Make sure you have the full 3d dragon burned in your brain so you can make em do more interesting stuff. Like eating a human.
There are lots of ways to achieve that:
Sculpting is a sure way to learn.
Lots of anatomy studies on the bones and especially the skull, since the head is usually the eyecatcher. (It'll be easier to draw the jaws too)
Studies of 'dragons' in general: Lizards, crocodiles, little thorny devils.
So STUDY! Btw, what university did you enroll at?

very cool creature designs, dude.
your dragons seem to be constantly improving. what I think would help them some more was if you applied some of your animal anatomystudies in them. especially their legs always have a lot of human anatomy shining through.
on some of them you could try to get the shape of the back leg be more in a animalistic form. have another look at the skeleton of a lion or a dog for example to break with your usual forms.
the head designs look great already though.
and I thought this piece http://www.conceptart.org/forums/att...1&d=1228463689 was especially strong.
First image is an interpretation of Mali the shapeshifting Water Gardener from Haroun and the Sea of Stories.
Next is a Sonic the Hedgehog style character called Arrow.
And then some more stuff from a project last semester.
And then some observational studies.
There's a whole lot more on my blog that I'd post here if it wasn't so time consuming to fill in all the categories. =/ So please check out my blog and leave a comment if you have a blog so I can check yours out!
Wooh! I so want to start drawing dragons again. Keep those animal/human studies coming and definitely incorporate the animal anatomy into your dragons, like monotony said. Finish that griffon too and keep the bird legs. That is what a griffon should look like after all.
