    Hers left arm is too close to the body (in shoulder region). I dont understand where is horizon. I see some hills in back, but if it is horizon than stone on left is not drow well.

    Her right arm should be bent, not outstretched, if you want her hand on her knee... But in any case, this pose is incredibly uncomfortable. Why would you prop your leg on a rock and lean backwards instead of forwards?

    As mentioned, you need a horizon line. If the feet are almost at eyelevel, the base of that tree (?) should be definitely be at eyelevel.

    Proportions are an issue as well.

    Face is too flat. Jawline belongs on a male.

    Head is too small compared to the rest of the body.

    Neck is too long and skinny.

    Left and right arm are not the same length- the elbows wouldn't line up if you put her arms at her sides. And the left arm still looks outstretched when it should be bent.

    You shouldn't be able to see so much of her left shoulder if her body is in a 3/4 turn.

    Left and right leg are not the same length.

    The pose on this drawing is much better than the last, but it still looks jagged and stiff. Hunch the back more and keep the left leg from doing a perfect 90 degree bend. Also stay away from making "mugshot" body parts- that is, most of your body parts only show either it's front view or side view... it ends up looking like Egyptian art.

    Hope this helps.

    I agree with feels anatomy critique. So my words will be about whole pic.
    I think that pic has no dynamic. Everythink in it is normal. There is no feeling about some action. It looks like character design on too large paper.

    Here is my ideas about fitting objects in to pic.

    yeah i know what you mean i am kinda having problems with this pic becasue
    i want to make a non-fighting scene but i want it to look dinamic, so i am still
    looking for a good angle for the image.

    Thanks for the ideas, i like num 2 from your sugesstions, ill see what i can do about the composition later today, and ill do some more anathomy studies,
    i have uped an update on the anathomy i think that the pose looks better now, less stiff more natural, opinions? =)

    thanks a lot for the constant correcting, feels and you to Danilo

    I like first two and forth, but you have to stick on anatomy more. I suggest that you should look at other artist work. Here some sites:


    http://www.artbyfeng.com/
    http://www.gfxartist.com
    http://www.jamesclyne.com/projects_minority.html

    Also study great old artist

    If you can find some art scool where you can draw humans by model (act) that will be good investment.
