I like it. Might try defining her Right arm a bit more. Fades into the background a bit. Also might add a bit of shadow under her dress at the chest area. It looks a touch flat Really like the face. It's beauty!
In the absence of light, dark will prevail.
see my NEW sketchbook[UPDATED] http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=123027
thanks for the crits added a bit of shadow on her arm. Too late to throw a few shadows on the dress i will add a few tomorrow.
thanks again for the crits
Her right bicep seems a bit short, along with her right thumb. The fingernails look a bit hooked, Good work
The leg closest to us should be bigger then the leg farther away from us, even though I see its angled, so is the other so it should have a tad more volume.
Thanks for the crits
There is a bit of foreshort on the arm (bicep) in the ref which i did not translated well with the pic.
Leg needs to be a bit smaller.
Shoulder a bit less as i persume deltoideus and latissimus dorsi means shoulder.
I will clean her up a bit tonight and repost her.
Good catch guys.
Yes, deltiodeus = Shoulder muscle.
Latissimus dorsi = Back muscle that begins at the spine, goes over to the side and connects into the armpit.
So, what I ws trying to say is that she's got a big shoulder, and a broad/big back/side if that makes any sense.

Touch ups done.
A few problems can not be fixed without a big change her shoulder for example. I tried to make it smaller but then it has a knock on effect and the whole arm and her neck would have to be changed.
Dose not not too much diff the changes where minor
Thanks again for the crits.
I apologize in advance for the crappy paintover, but I've got a nagging suspicion you should be going in this direction, viz shoulder, back and chest muscles..
It would help tons if you could post the ref, though.
Sure here is the ref. I didn't post it with the pic as i wasn't going for a accurate depiction of the original but use it as a rough. I wanted my pic to stand on its own. Even so my one turned out very similar.
Gorgeous piece of ref. Where'd you find it?
Thoughts: You're missing the rhythm of the outstretched arm. The straightening of the fleshy female arm almost gives the effect of a double jointed liquidity, which is very fluid and feminine... to be emphasized. Emphasize also the curvilinear rhythms.
Draw what you see, no what you think you see. Notice how close the chin is to the top of the chest. Notice how the bicep of the crooked arm goes behind the forearm more than you've drawn it.
Think about the twist of the torso and how the chest has been swept away from the hips in this pose.
At least Icarus tried!
My Process: Dead Rider Graphic Novel (Dark Horse Comics) plus oil paintings, pencils and other goodies:
My "Smilechild" Music. Plus a medley of Commercial Music Cues and a Folksy Jingle!:
I don't remember the link. Took about 30 of them, all just as nice, from there freebies. I have a sneaking suspicion i got the link from the ref section on this site.
Thanks for the advice you are spot on. I should know this already it fact i do. I have difficultly applying what i have learn (read). Too many bad habits.
