I already submitted the entry as is, so I'm just wondering what to take on if I were to redo a similar concept. The anime/manga look...is not really intentional and I didn't notice it until I started coloring. I used to draw this kind of drawing a lot as a kid, but lost interest in the genre as I got older and sometimes the look just shows up.
Study anatomy. I know it's supposed to be stylized, but he/she could at least have equal legs. You need to learn it well to stylize it well.
Also there are problems with 3-dimensionality of various elements and his/her leg doesn't interact with the ropes it's supposed to be resting on. And so on.
So, in general observe more carefully the subject you're going to draw.
It doesn't cost You much to leave a comment in my sketchbook, and it can help me a lot.

Well, being open and not avoiding things (like say, "oops I can't draw X so I'll hide it/don't draw it") usually helps a lot. If your teacher has a suggestion how you can study better, ask him/her and give that method a try, and see if it works. Then try other methods and see if those work you too.
It's cute, but be sure to listen to these other guy's advice, they know what they're doing, and if they didn't then well, we'll all be in trouble.
