Say what you don't like about your paintings - that will help with advice.
Anatomy books are always great. learn how us humans are put together and it will help your details a bunch.
Drawing naked people is awesome. Once you draw a lot of them you will learn where the details need to be.
I really like the idea and the colours of this painting. The anatomy needs some fixing though. It looks to me like an unborn baby, and if that's the case, the shoulders should not be wider than the head. Also I think the legs are too long.
That being said, there is no umbilical cord, so maybe I'm wrong The colours and facial proportions make me think otherwise. Either way, it's a very nice start!
look closely at the eye you've put on his head: the way you slid it into the skull makes his skull look flattened and squarish where the eye is. I'm chalking this up to the heavy use of white that doesn't let you see volume, and I suggest forgetting about the eye for a second, painting the volume of the skull, then placing the eye accurately according to the perspective you're using. Painting the volume it sits on makes it easier for you to place it.
Also maybe it's just personal preference, but maybe toning down that white in your painting? it's like blind spots of white. and the indigo in the eye should be worked into the skin tones or background so that it's not standalone like that
Some anatomy mistakes, I especially see it in the shoulders, so as others have told you, revising the anatomy with the help of a book would help a great deal!
Welcome to CA and good luck
