So the believability of the drawing will greatly depend on parts of the body hanging with appropriate weight. I have added a bit of volume to the hair on the right side of the head, allowed her right breast to give in more to the gravity and equally importantly I widened the top of the rib cage (top meaning the part closest to the head) as the weight of the whole body would be pushing down into the shoulders, the place of contact with the floor.
