Yea CA is a very tough crowd to please
It is good to see that you are working hard on your pencil drawings- keep it up.
It looks like most of your drawings are from imagination, try doing some more life drawing. Drawing people on the bus/train, visit a museum etc.
Very nice work with detail! Keep it up!
You have a very good handle on all of the important aspects of art, so far--anatomy, value, symmetry, imaginative, realistic, etc. My advice to you to improve upon your people-drawing skills (since that seems to be your primary interest, like myself) would be to fill up entire pages of a specific body part until you feel really comfortable. You've already started to do this with hands, and it shows. Drill yourself on whatever you find yourself having the hardest time drawing...noses, legs, lips, WHATEVER.
Really nice start, so far. I don't see any flaws that practice will not fix.

I agree with what Tobuoi said, in that practicing will improve your current "flaws" in art. I know that doing studies can be a pain... believe me I share the same feelings but just trying to do them is a start, even if you don't do that many to begin with. I'm going to try to do one a day - this doesn't sound much, but its more than what I am doing now, so maybe doing something like that could help you too. Maybe just thinking of it from a different angle, such as that for every study you do, you are one less drawing away from learning how to draw whatever it is you're studying. Although, I can see that you are working really hard, and the hard work you are putting in is really starting to shine through in your work! Also, focusing on your weaknesses and destroying them will help too, and bring you the satisfaction of being able to do something you previously found difficult.
Keep up the hard work, it's definately paying off and good luck!
Oh! And feel free to take all the cheese you want from my fridge! I'm not to keen on it myself
