Subject title: Values and stuff

Hi guys, I'm posting a speed paint that I finished minutes ago. I know that I have problems with the anatomy but I want to focus your critiques on something else.
I really suck in coloring and finding correct values, so I will appreciate any advices that you can share about that.

Thank you. ;)

I would suggest you go further with the rendering first. For starters though, you need way darker darks, as you have almost none. Even if you are going for a cell shaded look, you still need to get much darker and wrap them around the body to show the form better.

If your main issue is values, I really recommend working in black and white first, then worry about color. It looks like you are missing a lot of darker values, or dark accent values.
