I am a clone
I am not alone
Every fibre of my flesh
and bone
is identical to the other's
Everything i say
is in the same tone
as my test-tube brother's
There is no choice
between us
If you had ever seen us
you'd rejoice
in your uniqueness
and consider every weakness
something special
of your own.

Hey, not bad!
You have some great anatomy to start working from.
There are a few main things I notice that throw off the picture, which you may want to practice in more detail.

First of all, her neck is very poorly defined. You can tell where its MEANT to be, but it seems just a little short and it causes the shoulders to become flat.
Look at photographs or yourself in a mirror; Shoulders are gental slopes, not corners.

On a related note, the arms are a bit long, but that's just because the elbows are misplaced or ill-defined.
They always fall almost exactly at the middle of the torso...IF and only IF the arms are hanging straight down, as they are here. You can use the head-to-height system that seems common to gauge it, or just eyeball it.

On the note of the head, its interestingly styled, but you made a mistake that is easy to avoid in the future. Shape out the ENTIRE head, including parts that will be covered by hair, before drawing the hair.

This drawing kinda gives the idea that her head just vanishes, and the hair is directly related to the head...the same way clothes are related to the underlying skin.

Finally, I suggest you look up some proportions are far as the torso goes. Her chest gives the impression of being saggy, and doesn't seem shaped properly even if it was meant to be.

Again, you have a good start for anatomy, it just needs some refining.
Hope this helps.
