it would take some work blending snow & icicles on that base.
If you have time you should give it a try, it would be enhanced by the lyrics in the description.

author says:

Hahaha Some really good suggestions, thank you guys. I will edit this a bit, and i also like your ideas Greymval. Cheers

Great image and just a beautiful composition. That background is killer!

Beautiful in its simplicity, nice dramatic clouds and the wings are appropriate, as they were used on the same model in a different shot. Her gauzy wrap complements them well.

author says:

Updated version:
I added cracks to the center of the platform and edited the model's position and shadow slightly. I also added an orangey glow to the fire and brightened it up a little. I'll have to keep trying for the icicles, but thank you all for the comments and the suggestions.

I love it author.... only thing is the wings, the girl has such a soft feel to her that the wings seem a bit sharp....
Im not to sure how to help that one, but if they were less perfect so to speak... i dunno..
