    Almost none of that is anatomically possible, comfortable, or practical for a combat stance.
    The back leg is twisted at the ankle.
    The head isn't attached to the body.
    The arm over head would need a long humerus or two elbows to bend like that.
    The front arm is possible but wouldn't allow for much motion when paired with the other.
    Which reference did you use?

    Okay, that helps clarify, flexible wrists.
    The black bit next to the overhead left hand is the cuff of the sleeve pointing upward, not his elbow (which would be closer to his chin height); and his right arm is only slightly bent.
    That's a colored floor shadow not his back leg's foot.
    Notice how the ref's head is in a 3/4 view, where as your mouse character's is almost looking directly forward.
    Try redlining the photo.
