Those are very good for first attempts. I wouldn't worry about finishing them any farther than you have. At this stage you'll benefit more from doing lots of drawings than from spending a lot of time refining them.

Are you sketching first and then doing the final linework, or just going straight into final lines?

I believe he meant like making a simple crude version of the image. In Photoshop you can do it with a semi transparent layer that you can then draw on top of. Helps you visualise things.
And since, as John said, you should definitely just draw lots and lots without focusing too much on quality, it's a way to draw two images for each idea. Kind of.
You could try it.
Everyone seems to have it, so here's mine

What HellEye said. Photoshop's layer's are great for that. You can sketch it out on one layer, then make that layer transparent and do the clean lines on another layer.
