Make sure you always add some sort of outline for hard-to-see things. Also, make sure you are adding highlights around which are close to the main color, but not too close. Darker shades and lighter shades should almost always be around the edges, and make sure you have a variety of at 2-4 shades surrounding the character. The background should always be simplistic, but still have enough shading and highlighting for it to blend in with the main scene, like in my Among us memes. Also, for beginners, you should always take a transparent background character and try to replicate by drawing side by side. This improves both accuracy and your feel with the mouse / mousepad. Normally, you should ALWAYS use small thickness for highlights and shades. This makes it more realistic.

OK, now WHERE to shade and highlight. Usually there is always a place of light located. Take a light bulb for example. image that 0 is the light bulb, and 1 is your character. Lets take an example here

0
............1

now if you look at the light bulb, it should be shining all around it, meaning your character must be immersed to light. Wherever your character is having light shone directly at it (in this case, the top left of 1), should have most highlights and little to no shades. Now, where do the shading go? exactly the opposite. Most shades at the spot where light barely / doesn't go to, which would be the bottom right of 1. Now lets talk about 3D shading. Lets say your character's glass piece in among us pops out a bit. That means that most of the time, there should be shading opposite to the light and prior with highlight (which is where light is). After this, make sure that your shading and highlighting is similar with the base coat, but not too similar in which it needs some sort of outline. In order to show 3D hands, make sure you first study hand anatomy. Look at your hand. Do what the character is doing and look at it from the drawing's prespective. Try to look at the shades, the pointiness, the bumps, everything. Then apply most of it to the drawing. Make sure these drawings are not rushed, since my drawings actually take like 30-40 minutes per frame. Everything should be perfect.

Finally, the texture. Make sure your objects arent too round, or else it may mess with the flow. Textures or material should usually be drawn with a large sum of shading to blend it in and not make it pop out too much.

Hmm, i would say that you should start studying human anatomy, 3D structure display and body ratio. The body parts ratio is quite off, and the main structure of the body doesnt seem right. For example, looking at how the arm at the right goes straight, but after the elbow joint is reached, it actually curves to around a 90 degree angle. Of course, this is not possible. Same with the waist, how the width of the body actually starts going into a more skinnier approach from the wrong spot. This sort of structure should be below the chest.

I like what you have done with the hands, I think thats quite good. However, The texture of the clothing is a bit off. For example, if you look at the texture at the right side near the chest, it's got that texture. But looking back at the left side of the chest, it's completely straight. This sort of makes the image seem odd. I like the strap, but remember that this strap isn't drawn into the shirt, so make sure that after the strap curves behind the person, it shows that 3D aspect.

Also the neck should be very shaded since the head is 3D, meaning it is blocking the neck from sunlight (unless the light source is coming from the bottom, exposing the neck)

I would really like to see

Sorry if im spam messaging you, but I just wanted to add that you should probably start learning how to draw water. I've actually gotten so much better just by drawing 3-4 cups of water. I'm now able to freely draw water flowing and spilling by memory without any additional help. IF YOU DON'T TAKE YOUR TIME, CONSIDER YOUR TIME WASTED! It took me around 1-2 days to draw my first cup of water, so it should take you around 3-4 to draw it almost perfectly. Soon enough you may finish within half an hour, so keep at it!

I also strongly recommend you to get an electrical eraser, it is so good to getting those smooth cuts and highlights. I would advise you to get this one called Derwent Battery Operated Eraser for 12.99. It's quite accurate.

Also, i have a question regarding on how you shade. What tools do you use? Or do you use your fingers like some other aspiring artists?

OK, Well i'm about to give you a life-changing tool for drawing. BLENDING STUMPS. Trust me you will want to get these, they are extremely cheap and they are so much easier to use. The shading comes in nicer too. It doesn't matter which company or anything, all of them are great. Also, they help get rid of some of that shaded led around the paper, i can clearly see some of those led marks lol.
