this is to be an african american women coming out of the sun..her armor will be bronze gold..before i take the trouble to do more painting...can anyone please help me with the propertions? i think something is wrong with the hands...the sketch is on a seperate layer so it is a little rough since i will use that to as a guide.
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.
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 will post this is critiques too but i think the changes i made helped alot thank you so much for the suggestions
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 need to get drawing more
Help to stimulate me in doing so at my sketchbook!
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.

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.
