That camera made your works no justice! Sweet to see you got hold of a scanner mate.
I think you need to think abit on your lightning. Your shading looks pretty good, but it doesn't explain that much about the shapes. It looks like you're starting to set lightsources and make shadows accordingly, but I think you can push it even further.
Also, think about "cutting" lines. Overlaying shapes in lineart. I'm not sure how to explain this due to my crappy english, but you could look at some comic book inks. Think about the parts that's closest to the viewer and how professionals show it with only lineweight and putting lines on top of eachother. (ask me and I'll get some examples)
Can't seem to find any great examples right now, I'm not fit for googling at this moment :/
Howev. tried to show what I meant in an old michelangelo sketch. Notice how he places parts closer to the viewer on top on things further away, and how the lines are "cutting". I'm fairly sure it's called overlapping or overlaying shapes in english but yeah. I think you get the point.
As for now you seem to be doing this, letting some lines be on top of others. But you need to be more consequent while doing this. It's not needed on every picture drawn, but it's necessary to know how it works.
Apologizes for not making myself clear even when posting again, I'm ill for the moment.

Reason: I even forgot the example. Duh.
Damn didn't thought that i still have this issue. Two Artteachers explained me the same with the "cutting_lines" to make things more spatial. (dunno if its the right word) Big THX for u, i try to consider this next time! I hope i get it in this WIP:
From school, without ref, the original is bigger, i hope i am patience enough to draw the knight who gets attacked by the ork.
