    Regarding her hand, I think the thumb is on the wrong side. Also, I'd expect the apple to be a little more forward in the palm.

    Her right foot looks okay to me, although the arch isn't matched in her left and we should be seeing that. Maybe shift her right boot back a bit, it seems way more forward than her ankle is on that side.

    Unless the character's part rakasha, her left hand (the one with the apple) is backwards.

    I like the bottom half of the pose (I like the whole standing on back of heels thing), but the top half looks really stiff in comparison. As if you had two separate poses and tried to mix them together.

    I've no clue what to do with her right hand, but find reference that works with what you've got now.

    I like your illustration style in this drawing very much, but as nezumi and psychotime noted you should find references for areas you're unsure of like her hands. I've been trying to teach myself to draw hands in general and found it's gotten easier after doing a lot of hand studies - filling pages of notebook paper with nothing but hands/arms. And I've realized that repetition helps too... quickly drawing the same thing over and over to really drill the shapes into my brain.

    But yes look for refs! I personally like to search on flickr although I'd never directly copy someone else's photos. At least there's a lot to choose from on flickr there and things are named descriptively so the search returns good results.

    here's a few flickr photos that may work for your hands:

    her right hand (search for "hand hip" ... hands usually point with fingers forward on your hip... try to hold your hand with a fist pointing up like it is in your drawing... it feels uncomfortable to me at least.)

    her left hand (the one that's backwards =P)

    her collarbones: (collarbones should be centered on the torso- they should follow the same line as her cleavage/be centered above the middle of her breasts... and there is a space between them. yours are too far to the right and too close together. the tendon in her neck should be more vertical after you move her collarbones over to the left.)

    sorry some of these are flipped the wrong way but you get the idea =)

    looking forward to more updates!

    As already noted, the hand is backwards. I moved it into the correct alignment on the arm. I also feel that the other hand is awkward. I tried putting it into a different position just to explore other possibilities. I don't mind the boots the way they are.
