Great! Your fast gesture drawings are excellent. You should be proud of those. These feel like they are sitting in space even though they are basically stick figures. And your lines are confident, they do not look like a beginner. Did you start with those gestures? because your proportion looks better then your long format drawing. It shows you will improve in no time, and you will love both. I don’t know what your history is but if this is your second time drawing live. You might be struggling to draw larger then “sight size”. There is a skill I call the proportion skill, where you step back and compare the whole of the object to the whole of another object. This does not come automatically, you have to practice. And if you have only ever drawn small it’s a bit of a shook.
the biggest issue that is jumping out at me, is the way you are shading. Some lines attempt to follow the form and others cut across and break the plane. You have to chose one or the other and be consistent.
