    overal good work, i like detailed drawings, but here are some suggestions.
    My personal opinion!:
    1. the neck is too long
    2. the head is small
    3. the thighs are too wide

    i think you need of some proportion fix

    but away of that it look cool,good details and tones !

    I am personally intrigued by the proportions and look forward to seeing the completed version.

    Though I might explore different compositions for the final.

    Shoulders are a little wonkey. Also, for being an amazon warrior, her muscles could be a bit more defined.

    I really like what you did with the collar.

    I disagree...amazon's have thick thighs and long necks. maybe just a bit too long or am I seeing a revised picture? Maybe you could just add those like neck stretching rings that are sometimes seen on african tribal women.

    JMorris: This is an updated version where the legs are a little tweaked.
    Before they were slightly more chunky

    I like the detailed work in her outfit. Her right eye seems much smaller than her left, though. Can't wait to see where you take this.

    Overall, I like it. Quite a bit. But somethings stand out to me which are...

    1. the right hand almost looks like a claw, gripping the...

    2. Spear? or staff? Can't tell cause both ends are cropped off

    3. Placement of both hands/arms and staff/spear and shield. Staff bothers me I think cause it's a straight on angle, if it had a little perspective I think it wouldn't feel flat.

    4.Left leg could maybe be developed a little more, to me it feels a little flat also. Where the staff crosses the left leg feels really flat.

    5. Her exppression, what's her story here?

    Im not too worried about what is portrayed in the image, but it seems like youre trying to be painterly but still keep the strong angles. I feel that you might need to find a safe ground where the viewer is aware of your choice in style. Some of the elements are inconsistent with the rest of the work as far as cleanliness and style.

    Aside from that, you seem to want to work on some part more than others. Maybe even eliminating those elements might help? Things like the staff are under worked in comparison to the fur of her boots or the jewelry on her neck. Maybe you should be more specific about your staff? let us know what kind of wood it is, dark wood, light wood, cracked or varnished, blood stained?

    So, some of the lighting seems inconsistent so I did a quick paintover to demo out some stronger lighting. Also, your torso and hips are on the same planes, too parallel, so I showed with boxes the difference between stiff torso and active torso.

    I have the feeling that the pose of the body is too, uhm, "unnatural", it seems kind of forced, without flexibility. Especially the face that's fixed in a way that doesn't go along with the pose of the body.

    Reality is just lack of imagination.
