Your continued efforts to practice and improve are admirable, but after several months, it seems that you still have not really put much effort into anatomical structure beyond a very rudimentary sense of proportion.

While your overall poses and perspective are definitely improving, your general skeletal and muscular placement and sizes are still somewhat skewed, distorted, and unbalanced. Arms and legs need to be the same size on both sides of the body, with joints such as hips, knees, shoulders and elbows at the same proportional height of the body (allowing for perspective of pose, of course).

Although you do not need to have a highly detailed knowledge of anatomy, it is to your benefit to be more familiar with the basic general proportions of the human body, and musculature of animals, so that your artwork provides more than just a vague concept of a horse or dragon, or a still too cartoonish rendering of people.

The Andrew Loomis books (http://fineart.sk/photo-references/andr ... tomy-books) are one of the most valuable resources you will ever find to improve your drawing skills, and I highly recommend you give them a look over. Even if you do not dedicate yourself to studying them, you will find that they will strengthen your foundations of drawing and human anatomy.

Here is a general animal anatomy tutorial (http://tinyurl.com/8er8l38) to help you better understand skeletal, joint, and animal shapes, which you will find useful for fantasy creatures, as well as actual ones. Just understanding more how bodies move and how the anatomy works to allow for movement will, combined with your efforts in poses, take your drawing to the next level.

Keep up the good work!
