Getting back into art

I'm getting back into art after what has been a while. I used to draw manga as a teen (which is cool if you still do), and tried to move away from that after I finished school. It's been a while (3 years) since I've stuck into drawing since and this is my first page of sketches. Critiques are most welcome. The scanner was not big enough to scan an A3 page, but here are the drawings in the order I drew them (the last is a conceptual sketch of an original character, while the rest are not fanarts but not particular characters):

I am trying to move away from being generic. I hear a lot of advice from professionals about "learning the fundamentals" (such as texture, shading etc) in art and would definitely appreciate guidance on this.
