Can I ask what she's doing? Ha, I think I have something to say, but I want to make sure it's applicable first. :]Hahaha! IGNORE THE HANDS! DX I just noticed, it does look wrong haha.
But it's a nurse from silent hill. :3
I thought it was something like that. :)
Anyway, I think the problem is she's off balance. It can be fixed as easily as moving right leg out, but I drew this up real fast to try and explain why. It's a simple little trick I use that you might be able to apply to your stuff too.
Over your drawing, I traced the line of action. I'm not 100% sure how to describe this line because it has a few different uses in the building of a character, but mainly it's the flow of the spine.
In your drawing, it looks like she's sort of falling over, and that's because her line of action is top heavy. It arcs at the top but not at the bottom. Just by carrying the arc all the way to the bottom, the line itself is balanced, and it's easier to see what needs to be adjusted in your drawing and how to do it.
And I'm just bringing this next part up because I think it accentuates that broken doll sort of look, I think it'd be cool if you tilted her head so that she's looking straight at you. That'll give her face more focus, which I think makes it all the more creepy.
Hope that helps!
