Sometimes it's not always the sharper the better, I prefer softer image to sharper image

Izit possible to let us have the original 6mp file without process? Then it maybe able to tell more stories.
Nikon 50mm 1.8 is the value for money lens for you...
I also recommend Tamron 90mm f2.8 macro... It not only can shoot macro at 1:1 magnification, it can also deliver sharp portraiture shots with decent bokeh.
I am NOT a PROfessional photographer and photography is NOT my hobby
i want to see your photo exif + the photo
Cause i dun believe its not sharp. 18-70 so sharp already when i use it.
Firstly your pics look quite ok.
I'd use the Nikon 50mm f1.8 or f1.4. But before you go out and buy a New Lens at the behest of some shopkeeper who just wants to make your bucks ($) try shooting with a tripod and remote shutter release.The cause may be a slight camera shake. Seems like you took the photos at angles not normal to many a photographer. Try the Tripod method. And Oh yes make sure your subjects are still before you press that shutter.
Hope this helps.

Your pics looks good...
So what's the problem?? Seriously, there seems to be some problem with your DI fren...
I agree with sohyp. Best lenses for portrait photography is the 50mm 1.4
and the 85mm 1.8.
I have used the 85mm extensively for wedding protraits and it is superb. Clarity is unbelievable. Both lenses are great inventments, little pricey.
This is a bigger version of the pic. Can save n zoom in than u might get wat my fren means about cannot sharpen on photoshop.

18-70mm is a very sharp and fast lens. I have taken many portraits with this lens.

That photo looks plenty sharp to me. A better lens would give a tad more sharpness, but at a very high cost. Also, since you only have 6mp to work with, you are going to lose resolution when you enlarge the photo too much. Listen to your brothers here when they say your lens is sharp enough. Stop down a little, say f/5.6 or even f/8 and it'll be tack sharp.
f/8 and be there.
