Its a cool start, man.
my only suggestions would be to make sure you pencils don't get to blurry looking. I usually prefer the grainy effect of the pencil on paper to the smeared look (purely my prefernce tho) and also maybe watch your perspective lines to make sure they are right.
Other than that, great start and good luck with it!

Thanks for the reply by this do you mean to use cross hatch shading? I have actually never tried the technique before, but I have been looking through some drawings which use it and it causes great texture there are some really realistic drawings out there using this technique.

Not necessarily crosshatching as such. More using the texture of paper combined with the grain of the pencil. Works really well with soft leads and black pencils. Nice effect for shading.

I have been practicing crosshatching and perspective lately. Here is an image I am currently working on it's from memory I just want to make sure the perspective is ok so far. I've been looking at it so long I can't tell.
So please crit all you can in this image thanks:P

Your lines are too sloppy. You are "chicken scratching" them, and your hatchwork looks uneven and sloppy as well.

The key is to learn to make clean lines. Not 6 sketchy lines to draw 1. Just 1 line from point 'a' to point 'b'...

You have to be able to draw straight, even lines, before you can even consider getting into hatchwork. After all, hatchwork is using parallel lines to intimate darker values and textures. If your lines aren't clean, straight, and parallel, you just end up with as much an indistinct mess as if you simply shaded with the side of your pencil ~ which also works, if your eye-hand coordination are sufficiently trained to control the shading...

It is this technical hand control that is tripping you up. You need to really work on that, in order for anything else to develop properly.
