half finish painting how can I bring theses to a more finished piece. So far I layout a rough outline sketch, fill it with a midtones then higlights then shadows, then I start to blend to try and develope value and form. Should I keep doing this and or is there more I should be working on?

help information overload!!
I have offically become a "collector of books". I want to improve, and I think I am just searching for the best way to get me there. I now have all the george bridgman books, hogarths dynamic figures and hands, jack farragasso's mastering figures, the practice and science of drawing, and pdf of loomis books, and drawing on the right side of the brain by betty edwards. There all similar when i comes to the books each one though has a different way of going about creating structure of the figure.
I think alot of it has confused me and it starts to frustrate me a bit. Look what is the best way to set up a figure drawing by using the structural cubes of bridgman, the dynamic barrels and wedges of hogarth, the oval and spheres of loomis, or should I abandon them for the seeing method like betty edwards teaches?
Should I start with the torso first like hogarth says or the head like bridgman does!? Does it even matter?
I find that bridgman structure is good but I am confused when he sets the figure to use the cubes is it just conceptually or does he actually draw the box around the head and fit the skull inside I find that to have a worst result for me.
Jack farragasso tries to relate every line to another which to me makes a messy piece of lines everywhere.
I am mostly familar with hogarth I think because I started with his stuff.
I have yet to fully grasp all the concepts.
I like hogarths values to emphase of form.
But then Bridgman says to use simple tones and not to use more than 3 in a drawing that the outline is more important.
BUt hogarth seems to merge the outlne into values of tone.
The thing is I like them all, for different reasons but I cant seem to merge them all together without making a structural mess. There is just to much.
I guess my questionis how should I study??? lol
Any help is appreciated

So work has consumed most of my time I had to stop taking drawing classes in the city. Anyway I still been drawing a lot, got me some different art stuff from Blicks in NYC. Some toned paper, Copics, and pentel pens. I bought a empty pentel water brush pen think about trying ink wash stuff.

nice progress but you must sketch more, more and more... every next sketch will be better and better so keep going. Try to make more human anatomy sketches and some simply things like cup or bottle
