the picture is very cool, but there are some issues with the bow and how it's held. A recurve bow will be symmetric from top to bottom, meaning the arrow will be perpendicular to the bow at the point it which they intersect (in your picture, the top angle is ~100 degrees while the bottom is ~80). Secondly, when a recurve bow comes to full draw, the anchor (the point at which you stop drawing the bow back) will be either just underneath the chin, resting to the side of the face, or drawn so that the arrow is lined up with the eye (similar to kyudo), so your archer's anchor point is very low. That being said the way you drew the arm and shoulder is good, so you just need to raise the anchor point a bit and you'll be set.
P.S. at full draw, there should be a 65 degree angle from the bowstring to the arrow on either side, which should give you a nice reference for how big a bow should be and if the draw length is right.
What do you think?
