Since I have much less artistic skill despite being 4 years older than you, I can't really offer a decent critique. However, I will say that your stuff is very good!

Hey! I'm 16 too!
I like your stuff, but if your trying to learn to draw, you should draw.
Put down the tablet, no matter how cool it is, and pick up a sketchbook.
Also it looks like you should work on anatomy. Pick up a good book, not one of the one's that says step 1 do this step 2 this etc. but one that explains the muscles and how they work. It might seem like a bit too much, but it really helps.
Keep it up,
check out my sketchbook

I'm also 16! Your sketches look great, but they're all heads facing to the right. Except for one freaky scary dude with a knife. They look better than what I could draw so I can't really critique them, but some variety would do ya good.

You should do some landscapes. I want to see some landscapes.

The planes of the face are really pretty solid in the sketch in post 3. Mileage is awesome so continue doing all the fun stuff but try and incorporate some real studies into your work ethic as well. Whether they be from photographic reference or anatomy books- take your weakpoint and make it a strong point.
Keep it up!
"A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed

well the faces look solid on the first view but if you look closer you see you can´t look closer because they are all kinda rough.
i can only tell you the comon stuff. get a brunet or a brightman and learn anatomy.
from your curent sketches i can´t exactly see how you are goin with the anatomy.
so i can´t tell you were to improve.
and btw cut that stuff with your age if you want useful critique.
the only thing of importance is your skill. and if you want objective critique you should leave out all unnecessary details.

More doodle, I used SAI for this one

This sketchbook definitely needs some love. Your off to good start man, one crit would be when your doing your still lifes watch for skewing (flip the still life horizontally and see what I mean) but of course more practice will overcome it easily. Its awesome that your doodling, but definitely hit up some study's (sorry if you already are) you have great potential, keep pushing.
