I love the framing for this picture. Cleopatra is beautiful, drawn with smooth lines and in a soft light yet she is also striking and powerful, seeming to loom over the viewer. There is so much personality radiating from her that viewers are naturally drawn to it and her in turn. Excellent work.
However, the crocodile does not seem to add anything other than color contrast. I think it may be there to show off Cleopatra's power, having her lord over such a dangerous creature, but her power is evident enough in just her being that the crocodile isn't doing anything for me. It is just there.
I do like this picture and find you a talented artist. Whatever flaws there are here, the sheer strength of the depiction of the Queen of the Nile renders them void. This is excellent artwork.
