Here are some sketch pieces I drew digitally this year on my tablet. I have zero art training so could really use some critiques and advice
Don't quite know what to make from these. At first glance they seem like doodles from a kid but then some are exceptionally creepy and effective..... bbrrr
But anyway you should be doing life studies instead. Even if you prefer abstracty art, a foundation can help you add more to it. On the other hand focusing on this kind of art will stunt and hurt you.

Thanks, I just recently started drawing again after almost a decade, and I do want to avoid developing a bad style. A lot of the art is abstract as a result, but I ultimately want to develop a style suitable for comic books. Should I focus practicing on anatomy and perspective? I have a very rough sense of anatomy and facial structure as you can tell. Should I be getting references and practice drawing of those? I'm going to do more life studies though as suggested
No you don't. You are going to make MOSTLY mistakes for the next few years to come. Your job is to make them and correct them, not sit there fearful of making mistakes at all.
The key word is "develop". If you can develop a bad style then why can't you keep developing past the bad style and into a better one? Like what... you are only going to get to the point where you suck and then you'll stop? Why?
You aren't going to get any better at them by NOT practicing them. And yes, use reference, because otherwise you're just guessing and not even bothering to check whether you guessed right.
