    hey nice work. im no expert or anything( if you want one go check out hideyoshi, that guys very impressive) your gestures and form look fine, the shading is what needs some tweakin.

    thanks for stopping by my sketchbook! you've got nice stuff going on, lots of faces. i'd say you could benefit from concentrating on the planes and structure of the face even more. some of the noses seem symbolic while some others look pretty realistic - are those pics from the same time?
    can't say much more constructive for now - show us more!

    some faces need better proportions...
    this will come better with practice...
    keep working and it will come nicely!

    Hey! Ok, so let's see...
    thescala made a good remark already, you could try to improve your shading. But that is just one of many things you could practice. You're already doing great by working from reference - some sketches are looking pretty accurate also!
    It's always a matter of practice, you need to hang in there and constantly draw. It simply needs time. Try loosening up some of your lines maybe, keep it sketchy in the beginning. But try to draw with confident lines rather than scribbly ones. Basic routines like drawing many parallel lines and circles are good practice as well and will make your strokes more fluid.

    hey there, Hideyoshi basicly said it. It seems to me like you are going very dar very fast with some of your work, rather try to start off loose and then gradually work more contrast into your art, just a thought ^^

    Keep up the work, you are doing good.

    Cheers
