I really want to like this, and stylistically, I love it. The color and shading is fantastic, but on the fighting action I would like to offer some construction criticism! As far as the pose goes, Riven's not even bracing herself and she's standing with her feet together. That's really, really bad fighter technique, and doesn't add any power to the piece. I mean, she's not even bracing her sword, it's against her chest! Try giving Riven a wide stance and a more savvy swordswoman technique in a future piece.
This! This is what I always love to see. To have great artwork capture the characters in action. I have great love for great character art, but to see it in action instead of only static poses is what makes good artwork truly great. The positioning, character poses and background all add to the awesomeness of this peace. I am both truly and pleasantly surprised by this. Thank you for it.

Really nice stuff, I like the intense feeling between these 2. Its like Riven was caught in the jungle, and Kayle has pretty much lunged in for a 1v1 sword battle. I also like the angle the characters are at, gives it a more action-packed scene.
The colouring work looks neat, especially on Kayle's armor and the Redeemed outfit, nicely done. Even the glow on Riven's sword is cool, its not too strong of a glow, but you can see it glowing with life.
^_^ Anyways, hope to see more cool stuff from you.
