Great stuff, dude! It's cool to see you start a sketchbook here.
You do characters very well, but I think one sure-fire way to level them up would be sharpen up some of the trickier forms; for instance, a lot of your knees and chests and elbows and jawlines and such are getting a little bit rounded and smooshy, as though you're not entirely sure of the shapes, and it's making the figures look slightly rubbery.
I also think paying a little more attention to your proportions would be beneficial; some of your legs are looking wonky. And don't underestimate the importance of the form of the ribcage - it's the largest form on the body, but it's almost invisible on your shirtless figures.
Obviously, the solution to all of that is just moar figure drawing, which we're all always working on for over 9000 hours anyway.
Lol, I know what you mean about hating anything older than a month. I actually tend to hate the stuff I did 5 minutes ago, so you're not so bad off.
That last one is really cool; you're faces are great. I think pushing the rimlight, instead of that top left light, would make more sense with the glow from behind him, but dunno.
Okay, I'm humbled.
I'm sorry, I don't have any useful to say to you, I am just too awed.

Onward and upward! I believe in karma, so let's all help one another! =D
