Cheers for resizing the images, much easier to see!
You seem to have a good imagination, I would definitely recommend that you attend life drawing sessions however. Your anatomy is better than most at your stage but you have much to improve on. Definitely keep updating the sketchbook, I would love to see your future progression!

Start simple with your still lifes, try fruit, or really basic shapes. Simple then more complex then more complex. Also try a mix of grey scale and color so you can learn both, jumping in to color before understanding grey scale can end up hurting you.
Cool sketches Definitely keep those up while you try to get the handle of the tablet.
If you're using photoshop, i'd suggest checking out Ctrl+Paint It's got a lot of nice things to really understand the program and the benefits of digital vs traditional. Also download his basic brushes. (very simple to make but I can't remember at the moment~)
I'd agree with Diarum, try starting off a painting as a greyscale then apply color over top.
Hello sketchbook buddy! Not a bad start! Hope you stick to it! Thats the way to get a "mentor"/ knowledgeable friends on here. Also be sure to browse sketchbooks and critique others usually they will return the favor and visit yours and critique you! Also you said u need somethings to help to challenge you, have you looked on the first page =p TEEN CHALLENGE =D or the daily sketch group etc are good!
