what can I say what can I say?
First I must complement you on the clean up its very nice. The right arm lacks the three point connection (sorry I forgot the actual term for it, I've been busy studying the work of professionals, so I have forgotten a lot of terms actual names.) Basicaly what I am saying it is lacking the over, under and around feel to it compared to the rest of the body. When drawing every part of the body, I would suggest using the major and minor axis lines to help hold the feeling of depth and volume. Even though it is a anime drawing, the hairline or what their is of it is far too close to the eyes from my perception of the face. From the stomach, the abdomen, and the pelvis area there is a loss of information. meaning you need to clarify and define these parts of the body even more because the left leg and the pelvis area has no definition to it and can only really be seen as a leg and pelvis by someone seeing what they know and think is there, and not by what is actually there. Due to lose of information, the connection between the stomach and chest is being communicated as stretched and not a natural feel or pasture. Though measurement of ear, eye, and mouth, the top of the ear should end somewhere just arounf the top of the eyelid, and the bottom around the top of the mouth. Finally don't just stop at the hand, keep going man/woman.

The lineart looks very clean. Just the way I like it.

One thing that's really off is the belly button. It shouldn't be that close to the crotch at that angle. Generally speaking, the navel should a lil bit below three head's length. I'm sure you've seen something like this before. Of course thing's can vary depending on the person but yeah, hopefully I helped ^^

@Blackmage: Thanks for the critique, ya the arm did look pretty flat and the anatomys a bit messed up but i tried fixin it up a bit.
@TribalPunk: Thanks for the comment, i know the proportions were seriously off below the upper part of the body and the heads a bit big xD, and thanks for the thing about the belly button hope i fixed that.

Eh not happy with it oh well lol, i pretty much gave up of the perspective, it doesn't look right at all >_>.

Hmm, the way you've put her hand in is rather different from what I was expecting. Did you have a reference photo for the pose?

It seems like all I do these days is bang on about line-weight, but if you're going for a perspective effect, you might try using heavier lines on the part that's nearest you and lighter lines as you get further away. At the moment, the lines around her head and upper body are darkest, so you kind of lose the impression of her hand being close to you. Basically, if you go from thick to thin, it'll help reinforce the illusion of depth.

Yea the hand does not connect correctly to the arm. How I measure my hands is simple from the base of my palm to connection point of the middle finger is the same distance from the bottom of the chin to the top of the nose for the average adult. The distance is also the same from the bottom of the middle to the top of the middle finger maybe little shorter.

It's not bad, but the hips are turned wrong, and you need to make the hand bigger. Using line width will help, of course, but also make the body a bit smaller. :)

I am wondering are you drawing this out of your head, or using any type of reference? In all your drawing you seem to be stretching the body quite a bit.

Yea, get references, find photos of people in different poses you would like to draw, and use those references to recreate those poses. The will also help vyou with your anatomy a bit.

The top part of the guy's body seems fine, but he gets very narrow as you go downward - if he was standing face forwards, his stomach in particular would be really small. As Blackmage said, trying to find references for the pose you want to draw would probably be a big help. There's no shame in not being able to draw a perfectly proportioned person from memory alone.

If you don't like looking at actual photos, try posemaniacs - some of the poses are a bit weird, but it's a useful site.
