For me, her beauty is a complete thing. I can't see it as damaged, with the connotation of harm and hurt and flawed, all I see is an artistic aesthetic of beauty, each part (the pose, the style of clothing, the colors, the textures, the lines) making a whole, with nothing lacking. 

Don't know if your title was meant to convey a different concept- perhaps her conquest or graceful transcendence of the damage (represented quite physically, but rooted more personally close and permanent, dug deep and unrelentingly incorporated to her life) in allowing herself to cultivate something beautiful and letting it exist...? I dunno, any more info?

that's beautiful, you included so many different textures and it looks so real, and the detail is wonderful, from the design in the belt to the hairpiece, great job!
