Practicing with hard-edged-rectangular-shaped brush in Photoshop. What I like most about this marker-like brush is the way you can color and define form at the same time. I didn't use any photo references, but maybe I should have. There are some anatomical issues and some areas lack muscle definition. Perhaps next time I'll use some refs.
Glad to hear what you think.
I think it looks very nice!
I definitely can't see any disturbing anatomical issues, but maybe that's just me.
A few things, though.
It seems like you've concentrated too much on the buttocks (easy mistake! ), compared to the face and hair...
I think the hair needs more contrast or something, as it is now it looks a little flat.
Ehh, yeah that's all.. Nice piece!
I think the area between her shoulders and her breasts has been extended a bit long. I think the problem is the shoulder's don't look attached to the ribcage.
If I'm wrong, sorry, but it looks off to me.
Great job otherwise.
ya, looks like she doesnt wear bras very often...
This is very nicely rendered.
I wouldn't point out any glaring "anatomy" issues, but there are a few figure drawing problems. Her head is too small (maybe her neck too). Also the front of her neck (esophagus area) should be more convex and less concave, when bent back so extremely. Also, with her back elbow (her left elbow) so much higher than her right, something else should be going on with her left shoulder OR if the idea is that her right upper arm is projecting toward the viewer, it should look like it's doing this. Both upper arms look as if they're essentially parallel to the picture plane, so how can the left one be so much higher?
Overall it looks good. But while I'm looking at it I can only say that the area between her shoulders and breasts are a bit extended (that's about it). Keep it up!

I really think you should use more references and practice sketching your figures out. it doesnt look bad although it doesn't look that right either.
better part i would say are the hands although the forearms seem alittle long
Everyone's pretty much pointed out everything. But I'll just say that the breasts on this woman "pop out" too low. Breasts "pop out" higher and if they get big enough they'll start to gravitate south (or sag). So I guess to fix up the breasts on this pic is to "pop" them out higher and let them sag a little (sagging breasts sounds horrible doesn't it? But it isn't really and it happens even to young women and is quite the natural ).

photo reference, photo reference, photo reference.
it's what's gonna save you in the end. the good thing is you picked a definite light source. the bad thing is you didn't follow through w/ the entire figure. sure, it may be hard/ impossible to get a nude model...but honestly anything woulda helped you w/ sense of proportions and lighting. the painting itself is not poor. it's your understanding of anatomy.
imho, you could also spice this up a lot by cropping it closer and revealing more negative shapes w/ her body and the image plane. also just cooling off the background a tad would really make her pop more and help us w/ a sense of depth.
don't get discouraged, a solid understanding of anatomy is the hardest and most fundamental skill an artist must aquire. keep working at it!
