This is a lovely piece of work that shows an approach to drawing which take the best of redefines them into something new a bold. What you've done is good, it's a style that certainly has potentials if you continued exploring and perfecting it since you shown a good eye and hand in working with cell shading and this clean anime/illustrative approach. It has charm and energy with the clean use of colour and sharp line art which although simple to some work a great deal here in keeping things controlled yet expressing power at the same time. Other additions such as the Gaussian blur, soft light on the right side and warm palette of colour of the background with the foreground are lovely additions in making this feel energetic and alive to view. Your style too is something with impressive appeal since although you've mentioned an area of weakness you've tackled over areas that do show your skill and understanding in anatomy and character rendition of your own self. It's a nice approach and you've certainly know your handsome self to reflect it some well here XD
On the downside, while the hands as you mentioned area weakened area it does feel that working a little more on the stomach/abdomen area is something else to consider. The way that has been presented feels unbalanced against the rest of the body, though looking at this it might be more to do with how you've drawn the abs themselves than the full body. The way they area angled makes it's that his stomach area has turned a full 180 degrees or at least 15 degrees compared to the rest of his body is facing. It' not bad and a good approach but something around that area just does not feel finished or matching when compared to the look of the rest of the body.
The longest comment I've ever had.Ever. And thanks for pointing everything out,I'll keep it all in mind when drawing next time. And sorry for the short comment,I just don't know how to answer to all of this xD
