Man his wrist drawing the sword looks like its at an insane angle for real life, but fits great for the cartoon style!
If you choose to oil it up id be happy to have a look.
The best advice I can think of right now is: draw more or paint even more! Maybe take a break from creativity and show us a quick study or two.

Nice stuff, keep doing the face studies. If you want to learn from it and put your mind into it, you will. I usually know that I've worked actively If I get real hungry after a while, the brain burns a lot more energy when you think and focus actively then if you just do something on reflex ;]

oh no! how can I fix the hand then! pld: I know the thumb is supposed to be down, but im not sure about everything else
here is quicky, decided to play with oils. was fun, havent used them in over a year. this one is just a little over an hour. still not the skin color I was going for, actually still looks like my first try. I used only the basic colors, blue, yellow and red. the face got wonky, as it always does...buh. I guess I could fix the lips tomorow when the paint is dry

First don't stress about the hand. Your using a cartoon like style. So roll with it for now and finish the job. Once done I suggest a study on the realtionships between the wrist forearm and hand draw a page or two full of positions referenced from photos, books or the mirror.
The wet painting actually looks more alive than the dry one. Its cool you are able to capture it in that state. On the Olive skin try perhaps reading up on it a bit? Try this site:

Just a random search I did on skin tones. Keep at it, maintain a good work ethic and you will get there.
