Very nice! Your sense of color is great!

If I was to crit one thing, it looks like you're avoiding drawing feet, or rushing them when you are drawing them. I'm terrible at drawing feet too, but you have to confront them!

Nice work, keep it up! As for advice, it seems to me, some of Your illustrations have a bit too high contrast - the transition from middle tones to black is too sudden. It might be monitor thing, though.

May I ask what brush or texture did You use for the last piece. Looks very believable.

Also, as a morning exercise I decided to do a little paintover. Hope You don't mind. My main concern is the contrast and to be more precise - bounce light. In the clayface piece You did a quite a good job with lighting, but You almost didn't employ bounce light at all. You should think how the light bounced from his shoulder interacts with the part of his face covered with shadow.
Implementing bounce light is just a small change, yet it plays a really big role in making an illustration more believable and realistic.

Here is the paintover. I hope it will be visible (it seems images i upload are somehow ivisible for most of viewers). The easiest way to see a difference would be to overlay it on your original and turn this layer on and off.

Hope this would be of any help to You. Best wishes. <3
