Halloween Town Cierien

First thing I would like to say, please no drastic changes. Like making it entirely your work. But just fix a few things. I think maybe the arms, the thing attahed to the skirt and maybe the legs from what i can tell. But if you see something else go ahead and show me. Anyways here is the picture:

Halloween Town Cierien 
Oh yeah I would also like this done today cause I want to finish this picture completely for Halloween.


I would redline it, but i think i would changed it a lot D: (and i mean a very drastic change). The one i could tell you is try to find a real refference (photo or you posing in front of a mirror).
well first i wanna say this is only my first atempt at this kind of pose. Also I can't find my camera and i don't have a mirror long enough to pose infront of it. But thanks anyways.
i see. You should try to find a similar pose on dA on stocks, it would help you.
i'll see what i can do.
I would also redline this but like edge_chan said, I think I could only offer you the kind of drastic changes you don't want to see.

You'd definitely benefit from visiting stock photo sites or looking at magazines to reference your poses from.
i don't get magazines plus i've never heard at that site. And I don't want to get anything malitious(sp)on my computer. Also why i don't want anything drastic is cause I want it to be my work. The last time I posted something on here someone redlined the entire thing and made it the way he would. I mean it's nice but it wasn't my work.
Maybe looking at some livejournal communities about modeling and fashion spreads would be a good option for you, since it doesn't require subscribing to a magazine or going to any unfamiliar sites. :)

I understand now where you're coming from in wanting it to be your work. Maybe next time you could phrase it a little better in your post? It came across as you asking for advice but not really wanting advice. If you express that you want help but you still want it to be your work I'm think people will be more receptive to helping you.

I swear these changes aren't as huge as they look. The main issue with this piece is that her bottom half looks to small for her top half. I narrowed the shoulders a little, and widened the hips. I also lengthened the legs, and futzed with the draping of the skirt, although frankly that was me not totally understanding what you were doing (the sketch lines are really faint), and can be ignored for the most part. The arm on the right is fine, I just moved it to be in line with the narrower shoulders. The arm on the left was a little long for her body, so that got shortened.

I'm going to reiterate what everyone else is saying: when drawing unfamiliar poses, checking out stock photos is invaluable. deviantart has a really huge stock gallery; you could probably find some helpful reference there.
thanks and I do use deviantart for that, but when i started this I used more like two pictures and I was having trouble finding the one that i used.
