Am I better than Sycra?

So my last post was how close I was to a KJG level. A lot of people seemed to think I was way over my head because I didn't do any finished pieces. Well this time I attached a finished piece, my DA is jpeg96
Anyway, I'm wondering right now If I have finally surpassed sycra. I've been on his forum for a very long time and I look up to him. I especially love the way he draws faces, he sees to convey so much expression.
Now, putting his style aside, on a technical level, do you think my work is superior to sycras?

There's a new (and cleaner) sticky in town! You can see it at:
TRY TO BE MORE ACTIVE AND GIVE PEOPLE SOME FEEDBACK - many studies are left unreplied, which is a bit sad and can be quite demotivating for the people that try their best to improve, but are left directionless.

Never Gonna Get Good

So, I went out and got myself a tablet finally. Told the sweet looking chubby chick at the best buy that my art skill was only "hang" on the fridge level and I just needed a tablet good enough for doodles. After she told me she didn't work there (who the fuck goes to best buy in a blue shirt?) I found the drawing tablets and choose the cheapest of the only brand they had; Wacom Intuos Draw ($80).
It came with ArtRage lite or something, didn't like it. I downloaded Autodesk Sketchbook Pro and wasn't about to subscribe to that shit so I bought Mischief and...it's pretty amaze-balls. So the tablet works great, drawing program is on point and I bookmarked the reference sites I spotted in the sticky.
But then, I started watching some porn and jerked off. After that I went to Taco Bell. When I got back home I ended up playing some Paladins on Steam. I eventually pulled myself out of the blackhole and started sketching but while I was looking at my references I ended up looking up porn again after looking through /b/ for some more references. I didn't even beat off, I literally just watched porn, trying to wrap my head around drawing those kind of curves and how cool tight skin looks oiled up.
So, I bought a tablet to look at porn and pretend I'm not a pervert, I think...
Anyone else out of their depths when trying to improve?
