studies are looking better.
a word on hogarth studies. He tends to make his anatomy very 'bubbly'
If you're going to study anatomy from drawings, I'd suggest really switching up your source material so you can get a wide range of information, and choose who does what things best. Hogarth usually has really good information on organic form. beware of symmetrical curves ( ) <-like that. they generally don't happen in organic forms in real life.
loomis and bridgeman aand villpu other popular artists with 'blah blah how to draw human figure books' and they all have good information and individual shortcomings.
Although it is good to study how other people are seeing things, It's also important to see for yourself.
don't be afraid to spend lots of time on your studies, and finish them (don't balk out on the feet!)
something else I'm noticing, is you're squishing information onto the page. Don't squish, just draw off the page and learn how to size it properly next time.

on your graphic style demon thing:
try to think more about the form in lightsource. I'm pretty sure that the effect you are shooting for 'a la hellboy' has the shadows in black, and then the parts in light in color. you have inconsistent lightsources, and blacks just thrown around everywhere. Try to break down the form into large shapes of light and shadow keeping in mind your light source.
on the orc faces:
you are a nerd. I know nothing about wow.
when I am drawing things on the computer, what I will usually do is after the initial planning [line drawing] I will put down [on a new layer] a 50% grey layer set to multiply [so you can keep your lines] then work on a new layer on top of that to carve out the lights and darks. If you're starting without line, I'd just lay down a 50% grey before you even start. it helps speed things up, and will allow for a better value range. Also, environments are usually more interesting in a horizontal format [because we see in horizontal format. 16:9 is usually reall good [because we've been conditioned by movies at that ratio]. I find working in a square to be very challenging compositionally.
now I'm not sure if this was intentional [and please forgive me!] but the branch thing in the lower left is like a penis, and the hole in the tree thing is like a vagina. maybe i'm just being a perv.

Looking better and better by each post!
Try to find a book on anatomy and a bunch of bodybuilder mags, use the mags as reference to draw from. Keep the anatomybook at hand to give you some help with how the muscles connect etc. I do this all the time, and then i just disregard the whole thing and make everything bigger=)
