Not really art, just a thingy I made and forgot to use in the chat room. A little too late to use it now, though.

It feels like she is a living corpse with rigor mortis

Maybe make it be more natural, fluid and less stiff?

This has been said before, but yes. You draw too rigidly. I really like how expertly you get it, but the joints are completely straight, and the muscles completely relaxed, there is no natural slouch or flex to the character. You need to have the proper "movement" of a standing character. You have great potential. You just need to work on the rigidness.

You know, that's literally one of the worst things you could tell to an artist.
Just because he's not a complete expert at drawing humans doesn't mean he should stop. Many people I know have told me to stop drawing years ago just because my drawing weren't good, and I didn't listen to them.
And look where I am now. I'm actually pretty happy with my art, even though it's not the very best.

Simply put, keep at it, and you'll get better in time.

Hey, constachugga, here's a hint: whenever you see a drawing of a human from me, do the exact opposite of what I do.

I mean, look at this monstrosity:

It looks overall fine, the only flaw i see on it is the neck, it is too thin (and tall) for a head like that. (< and i'm talking about the neck, don't get confused).
Apart from that it's a great drawing, heep the good work, man.

The veins on the overly long neck are unsettling, and the arm on the right looks a little too straight.
Also the shoes look a little small, but for the most part you know what you're doing and it looks nice.

along with what they said:
the shoulders are too broad (at least in comparison to the neck)
wide thigh gap (while this technically isn't really an anatomy problem not many people have this and is a bit unsettling imo.)
the hips seem like they start too high but idk it might be a trick of the eye, the torso looks small is what I'm trying to get at
and the facial expression needs a bit of work to be more natural

but while the anatomy is important and does need some work I think its main problem is its a very stiff straight pose.
try to do more next time then just standing straight and facing forward
and the shoulders really kill the pose too they're almost perfectly perpendicular to the spine
Shes not doing anything interesting enough to make me want to look at the drawing for more than a few seconds

overall though there are a few things I really like
the hands look natural and well done and the hair and clothing look nice
keep it up :)

Definitely an improvement, but not quite there yet. I'm not great myself, but I'll try my best to help out.
MM102 already pointed out the things that made it look a bit stiff and lifeless, the majority of which comes down to proportions.
Something you can do to practice that is using references of similar styled or sized characters and paying close attention to their proportions. For example I tend to draw hands too tiny, I find myself looking at my own hands to see the proportions.
Sketching down a skeleton or several helplines could help you keep proportions correctly in different angles. Just make sure to sketch them lightly when on paper, so you can always erase them when you make a mistake or simply don't need them anymore.
When you try to draw a specific position you can try to pose it out yourself (maybe even in front of a mirror) or imagine yourself in it to get a better view on it. Simply googling images works too ofcourse.
Also keeping depth in clothing helps make it feel less flat. Like how you did on her right sleeve and the wristband on her right arm, but not on the left.
But holy shit I like her outfit and hair. I really wonder what colors you had in mind for her.

Anyways, here's my quick take at your character (let me know if you want me to take it down):
Image
My style is pretty damn different though... so I might not really do her justice or pin her character down correctly at all.
Also I didn't bother to draw the hands and a few other small things. (I'm lazy).
Anyways, I'm not perfect either. Her hips are too long, hands are dodgy and her right arm is leaning unnaturally (imo).
But overall, the image looks a bit more natural and less flat due to the angle, a bit more natural pose and keeping in a more consistent depth.
I'm sure if you keep drawing and practicing you'll have a grasp of it in no-time! Especially if you're good at taking criticism and experimenting.

Not sure how many thoughts one could have about potassium, but I'd still like to know.

I drew an inverted owl for an art class project
(reference used on the left, 8x12inch drawing in the middle, and a non-inverted image on the right)

I drew it inverted for a few reasons
1. The less graphite I have to put on the paper the better
2. I wouldn't be distracted with things like lighting and I'd be more focused or making sure thinks were in the right place
3. It looks really cool
4. I look really cool (thanks vic)

Total time: roughly 3h10m over 4 class periods of 50 minutes each
Materials used: B, 4B, and 6B pencils, a hi-polymer eraser, 9x12 paper(trimmed to 8x12), and multisized Tortillion blenders/paper stumps

First off: Holy crap does that look good. I never could hope to draw inverted images. My brain cannot compute. And a very impressive time frame for such a feat.

Secondly: Did you draw all three of them or just one? I draw my references more often than I actually use a legitimate picture.
