Lasarian avatar.

I keep feeling like there is something off on it.
(I don't mean the shading. For now.)

That is what a Lasarian is and looks like.
Its a made up species.

This is my first attempt at avatars,so here goes:

Anyone spot anything wrong ?

I'll go into more detail later. But first things first, you are not in the right perspective at all. Furcadia avatars work on a 3/4 or "isometric" perspective. http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&q=furcadia+horse+avatar#/d1uv1ne that should help.
You might also want to work on the realism of your limbs, right now they aren't connected at all to the body and walk like straight toothpicks. Look at the limbs on these creatures and see how they join the body.
Because this is the closest thing to the limb structure of your creature that I can think of -> http://bloggit.es/files/2010/10/triceratops-ga-1s0oze6.jpg
To better understand this, always thing of the BONE structure.
And just a note for how it is right now, the front legs are too short. With how low the spine and hips go the front legs are practically hanging/hovering right now. Never be afraid to draw guidelines. Draw out a furcadia floor square and then find the lines your av follows and make sure each leg touches the appropriate line (again refer to the tutorial above with the horse).
Perhaps slater I might redline to better demonstrate what I'm talking about. But try that. ALWAYS start with guidelines in the correct isometric pattern. If you do that and constantly check that your av is on par with the guidelines, you'll have great avs. Don't be afraid to use the diagram provided in the tutorial to help you align your av.
I started with that and now I make my own isometric guides.

Maybe add some bar stripes on the back? The legs have plenty of stuff going on but the back is lacking. Possibly put something on the tail too!
