    I'd change the angle of the left side of her chin, the stylization doesn't really work as is and just makes her head look either two dimensional or ultra-manly. You did a good job making the pose more interesting by having the angles of the hips and shoulders opposite of each other, but there's still no real line of action. Her arms are also a problem, there's a ton of potential for charecterization or creating a dynamic pose with her arms (even more important thanks to her kneeling posture) but they're just kind of an afterthought as is.

    I kind of enjoy this sketch, although the head and face features don't really fit. Other than that, from my understanding this is pretty cool

    If you want to put her hand between her legs, I'd follow the ref a lot closer. In the ref the legs are spread more apart and she's putting weight forward, when in your drawing she's squeezing them more together and putting weight backward, making it look like she's squeezing her hand in her crotch rather than leaning on it.

    realy, what I would suggest is to practise anatomy so that you understand how the body actually looks, what the proportions are and roughly where eveything goes etc. I'm by no means an expert, so i practise.

    You have a woman with bigger thighs than upper body. You probably dont like drawing hands and feet because theyre tricky, so you need to make yourself draw those everytime you can.

    If you're trying to copy the ref pose you need to start a new sketch I think, but first make sure you understand how a body fits together a bit better.

    That's really kind like asking how much you should breath to stay alive. You just do as much as it takes. I've filled countless pages with studies. I still suck, but I suck less than I did when I started. That's just kind of the way it seems to work.

    That's a good way to look at it, which I hate just don't always have the time for it. I do what I can, reason I ask is because some pros only do 3 to 8 studies. Then you have to watch out for burning out. I crashed a few times and then just stopped drawing for a few days.

    I really hate when that happens.
