Looks pretty good. Her left arm looks a little ackward in my opinion. It looks like her elbow is behind her which would hurt. It would be nice to see some stronger highlights and darker shadows, to create a more difinitive lightsource. Good job!

This composition confuses me. I love the way the plants are rendered, the girl's body is a little plain, not much pose or personality there, (I don't agree that there is a problem with the arms, they look allright to me) but the plants are just so beautiful- so much sexier than the girl- but I just don't get the scene- it's so placid, but not tranquil... semi menacing- but no reaction... it's like on prozac... just too calm to care much.

first of all, ******* exellent sketch also you coul make the outline of the girl a bit thicker to distinguish between the background and the main focal point i.e the girl

Exad, if you try to do tha same thing with your arm as the girl does, then it won't hurt. At least it didn't hurt when I tried it out >.<
(A good tip: Try to do the same position you're drawing with your own body to check if you can actually bend your arms and legs the way you want to draw it. If you can't do the same thing as you want to draw, then you shouldn't draw it, I think. But that depends on the personal style of the artist. If you're a boy who wants to draw a girl, then I would prefer a reference since the anatomy would be slightly different.)

He could cover that up by a simple adjustment of the hand i think.
