I've realized that my traditional art skills are not to par to what I wanted to be at this point. In fact, it's been slowly dying due to lack of practice in the past couple of years.
SO I've decided to blow away the dust that's been collecting on my art instruction books and finally go through them. Restarting from square one. Everyday for a few hrs a day. The studies above were done with tidbits from the first few pages of "Figure Drawing: Design and Invention" by Michael Hampton and "Bridgeman's Completel Guide to Drawing from Life".
More to come! :D
