More archery realism...

[edit] Almost forgot: The position of the right hand in the color bow shot is a bit off. The elbow should be pointing towards the back, in line with the arrow. The way she is standing now, she can't exert any real force on the string. In the BW shot, this is not as much of a problem, because the elbow is not visible [end edit]

Yes, the pulling forearm should be in line with the arrow, as the force of cocking the arrow is in that direction. Would definitely add a more dynamic feel to the shot.

Baladam is correct about the knees.

Also, the arrow lines up to the eyes, as you sight down the shaft when sighting. Olympics...not cupid.
