    Brrr, man those faces creep me out. They're all dead and empty. You try to copy the expressions and faces of the people in the photos, but there's no life or real form to the characters you paint and you smoothen out some of the planes and creases of the face which makes everything look even creepier and plastic-y.
    Not to mention you only use refs for the faces, but everything else from the whole bodies to the hands are suffering from great anatomy mistakes.

    EDIT: Also it's nice that you have patience to put lots of details, but you're overkilling your pics with unnecessary detail that distracts the eye and yet fails to convey the form, the guy's hair in the first image is a good example of this.

    How much do you actually paint from real life objects?

    thanks! It was a lil' rought but true
    I have a problem with expressions and i know it. When i was younger i was attending art classes and drawing from nature but now i don't really have time for that and my surroundings aren't full of models unfortunately. So with little possibilities I'm trying to make it work ^^; But thanks for mentioning that i will try to work it out

    I think it's good that you're using reference. But as long as you're not taking the photos yourself I think you should be careful with using exact likenesses because of the legal side of things. It will also be more helpful for you to first sketch out how you want the image to look, pushing it as far as you're able to, and then find yourself a reference to correct with. It will give more life and creativity to your paintings.

    I should just add it to my signature.

    Get the book called Drawing the Head and Hands. Read it cover to cover and draw everything in there at least once. Then come back to this picture.

    Well. Maybe you do. But you still end up with a near portrait like version of your reference. Even the hair styles are the same. The above is good advice. Study the head and how to construct it, then use the refs to correct in stead of just copying. Using several references for the face is a good way to get a unique look.

    Another thing you need to look at is color theory. Avoid black unless you're very confident in how to use it. It will flatten the image and make your colors muddy. Don't just make shadows a darker color of your base color. You will loose saturation in both light and shadow, and the color of the shadows will be affected by the ambient light that reaches them. So under a blue sky all planes in shadow facing upwards will trend towards blue, etc.

    tobbA thanks!
    I know what you mean i tried to be very close to reference because of the fact that i want the people (on painting) to look like this actors. But i know you're right.
    About expressions here is some my older (finished) art i guess this one gives off some emotions and not skin-colour shades.

    but.. i will change Janes expression, now I'm studing Loomis book ( many thanks for Calireayn for link) I tried to sketch other expressions on Lisbon but i kind of like how she looks like now it was part of the plan to make her somehow emotionless. However i will think about her expression too. Maybe after reeding Loomis i will get some ideas

    The usual thing: stop copying photos, learn to understand what you are seeing. An artist doesn't copy the picture, he understands and interprets the form.

    So study the basics. Structure, perspective, lighting, anatomy. Work in pencil, don't touch digital yet.
