    Well, I'm sure you are aware of this, but your human figures have anatomy problems. Believe me, anatomy took me years to get decent with, so having a good anatomy book and studying which muscle attaches to which bone and where - will help a lot.

    The demon dude (the head drawing with his neck and upper torso visible) lack clarity where his pectoralis major meets the deltoid (they both attach to the humerus bone of course). The arm on the girl whose back is showing is much too short, compared to her head. If you lift your arm streight up, you can see your elbow is well above your head.

    Hope this helps a little - obviously anatomy is a gigantic subject and nothing I could much help you with, even if I spent several hours writing

    Your stuff is really coming along man, your creatures in particular are really cool.

    With digital painting, don't use black to shade. I'm guessing by looking at your images that you use a black at low opacity to get in the darks. This is apparent in the top green monster especially. Try to colour pick a darker shade of the colour your using and blend like that. Lowering the flow, or setting it to pen pressure along with transparency will allow you to achieve smoother gradients with your values/colours.
    Really don't use black at all, use a very dark grey/colour. Save black for the very end when you need to pop out tiny details like pupils. Same with white.
    Also try to avoid the airbrush, use a hardround or speckled brush, and adjust the hardness if necessary.
    Hope that was helpful, thanks for stopping by.
    Peace!

    Some cool ideas here!

    I would recommend to learn the basics by taking "baby steps" instead of "running" right away and coloring with the tablet. It is a great tool, yes, but having a solid foundation in traditional media is important, in my opinion.
    Focus on anatomy studies, and do plenty of gesture drawing, replacing jagged lines for more confident ones.

    It is a long journey, tough at times but quite rewarding, so keep it up!

    I second what luness said. Do tons of studies til your hand bleeds, then go to the hospital, then recycle the path.
