Some very nice elements.
For drawing presentation only, gentle use of a sharp, shaped eraser on your penciled in background will help to smooth it out.
Thank you for the kind words.
The drawing was done on my ipad, so the background is just a little fill to see where I am at. At the end it will be blacked out, but this is faster whilst still drawing...

I think you should be proud that you are putting in the work, as you get better each time. On to the constructive part. If you are on your iPad and I assume procreate, you have the distinct advantage of putting your backbones into a layer of their own before adding any details or leaves. If you focus on the backbone so it does not have any doglegs or flats then you will be better off than most beginners including myself. If your eye plays tricks on you from tunnel vision, flip the screen with the backbone layer and it will show flaws more readily. -your mileage may vary.

Sam has some videos on YouTube of his sketches on procreate, there is something to be said about just the flow itself. Starting with light pencil on your first layer, and then going back with a liner on a second layer to define the line more clearly. All of the extra work on proportions does pay off, so that when you get to the next step you can have an aha moment rather than, why does this not fit together. Lessons that I have learned the hard way. Best of luck

Thank you very much. I try my best to improve and sketch at least every other day. Dvd's help too, hahaha.
I actually use autodesk, as I am more familiar with it. I do have procreate, but I just can't do the same things as I do in autodesk. Layers are supereasy indeed and make life alot easier. Saves a ton of tracing paper too.
I'll check out some of the procreate videos, see if I can improve there aswell. Thanks for tips...
