I think you have two worlds colliding here.

There is a tonal interest in the hand, then the face is pure illustration. The depth of the background space could be enhanced through a temperature change. The hair is a bit flat; leaving me wanting some more value and sculpting. I dig the cat crawl pose, and the daring break-the-edge experience you've created.

Not sure where you were going with this.

I hear what gavin is saying, it's like there is light and depth on the body/hands, but then it's gone into fantasy with her face and hair ... so the two elements seem disconnected

Both aspects have their rewards, I suggest leaving this one and using these observations on the next piece ;)

I think this painting may work.

The right hand worried me at first and particularly the highlight on the little finger but the way you did it does not distract from the face and eye which is probably most important in the composition.

It is flat but that may be your style.
