So... this is a traditional drawing I worked on tonight... and I plan to transfer it onto
illustration board tomorrow night so that I can paint it.  However, I'm a bit concerned
about the anatomy of the elf girl.  Does it look funny to anyone? Any odd angles?  And if
so what could improve it? 

After having looked at it for a while I'm thinking it's the skin shading that's making it
appear wrong, particularly in the chest/shoulder area, but I'm not sure how to fix it to
look right.  ^^;

Holy shit, this is beautiful.
first off just let me say that you're greatjdhasfkjfd <33

Her body does seem a bit off, and personally I can't tell if we're seeing
her back or her front.
If it's her back that's facing us, then her head is bending way too much.
And her chin is completely like over her shoulder, which should not be possible.

Also her left shoulder is nonexsistant, and it looks like her arm is connected to her

Okay I'm sorry if that sounded mean at all! My critiques usually come out pretty harsh D8
But this is great, and I'd be happy to do a redline for you!

Thank you! 
No, your critique wasn't harsh at all.  Just what I wanted.  ^^

Anyways, it's supposed to be the front not the back.  So, clearly I need to make more of a
distinction between front and back in it. Hm... 
I know the main way to make the distinction clear for females in a drawing is showing the
-ahem- breast lines and so forth, but she was intended to be "flat" chested.

Thank you for pointing out the arm attached to the neck view.  I really need to figure out
how to fix that!  It looks so funny now that I see it that way!  ><

If you'd redline it that'd be awsome!

Oh okay! Well you're welcome :3

OHHHHH actually now I see it, I think it was just the left arm that threw me off.
Drawing boobs and stuff isn't the only way to make a clear distinction though, haha
collar bones are great too! And other neck lines, ect.

Anyways, I personally posed in front of my webcam and tried to get the same pose
as her. hahhah 
So hopefully my redline looks correct!

You could also change the arms if you want, but I think the main problem you had
was with the shoulder propertions and stuff~
