this is strangely one of my favorite pictures you've done in your gallery... I don't know, I love it unfinished. I don't think the torso is 'too twisted' either,..sometimes we have to ignore the laws of gravity and the body to get what we want to achieve >_> so its damn good in my eyes.
Nice dynamic pose, but there can be a lot more done with it. I'd feel the emotion a lot more if the gesture was made towards the viewer as opposed to being off to the side like it is.
Where's the other arm? Not sure if this is an incredible coincidental pose in which the other arm happens to be covered by the body, but not sure if it works that way..
Torso looks way too twisted in that direction for the character to be making that kind of gesture. It's not physically convincing.. Hips facing one way, ribs facing another way, arms another way, and head along the arms. It just doesn't look very easy, let alone comfortable.
I like the idea, but I don't think this is as successful as it can be. I don't think a background would help it..
But the coloring job is nice as usual. ^^
