The shoes don't really seem to fit the outfit or scene, but aside from that it is magnificent. The lighting is perfect and I love the background angle with all the wires crisscrossing behind her. It feels very much like traditional anime, with things like the bunny sitting off to the side. Not really part of the image, but a detail that you can't help but look at and feel a sense of emotion from. Overall an excellent image. Oh, and the cat is great too, looks just like my cat :)

Well, there's plenty to like and enjoy about this scene. One of its strengths is the power it has to engage a viewer's attention and hold it. Drinking in and processing all the elements and details is a true pleasure.
Taking a break from a work is understandable and healthy. Even if you never made your way back to working further on this it will stand up well as is.
I'll tell you how to measure whether it's a good work: people have been so enchanted by it that they forgot their manners. ;-)
Welcome to the arena!
I've a solid impression that this gallery will grow quite interesting before long.
With warm regard,

I think this is an excellent image, I like it very much. You asked for thoughts & criticisms. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps the lighting on the figure is a bit bright compared to the lighting on the background. The bright figure does make it stand out more, which is good in one way, but a weaker lighting would look more natural in the relation to the background. Depends what you are after. Looking forwards to seeing your next image.

This is an amazing first post. You really have done a great job of filling the scene to make it feel like a lived in place. It has a classic sense of perspective and this is enhanced by giving her outfit just a bit more color than her setting so she stands out. Also like the little extra bits, like the cat and the bunny.
Aside from the shoes, which someone else pointed out I would work on shadows. They are a bit too sharp. In poser turn your shadow blur radius up to at least 4 for the light that is casting the main shadow, i.e. the one from the right. For an image this bright set the shadow depth to about 0.8.
