Ooooh. Very nice!
However, there's something about her right shoulder that's not quite... Can one of our maestros please elaborate on this? Is it something with her shoulder or is it just me?
pretty cool, not sure I'm digging the half nose choice though, the shadows don't really follow that in the rest of the drawing.

Her face needs work. There is no emotion in it at all and the eyes look bugged out and wild. Also the eye brows don't look symetrical. The line work is extremely rigid in various parts of the picture too. It doesn't look bad but it definetly needs work.

The one part that really appeals to me is the top-right area of the picture. That part really works and if you cropped the image to just that part I think it would be great. However I think there is a roughly circular area of the picture, below and to the right of the part I like, that is not quite working. You may want to rework that part, it would help the picture tremendously.
I used the print button on my web-browser to print your drawing (my printer must not work right, it kept coming out a different size than how big it looked on the screen; I finally had to call my grandpa to come do it for me). Then I drew over top of your image in a different color so that you could see the corrections you need. But apparently there is no way to get the picture into my computer! I have the paper right here but I canít make it get on the computer like yours! I tried holding the paper against the screen and pressing but it doesnít seem to do anything (does it go in a secret file?). How did you get yours on the computer? My computer is kind of old so it might not do the things yours can.
Anyway let me just try to describe the changes I made to your original. On the hair I made it poofier, more like anime type hair, and I also colored it blonde which I think looks a little better than yours. The head needed to be thinned out near the top and widened near the bottom, it looks much more natural in my version. You accidentally put the feet on the wrong side, so I switched them to their correct positions. But you got the hands correct, so your anatomy is pretty good. There was a major problem around the hips that I corrected by drawing the skeleton underneath to balance the position the body would be in in that stance. I wish I could show you the work I did, it took me hours! Damn computers. I made the boobies smaller because it is disgusting when they are so cartoonishly large boobies. I also fixed the shoulder problem the other person mentioned. As you can see I didnít touch the top-right area of the picture because that looked perfect to me.
I must also say that I found the absence of a background disturbing, it looks like she is just floating in a white void! You should look up this great program called Photoshop, I got it (from a Warez site :carrot: ) and it works really really good. With it you can take the drawing of a person and just paste a photograph of a background behind them! It looks really great but it is also a challenge finding one that suits the character, luckily the internet has every conceivable background you could ever want. You can also use this program to color the character. I usually spend 12-20 hours coloring a drawing, but Iíve got to say the results are worth it. Since my computer wonít let me transfer my drawings into the computer I just use other peopleís artwork I find on the internet. Just be sure to always put your logo/name on the bottom so you get proper credit, some people will just steal your artwork and put it on their site without your permission or giving you credit!
I really wish I could have showed you the overlay I made of your drawing, Iím sure it would help you a lot! I also sometimes print out images I find on the web, and Iíd really like to have digital copies of those too. Do you know what software I would need to get my drawings onto the computer?

Well, there is always the next drawing.
