Do more value studies and shut the fuck up. If you can't even do something as basic as your pic related it means you're just a beg fuck. Go practise values and ignore color for the moment.

most of his courses are on lighting which is definitely an important aspect but it won't help this anon with blending. You can do proper lighting and still suck at blending

It really be like that tho. Flat color, shade, HIGHLIGHT (you kinda skipped that one).

Just fucking steal your colors from better artists till you figure it out. Nobody's gonna take a color picker to your shit and cancel you because you borrowed a pallete.

Use Ctrl Paint. Hard round and soft round, the sinix vid in first reply. Albedo, shadow, and bounce/ambient are the main sources of light.

Learn to use RGB color sliders for color instead of just HSB/HSV. Read Lin ran's color tutorial, Sycra also made a video on it. The sliders clearly move in a pattern you'd understand if you understood color picking with RGB sliders.

It's in the name: stroke.
You should be stroking the canvas, not trying to scratch it or chip away at it. Smooth, fluid motions, as long as you can manage, that follow the forms.

Forget about colour until you have value down. If you look at this in greyscale you can see how flat the values are.

You also have no consistent light source. Her boobs and face are lit from top left, her left arm and torso is lit from top right and the way you lit her hair makes it look like the back of her skull is glowing yellow.

The answers is light + shadows.

Also colour palette
IE using the palette from a picture of a raspberry blueberry ice cream cone for a person.

You have to reference real life. Look at the color and lighting of a real photo, understand why it's doing what it's doing and apply the color the same way in your art.
