Your work is unique, in that it looks both digital and done in oils or acrylics in other places. I haven't seen much work like this, if any. Unfortunately I have no crits/comments at all, that would be at all beneficial to you.

It looks like you've tried to memorize the muscles to the human figure, but are having difficulty getting them to flow and look operational. I notice this thing in a lot of them where the upper arm/shoulder/chest area looks too connected. I can't imagine a lot of them being able to lift their arms above their heads without tearing some of their muscles in half. I notice this most in images such as the girl in the last one - look at the arm she has hanging by her side, it seems connected to her torso far too low over far too much space. It's difficult to imagine her lifting it like the other one.
Also with the boxer on the bottom, same deal. Another thing I notice is your proportions seem to get a bit off when you draw the human figure at various angles - arms especially seem to get hit pretty hard with this. The arm the girl in the last one is raising seems very small, a fair bit smaller than it should be. I know it's "farther away" than the other one, but only by a small amount, not enough to make it look that small in comparison to the body. The image below the one with the boxers also does something weird with the arms...I can see the muscles and they look basically correct, but something about their portrayed proportions makes it almost look like his arm is broken.
Your good with your paints, the environments and general paintings are really pretty impressive. Your colors, especially - and the style as was mentioned. I'd maybe take a step back from that, though, and try some linework to get your human figure down some more. I'd say the basic portrayal and proportions of it are much more important than all the detailed muscle. In your average human, the muscles aren't ever going to be showing to that degree anyway, or they'll be covered up with clothing. Hence, why your paintings tend to work so well.
Keep going, and don't be afraid to step out of your happy space every so often. Cheers for now.

Grandmassa: thanks, yep many problems with that painting but it's probably easier to start a new one than fixing it.
Two listen: Thanks for the comment, yep my anatomy and drawing skills suck but i started working on them!
AmontilladoAg: thanks, that one was done for my country's independance day!
Kristo Novo, maeshanne, Fumble, Munin Raven: thanks,
Anyway I started drawing and learning anatomy again. I've been copying bridgman with pencils and photos in photoshop. Most of my time was spent on this piece. Started it from scratch around 3 times and and after 5 hours of work repainted most of it. It's still a messy sketch I don't know why but working on this painting has been really frustrating. Finally I feel like I'm getting somewhere but there's is still alot of work ahead.

I love the colors that you use, and the style is awesome. Watch out for those pesky perspective things on some pieces. And, like has been pointed out, a lot of your figures don't seem to flow. But, you're doing great! And I love your imagination.
