    Set intermediate goals. Break down the big picture into stages, areas, figures etc. Work on each one, and stop at once when you begin to do it mechanically. Switch to checking that everything clicks...

    Your biggest mistake was not focusing enough on the structure. This looks like a figure drawing superficially, but the structure and perspective are all over the place, wobbly and not convincing....

    1. Read the form better. Edges of the shadow are where a lot of form is visible the best; you have not been using those much. Learn to read and analyze the planes. Study the skull.

    The things you describe require a better awareness of form and light than you show in this sample.

    It is possible, of course, but not by tweaking the stylization. You could make sure that the...

    This is not a painting, really, just a colored line drawing. The term "painting" assumes that there is a representation of light and the lit environment in the artwork.

    What style of painting do you have in mind, in particular?

    Quit drawing the outlines and begin to plan the structure of the form. Until you do that, you are not going to progress at any reasonable speed.

    The things you apparently did from life do stand out. The rest is... let's say that you are relying too heavily on noise and not nearly enough on the form and lighting.

    Don't go into any detail at this stage, or try to cheat with textured brushes.
