I don't have enough to write an in depth critique, so I'll put my tips here.
Aside from the hands being really small, the proportion seems about right, although the anatomy itself needs a bit of work.
I really like the background and the concept, which are both quite nice to look at and think about.
As far as shading goes, I only see a single dark and light value per color. That along with the rather stiff anatomy makes this drawing look VERY flat.
The hair also looks rather stiff, but that's okay in an anime drawing.
What you CAN do, however, is add many different shades and variations of the colors, and blend them well to get a nice look. It's up to you to study anatomy and take my advice :iconcryforeverplz:
I don't want to look like a self-advertiser, but you can look at some of my works as reference for technique.
Hope I helped OuO :iconnyancatplz:

should I put more in the description if I'm expecting critiques? or is the drawing it's self still on a simple level where you don't need a whole critique? are the hands really that small they look right to me the scythe is supposed to be giant I might have messed up the hands when lining it up as a 2 handed weapon tho so you're probably right. the backdrop is just something random I threw together on photoshop with a gradient and some of the filters I'm glad it came out well tho the concept is pretty simple because it's based on an old drawing and it's the grim reaper re-imagined which is really clique so I'm not sure that wins me too many points also I tried to keep the design simple because I'm going to write a short comic with this character so I wanted it to look good while being something I can draw over and over easily. I was worried about the shading tho it's never something I've been good at and outside of practicing this is the first time I've really tried to do shading entirely digital it came out better than I expected but still pretty bad I use photoshop do you know any tricks that might help me smooth out the transitions because I tried the smug tool and that just kinda makes a mess. I was worried about the anatomy tho I've always had trouble with perspective and angles and depth I thought shading would help but I'm just not good at that foreshortening might work better but I really need to get used to doing both. I was going for spiky anime hair tho. I don't get what you mean by only one light and one dark value there's about 4 or 5 shades to each color there's only one darkest and one lightest value to each but is that something wrong (I'm really bad at shading) I've studied anatomy before and while it might help me draw more illustrations like this better I want to avoid it now because I'm going to start drawing comics so I want I simple relaxed style that's easy and looks good even I I have to sacrifice a little realism and detail. there's nothing wrong with self promoting in order to make any real progress in art business wise you always have to be a little conceited and you're really good and a lot better than me and specifically better in a lot of the areas I'm having trouble with so that's good advice thank you very much should I add the story into to description if I want critiques I wanted help with just the art so I thought it's be a bad idea to include the story or plot here and I wasn't trying to make a character sheet or anything so I'm not really sure what else I can include in the description or was it because there wasn't enough to say about the art that you didn't write a critique?

I just didnt have enough to write a full critique? I'm sorry if I offended you by not writing out a full critique :(
I just didn't have that many complaints about the art itself to write out something extremely detailed like a lot of good users do.
The different shades aren't that noticeable to the naked eye, and they're a little far apart. May I borrow your concept and revise the shading a bit? I don't mean to be malicious or offensive in any way if that's how I seem :iconcryforeverplz:
