Opheliac's Sketchbook! :B
I'm a loooong time lurker who only recently mustered up the courage to start up a sketchbook, but I'm sure it's a good decision. Well, my name's Ellie, I'm 15 (16 in just over a week!) and I've loved drawing and art since I was a little kid. I also have a passion for writing.
I really love videogames, apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic imagery and indie, punk and folk music as well. When I'm older I'd love to be a concept artist, which is why I want to really work on my art and get better.
So, here goes!

Can only say : Just enjoy ! Draw draw draw and draw. Simple but that is all there is to it. Oh and studying those art books, small and big, reading, watching scrutinizing every detail in all those amazing sci fi movies, draw some more, copy famous paintings as precisely as you possibly can, draw a little bit more and just keep going
Nice start !

The female figures are sketches from photographs, and the other is a painting of my mum's shoe from life.

All done in Photoshop and with photo-references, except a few of the lip sketches.

The very last lip study you did was wonderful. Nice use of highlights.
The first few sketches need a bit of work, but that's not unusual for someone of your age. Couple of years down the road and you'll be better.
With the chair, the perspective is a bit off. Especially with the arm rests pertaining to the bottom edge of the seating area of the chair.
But anyway, keep at it
Edit: Btw, since you said you were a fan of post apocalyptia and video games, I assume you already played the Fallout series. I might be telling you stuff you already know, but spend an afternoon perusing The Fallout 3 Nexus' image archive for post apocalyptic designs and stuff. That's what I did. You can do the same from Oblivion and the TESNexus.

Silwynar: Thanks very much! I will definitely do some more studies. And I'll work harder to make my pencil lines clearer!
Rabbi Satan: Thank you! I'll work harder on perspective and making my sketches more accurate. And thanks a lot for the link! I have played the Fallout games-- Fallout 3 is actually my favourite game (very excited for New Vegas), but I haven't heard of the image archive.

Armour section of mods by downloads and descending, and look through each mod for interesting designs.
I'm also looking forwards to New Vegas, can't wait .

And I recommend painting from life and pictures (paying close attention to colour), understanding and being comfortable with your program, and working big as you can (!).
Rabbi Satan: Thanks, again! It already filtered out the adult content for me (I think it's because I'm not a member, perhaps), but I will start in the armour section. I'm looking forward to looking through it. (And New Vegas is gonna be awesome!)
