    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.

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

    Yes. Photographs lie. You'll be able to use them when you have experience with life drawing, but for now don't copy photos.

    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".

    One thing you could do is measure the relationships between features, instead of guessing them.

    A street scene somewhere in the east continent of the focco home world.

    There is nothing inherently wrong with doodles.

    If you want to stop doodling and draw systematically, all you need is sit and draw, well, systematically. :)
