Not bad. I know you are going for a cell shaded look so the flat colors are OK. The biggest problem I see is the static poses. The shoulders and hips are all straight across. I think a great reference book to look into drawing comic style charactures is by Burne Hogarth and the title is DYNAMIC FIGURE DRAWING. It is great in getting action to the posses and the book as a paper back is not that much money Since we are all starving artists. Forshortening is your friend and it is very tricky. The problem with the demon is that one wing should be tilted back and away so you would only get a sliver of it while the one coming toward you will be much more elongated as you have it now. Practice, practice practice.

I would say the buffallo man is your best. Try to do more with them than cell shading because its obviouse you really sweat over the line-art. In your first post, there's something wrong with the back perspective and the back leg is not positioned corectly. In the second - the malevolent guy - all that unbalances the drawing are the inner spikes. I already can hear him always crying "ouch" and mumble some curses.
The demon guy seems to almost fall appart and the wings are uneven. Its obviouse you have great imagination and potential, all you need is some more anatomy books and a lot more work.

I see some growth. Try this for practice and I am sure it seems dumb but it will help. Draw your demon in this pose. Work from simple shapes. Work it from general to specific. Do not bog down in any one area until the whole thing is blocked out. This image has a bit of overlap and foreshortening. If you can get this down it will help a lot.

Use the picture as a reference. Look at the angle of the feet and the knees. Do the same for the sholders and hands. Print it nd draw contruction lines on top of the print if it helps.

either one, I like the orange guy. Here is a hint. Think of his head as a tapered cylinder and the jaw muscles like spheres. The horns are cones. You go back later ones the whole body is layed out and add the curves and detail. Use the construction liines as a guide to place things like eyes and nostrals. This is a rough sketch showing what I mean. It helps givve you the idea of the thing as a 3D object.
