Flame: Critique needed!

Offline / Send Message
Hi there!
I am new to this forum, but I am really in need of critical feedback! I hope you guys can help.
I did a sculpt and it definitely lacks in many ways, as perfection wasn't my goal here. But I am mainly looking for help concerning the face. Something seems wrong, but I can't really put my finger on it! Maybe you see something I don't? I'd be very grateful for a different set of eyes.
Of course, if you have any other advise, I am more than happy to learn. 
The concept I based my sculpt on loosely is an amazing painting on Instagram by Maxine Vee: https://www.instagram.com/p/CEiKFiwlHHJ/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link 5

    I think maybe the problem with the face might be the nostrils from the front, nose looks fine from the side but from the front i feel like it´s off.
    you could try a simpler knob type shape from the front like this. Aside from that I think the flame could use a little gesture, and puffing the cheeks might be fun? I might be wrong but those are my two cents.
    fun piece tho.
    Actually one more thing I feel like from the side view her wrist looks like it´s her elbow but from the front you see it´s the end of the arm, I think maybe extending the arms so that the wrist becomes the elbow and the arms grab onto the opposite leg might look better and fit her proportions better.

    Hey, thanks so much for your feedback! Especially twisting the flame makes a real difference! And you are right, the nose is wrong! Thanks! With the arms, maybe the problem is, that there are no visible elbows, so the eye just "chooses" a convenient place? I think I left them out because of the concept -> very stylized. But now I think a bit more real would be better readable. I find it hard to know where to stylize and where to keep it more real anyways. I guess it's the training of the eye as well ^^
