Hello!

Can you show us some sketches to see how you construct your art, please?

At the moment, what I can say is that you have a cute art style and you seem to have a good eye for colors :)

I can also say that for shadows you use mostly soft shadows. Using both soft and sharp shadows tends to improve a lot the render. Sharp shadows are basically shadows with sharp edges, they are use for more intense shadows or for materials who gives sharp shadows (metal, shiny plastic...). You can use both sharp and soft shadows for one thing too (for skin for example it gives a nice render). My advice would be to use different kind of shadows, and to also use sometimes only sharp or only soft shadows to find what you like the best :)

I hope that helps! Keep up the great art!

I would say to try to use more construction lines. You seem to use them only for the top part of the head and the eyes, and you can use them for everything: body, limbs, the rest of the face and so on.
It's a good way to improve proportions and anatomy, but it also can stiffen the work a bit, so it's a good think to remember to also use photo references, and to draw while thinking of shapes to progress on all sides ^^

Hope that helps!
 
Personally i found that practicing fundamental art skills such as perspective, drawing from life and anatomy studies can overall improve ones skill regardless of art-style. The idea is that the greater your understanding of how things work in life the better you will be able to apply it in your own style.
Along with constant practice and trying new thing every now n then, it really just depends on how long your at it.
