Congratulations, it really is a great piece of work. But as you stated, the hand does seem a bit off. May I suggest some changes that might help :

1. Try to bend her hand a bit. It seems her hand continues in a straight line from the fore-arm / wrist and that makes it more difficult to define where her hand starts.
2. Her fore-arm also seem a bit longer than it should and seems to affect her hand as well.

Other than that it looks really great ... Congratulations once again :clap:

Hi there, Aibrean! :)

I agree with Destineo:

And dont forget this main principle when handling your edges: on shadow areas you should use soft edges; on light areas, put your hard edges. (Regarding this, I think you should soften the arm).

Use this rule to create areas of interest on your paintings! The eyes always look first to the hard edges.

Hope this helps! See you around! :)

She kinda fuses into the tree I love that. The sky in the background needs some variation other than the clouds - it's too flat compared to the otherwise very busy painting.
