    That arm is way off.

    Check your underlying structure out again.

    Yeah, there's definitely something WAAAY wrong with her arm. Also, something else... I can't be sure, but her head looks a liiiitle small for the rest of her body. Might be the angle.

    seriously loving the linework... really clean, very nice, I wish i could get confident lines like that with my tablet!

    i think with the arm... there's two things bothering me, one... it feels short , but more than anything... the elbow bends exactly at the edge of the torso, so you lose that feature completely. If you erase the neck line.. it actually looks like the whole upper arm area is her chest, and she's wearing one of those basque style tops... i think it should "sprout" (can't find a better word) further to the left?

    also... it feels like you should be able to see some of her other arm behind her back, if her left arm was moved to the left, you'd be able to see her right shoulder, and to my eye, should see at least a bit of elbow.

    I tried to draw down what i mean.... had to do it in paint unfortunately, but you'll get my point. I don't mean it's a fix, just to put what i'm thinking into words.

    Wow, thanks guys. I really see what you mean about that arm, I guess I just got so used to it, I couldn't notice. Even when I flipped the canvas. I will fix it up and make the head bigger! Thanks.

    I don't think I really understand.. I tried but it still doesn't look right. I set down a skeleton too, but maybe the foreshortening is fucking with me. Help please!

    Hmm, I'm a pretty novice artist, but the only issue I see is how disconnected her head seems to the rest of her body.

    No matter how good of an artist you are, anyone can look at a drawing and say if it looks natural or not. Thanks man, I tried fixing the neck up, does it look better?

    There's one thing people do with breast that annoys me and it's making the curve convex when it's suppose to be a concave curve.

    Convexed boobies = NO!

    Your's are kindda okay though. I think the drawing is pretty good, but I feel she should be making sandwiches or something. I think it's her skirt, reminds me of one of those housewife skirts.

    On the topic of boobs, the one under her lifted arm looks like a balloon that she is reaching over. That curve you have to define the lower portion of her breast is extending too far towards her armpit me thinks, it almost looks like the breast is emerging from the armpit.

    The arm doesn't really look too off, imo. It appears as though the elbow would fall in the right place on her side, but it still looks strange. It may be that the legs are a bit long, but she is about 8 heads high. That alone throws it off a bit, because those are usually more comic book sized people unless I'm mistaken.

    Hit this up with some tone, and make sure you define the overlapping areas of the muscle on the arm, and the ball of the elbow and I think you should be alright.


    Why did the last post get so dark? its hard to see the lines... maybe its my moniter i do not know

    Those boobs look too wide. Make them perkier and rounder. Mushy wide boobs are gross.

    The shoulder is too high. I also shifted her breast a bit.

    I think part of the problem you're having with the neck is that the shadow is much more intense there, it makes it look thinner than you meant it to be. The rest of the body looks okay to me (except for the issue with the arm) but the head looks a little like it was drawn as an afterthought.

    The shirt she's wearing (unless you meant it to be skintight rubber) should drape down from her breasts, not tuck under it...shirts that do that on ME quickly become donations to my local Salvation Army ;)
