Alright, so I finally got my line-art done, and am working on the coloring. I'm honestly horrible at shading, even with using countless references and studying objects and people irl. So any tips would be really helpful!

This is what I have so far. Anything I should change? Anything I can improve?
Also, the area is supposed to be well-lighted and is coming from two directions(upper left and upper right.) I hope I have the shading angles right. If not, mind steering me in the right direction?

it looks nice, however the person in the centre.... the head looks odd.

How so? I mean, I agree it looks odd, but how can I make it look less odd?

For the head, it needs to be more evenly rounded at the top and the chin is way off, too much to the left. I think if you make your lines different thickness in some areas, like on her dress ribbon, it will make your picture look a lot more dynamic and less flat. Also, maybe it's just me, but the wrinkles on her dress look like they are all going the wrong way. Like they are going in opposite directions. Dresses are supposed to be flowing, so they should generally curve in the same direction, especially near her hip area. Other than that it's pretty good. Hope this helps!
