Your drawings have a good start, and the first one is quite good for a profile. However, and forgive my bluntness, but they are rather amateurish. That's not a bad thing, though (mine from just a couple years ago would be put to shame next to yours!); you just need a bit of practice.
I'd suggest working from photographs; I like magazines because they present different positions to work from rather than the convention sideways or three-quarters view. Also, draw what you SEE. Sometimes your brain will try to argue with what it sees--you'll think you're drawing something else than what's there. If and when that happens, it works to hold the picture and your drawing upside down to compare them. Look at them from every angle to ascertain how it is.
I'd also suggests art lessons--I've been taking lessons for nearly a year and in that time I've advanced way farther than I ever thought I could. Art books are very helpful as well--and the local library is a wonderful source for ordering books if you can't find them.
If this doesn't make sense, sorry...what I know and what I write usually tend to be kinda different...now I'm rambling, so enough.
