    What's there is really nice, but there's just not much to it. Her pose is really stiff. The delicacy of the drawing of her head doesn't carry through to her body or arm. Composition is important, even in a vignette. The shape of her silhouette isn't interesting, and cutting her off like that makes her look stumpy, not graceful.

    I hope you don't mind, here's a quick sketch of the direction I would take this if it were my piece.
