I think your basic anatomy is pretty solid actually. What you need in your sketches is more organic lines. In your legs and arms especially, your lines are way too generic and straight. The human forms have actually a lot of bumps and unevenness unlike what you depict in your anatomical sketches.

Thanks for the advice Axel. I definitely see what you mean bout my line work, I have a weird need to simplify forms even when it's counterproductive to the drawing I'm working on. I should break, or at least temper, the habit before I get stuck in a rut.
Sorry no serious studies still. I'm being lazy now that I have a bit of a holiday break. I decided to scan some more of my classroom doodles that I found from last week though. Don't give up on me everyone, I'll try harder to not suck!
Love your style, it's very expressive and fun. Have you ever thought about doing animation?
Also, I've noticed you keep using DIN A4 sheets. Maybe it would be good practice for you to try and draw bigger every now and then :]
And if you're trying to get a more realistic look, there's hardly a better practice than drawing from life. Doing portraits and sketches of people on the train works for me ^^
