    Hello! I'll see if I can offer some advice.

    I would suggest working on the perspective on her shoulders and hips. Her far (her right) shoulder would be a little more hidden at that angle. I would also suggest rotating her arm. The current position looks uncomfortable because it is rare the elbow is facing that far inwards. Whenever I try to draw things like that, I tend to try and do the pose myself (to a point, and not in public )

    Her legs are also at a bit of an odd angle. Her hips are at about a 3/4 angle, but both of her legs look to be going straight left.

    Overall, great start and I totally agree with you about the blank faces. Its like slenderman is looking back at me.

    I think it is definitely better! The only suggestion I would really have from here is to rotate her right foot to the right, keep it pointing in the same direction the leg is going.

    I think it is looking much better! I would just suggest not drawing the hand so flat and don't forget that the decorations on the tail have to curve with the shape. The one closest to the tip looks a little flat.

    Wow that is some great linework. This is a definite help. I have a bad tendency to draw everything flat and I can definitely see that particular mistake thanks to these lines. Its something I can put on my get better list. To be honest the breast were because a friend said I had to because "boobs" as he put it. X3 I thought it was hilarious so I went with it.

    But anyways, thank you so much for taking the time to do this, its extremely helpful and will be sure to take this with me into future pin-ups as I hope to do more. <3 They are very fun.

    Here is the final version for you guys. I really took the time to do everything I could to bring out the lights and darks, I had some trouble the the head and I still feel its flat but I think with more practice I can do better.

    Again, thank you guys so much. If you want I would love to pick your brains about the shading.

    You're most welcome, I'm glad I was of some help! LOL & "boobs" is a perfect reason to, well, draw boobs~ XDD For lighting and shade, I'm not overly experienced with that so I'll leave that to someone with more knowledge to fully answer. Personally however, I do all mine just by eye and how I think it'd reflect off a object/person, but you'll definitely need a light source (I can't really tell where that is in your finished piece). You can always test by taking a lamp and a shiny thing or something and shine it on it in multiple angles to study.

    Boobs are pretty great lol.

    And I tried to have the light source on the left corner but I guess I didn't pull it off quite right. Shading has always been a problem area for me but this is really one of my best shaded pieces. I'll definitely take your advice though, I've got enough dragon figures and things lying around, might as well make some use out of them as lighting studies. I honestly never thought to do such a thing before so thank you even more. <3
