good to have you posting art again. I do wish you'd post a bit more during semester instead of one big dump at the end and then nothing for 5 months.
Chipping in my p about the shape-shading thingy: If you focus on one shadow like ben suggested try to forget that it is actually the shadow at the bottom of your hand; try to forget it's supposed to be part of a hand alltogether, that way you can focus on solely the shape.
I like face-print one and the one-line headphones; I think you could in general have some darker darks on the ones with tone.

Thanks for all of the feedback guys, I'll store it all for future works, really appreciate it.
Also, Qbles, I know, it probably would be better to upload it little by little, but the problem is that my scanner wasn't able to capture my sketchbook drawings well at all, and I didn't have a camera with me at school. Even if my scanner worked for the sketchbook, it still wouldn't allow me to capture my non-sketchbook pieces, as all of those are way too big.

Continuing on, this is only number 15 of 64 sketchbook pieces. I think when I started drawing, I still did fall into that trap of drawing what I think I saw instead of what I actually saw. However, I feel that in my later pieces I was able to break away from that. My teachers had us do a lot of blind contour to start breaking away from that mold, and I think I really did get away from it eventually.
