(WIP) Female Peasant
This is a concept for a peasant. I am working on the values, and they look wrong to me, but I do not know why... so besides anatomy corrections, what can I do to make it look more realistic?.

Hmmm.... correcting the values, details I think but you're not to that stage yet.
I'm the guy that does his job! You must be the other guy!

I studied a lot of other peoples paintings that looked right and compared the values with my painting, and I realized 2 things:
1) Not all of them use the whole value scale. Some use from 80% to 50% (very light subject), some other use from 30% to 5% (very dark subject), and still it looks awesome.
2) Each area of light is very well separated, you can tell clearly which parts are in light and which parts are in shadow.
In my painting I used too much half light and so the values in the light are very close to the values in the shadow, so it looks very muddy. So i tried to separate the values a little bit more.

I like the original better. On her face the bridge of her nose is too wide and her mouth has no lips. I would make the nose more narrow and define the mouth/lips more. The hand on her hip is too wide. And her balance is off. Since she is standing on the right foot (her left) then her hip would be extended and her leg straighter. And if she had one knee bent then her foot could not possibly be flat on the floor.
Hope this helps!

Thanks for the tips razorhead.
You can bend the knee and have the foot straight on the floor, try it. You just have to rotate your pelvis a bit and put all your weight on the other foot.
