    I think this blog may be useful on clothing folds. Your folds right now are rather jagged and don't look like clothing.

    I noticed some bleeding into the cloth of the yellow background. The other thing I noticed is that you're doing halos or pillow shading where you're outlining areas with a lighter color.

    Yes, but it's still easier and better to use an xacto knife than a pair of child's scissors.

    That does look better OP, still crumbly but not as much.

    So in that drawing where is your light source supposed to be?

    I'd still think you would need to be shown how to use it, anyways its a pointless argument.

    I would still recommend practicing on line work, and maybe investing in a good book about.
    Good line work can make or break a drawing in my opinion

    If I'm not going by the wrong hand, I think it would be the left side of the drawing.

    What I mean is you can use any tool (you have to learn how to of course) but it's better to use BETTER tools.

    You need to practice shading. It doesn't look right.

    What's wrong with it besides the not-so-obvious light source?

    You might want to try a slightly different color palette especially for the background. The yellow and red were competing. I posted a quick paint over earlier on why you shouldn't halo things and give them a bit better consideration towards the light source. So I am a bit frustrated at the conversation going on, that people aren't trying to demonstrate or explain problems.
