These are pretty cool!
I think the first one could use a better focal point. The most important part of the painting is the skeletal warrior, yes? You could use more value contrast on him, and more unified values in the background, as now the most important part seems to be the clouds and the helicopter.
The socond one is neat, but I think there's too much difference between the hard lines of the face and the soft lines of the tech around it. It seems like his helmet was an afterthought pasted on top. I also think the helmet needs more value variation and better defined planes, right now it's rather flat.
The last one... Well, I like the sky much more than the head. It seems rushed.
What medium are these?
Thanks Serpian. Those are rock solid and vital comments.
I thank you for your elaborate comment on my painting...! Indeed,in this painting I have not been so concerned with the formal aspects but have rather focussed on some more subjective elements. I have tried to convey
a kind of intuition about the infinite and this feeling is in a way , at least for me, represented by the landscape behind the figure. Perhaps I should say that the landscape mirrors the innerworld of the robot figure ( or more precisely the innerworld of the artist or hopefully the beholder as well) and therefore the robot and helicopters are not really meant to float 'materially' in the surrounding space. To my feeling ( perhaps wrongly!) any effort to make the picture more 'materially' sound would undo the atmosfere I tried to catch in this image.I have chosen this strange tension to catch what I did intend to express. I suppose it is just a very subjective matter... I have followed my feelings in this and surely did leave some rationality behind. Of course you never know if your choices have been right, sometimes you simply feel forced to obey these inner movements!

Oh here are the sketches. I should have offered them in the first post.
These sketches took minutes to complete so I wanted to capture the moment in paint.
The paintings are:
36 X 24; Oil on Dutch Linen.
