Yo, I see that you're a young artist and i'd love to watch you and see your progress as you grow.
Here's a few tips, pointers, and a little bit of critique:

1. Look at references, they're your best way to improve
References include:
Anatomical structures
Looking at actual pictures of animals and looking at the general anatomy of them
Looking at videos to see how animals move (Their muscle structure most importantly)

2. Take art classes if you can
This is also another really good way to improve. If they don't provide art classes at your school, then that's okay! You don't absolutely need art classes to improve. You can also look at a lot of youtube videos to help you out.

3. Look at shading and lighting and research it.
I see there's little shading and lighting, but you can for sure improve on that. Take an object in real life, put it near a light. Draw a small dot for reference for your light source (Where the light is coming from) and shade the object by observation. 

4. Study backgrounds
Look at horizon lines, focal point, among other things like plants, grass, etc.

5 Try not to use as many lines.
I see this very often, and it makes the dinosaur look kinda like it's been starved. Once you get better at shading, lighting, this will usually naturally improve overtime.

6. Do a little bit of research on character development
Do thorough though into all of your characters, and ask questions for example:
"Why does this character act this way?"
"What's the backstory?"
"How and why does this character have this ability?"
"How does this tie into the world around him/her?"
"How would others around him/her react?"
"How and why did this certain thing in this backstory happen? Is it reasonable?"
As well, I'd recommend what defines a "Marry Sue" and "Garry stu", and make sure you steer clear of making your characters like that.
Remember, every person has flaws and fears, balance it out with the good things about the character!

7. Study color theory
Make colors pleasing to the eye, or how to make colors pop without making your art look very neon and displeasing. You can for sure look up videos on color theory, or look at real life animals to see how the colors contrast with each other.

Those are my tips and critiques. I absolutely love seeing artists like you improve and grow. You have things to improve on, but that doesn't mean you should stop. It's just more opportunity to make yourself grow and improve. Keep up the good work!:) (Smile) 

PS: I really hope you can get out of those tough times in life as well. I've gone through a lot, myself, and it's not easy. But you can make it through, it may seem impossible, but life does improve. I hope you get better mentally and pull through.
