Thanks so much, Cora!!
I tried to fix the hand on the right, but kind of failed :/
Oooooo I love this! The dress is adorable and I love how you did her face (especially the eyes)! Are you going to finish it? I think the hand closest to us is pretty good (maybe a tiny bit small like you said but not tooo small). The one farther away from us needs some work, but i'm guessing you know that already. Keep it up!
The figure's right han looks great, but her left hand is a bit shaky. I love the pose; it's very expressive. I would take a second look at her left thigh, which looks a wee bit thin and like it doesn't connect to her torso. Try drawing her body under the dress to remedy that. As for the coloring, you have a nice, soft style, but it is very low-contrast. Try adding some cool colors to the skin shadows to make it pop and bring it to life. Also consider a warmer highlight on the dress (instead of that electric blue) to get the same effect.
I really really like second to last, it's adorable and has a really nice style to it.
I'll give you a good suggestion to get better lineart: before actually drawing, do a few pages of 30-20 second gesture drawings to loosen up your hand.
Use things like lovecastle.com or other such tools.

The reference was clothed, so I couldn't figure the torso out that well. The shoulder on the right is pretty funky and I still suck and hands and feet OTL
Here's the reference picture:
Hey Jjjorgie! Good to see you trying to push yourself with the poses. In times like these, it may be a good idea to do a quick red line stick figure over top of the photo ref just to get a clearer idea of what body part is going where. There were a couple areas where your drawing wanders from the reference pose. The main area that I noticed was the head and shoulder position. The reference is really hunched over, so much so that you may not even even be able to see his abdomen. His left (our right) shoulder is lower than the one you drew and the head is also set lower. I've provided a quick red line to help you see what I mean.
Hope this helps. Keep up the good work.
