    Hello

    first off get your subject on the paper, unless you have a reason for cutting off the weapon have your character stand far enough in so you can see the whole barrel. Your legs need not show depending on the image idea, but currently it looks more like you simply hid the legs because you did not know how to draw them in, or started your drawing to low on the page and ran out of room.
    Same holds true for the right arm, where's the lower arm and hand. If you were uncertain how to draw it bent and holding a weapon, grab a broom and stand if front of a mirror and hold it as your character is holding the rifle to get a inkling of how to draw the hand in.
    Take some tome to work on shadowing to add depth to your character. A weapon being held should cast some shadow on ti the character, use this to help add shape and depth. Example the rifle butt by the arm can cast a rounded shadow across the arm, showing the arm is cylinder in shape.
    Do the same for the mask covering up the lower face, where it arches over the nose some shadowing should be seen caused by the nose itself.
    If this is a woman add some hip definition, no waist and no hips usually indicate and adolesent.

    Hope that helps some

    Mr. D

    hey kennybran!

    I think her head and neck look a little large. Also I am unsure of where her right arm is going, I'm assuming she is holding onto the part just before the barrel which looks extremely awkward right now. The anatomy of the upper body looks a bit strange and I think its because of the gun. It kind of looks like you tried to draw around the gun so some parts like her should kind of look dislocated and is making her upper body look flat. You should plan out her upper body before drawing the gun.

    Hope this helps!

    Adding to what has already been said. The pose is simple enough that you could get someone to pose for you with the proper lighting, this will give you the basis for the drawing. I would start there work on it some and then ask for more feedback.

    That seems like an awkward way to hold a gun. Her left wrist seems bent way too far and her right arm doesn't match the angle of the weapon.

    Spend time working out the proportions, perhaps draw a faint wireframe mannakin to figure out the perspective etc, doing the wireframe or contour line mannakin starts suggesting planes and makes it much easier for ze brains brains brains!!! to, see the shading and tones.
