your forearm is too short, and your bicep look saggy, instead of relaxed. :D
lol talk about vague CC. I always have this problem with drawings, so I just make the angle more extreme and have the arm out more. :)

The head looks a bit small, and it's not "attached" to the neck, if that makes any sense--if you want to have her looking straight ahead, the head needs to be moved a few pixels to the left, and if you want a 3/4 view the shape should be different.

The other major issue is the arm; the two halves of it should be about the same length, and the whole thing needs to be longer. She also needs a defined wrist, but you can add that pretty easily with shading. (I think there's also something off about how it attaches to the body, but my anatomy's not good enough to say what it is.)

It looks to me like there's something odd about the breasts as well, but that's something that shading could easily fix.

Here is a BEAUTIFUL demonstration of what I mean, kind of (excuse its BEAUTY, I'm using a touchpad) if you're a more visual learner:

The shoulder is drawn too far back; you need to move the pixels more to the right. It's also very stiff, and the other shoulder seems to fall off too short in comparison. The breasts, as well, seem too far forward.

I can redline when I'm NOT IN CLASS. XD

Since Penty covered the arm... needs moar curves! Breasts are too far forward and she has almost no back and no hips.

Sorry the lines are so messy, I'm on campus and am being forced to use a mouse. D:
Hope this helps. :3

I've done some redlines, sorry they're scribbly, they're just an idea.
Image
The outside of her arm from her shoulder down needed to be a bit straighter, the bump in it confused me. Also, the shape of the inside was a bit saggy on the fore and back arm, so I've shown how you could fix them a bit. And I don't know if it's more of a stylistic thing, but she seems to have an awfully skinny face, so if you plumped up her cheeks a bit, she'd look healthier, it'd sit better with the appearance of the torso.

I edited the face so she doesn't look so creepy anymore. The head should be longer and the jawline a bit lower. Also EARS. Give the poor girl some.
The neck didn't seem to support the head before. Remember - it's connected to the neck and has to hold up the weight of your brain and skull :).
The hand is pretty self-explanatory. It should be thicker and the forearm is not the thickest in the middle but towards the elbow. The hand was a bit short, too.

There might be mistakes in my redlines (I personally see a few already), but I hope this helps. Good luck :)

I tried to do some scribbles but I failed.

For 1. you could try extending the highlight from shoulder to shoulder. Might also make the chest look less bare. Alternatively, end it as a ball at the shoulder.

I also had a go at the fingers. Right now, the fingers seem to be about uniform in size so showing subtle size difference would be good. The thumb looks a little blocky - make it more pointy (...as well as you can with small pixel art anyway...).
It looks a little like the middle finger is on top of the ring finger so some pixel pushing in that area would be handy.
Also, for the space between the ring finger and the pinky - curve it (again, as well as you can). If you look at your own hand (or my demented sketch) then you'll see that the space between fingers is curved, not pointy like your base has.
Image

Hope I have helped at least a little bit...

Her arm's a bit pillow-shaded, the hand is a bit small (although it does look cute...) and she looks a bit wall-eyed. I like her though, I'm sure she'll be quite popular after you publish her.
