    Do they teach perspective at your school? Have they got a life drawing class?

    Having access to such classes isn't bad, on the contrary it is very useful. It's that your sketches show very wobbly perspective and poor line quality and completely skewed construction... I was wondering whether you had any classes in the matter. Now I am rather puzzled: why is your drawing quality like that if you did go through perspective and life drawing classes. :/

    So far you greatest problems are structure and anatomy. Line quality can be improved simply with enough practice, but to improve structure and anatomy you have to do a lot of work aimed at improving them. If this is supposed to be final work, and you don't have time to study structural drawing for half a year, then about the only thing you can do is get someone to pose for you. Draw from life and take reference photos for later. You still need to rely heavily on reference, and check things thoroughly with perspective plots and anatomy studies, to pull this off.

    The anatomy is still off, if in doubt shoot reference if you can or use a mirror.
    For me your rough sketches are too close to your source material (it still looks like a tribal warrior)
    Admittedly it's hard to comment on them as they are so small but expand your reference to buildings or carvings rather than just people. Anything with a strong Aztec feel/iconography.
    That way you can work that feel into technology/weapons armour etc.
