    "Worldmind" digital painting

    Hey guys, I've only got a really basic sketch of this worked up so far, as well as a couple of the key elements (the 'stars' and the wings).
    I'd like to get opinions on anything I missed/screwed up before I get too much farther.

    About the picture:
    This is going to be a wall poster (30"wX40"h)
    The idea is that she'll be holding Earth in her lap (the circle). She's an AI created to essentially be the 'mind' of Earth. The eight lights around her will symbolize the eight "Inner Worlds" colonies (this is obviously a sci-fi/fantasy pic)
    I'm thinking when I get around to doing the hair, I'll try and drape it down over her breasts Lady Godiva style, for decency.
    She has pretty wide hips while standing, so I don't know if that would alter the sitting pose much or not.
    Earth will be the primary light source of the picture, with her wings as a secondary and the Inner Worlds as tertiaries.

    Any comments/critiques are appreciated, thanks.

    That looks pretty good, but you'd do well to FIND SOME PHOTO REFERENCE. I can say with near-certainty that if you Google "nude woman lotus pose" you're going to find some images that will help you tremendously in refining the figure. Until you do that, you're just guessing and the result is going to look amateurish.

    Believe it or not, this is working from a reference photo. Unfortunately, the photo only shows from about mid-shoulder down. So as Marlo has pointed out to me the head is a bit too large. I am looking to fix that now.

    You need to find some better reference. The model in the one you linked to has clothes on, for God's sake.

    Well, it was impossible to find nude reference for a woman sitting like that AND holding a sphere/ball/whatever. Though now that I've got an idea of what the pose for holding the ball is like, nude reference would be a good place to go next, eh?
    Thanks for the tip.

    Your proportions don't even follow your reference, her legs short be shorter.
    An additional nude reference still could help. There are various anatomy issues, for example, the deltoids end way too high and that line is unnecessary at the bottom of it...

    Something tells me that by fixing the legs (with other photo reference now. Gawd, so much porn) I've just borked something else. Probably doesn't help that I effectively redid the sketch from scratch except the head.



    The arms are probably screwed up now, eh?

    ------------------

    EDIT:
    Showed it to one of my other artist friends and made some tweaks based on her initial suggestions:
