So here is the start of my sketchbook. Decided to do this to improve my art in 2011. I will hopefully be updating this daily.

best advice for that hand would be to do some lower arm and hand studies. Your wrist connections are kinda vague. It's not enough to say it connects to the arm towards the end of the skinny side. It will help a lot.
Also when doing clothes remember that clothes have their own structure- seams and connections. A sleeve doesn't connect to the same place an arm does- the shoulder goes past the arm, the sleeve connects lower down on the torso- just google jackets and take a look at the construction.
You've got a pretty good foundation right now- it's time to get out the anatomy books and start refining your knowledge of the little connecty bits and structure, and wrangle in your line quality.
Your first draft doesn't need to be clean and shiny (mine certainly aren't)- but once you've worked out the logistics it helps to create a new layer and refine your lines.
Hey nice start to a sketchbook. Only thing I can say is keep practicing anatomy and try out some life studies. I find the best anatomy books are Bridgemans collection or Hogarth's.
Sorry for not updating lately. I have been rather sick for the past few days. I have been doing some pen and paper hand studies and such while in bed but without a camera or scanner I can't upload them. Here is some of the things I have done on the computer in the past few days.
Done for entertainment. Decided to make a champion suggestion for league of legends XD.

Been a while again. At some point I should stop being lazy and photograph my sketchbooks to put up here. I do most of my life drawings in there. Here is just a bunch of images I have done. Big update. Some have been posted elsewhere.
