I also like the "weirdness" / supernatural element that each piece has. Your character designs are very cool, and I am a fan of the more alien/humanoid characters you've made.
For color schemes, I would suggest using a few tools. The first being Adobe Kuler. This is a really good tool because it lets you plug in colors from an existing palette you might be working with in order to create new combnations. It quickly & easily lets you create schemes that are complementary, analogous, monochromatic, etc.
Another tool I enjoy is Colourlovers. If I'm starting new and have no idea where to start, sometimes I'll browse colourlovers for ideas for palettes. They even have search features that let you browse by specific color combinations, or even a specific hex code if you are looking for a very particular color!
Another thing I would suggest would be to use photoreferences as inspiration, and this is where pinterest and google images can come in handy. You can search things that are similar to your character, for example "drab highschool" or "red punk", etc, and see what comes up. You might find some interesting ideas for color palettes that can help spark your imagination!
Also, if you find a photograph that you really like and want to draw colors from, Pictaculous is a tool that will create color palettes from photographs. It's not perfect, but it is a nice place to start sometimes.
Good luck!! Looking forward to seeing what you create next
Anyway, tried doing something more dynamic than usual but not really sure about it. I'm pretty bad at drawing backgrounds digitally so it may just be distracting from the focal point. The background is maybe too static, like the person shows movement but the rest doesn't, but not sure what I could do differently. Also, looking at it the trees seem too short? Not sure

I enjoy your last works especially.
this messy lineart is pleasant, I think it fits better with your style over the super clean ones.
I'd love to see how your works will look by the end of 2018.
Anyway, drew anoter monster dude for something I'm working on, though I'm not that sure what the project will end up as
