The pose is really nice, and so is her expression. Both poses are nice actually. Her dress needs some folds, particularly around the area of her left leg and crotch. Clothes fold and wrinkle, and right now it looks like it's made of cardboard because it's so flat. The shape is good, it just needs some internal wrinkling to look more like cloth.
As for her right hand, I think you need to see fingers in order for the pose to look right. When grasping anything, your hand opens up more than a clenched fist, so your fingers are always shown. Showing a bit of the hilt will help too as it looks like the dagger is behind her hand, not in it. look at this example. that will give you a better idea. Also, maybe take a picture of your hand in that position too. I use photo references all the time.
I hope that helps!
Thanks. Any hints on doing the folds in her dress?
I looked at your latest WIP and I think you've got the idea. IT looks much better now.
Thanks so much for the help
