    Anatomical advice needed

    Hi.

    This is the first groundwork for something I'd like to finish within a week (at the most).
    Any correction, feedback or advice will be highly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi!
    Is this from EVA? It is coming along nicely but if you don't mind, I did a redline to suggest how I might have stylized the anatomy.
    I tried my best to keep within the proportions you have drawn but the main thing that
    bothered me was how thin all the limbs were - even after taking the style into consideration.

    In addition, the symmetry of the body was off in some places so I have tried to even it out.
    I moved the pelvis and crotch area up to make sure her legs started on the same level.
    I also shortened and thickened the neck a little because it seemed way too long and thin.
    Even after this, I still feel that I would shorten the distance between the waist and the hips.

    Lastly I made the hands a little bigger and filled out the arms and legs slightly.
    Since it seems that you are approaching this with realistic shading, making sure the stylization
    is sound before you proceed is of utmost importance. (Traditional cell shading is more forgiving,
    too a certain degree.)
    Realistic rendering will only emphasize areas where the anatomy isn't convincing.

    I know this is pencil and it is difficult to fix, but those are some of my thoughts. Feel free to use
    them if you find anything helpful.

    It is Asuka, yeah, and your corrections were of great help, man.
    Will work over your redline on the next re-do. Thank you!

    I think the torso and the waist area are pretty okay, but the neck, the arms and the legs are way too thin. And her left arm seems off.

    You gotta forgive me on this, but I just cannot stand drawing Asuka without skinny legs. However, the small changes in proportions and symmetry did make a fair difference; you can see them in the comparative file: green shade is the previous drawing, violet the current one, plus EZpaint's redline.

    I shall move onto other elements of the composition, for now.

    Thanks again.

    I would suggest taking another look at EZpaints redline and really think it through. What things where changed and why. You drew some of the mistakes that were corrected exactly the same in your new version. (And I don't mean the skinny legs.) Pay special attention to the torso and the angle of her breasts.

    The new neck looks much better but it still seem far to thin for that giant head.
