This is probably one of the first things I've worked on after some extensive color and lighting studies, so I'm kinda ancy and would greatly appreciate if someone could help address what needs fixing or changing before I march on from here. Proportions and foot position are another concern of mine as well. Oh - in case your wondering what the hell is going on back there in the bg I plan on turning the strokes in the background into a sort of drapery . Anyways, much appreciated for any input as to where to go from here.
I figure I repost the second update in the op for an easier comparison.
