I think you should spend a lot more time on the basics of this.  Don't just run in with the line tool, then the paint bucket and slightly dither parts.  Take more time and create a solid base concentrating on volumes and forms depending on this creature.  It looks very off-balance and - even though its not a real creature - anatomically couln't exist. 

It's good that your starting small, but a few basic art skills / physical studies would benefit you more before pixel shading techniques.

What is it?  And why did you cut its head off at the top like that?  Just using a little thought could go a long way.  Obviously you need to smooth out the lines so they're not so bumpy, and you'll need to move the head.  It's not really connected to the body right now.
