Hey Nice rendering technique! It has potential for really... realistic things.
But it looks like you should focus more on just line drawing while learning anatomy.
From the looks of your drawings it looks like you press hard on your pencil and move your hand slowly and carefully while drawing.Try to draw fast with big loose flowing lines. That way you'll get rid of the stiffness some of your drawing have.
And you'll also be able to do more studies in less time. Remember that their purpose is to teach you the construction of things, so you understand how they work and later, be able to analyze what you see or imagine when drawing. And in that regard they can even be done as a few squiggly lines, as long as they show the accurate range of motion of the elbow joint for instance, or the position of the biceps in relation to the humerus.
Also, when rendering, try to make the contour work with the inside of the form. Make your contour as light as the value it is next to, or make the value as dark as the contour it's next to. Try doing this is some areas of your drawings and see what happens. You could leave the outer contour at the places it touches parts that are lit, while unifying it with the shadow values on the other side of the figure.
Or if you want to keep your contour throughout try playing a bit more with lineweight, thickening the line around areas that are shadowed, like you did in some parts of your "dinner" character.
Keep having fun

Wow thanks Windmaker,
How did you know I draw like that? You really helped me with your advice, thanks so much. You're not spying on me, are you? I'm going to try out some of the stuff now

Here's another update.
For my education we had to make a game that is quite similar to the classic Asteroids game. The spaceship that I posted earlier in my sketchbook is the same as this spaceship.
The story and concept behind this game are a bit different then the original concept of Asteroids. In this game (which isn't completely finished) you're playing some kind of Spacepolice in the future. Your job is to collect the water barrels that have launched into outer space in the past because of the danger of the rising sea level in those days. Also chemical waste has been launched into outer space. These barrels you'll have to destroy because they are polluting the galaxy. For shooting the chemical waste barrels you will get points and for collecting the water barrels you will get points either. But for shooting the water barrels you'll loose points and for collecting the chemical waste barrels your ship will get damaged.
'nough talk, here are some screens...

Here's another update...
3 Characters that I made for a game. (school project)
The middle one, Tommy, is the playable character.
I also included the texture that I made for the main character, Tommy
Hope you like it, feel free to give me some advice whenever you want to...

i'd like to see more of your graffiti. The one you've made in the last image in post #1 (on the guys shirt) ..it looks really insane. Your 3d moddeling can go places and your values are good.
I can't tell if you smudge or not (not a big fan of the smudge i must say)
good start to a sb. keep up that drawing

Your shading is so smooth. Your faces need work =( The nudie lady in the first post, her neck is far too small for her body, and her face is too skinny. The body of it looks great though. I'd like to see more pencil drawings from you =)

Thanks for the compliments and critz,
Heyy Ped454, Yeah at first I did that indeed. But in the texture in my last post I tried not to. I'm pretty happy with the result of that texture although it can still be a lot better.
Heyy 28chelseaslater, I ruined the face in that drawing. I'm not happy with it either. (should have posted that drawing with a big black box over the head hehe). check back later and you might see more pencil drawings
