What looks bad exactly? You have not posted an example of your work.

How to display external source photos:
Take the image url, highlight it

click the button that looks like mona lisa
you should get this


Do you happen to have a smaller version of this or is this your 1:1 scale of the image?

My critique:
Here's a quick edit of some points I think you could improve on. For starters, your sprite is pretty huge. Nothing wrong with making huge sprites, but typically when starting off you wanna start small. My first sprite was a cube, which I am pretty sure every on in their pixel art career has done eventually. I compared it to the size of one of my biggest sprites I have made, and it towers it. Secondly, your light source isn't really consistent, or makes much sense, unless you have multiple light sources? which I am not really sure you do, you should work on your shadows. Thirdly, I kept finding weird random pixel noise. especially by the feet, and in the corner. Indicating you saved it as a jpeg? even though the file name says its a png so I am not quite sure what is going on there.
I believe you need to work on quite a bit of things, but it's not too bad as a drawing itself I suppose. It displays the idea so its a start.

not enough info.
what r u trying to do here?
What's the story with this character?
what is she (or he lol) supposed to be?

I think the linework is pretty good but its hard to tell what kind of pose this is.
the hands look raised a bit like half ready to fight but the rest of the pose is as if she might be holding a microphone nervously singing karaoke.
either way u could push the feet a bit further apart

I think you should bend her knees a bit and thin her shins as well. As for the skirt, you can check this out; Human Sprite
