    Her eye is far too small, her arm comes off as a little thick, and her pelvis seems to be missing. Her chest is also off perspective from the rest of her body, and her neck is rather rigid.
    It's very, very rough in this state...If this is the final quality, I suggest you tighten things up. The lines are very wobbly and uneven. Keep on studying your anatomy.

    Concentrate on learning human form and proportion, everything you've drawn is very flat, shapes only, with little indication you know how the forms turn into the depth of the picture space. Proportion is the size of various body parts in relation to one another and you have some issues there as well.

    There are quite a few books online, many free, that deal with drawing the human form in both repose & action, not just anatomy references, but lessons in construction of poses and forms onto which the anatomy is added as detailing.

    This doesn't look like 'rough lineart'; it looks like trying to jump to the last step without doing construction, or trying to trace a photo without understanding the underlying anatomy.

    Draw all the pieces of the figure at once - this looks like you drew an eye, added hair, then tried to stick a body and face onto it after the fact. That very rarely works, and only if the artist is dead nuts on with their anatomy - we're talking top 10% here.

    I referenced the face,( and no I don't mean tracing by referencing) so I could point out the ethnicity.
    Do you guys think I should just scrap it, I mean I know I still have a really long way to go to actually call myself an artist. I think I should just practice until the day comes inwhich I could make things look like and actual person.

    Thanks guys for your help, I'll try some more untill I get things right. ( i love cA btw)
    p.s: The sketch was way more detailed than the above picture, but it was too dark when I scanned it so I figured to just make a quick lineart version of it and post it on here.

    Your persepctive is way off, and the balance is skewed. You really have no understanding of the underlying anatomy as far as I can tell, and you should take the time to purchase, or look up, anatomy books/references online. (If you're to grab a book, I suggest Anatomy For Artists by Barrington Barber. Very good book.)

    Attached I have a sloppy redline, but it should get my point across. (Anyone feel free to correct me with my own redline.) As someone above mentioned, her eye is much too small, and the facial anatomy, though I'm still a novice myself at it, is somewhat off.

    Wow, It does she's falling off, and when I have the money, I'll be sure to pruchase that book! I think I'm just going to scrap it and just work on the basics for now, then gradually move up.

    You really don't need to purchase an expensive book. As masque linked out, there are lots of free e-books about drawing and illustration. Check them out.

    Your road blocks are about understanding of anatomy. If you want to improve your drawing you need to understand whats going on beneath the form. You need to understand how the skeleton is connected, and proportions at which the human figure is constructed of, the over lay of the muscles on the skeletal frame and how they react when in a certain position when flex and when relaxed.

    The good news your young, start looking at reference, start studying the masters and start trying to understand why they made certain pencil strokes and your drawing ability will improve by leaps and bounds. The actual skill of manual dexterity and controlling line weight is important as well, but none of that matters without the ability to fully comprehend the subject of which you are trying to capture.

    Cheers
    and good luck
