You've got some interesting stuff here, Metal. (Kudos for all the life sketches!) My suggestion would be work on the basic some with your figures/faces especially - Get the Bridgeman books to help you learn anatomy (Loomis is also good) and I've also been really loving Hogarth's stuff lately, too. (He's really easy to understand.. I use him to help me translate some of Bridgeman's stuff.) They'll help you understand how the various parts of the figure work together and they'll help you get a better feeling of 'motion' in your figures. (Stiffness is something I'm working on, too. It's hard!)
Watch your perspectives with your still life pieces (e.g. the soda can top is different than the base it sits on) and your proportions (your facial proportions/figures are lacking some structure and have some wonky proportions in some places). You seem to have a good foundations going for you (the motorcycle looks pretty good and your environments aren't too shabby either) so now it's just down to getting a better understanding of how things work together and lots of practice!
Keep it up! ^_^
