I did you a crappy redline here: [link]
It's pretty bad and I'm not exactly the best at drawing, but I think it gets the point across. Her torso is far too long and lacks structure, her breasts are misshapen, and her legs are way too small.

Right now one of the biggest problems I can see with your work is the lack of any solid anatomical knowledge behind them. You need to know real life anatomy before you can draw stylised anatomy, otherwise you've basically got a perfectly-bound book with all the pages missing. The style is there, but the foundation in real life is not. To improve, I would definitely study up on anatomy. Here's some of my favourite resources:
A definitive archive: [link]
Really good for poses and their 30 second drawing thing is really useful: [link]
Awesome for pose practice, remember to credit though...there's loads of stock on DA but hers is especially good: :iconsenshistock:
A fun and motivating read, which actually has some pretty good art advice in it: [link]
All of :iconcedarseed:'s tutorials are awesome, this is a great general guide for the body: [link]
Um, I hope any of that helped. I hope you're gonna draw some more soon, and Merry Christmas :)

Wow, thank you very much for your advice :) I've had a quick skim through all the links, and they look very useful :)
However, I would like to point out that this is anime based art- which tends to focus on the advantageous disproportions of human beings, and somewhat defies, as you say, "real life anatomy"- it is a fantasy realm of how real women aspire to appear, whilst also adhering to the evolutionary characteristics of an attractive woman, and this is what I aim to capture in my pieces- though understandably, I have improvements to make.
Thank you very much for your advice- it is highly appreciated, and I shall take it wisely :)
Merry Christmas to you too! :floating:
