    Hi Jonov! Welcome to CA!

    I like your colors and your characters' eyes look very vibrant. I might suggest adding a clean ink layer over top your sketches to really get those fine smooth lines on your characters before painting.

    Also I think the hair looks a bit too solid, like dough or clay. Why does it look like that? It's because he shading is too blotchy and irregular - you need to follow the hair's overall shape.

    The pink haired woman: the silhouette of her hair is smooth and straight, not wavy. It has long gentle curves. The darks and lights have to follow that smooth form - a confident brush stroke across the whole 'wave'. It would also be nice to see some defined strands, and even a little separation or fraying of the hair strands to show it's hair instead of a solid object. Also the end bit around the shoulder, try flowing some hair over her shoulders. It doesn't usually bunch up like that at the bottom. The far end of the head should show some hair peeking through behind her neck.

    I did a quick paintover for you to show what I mean, I hope it helps:
