At first glance these do look interesting. But they are way too small (and light) for my poor old eyes to make any real sense of them...post them larger please...
What I lack in talent I more than make up for with enthusiasm!

I agree, push your darks more, don't be afraid to go really dark where it's needed...push those pencils into the paper!
Your eyes are not lining up correctly, especially on the first one. Are you drawing light lines across the face to place everything? Try doing that if not already and simply work on your proportions.
Nice work!

Well, This is the thing. You got drawing skills. And they will improve. Perhaps it is time to starting painting. Your drawing and painting skills will improve together.
Perfection is what drives an artist.
The inability to achieve perfection is what creates a work of art.

I agree with Halleck and Beautifulbay about the values. Try more solid black negative space to keep the eye moving. Also, try this site for all your human proportional needs:


You've got a good hand and the desire . . . the rest is learning and, of course, practice!! Keep it up!

really good start - potential there for sure.
first one, turn head more instead of face on for more interest, shade cheeks heavier so check bone more prominent, reduce mascara look for more naturalness, reduce size(width) of neck
second one, eyes are cockeyed, again try turn head as one would in a portrait. don't know what is coming off neck, if a scarf not distinct enough so now is a distraction or artifact
third is the best because it is suggestive and adds interest by mystery.
good luck
