hi. Not really happy with this. any ideeas guys. I wanted a stong line work and more flat colour like alphonse mucha esque.

If you want strong line-art and flat colors like Mucha, then you’ll have to actually utilize those characteristics. For example, actually use clean line art instead of the sketchy look you used, and use flat colors colors of the full range values and painted textured brushes. You might want to also do a Mucha master copy just to try walking in his shoes and get a better feel for what’s actually involved in his style.
