I don't think the reflection is right, it goes out too far. But it's a very skillfully done skeleton painting!

not sure if the globe glows or not. if it does, there shouldnt be shadow under the fingers where they touch the orb...

The teeth kind of seem like they're floating to me because of the sharp black outlines, maybe it's just me though. Also, I think that hand is a bit too soft considering it's so close to the camera. I know you probably did that so the focus is on the skull, but I think working on getting a nice contrast and detail on those irises(there is usually a thin black ring around the iris) will draw all the attention to the skull anyways since we naturally like to stare at eyes first. You wouldn't have to add a ton of detail to the hand either, just tighten up the edges that are already there.

Awesome work!!!
I like it a lot... Great design and perpective, I feel the lighting needs a little work, some stuff doesn't feel rigth.
But overall excellent work.

It is, but the orb is in focus which would make at least the fingertips in focus. It just looks weird to me the way it is now.
