In the first image, something bugs me about the shoulder. I think we should be seeing more of the right shoulder than we do; it's not usually that recessed unless you're seeing the figure in a more pronounced 3/4 view.
Also, I think the arm touching the monster may be a bit too long. Or, it could be part of the shoulder issue. It's hard to tell.
Other than that, though, you seem to have a nice thing going. The hands on the holograph monster are great. I'd like to see that image once you've finished it. Keep it up!
Welcome the sketchbook section. One step up. First I'll say is to Do some anatomy studies. And also draw some portraits using lines to measure up and makesure everything is in its correct place.

Here ya go.
Over the last few days I realized that I'm really good at doing figures from the front or side, but the rear view with all the back muscles is still a mystery to me. I'm going to skew my sketch selection in that direction for alittle while until it all just clicks into place.
Can't wait for my first assignment.

First, I think you should post some more of your personal sketchbook and painted stuff rather than just the stuff from Slash's assignment. People will be more interested in that.
As far as your pose maniacs goes, in your 2minutes a lot of the torsos are much too long. I know its hard to measure perfectly in 2minutes but getting your eyes accustomed to making use of negative shapes and alignment lines will speed you up as well as make your proportions more accurate. And your 20minutes there are some long torso events there too but not as often as the 2minutes, but an issue that is consistent is the long neck.
Also a quick suggestion for the 20minute, the values you lay in are really blurry and don't really show form, and the light source isn't clearly defined. What is it you are trying to learn by doing the value like that? Already the pose maniac images themselves can be difficult to judge the light source, but if you are enjoying the value I would pick a value for the canvas itself, sketch on it then use the canvas like the midtone and add the darkest darks and lightest lights. It will describe the form much better and maybe help you learn more? Just a suggestion, goodluck man.
Just have fun.
