    It's clearly not up to the caliber of the many artists here. How would I get better? Any specific advices to each piece specifically?

    For now, study anatomy and proportions and do gesture drawings to get rid of the stiff look of your poses.

    Your lighting also needs some work, but I'd recommend you first work on your drawing skills, then your painting skills. You're on the right track, but there's a long road still ahead.

    What Lhune says. You just need more general practice. Read these forums for general advice given to other beginners, too.

    Being one of these people here who get told to study anatomy every single time I post something (lol), I can tell you that for a start Andrew Loomis ( http://www.fineart.sk/?cat=1 ) is very helpful, especially with stick figures and a general idea of proportions.
    For muscles I am currently sitting over George Bridgman, I find it very useful to get the dynamics into my head.
