Oh I am sorry what I meant to say was what are the good parts and the bad parts of my drawing
It's cool, man, I can definitely give you some tips to making some characters.
The bad, and pretty much the easiest thing to see, is that it's messy. Doesn't ever really matter if a character is simple - in fact, that just usually make sit quite a bit easier to redraw and familiarize people with it, but you don't usually get away with making a character messy.
It looks like you created the character in Photoshop or the like. Grab that eraser and go over the picture once you're done with it - chip away at the line art, get it to a somewhat clean state.
The shading, well, you'll learn that one of the greatest things to play with is colour - mixing and matching, bringing life to a drawing. Do some colour study, this is a must for everyone - or at least experiment with colour. It's brilliant what the results can be.
The final thing would be perspective - from what I'm seeing, the perspective is off. Tricks looks bent, real bent, right around the midsection. Which cool - that can usually be fixed with some minor form of pre-panning before actually drawing the character.
Just keep at those three aspects - form, colour, and perspective - and you'll be drawing cute character with the best of them before you know it (so long as you, well, actively work at getting better).
To stay on topic, here's some random character I found on the internet. Reminds me a lot of Nights.
