    need some input?!?!

    OK, I am trying to do this sketch for a larger painting here, but have no reference photos. I think the legs are too long. I know that they are in perspective but I'm not sure if they are right. Also which face do you like better? I like the photoshoped one but for some reason it doesn't feel right to me? Sorry for my neurotism. Thanks!!!

    Hmm...very nice I like it a lot... only thing I can personaly see wrong with it is an easy fix; the eyebrow on the (her left) eye is a little off or seems a bit off and the space between it and the eye it self... but I a rather new artist so hell if I know anything lol You might want to wait and see what the pros say. They have better judgment than me.

    as far as the face goes, her right (our left) eye is melting off of her face to our left. yes, the legs are too long/large, and they are unproportional in the femur/tibia relation. her right breast also looks a little high.

    the perspective on the castles looks all woogly.

    I really wouldn't hurt to get some reference, even if it is just yourself in a mirror.

    Thanks guys, you are catching some good things here. My plan was to make the castles a little wonky. However I think it looks more like a drawing problem than an intentional decision. I am defintely going to shoot some reference for this, I'm not that crazy. Anyone else have some input?

    this looks great so far!

    i dont think the legs are too long at all.
    in fact, given the perspective you could play with making them even longer.
    its the feet that bother me.
    her right foot (the closer one) looks like a left foot.
    also, try to add tension to the pose., especially the joints.
    tuck things in, or really turn them outwatrds, curl the toes...etc.

    heres a quick paintover.
    things to consider:

    move the figure up to excentuate the force of the lower leg,
    the bend in her arm... should it be coming toward us instead?
    bend the wrist more.
    DONT FORGET SPACE FOR BLEED!
    those toes are going to get cropped.
