First off, you don't have the eyes or the mindset just yet. A successful drawing is characterized by the likeness of the object in real life. To do this you A) have to copy the values correctly, not the line. Things in real life are made of value..line is not present.
I think you don't view the things you draw in 3-Dimensions. This was my biggest problem. The way I got over it is to draw a lot of rectangles, spheres, cones and shade them accordingly. If you can get your hands on a Bridgeman book it would benefit you greatly. He teaches the method I'm talking about.
What I'm saying right now is not to discourage you but I definitely think you need to learn to think in 3-Dimensions. This means to consciously keep your mind focused on thinking of "why-it-looks-the-way-it-looks". It's a PAIN at first...seriously a pain but it grows less and less and it just makes sense.
I definitely think you have an eye for illustration but not enough skill yet. Congradulations, you're ahead of millions already haha. You're one of the select few given a talent. Hope to see you improve.
hey recent ones are lookin cool ...however i would recommend studying the features and planes of the face to see how they sit on the head...for eg the shape of an eye is not like an almond etc.... basically thinking in terms of 3d....this will give more depth to your heads from imagination....right now they seem pretty flat ... nice attempts though ...hope to see some studies from you .. keep going

The vektor atuff is where you are strongest, so you should concentrate on sketching humans and environments with your pencil first. Get the basics right. Go to some life-drawing classes for example.
The tree is lovely, though!
