    The anatomy, the rigid lines, and the unrealistic shading.

    With your VERY cartoony style, I think cell shading would suit you better

    The small value range is what makes it flat, you also tend to use a light and pastel look which would be around 2-ish I guess. (see image below)

    To make the image pop and seem 3D you want to be using a large range of values (for example from 1 through to 5 in a realistic or portrait piece), from really dark (shadows) to really light (light saturation) and then halftones (Value 3 and there about) to shade the areas where light and absence of light mix. I would say you use 2-3 which is only a change of 2, however you are looking for a change of 3/4 maybe even 5 if you were going for realism.

    I get what JJ is saying but hhhh this is all so confusing to me.
    Let me just get this drawing finished and see if it looks any better.

    I really like the style of shading I'm using now. Cell shading to me is really difficult and I don't like flats at all.

    Hmm... I'm sorry if the way I'm writing it is hard to understand :/

    However, I found this video will help you and goes over a bit of what I said;

    Ah okay, I will have to save that for later because I don't have speakers.

    Okay, I don't know if you've noticed, but you're "shading" is just basically a lots of gradients in different colors for each different body part. This isn't a perfect example in any way, but I tried to recreate your style, but using better anatomy, smoother lines, and shading that matches the shape of the face, hair, clothes, and body. I used a limited range of colors like you usually do as well. This is just to show how a few changes in different CORE areas of art can change your art:

    Just saying here, that looks really great UvU and thanks for the little sample. I'll try and do something similar to that soon.
