Colour theory.... as in use less black. Many times shadows are the opposite colour. Eg if your skin tones are a warm, yellow type colour, shadow will probably have a purple tint.
If you piece has a overall warm tone (so red), shadows will be a blue colour.
Pure black shadows don't exist in real life.

Hard edges and soft edges. Sometimes shadows are sharp and well defined, sometimes soft and hazy. Don't use the airbrush tool for all your shadows.

AND...On the positive, your work has improved quite a bit all ready. Well done Sir.
