I really love this. The pose is really remarkable, very meditative. I think it could be a bit more dramatic if you played off the angles a little more. The hair is Very curved (which looks awesome!), so if you made the foot and sword more curved to play off of each other, I think this could be really dynamic. But that could just be personal preference, it looks great as is too!

So, I really like this, it's great!
The silhouette really stands out from the background with the contrast you've used, but for the hair.
I'd go for a slightly less bright background under those, because as white as they are, they mix in too much and the piece seems 'flat'.
I'd simply add a light grey layer with low opacity between background and character, that would make the blacks in the character stand out even more, and the same goes for the light blue of the screen.
Anyway, the anathomy is good you know, nothing wrong there: actually, it's well done. Maybe the problem you perceive while watching this is that it feels a bit too "flat"? That's because the arm and the leg in the front view are of the same exact colours and value of the rest of her body, even if that's further away from us and should thus be a bit lighter... without changing that, you could add some blue-ish reflected light from the floor and BG to the spikes on her back, her helbow, shoulder, calf and her foot area.
Reflected light from the screen on her hand would be good, too... shiny materials, like the suit, are really really really reflective: I like what you did here, the look of matte-shining on her leg - I prefer it to the vinyl-suit shine tenfolds -, but if you wanted a shiny-sleek-really-reflective material then you have to heighten the contrast.
[link] <-- examine this and you'll see what I mean (Image found by google images, and yes it's PG rated no worries), becayse I don't think that I'd be able to explain that XD
Also, maybe looking at images of shiny (or matte-shiny) cilinders of metals, or of plastic if that's the look you're searching, might help too.

Also, I'd add a bit of reflected light on her hair, both the upside and downside, to further separe it from the white bg underneath. And maybe some liiiiiittle full white strands on the very topmost rim of her hair, to make it stand out more.
And... mmmh... some more light on the top corner of the screen in her hands would be good too, I think.

All in all, tho, this is awesomely done! These are just some tips that came to mind XD I'm studying those kind of techniques myself, so yeah... I hope I didn't go overboard XD Or I hope you wanted a critique XD
I kind of write a lot, and I'm doing skin-thight shiny suits too lately, so I could go on and on for ages on those.

Well, I hope that I was of help!

Yeah, thats a lot of writing but that's great ;D

I will use your thoughts in my next work, so lets hope to keep the basics in mind in future :D

You know, a good idea for remembering things like these, especially when you still are learning those, it's writing them down: Put them in a post-it note and stick it to the rim of your monitor, or where you can see it well from the computer... check-list like, you know. It helps a lot XD

AHAHA I had actually already browsed that - I receive the ctrl-paint DAgroup devnotes you know XD
But THOSE are digital and unless you use some program, they won't stick up on your desktop you know? XD I'm full of post-its myself XD

Anyway, that ways of doing things is just awesome. Just so you know. XD

ich finde man sieht gut, wie du dich weiter entwickelst vom bloßen abzeichnen. Wird es bald komplett eigenständige Bilder von dir geben?
