    I think as far as length goes the arms really aren't that far off base. However they are very thick and chunky in proportion to her slim waist. They almost make her look child-like. Also, if you really want to emphasize her svelte-ness you could make her legs longer, I believe they're a little on the short side right now.

    thanks

    I will work on that then..i was concerned that the hands were just off but it could be just the arms and the shortness of the legs that is throwing me off..

    I think you maybe need to make the silhouette more readable, so get rid of that clumped left arm. Maybe tilt it a little.

    And add a bit more contrast with red to the specular edges of the gold, makes it more warm and gold-ish.

    And IMHO, get rid of that gradient spawn from hell in the left bottom.

    I would desaturate it a little. I understand you want her coming out of the sun and hot with highlights, but she looks TOO much like computer art. Other than that pretty good.

    when you say contrast do you mean to the highlights on her skin or on the gold? and could you give me an example has to how i should paint the sun?

    I like the texture on her (my left) leg - in the background.. perhaps bringing this on to the leg in the foreground will give more of an effect of her coming from the sun? It just seems sort of flat right now.

    I like the colors, specially the jewelry design.
