    I've been trying out a new colouring style in photoshop, It's a little challenging, but I Know it'll be worth it in the end!

    hmm right now there are some anatomy issues, particularly with her right arm. I just don;t think that sort of position is possible. There are also issues with her hips, legs and butt, it's like they're drawn from all different angles rolled into one, or something oO. Did you use a ref for the pose?

    Edit: I also forgot to add i'm not quite sure what the concept behind the piece is aside from what Sone_one has pointed out, a nekkid lady.

    I had a strange feeling about the anatomy, but I've never drawn a model from this angle; learning experience! I may either have to hide the arm or just position it differently altogether. There was no reference used, I just tried to refine an old sketch of mine. I'm glad I'm nowhere near done now seeing as there are so many issues with the body. Any suggestions?

    As for the title, it has to do with this character, alongside a story I was working on when I was younger; about 14 or so.

    My only suggestion really would be to get a reference, or pose it yourself. Even if you are a guy it should still give you an idea as to how the arm and the hip should really be placed. I wish I could give you advice on how to tweak it but I'm no where near knowledgeable enough.

    Thanks, I'll be sure to update with a properly referenced pose later.

    t&a

    the T&A shot is a hard one to pull off and requires alot of spinal curve and I think she would need her arm in front of her for balance anyways here are my thoughts do with them what you will.....

    Thanks so much! Yeah... I figured that the arm would make it hard to balance in real life. I'll be sure to re-work the pose soon. It makes much more anatomical sense now.
