well, the colors are strong, interesting.

be carefull with the proportions ( or its proposital ? cartoon look?)

and that strange contours...
do you use a tablet ?

u could make a flat color base, starting from a scanned
sketch. selecting by areas and saving the selections.
it makes the brush to not exceed the contour.

take a look in the masters of the masters home page :
Craig Mullins.

he teaches a lot there.
