Damn. This is such a great picture, but the perspective of the gun is just... Not right. The top part of the gun (barrel, etc.) should be way more left (from her point of view) considering her hand and the grip.

Thanks!  It's a fun detail.  I like pairing a flat outline with rendered figure in certain cases.

Awesome, one critique though.  The angle of the body of the gun in relation to her arm and the pistol grip doesn't seem to match up.
