You are very young but you are doing the things well.The last one has lots of anatomical issues as you said.Nothing as easy as take a book about the animal kingdom and do some studies.It will help you a lot.You can´t pretend to draw a lion if you don´t know how a lion is!!!Try some fresh ideas from your own.I´m sure you´ll have a lot of original characters inside your mind.Look for references if you need them and draw them.Keep having fun while drawing!!!
promising work already Some nice weight of line going in your pencil sketches and despite the anatomical issues the horse is the strongest piece so far of what you have drawn. Its very good.
Words of caution though - the lions are very Disney-esque. And mimicking the lion king style will only get you so far. Go to the zoo and get some photos, or look in a book and try drawing lions and wolves from life first - then try and develop them into your own cartoony style. It will be worth it in the long run.
Flyingfins: Thank you^^ The colored one was a really quick thing, not something I really spent a lot of time on(like 30 min. at maximum) so yeah I see the issues with shading and anatomy and all. I like to think ahead, rather than scrambling at the last minute. Besides if I star drawing now, and get really good by the time I'm out of college, I have a better chance of getting a job that pays well, and I understand that it's hard to get a good job in art since there are so many people out there trying to get one.^^
Camara: Thank you, I see how my lions are rather weak in anatomy, Thanks again, and I will^^
Kovah: Thank you, Yeah, the horse is my best realism attempt so far, I still have to work on my anatomy I see, though I'll keep working at it.

It's a shame I can't see this horse you are so proud of. Your bus sketch is pretty decent. I personally can't stand drawing on the bus, people are not only boring, you are usually stuck staring at the back of heads. And lets face it, the damn bus just doesn't stay still. Hope to see more.
FunkdaFide: Hmm, yeah I have to rescan it so I'll have to do that, I'm just usually to lazy to actually get up and go get it....and I', not really proud of it anymore...that was the begining of the school year =P
So true, but 30 minutes of nothing is torture for me!
Some morestuff for anyone who cares.
A wolf I drew for an annoying friend who wanted it...well I said I'd draw it for him like 3 years ago so I'd probably be annoying about too.
And some poses I did during class today because I was SO bored. I know they aren't really perfectly anatomically correct and everything, but I didn't have any refs or anything and I'm not all that good at drawing humans anyway.
