Real talent. The 3/4 is the best one. In the last one, study an ear. Study the construction of the ear, that will help you draw one.

All three show talent.

I like them all the second is my favourite with the hand, great hand, it looks a little disembodied but, most people avoid hands altogether.

A tip if I may, try to draw the hair as a shaded area not strands, areas of light and dark, it will give the picture more depth.

I like the eyes in the first pic, very nice work!!!

The 2nd one is my fav too. The eyes and the hand are amazing!
I agree with BLR on the ear thing, but other than that they're all great!

I think those are really good. I am an art teacher. If you, or anyone, wants to improve their artwork, I would recommend the book Drawing on the Right side of the Brain by betty edwards. There are some great exercises in there. Its good for "students" of any skill level. The suggestions really improve realism. There are a few common minor mistakes that I see hints of in the drawings, that are specifically addressed, such as proportions, and shading. One thing that I see in the first and third pics more than the 2nd, is the tendency to draw "an eye", maybe not the specific one you are looking at. You'll understand if you look up the book, the library would probably have it. KEEP DRAWING!!

Thanks for all the advice and for the book suggestion, I'll definitely look it up, it is difficult for me to not make them look all cartoony like the 3rd picture (I was practicing expressions like the biting lip and creased forehead lol) hard stuff!!! you can tell that I did the 3rd one just out of my head, the second and 1st I had pictures to look at and interpret in my own way. I am definitely going to take a few art classes when I go to college in the spring of next year!

I have my B.A. in Art.

Job wise not so good, however, the experience of being part of a exhibition, and learning from real artists, Reinhard Reitzenstein and Evergon and more was so precious, I will never regret the monies I paid, I was better at painting,conceptual installations rather than drawing portraits, my worst skill I would guess, actually we never did any in school,thankfully.

So definitely keep it up, and try shading, hold you pencil like an eraser and use the sides etc. Go wild!
