    Do quick studies, return to them later. Learn to work in quick stints. Learn to focus on the process, not the result or the environment.

    And to begin with, learn to skip breakfast. :D

    If a client does not trust you to do proper work based on your portfolio, then they won't be likely to trust you ever. You'll end up wasting your time on the freebies.

    You are not reading the structure at all.

    Study anatomy, so you can recognize what you are seeing in the figure. Without anatomy knowledge, you are missing nearly everything there is to see.

    A large amount of weak, non-point light sources works pretty much the same way as reflexes from lit objects and ambient light.

    The problem with these sketches is that once you have some reference, you seem to toss Loomis' structure out of the window and switch to copying the lines and blots. Which is a wrong method.

    Pay more attention to proportions and structure. Lots more. You cannot hide the poor proportions behind stylish swashes with conte.

    It doesn't really read. You might want to rethink the perspective to avoid a straight top-down view.

    I would not say it is "poor". It requires a deal of work to understand perspective, and his presentation's information density can be a challenge. But it's not "poor", or "not real perspective".
