    How should I fix in this illustration?

    I finished this illustration, but I need you to see what can I fix. This one was intended to practice colouring in order to create a romantic atmosphere.

    Thanks you in advance!

    Because this is a color thing.
    let's talk about the colors ..
    First thing I see is the hair . it seems too intense
    Bounce light doesn't seem to effect ..
    You should think about that.

    This is kind of like bringing your wrecked car to the mechanic and asking about the paint job. There's nothing wrong with drawing this kind of stuff, but if it's really what you want to do you MUST have a better understanding of anatomy.

    The colors aren't amazing. The hair is pretty intense on the redhead, and their skin tones are very dull and murky. Imo that's not what you need to practice right now. Both of their breasts, arms, and hands look wonky as all hell, especially where the red-head's hand appears out of nowhere over the blonde's left hand. Her arm just isn't even there. Abandon color for now and do figure studies to get a better grasp on what the body actually looks like.

    To follow up on this you probably wanna take a step back from doing stylized anatomy, even if its what you wanna do in the end studying realistic anatomy still makes less realistic stuff look better and more believable.

    Work on anatomy. The orange hair is too distracting maybe tone it down a bit.

    Adding onto this, successful manga and anime artists study anatomy closely before they stylize the figure. Even Oda (The red-head is giving me One-Piece vibes), whose artwork is very stylized, is a competent draftsman.

    Wanting to emulate their work is fine, but there's a way to do it properly. Even when you get good at drawing the figure, use LOTS of reference for your illustrations.

    Hirohiko Araki is an amazing manga artist with decades of experience, and even he leaves nothing to chance. He cross references the poses he wants to draw constantly. Even though he probably could wing it and we'd be none the wiser, staying true to a convincing form is important to him.

    Thanks for take your time to give your advice. Please tell me if you know about some anatomy material beside Loomin's ones.

    There are lots of nude model pictures for artists just on Google. Some aren't the best quality, or might not be specifically what you want, but it's good for practicing with.
