Actually, I love showing people my sketches.

Also, it'd be more nicer if you'd be able to downsize the image.

@Snurple-the-Hedgehog: Fixing Now...

Should be fixed.

@Yamataro: Yeup, it works a lot better for me to see and review now.

Well, the hands would definitely need to be fixed, that also goes for feet, but you were already aware about that. So that's fine.

Although the proportions in the legs would need to be adjusted. While looking at both of them, they definitely look different, but I know one of them is bent up, although there are no details to express that. So keep that in mind.

Most of the detail would be in how it's shaded, but thanks, it was a worry I too held

Right, let's see.
First thing I noticed was the breast. They are much too round to be under a shirt. Usually, when you stretch cloth over two bumps, you get a straight line that indents slightly at the center. You can test this easily with cloth and your finger. Also, something a lot of people don't know is that when girls lay on their backs, their boobs sink into their chest a little. They might also be going outside where her body is too much to give that off though and make them look saggy. I know that wasn't what you were aiming for either.
She also seems kinda chubby? Were you aiming for that? Who whole figure is just very round. This doesn't fit well with the neck though, as it is quiet thin. Her nose is too much in the center of her face, the ridge of it at least. Her eyes are also too close together. I suggest moving her right eye more to the left and her noise slightly in that direction as well. Eyes to eye has the length of an eye in between and one more of both sides for the remaining width of the head. That wouldn't fix this next issue I'm gonna point out though. Her head doesn't look like it is resting on her arm. It just look tilted slightly to the side, not even touching it. You'd need to redraw the face to have less of a 3/4 view and have a not-quiet side view (you'd still be able to see both her eyes). The Shoulder length to the neck isn't the same on both sides and the shoulders need to go behind the neck. The curve on her stomach needs to come down to her hips. Girls have bigger hips than their shoulders and even the pot belly of a man would hang down much lower than that. Her left arm has no clears shape. It's oval but look more like that of a Grunt's arm that a humans. To fix it, shrink it near the wrist more and give it a more cone like shape.
To fix you hands, feet, and other anatomy issues, I suggest practicing from real pictures. Yes, it is anime or a cartoon style, but you must understand what needs to be simplified into what shapes and why they look the way they do before you can attempt work like this. It only helps.

@Salimus: In Order:
Boobs: Yes, I am aware and in the sprite I hoped I had gotten that look right. I will say it's not perfect, but being a sketch that is the point. The issue is I know for a fact I won't be able to fix it in a way I'm happy. Boobs will have to stay for now.

Chub: Yes, she is supposed to be a bit chubby. Big, but Beautiful. If you go back a few pages, you will find the sprite with the other details on there. For the neck I can make it a bit bigger for sure and I can fix her face.

Head, shoulders : Head I will give a bit more of a turn, but according to the refence pic, this seemed about right. Everything else posted I will attempt to fix.

Knees and toes: I have used reference after reference, after Reference and even at one point used my hand to TRACE the hand. EVERY SINGLE TIME I FAIL. Always. I don't know WHAT about hands and feet are so damned hard, but I keep, and keep, and KEEP failing and I'm sort of done with it. I don't draw professionally, I don't have that skill, i draw for the fun of it, so I'm copping out on hands and Feet. Even then, I've seen several artists who do the same. Is it cop out? Yes. Can I fix it? Not that I can see or have attempted. Will I fix it? Probably not.

But thank you Salimus for the C+C.

@Royle McCulloch: Get your head out of the gutter, or stop being a child. One or the other will work, both will put you on the right path.

Seriously. Grow up guys.

This looks fairly close to the sprite, so that is good.

The feet look like they are part of the leg. the leg needs to get smaller down toward the feet them put on the foot. use boxes for when drawing feet.

Also, the space between her legs is too wide for a girl. it is fine if it was a male, but a females don't have that wide spot between their legs.

One user already said what needed to be said about the other stuff so i don't think i need to go in to detail about them.

Here some tips for you practicing gesture drawing will help you it has helped me. im still learning as well but do gesture drawing every day. also use real people look at them draw them DON'T draw cartoon or anime use real people. i say this because anime is base off real people but before you draw anime or cartoon you must understand how the body works.

I know some helpful videos and sites it can really help. feel free to PM me i don't know if posting links here is against the TS.

@Coffee: Another SJ Troll, how original bro. I've dealt with your kind before. Can't hold a candle to Evil so.

@WhiteMageTifa: Thanks for the advice, I think I'm just gonna leave this where it's at. I've lost the inspiration for it.

@Coffee: An opinion is one thing my friend, but that opinion should be backed up with reasons. If you post something like that, you are just baiting a hook and trying to get someone angry. Unfortunately for you, I don't get angry. If you truely feel it's horrible, please, explain to me what wrong with it. I take C+C rather well. But putting something like that, and judging by your profile comment list, you go to areas of SJ just to post how horrible their work is to make yourself feel superior. You are the one that needs growing up my friend.

TL:DR, C+C or GTFO. :3
