    First piece in almost a year. Need heavy advice!

    I guess I was going for a perspective type thing, with the leg coming forward toward the viewer as well as exploding/breaking off. I was doodling and randomly decided it was going somewhere and to make it into an actual piece. But it's been quite some time since I've drawn and I know I need heavy work on anatomy and what not, but I'd really like to get my skills going.

    Cute face, but her right nipple is much lower than her left nipple so it looks like her breasts are two different shapes almost (the right one is near the bottom of the breast, and the left one is in the center).


    Also, the perspective isn't working. Maybe someone can do a redline because it's a complicated fix... Are you using any sort of reference for it?

    No reference at all, like I said it just start from a doodle so it kind of unexpectedly turned into something more.

    Oh, and I know the hands are off and they're not really pressing against any surface - or at least the same surface as she'd be "sitting" on. Forgot to mention.

    she seems not to be sitting in any surface at all.. it looks like her weight is being sustained by her hands or something.. kind of as she was breakdancing... the plain of her butt sitting is not the same that her hands.. but you should make some drawings of human bodies to warm up from that innactive year that you reffered..

    If I reworked the hands, could I put in a workable surface? I'm thinking if I made it more so that her hands were placed in front on her, facedown, facing forward. The whole image would still be at a tilt but she'd still be ON something rather than floating. Would that work?

    It's not a bad piece, especially after a year off. If you want to get back into the swing of things, I'd recommend doing a lot more, rather than putting pressure on yourself by trying to refine this one.
