Hey Wallasaurus
Some very interesting stuff in these. If you push the ideas and rendering just a little further, I think they can go from good to awesome. My suggestions:
1. The bioluminescent Kangaroo-beast (sorry Not sure what to call them but maybe the names can give you an idea of how they're reading). It seems that this creature fishes with the bioluminescent appendage on its finger. A cool idea, but how does it catch the fish? Maybe you can push the neck and head anatomy to be even better suited to catching its prey once the bio-light attracts a fish. The lighting on the back and tail are very convincing. bring up the same level of rendering on the head and your sketch will have a more unified level of work. Maybe pose the arms so they're not overlapping so we get a better sense of how they function.

2. Elephant snout - this guy I think I see two arms attached to the snout. a cool concept. I thought they were tusks initially. Pose the arms in a more identifiable silhouette and it will hammer home the concept. this one is nicely rendered. maybe add in some more environment in the extreme bg to give us a sense of the landscape this guy inhabits.
