Don't you dare give up!!!
I think a lot of your problem is the colours you use. The way I do it is I decide what colour each piece of my art is going to be and colour in everything with a flat colour. I always use my flats as my shadow colour and shadows are dark and don't have much colour in them, so everything is sort of a dark grey version of what I want it to be. Then I decide where my light source will be (in this case top right) and pick a more saturated, brighter colour. I fill in the parts of the shape that would get some light, even if not directly. Then I move on to highlights; the areas totally facing the light.
This is just a simplified version of what I think about when I colour and there are far better artists than I, but I hope this will help a little.
