I think the best thing you can do now is using references to improve. Maybe use some places like posemaniacs.com and other ressource sites for artist (or use dA's stockpoto ressource). Personally I like to pick some photos (2-5) from there and just try to draw exactly what I see. Poses, humans, animals, landscapes, whatever you want to do.
I also like to do this: doodle a full a4 page a day. Just draw until you have no space left on that piece of paper. Continue doing so for a month straight. In the end you will easier see the progress of your work.
I hope that I could help you a little with that
Ah, yes! People have been telling me to use references, so I guess I'm off to look at references more often! And I have been doodling. I have fun more with doodling with colored pens than regular pencil. I figure maybe that's a good thing?
I guess the best advice is to look, draw what you see, and keep drawing!
