Agree with Linn, keep the lights light and the darks dark. That mantra helps me a lot I find!
Re drills to practice angles: I have two. a) I learned this one from Matt: I draw a random small shape with (lots of) angles – and then I try to make an exact copy. It’s an ideal doodle and practice in one! Helps with accurately draw negative spaces too. b) I copy a reference photo from Matt’s series. I print it out and use a clear piece of acrylic glass/plexiglass on which I draw the outline/angles (use a non-permanent marker). Now when I make my drawing (on the exact scale of the reference) I check my angles at regular intervals against the plexiglass. I did this a lot when I first started with figure drawing, helped me no end!
