I really hope you dont mind.
It seems that I have developed a dirty habit of really butting into peoples works lately. I couldnt hold back from doing the same to yours again.

I agree that the anatomical approach for such a scene would not be possible. But when you consider the story telling ability of such a feature
I think most would read what is told more than anything else.
You shall of course have to find a way to feed it to the viewer as best as you can. One could suggest a Genie approach
or a way a ghost would bend and flop
or just make them completely separate images
one of a head
blended into the decors. The other the hands… blended into the over flooding frost or lace.
Shall you notice I had in fact even offered the hands coming from INSIDE the mirror!
But my apologies were not exactly for the mirror
They were more for the stance of your figure. Yes I understand English and I definitely understand what finally set for a pose and am really satisfied with it. Means
But there were some things in that pose that lacked the particular ability your earlier sketches had
I did three quick sketches that might bring my point better:
I know the are not perfect… and most possibly not proportional… But I had to use a mouse since I didnt want to go through the trouble of scanning and then posting. And it is not as easy as a pen and paper.
And my plan was more through hoping that you would get the idea rather than take them directly as a reference.
Here I tried to show you three possible poses where the model can remain looking at just about the same area you wished to have her look at…
In the middle I sampled a model that has about the ability to look at the same point by forcing her body to the limits of her neck.
The one on the images right is again forcing her neck to her limits (The first girl)
but is not able to look at the same point. She has to do the rest with her eyes because her neck will not permit her to rotate any further without twisting from her back as well. This particular character holds the similar stance as yours
The one on the images left is looking at about the same place and has not had a need to lock her neck. She can look even more back.
The problem here is than that your vertebral column bends sort of inhumanly
.especially at her neck. As flexible as it may seem: Our neck can do a turn only so much. I agree that the atlas bone does most of the bending
but to be able to turn back so much
you would have to break it sort of.
What I think has happened is that you kept onto your pose of the earlier ketches (Who wouldnt? she is breath taking) and included a change for the torso
but they just didnt build on top of each other correctly.
Youll better notice what I mean if you look only at the neck of your lady.
I hope you still dont hate me.
