Original piece by Delight046, corrections by me

So, the artist asked for help with feminine hands and expressions.
Feminine hands, are slender and narrow, compared to male hands. As this is in a manga style, a greater degree of exaggeration than shown above would also be acceptable, and it would get the point across nicely, but this is how I do female hands. For feminine hand positions, generally I think of relaxed hands. So you want hands that are in a slightly curled state. The chalice can be held in her palm, since her current position is more like holding a plate.

The expression needs the eyes aligned towards a single point (they actually should be very slightly "cross-eyed" to look natural), or else it appears she's staring blankly. People smile with their eyes as well as their mouth, so make the bottom boundary of the eyes curve upwards a bit to reinforce the smile, and I'd also suggest exaggerating the curvature of the smile more. And take the eyebrows out of the neutral pose they're in- try variations of angles until you find something that looks natural.

I hope this helped!
