Hello, I would back off the pencil, it looks like you got a choke hold on it, I am going to guess by the line work that you have the pencil griped at almost the very tip, also sharpen the pencil or you tend to loose control. The dull pencil my also be caused by the death grip you have , you will not have to sharpen as often if you loosen up and back off the tip. I could be wrong, I am mainly talking about the head studies.
Practice drawing the details. Draw what you see, looks like you are drawing what you think you see (IE Eyelashes do not go all the way around the bottom of an eye, and are very faint there). Draw from observation and trust your gut, dont correct things because of preconceved notions of what something looks like, draw what it looks like, loosen up a bit and have fun.
