I think that the art community online can give the impression that you HAVE to be doing master studies to be really learning, but if you don't apply them immediately, it's easy to forget what you've learned. Are you trying to study Sargent's edgework? The planes of the human head? Or colors and skintones? Trying to remember all of them at once is overwhelming, so be targeted and specific when you do a master study.
In addition to that, if you enjoy painting anthropomorphic characters and animals, go ahead and study actual animals too (photos and paintings of them both)! Your ability to handle the anatomy of your fictional characters and paint things like paws and fur will only improve as a result. I'm afraid I'm totally inexperienced with drawing and painting animals so I can't offer much specific criticism, but some good resources I've seen would include Terryl Whitlatch's book Science of Creature Design and Aaron Blaise's videos.

Anyway bro, I did a paint over for you. It's not super amazing but at least I'm trying to help, yeah?
It goes like this: The original, Yours, and then mine.
My diagnosis: do long studies with an emphasis on getting the form right. If value and edges doesn't make sense try doing master studies of artist's pencil drawings. Personally, I did a bunch of studies from henry Yan. I don't think that he did anything special, but it's the experience that comes with practice. It's just like elementary school. Practice and memorize first, and the understanding comes later.
One last thing: don't let style become a a crutch. Develop your drawing abilities and use it to enhance your style. Never, NEVER, choose a style because it easier or hides your abilities.
