still working on my caricature technic. that's supposed to be me in middle btw..
These are great man - may I ask what the assignment specifics are and is this all Photoshop?
I would rework the color on your lips. They look a bit necrotic and low lit for your illustration. Over all the face seems to low lit vs the surround of your band. I think maybe some variation of a reddish tone in the cheeks and take more of the golden color from the pic and highlight your forehead with it.
I think there's just a bit too much black. Some dark blues and purples might be a nice substitute.

I think the heads are too big to be taken seriously. There's a difference between perspective and caricatures, check the proportions.
The front man's tongue makes this look non-pretty, bring it in a bit. It'll be more like yelling. I searched Google for some reference on yelling mouths.
The problem with black (and white) is that your eye tracks to it instantly, which will take away from your centre focus. Use deep shades of purple, blue, and grey. Stay away from pure black and white.
It's...close. It's neat, but it needs a tweak or two. I can't put my finger on it. Maybe it is color, but I think it's more that the faces need sharpening in spots.
Did you see this guy's stuff in Finally Finished? He might possibly have ruined caricature for me for life.
I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).
A graphic design related note, since you included font. The metallica band logo is a well known mark and as such even marginal errors are easy spotted. (including typography flaws like to much space between T and A)
It's not mandatory but I would go for a very precise logo maybe even import the logo as a vectors graphic.
Alternatively, if the logo is meant as part of the scene = the banner on stage, called backsleeve I believe, than I would bring it where it belongs, in the background.
yeah.. thanx guys.. btw.. my head supposed to be big... but still, perspective-wise... it is out..heh
and ..no.it was Painter9 all the way..
I agree with interceptor about too much black. The thing about black is "you can never go back" (sorry!) Objects are rarely pure black, and using them on your caricatures is too stark and any contrasts you make after is hard to come back from. I think it can work well for edges, but once you start adding those kind of blacks inside the rest of the form, it really can make things tricky.
I do love the perspective and you have a great painterly feel to this picture.
