Nice job. I love Cross. I drew a really crappy picture of him in pencil. If you look for "General Cross" in the search bar, and click "Newest", it should be the first, second or third. Either way, it's light!
It's got wonderful colours and tones, and the atmosphere seems to be perfect -- no wonder why you've so many favs!
But honestly; It's amazing. The watercolor/canvas effects make it look almost as if they were different coloured, Hollywood-style splatterings of blood from a gun. And thus, Judgement. The flowers seem to unexpectedly bloom from his back, and they (along with the chains) seem to be a part of Cross himself. The chains also serve as a means to visually 'connect' him and Maria more, and the way they are shaped are similar to the way music notes are usually drawn in flowing, anime/manga styles.
(Okay, must start new paragraph.)
The shafts of light/shadow are quite a pleasant contrast to the picture. And it automatically reminds you of an organ's pipes, which connects to church, and then to Dark Religious Organization. The stains on his legs are also like blood, kind of like sins he has committed during his life...that reminds me. Before I continue...
...Also, to add to that 'sinning' effect, the chains continue and seem to 'bind' his legs together, noticable due to the wonderfully contrasted cyan behind it.
All in all, this is a wonderful Deviant and I should really stop typing since my fingers hurt. There is a lot more I'd want to add, but I've typed enough as it is.
