Tip-wise my biggest thing is not to overwork your drawing. I really love the un-blended pieces but it's so hard for me not to blend it all together! I've had quite a few pieces that have looked great until I start blending then it just looks wrong.
So in a nutshell-learn to walk away and say it's done!
But I think that for not doing that much with charcoal you're work is great...and will keep getting better and better as you go.
