Hello there, welcome to CA. Those skull studies you've got going there are pretty nice, keep working with various reference material.
As for form, which I myself tend to have some problems with, I believe the best way to work on that is to do some monochrome / black and white studies from reference and tests on how lighting affects a surface's values when pointed from different directions. Color studying should be taken on it's own merits entirely, and the knowledge of the two ought to be mixed together later on. Or, well, that's how I've understood.
Take a gander through some sketchbooks in here, plenty of them include lots of helpful insight on values and form, as well as any subject that you may find relevant.

I made an "illustration" for a story in my school, it was a work for language, I had to create a story, but the story was so bad I knew I wasn't going to get a good mark so I added this draw to the front page, I hope the teacher will give me a good mark u.U

Hello! Nice skull studies, they show a lot of character. For your question about form, aside from what Turisas has mentioned, I found this video pretty helpful for understanding it more https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tsdkhQis34U
And regarding your last post, I do that too , I find that it does help lessen the blow of a bad grade sometimes

Oh, I love this old trick, adding some art to a lazy essay to fool the teacher I think we all do this every once in a while. Your sketchbook is interesting so far. I'm not very good, but i'd also maybe suggest studying edges to add more form.

yea, it adds more interest than just print some picture from google images.
Thanks for the advice on studying edges.
I realized that my "paint" was too ameteur for some feedback becouse i literally have to work on everything D:
