Hello all! I recently finished off a commission of Zarya, the musclebound weightlifter-cum-hero from Overwatch.
While I'm pretty happy with how it turned out, I figured it might be a good idea to toss it at you guys to see if there's anything I could work on to make it better!

Some thoughts about anatomy and pose.
Legs could use some fixing in my edit, but you get the idea.

Solid ideas, but the commissioner was pretty specific about the pose haha, not much I could do there.
Could you put into words where I scrooged the anatomy? I still struggle with that somewhat right now so I'd appreciate a breakdown.

Its pretty solid, but I think the outlines have some issues. The outline on the lower half and head is waaaay lighter than the outlines on the arms and some of the chest. Also I'm not really sure what's going on with the hand that's partially behind her back.
ayyyy lmao

Noted! I was actually planning on eliminating those but I couldn't get the colors to work without them there to provide the contrast I needed on plain white backgrounds.
Also, she's throwing the horns there. If it's unclear it might be something to work on, yeah.

Some thoughts for you.

Sure, general proportion sizes are good, head, neck(zarya has a thick neck) and the raised forearm could be a bit bigger. The greatest issue is the lack of shoulders take a look at how both PPD and I pronounced her shoulders more.

The pose is an issue as well, i took the liberty of acting it out in my underwear and confirmed that it is a very unnatural and off balance position to be in. But I understand if your hands are tied
