I know it is just a sketch and not a precise drawing of a T-34/85 but I would recommend to increase the size of the turret and angle a bit more the front part because the body resembles a Panther rather the an T-34.
No offence and regard.

I'm sorry about that Imade a confusion saying that it is a T-34/85 I was meaning T-44 :D

Ahh.. Thanks thanks for the feedback. I will see what I can do with another sketch in future.

Yes, you are right about the glacis resembling that of a Panther.

I didn't base the sketch on this photo but I did use a photo reference which was in a similar position to this one.

I think from that perspective, perhaps the turret appeared deceptively smaller than it really is? I am not sure. I would have to visit that tank for photo references. I plan to make some trips to a few more tank museums in the coming few years.
