FIRST THING: DO NOT freak out over the weird legs. I kinda spaced out and forgot to use my usual method of using a lower layer for a wireframe skeleton. JUST. CRITIQUE. THE. LIGHTING. I experimented with my airbrush tool and managed to work on some lighting-type method. So yea, this is just about the coloring basically. Oh, and I used I fill tool instead of manually filling in the colors.

Why would you bother uploading something unfinished? The art forum isn't going to forget you that fast, anyway I'll critique your lighting you spazz.
when you digitally paint you need to blend the colors so they gradually become lighter and the light source is clearly determined
A set up I found useful when painting is
Paint (details, never use black or outline)
Lineart (remove when details show image in final form)
Right now you only have two layers and it's incredibly messy...And as you said I won't bother getting into your anatomy.
Something quick I did. When you get better you can do two layers (lineart)/(details/base paint).
Fruit is the best way to learn how to blend because they have such an amalgam of colors
