That seems like too much blood to me, but I don't know. I've never had my finger cut off :)
The rest of it is breathtaking. I especially love the door and the stone; they look wonderfully real in a storybook sort of way.

This is brilliant! It's tiring to see the frequency of drawings posted on dA in which the artist doesn't fully explore the abilities of their medium. You use your pencil very well!

I love the mood of this, with the black-and-white/sepia tone, the girl's soft reflection in the door, and the ravens all around (especially that one perched on top of the arch). It's kind of a muted creepiness, like everything is quiet and just waiting for something to happen.

Do you draw these scenes all from your head? Or do you have references on hand?

I use a lot of reference, I'm good at drawing architecture from my head but not people.
