I think I've been fumbling with this arm for an' hour on and off so far and I can't seem to get it right (the one outlined in red).

If you notice anything else actually that seems off or wonky, please tell me! xD I'm always looking to improve and any suggestions are more than welcome (this character is from a MMO game, their whole stature is unproportional incase anyone's wondering why her head is so big). <3

Edit: Ops, didn't think it'd shrink so much. Here's link if you want to view it bigger: -Click me- (http://i115.photobucket.com/albums/n283/FMA1346/MaplePSChar1_zps44981ed8.png~original)

Is the problem perhaps that you have made her left arm have a baggy sleeve and the right one a much tighter?
If this was mine I might do something like this

Made the elbow a slight bit bigger but shrink the sleeve and the wrist area.

I might also lower the eyebrows but thats just me
i really like the way you did the hands though.

I would suggest that the perspective issue is stemming from the positioning of the torso and the staff. Turn the torso and shoulders slightly so that her right side (on our left) is leaning towards the viewer, bringing the head of the staff towards the viewer, while the rear of the staff is receding into the page. To have the staff at a flat position like that is not naturally comfortable for that pose and will flatten out the image itself.

Thank you both for replying and giving me feedback. I really appreciate it!

Ah! I can't believe I missed that, it looks much better like that. What I may also do is make the other sleeve a tad bigger to match more. :giggle:

That makes sense. Though the positioning I was going for was having the head of the staff closer to her body, almost leaning against her shoulder.

Her body is sorta shifted to the right and her left arm (going by her view) is stretched out a bit. However, I may end up changing it to what you said if I cannot get around it and if it continues not to look natural.

Maybe you should change the size of the staff so its larger at the bottom making it looked more pushed out. and angle the bottom to face us, as it looks like its going the way tiamat had explained, to me it does anyways.
