@chohole: Horo beat me to it, mom looking like she was on the way down for a nose plant. She also looks like she’s listing to starboard a bit.
A good way to get a general idea of how a figure would be posed is to stand in front of a mirror and do the pose. Observe how you’re standing, feet position, posture, hand/finger/arm positions, where your body weight is placed, your head position, the overall look while holding the pose.
And whether or not, as you’ve done in that scene, action is taking place. Because action brings in its own characteristics, it’s equally important to view yourself in a mirror so you can get the body weight distribution correct. In your image, the figure appears to be taking a step forward, yet her upper body is leaning too far to the right. Moving forward would have the upper body centered over the hips, the hips would be slightly forward and the bodies weight would be on the right leg. And if she was really in a hurry, the upper body would be more forward but still centered over the hips. Think of a sprinter not long after the start of a race. They’re not in their starting position, but not in a full upright position either.
I really do like what you’ve done, especially the little girl’s shadow and leg. It adds without adding. I do agree with Horo about softening the shadows. Right now it looks like there’s a spot light on both figures.
