Such a high level of discrimination in all areas - tone, texture, form, anatomy.  Moreover, it's tight (detailed) where it needs to be, loose where details don't matter.

Somehow I ended up with this kind of style: more sketchy look. I, for some reason, don't like when the drawing is completely polished like a photo....it loses its appeal as a drawing. Plus, I'm impatient and don't want to spend 40-80 hours on layering my drawings (like some people teach you on the internet with multiple pencils) so I go for charcoal ;)

Me too.  But your ability to focus the detail is excellent.  You get the best of both worlds. 
Good observations shows that this is the way the eye works.  We can hold only one thing in focus - everything else is then out of focus in relation to it. This focal area coincides ( or should coincide) with the center of interest in a composition.  Detail, like high tonal contrast, is a way to mark the center of interest - to lead the viewer's eye to it - to help him "read" the composition.

So true. That's why the most stunning photos are also with the blurred background ;) We need to guide a viewer :)

Older people are way more interesting and fun to draw. Great stuff.
