This will be a bit of a harsh critique but just keep in mind that the purpose is not to make you sad or lessen your efforts but to give you an idea on how you can improve and make your future efforts even better. So here it comes: The timing missing in this is that your main subject, the woman figure, is in a posture of stopped motion meaning you d expect her to keep moving. She is in the midst of a step and the next thing you visually anticipate is for her to complete. So any animation you have added just makes a still image shake. It does not make it into a "story". On the animation part it was very strong and powerful. The only thing I did not like was the overall shake of the frame that made me feel I am looking at through an approaching vehicle rather than the earth shaking effect I would imagine you went for.
I hope my critique helps more than hurts; it is all in the best of intentions.
What do you think?

The animation on its own is cool and the hair gives me a ghostly ring/grudge/dark water kinda feeling. The painting is awesome ofcourse like usual. Both on its own are great together they are clashing a bit like ntora said about the shaking.. But i feel that the character is showing a too normal pose to have such a heavy effects even tho the scene (surroundings) allows it, it looks weird to look at a female with a non powerful pose and see the effects around her. Maybe if you do the shaking to a minimum i think it will be less aggressive and give it the same calm feeling as the female itself. Adding mist will also give the animation some unity with the background.

That was an awesome animation.

I agree with one of the critiques though..

It's should end with the climax
like..say... the woman turned back and look at the camera. Something liek that.

It's really good though. :]
Like REALLY good.

I like this too, however I think there are a little 'too' much animation going on. If you just stuck with the blowing hair and the shards of blue glass stuff that rises from the woman, then you wouldn't need to have those pulasting blue orbs of light. Less is more :)
