Wow. Both spooky and darkly beautiful at the same time. Refreshing to see that you use more than one type of theme to your art. Excellent. :)

Wow, this is so beautiful! I love the earthy tones you used because they portray that vintage, dark feel nicely. I also like the girl's hollow eyes and her cold expression, it just sets her as this distant, icy being. The ravens in the back are a nice touch and I like how some of them are kind of faded, which makes them much darker and foreboding creatures. Good job on this! :)
