You're doing good.
Try laying down a thin brown wash over the drawing first so that you're not left with those annoying white spaces.
Your drawing may have to be a little darker for this so you don't loose it. Don't be afraid to make it a little messy. Paint is messy, it's one of its finest features.

I just got started doing acrylics myself and am struggling, its a tough medium after focusing on just drawing and digital paintings. Anyways they look like you're off to a good start though, keep 'em coming!

Traditional ways are always harder than computer based. Its all manual with traditional.
I did a project on studying acrylics and I seemed to get too frustrated with it. My paintings werent as polished as these so I guess they are better ^^ Keep em coming.
If you find you are too restricted when it comes to blending and the drying times, try oil paints.
