Ok, so i am super nervous about uploading anything to here because there is crazy talented artists on here, but i really think i need some critiques to push me in the right direction. Here is some sketchbook stuff and a recent portrait study i did in photoshop, be as harsh as you want as long as it is constructive.

my advice would be to work more on the basics.
The first portrait you posted has some anatomical problems, mainly the nose that it's too long.
The last portrait you showed looks better though.
Work a bit more on the values as well.
About the still life, work more on the edges and over all rendering. For example look at the cast shadow, you have rendered it all with hard edges. Cast shadows are usually hard when they're near the object and go progressively softer as they fall further away from the object.
Keep practicing! still lives have helped me a lot to learn more about painting.
