Hi, I've been working on this practice piece but I'm having issues with the legs. Any advice on how to fix them as well as a general critique of the work are welcome. Thanks

I think the left thigh is too long and the left shin too short, it looks slightly unbalanced. As the thigh to the right is foreshortened, I would make it rounder and place the kneecap higher to extend the right shin, but as she already has a great deal of muscle mass, looking up anatomy references from different angles will serve you well! The same goes for the upper arm to the right, I just did this same mistake and it's definitely a doozy :lol: Nothing like good ol' anatomy studyin'! The hands look very good to me!
