Not bad, but why you don't remove the unnecessary layers? It doesn't make the result look more professional and stuff, it's just creates a mess.

Because when something's been too cleaned up, it looks too clinical. I like sketchlines in. Makes it look more organic.

I'm still under the impression I can't draw all that well. I dunno if it's the lack of practise, diminished motivation or limits I put on myself but I think I just can't accomplish much. Therefore I present another Terra to demonstrate this lack of skill.

The end.
(She now has two stripes along her tail rather than just one I used to draw. I think she's probably some skunk like alien)

I think you may be under impression that you can't draw well because of that organic sketches you make.
Thing is, I saw very few cleaned linearts from you, even the one above is still a sketch, although a cleaned one. I think that that is your problem.
You don't polish your work enough.
I know that, to you, cleaned ones may look clinical. And your pictures will look clinical if you're gonna leave helping lines and strokes from the sketching phase.
You need to cover your sketches with lineart layer, maybe even annother sketchy one but cleaner and thinner that the previous layer. Then you should work out what in your opinion is missing. Details, like folds on the clothes, muscle lines, body folds, patterns on the clother et cetera. How eyes, brows, mouth looks like under certain expressions. And then make a final lineart wich you may color or not, but at least work with shadow on the character. It adds life, makes less clinical.

I've posted an example tutorial of how I do a single frame, I hope it'll help you with your learning process somehow.
