Carl Larsson didn't use much shading.
I like your image. The elements of the image are different and imaginative which is a good thing. Love the clothesline.
Besides the problems with the composition and lack of atmospheric...
They look great to me! I'll let others who know what they are talking about with environments do the critiquing :)
Maybe look at "Color and Light" by James Gurney if you haven't already for ideas...
They are cute! Looking forward to seeing your painted versions :)
I like to listen to podcasts and audiobooks. Then the "talking" part of my mind is busy and I can focus on the art.
Portraits are not easy. To improve your work, I would recommend what is often recommended here - draw from life. Start to get a better understanding of how light falls on forms, and how the head is...
I can't see the images?
This might help for the contrapposto. Pay attention to the angle of the hips and shoulders and how the spine curves.
The right leg looks a bit spaghetti like, it needs more definition and...
An easy fun read is the White Trash Zombie series. Quite a funny and smart story.

Did you use any references for the person laying down?

Nice start! Keep working on anatomy, from life as much as possible!
A new print and a color exercise:
The octopus arms, the headless body, the crying boy, and the face to the left in the Living Corpse page all have something in common - they all are stuck to the edge of each image. To me, they bring...
That ugly mug is such a contrast to the cutesy design. My first reaction was similar to that of Arenhaus. Then I asked my 7-year-old to take a look, and she it was "weird" which is a word of...
I don't know, to me the whole piece looks crowded and disorganized, so I agree with everyone else who recommended studying composition.
Definitely scale the image down.
Read this book.
Her eyes are huge. If you make them smaller, you have plenty of space for some eyelids. And maybe add a neck? The space under her head is a rather empty space.
A few recent sketches.
