They're pretty nifty. I don't know much about art and drawing and stuff... BUT I can say that the mustache on Luigi Pirate looks kind of wrong somehow.
I think you are applying too much detail on things that dont have too much to begin with. Like, what are these? Cartoons, or serious portraits? Are they supposed to be 2D or 3D? Why are you ONLY using Mario characters as your means of creation? Why not try portraits of real people and see how that works? Right now, I think you lack basic levels of facial anatomy, like the thirds of face proportions, ear structure, mouth structure, etc. I would start small with studies of anatomy bits MINUS going head long into detail, then begin constructing a good face using a reference. If cartooning is your goal, abandon detail. Cartoons (manga or whatever) work best at simplifying and losing detail. Basically, practice moar. Post more, do more; I know its annoying to work really hard on something and have some one say 'do more,' but that's really the point. You should never work on something and say 'well that's that.' Always look at it and say, 'cool, now what can I do to top this?'
Sketch some people actually sitting in front of you. It doesn't have to be perfect, just quick sketches. Using real world people will really help you in understanding how skin texture and hair looks and helping in getting perfect proportions. =]
The ideal way to work is with a perfect proportions first and understanding that, then adding characters to that, rather than starting with characters and then working on proportions. =]
