    need help learning

    Contrary to popular belief, just adding color to something doesn't make it better. Your best bet would be to get a book on how to draw (check amazon for some highly ranked ones) and stick to it.

    Although your rendering of the character isn't really the best, I like that you already have a grasp of pose. Posing your subjects in an interesting way really helps breathe life into your art, but if they're not rendered realistically then they'll always appear way too cartoony.

    You're going to have to learn about anatomy, line weight and lighting (what I consider the 3 main basics of drawing, though some would probably disagree) before you start adding colour and 'finishing' your compositions.

    There are also many pinned topics around the forums that give quick lessons on line weight, value etc, so that's always a good place to start.

    So, practice, experiment and post your sketches so we can steer you in the right direction.

    Keep it up and happy drawing.

    If will take a good deal of learning to become good at drawing from reference (life or picture). It will take a lot more to become good at drawing from your imagination because you need to have good understanding of anatomy, perspective and what not. Like Dogfood said, get a good book, or find some good tutorials on the web and learn the basics if concept drawing is your ambition.
