On the most recent one, I'd say his head needs to be a little bit bigger. Also, it doesn't quite match the rest of the body...probably because you redid it. It might be that the lines are a little heavier, but I'm not sure.

I may not be the best manga/anime critique due to the fact that I suck at drawing that style, but in the above picture the guy I think is holding a gun? the rest of the pic is great but it looks as if he is holding a squirt gun because it looks like water is coming out of the end?

I could be wrong, but I think it's a big paint brush.

ok heres a sketch of th main antagonist

also i attempted at rendering it and the sketch of the main character shown above in the previous posts this is the first time i have ever used colour, i used ms paint lol anyway im kinda happy how they turned out although theyre not great.
It would be a real help if some one could show me some tutorials on rendering and colouring on photoshop or anyother program because ms paint really sucks and is a pain in the ***

You seem to do really well with the skin tones and shadowings on the flesh, but everything else seems cheap compared to what you do with the skin. For example, I really like the antagonist, but his feet need some definite work, and you could do a lot to soften and shade his clothes to show a little more definition.

i realised that as well it seems that rendering clothes is alot harder with all the folds and highlights
i will eventually try and figure it out thanks for the criticism

Any comments on the actual inked drawing that i have done recently because im more concerned with how im goin in terms of drawing rather than colouring atm as 90% or more of my manga will be in black and white
i am tryin a new style different to my previous posts so just wondering wat you guys think should i keep with it or try something new? Are these drawings good enough for me to actually start panelling

Really, just the usual stuff, from what I can see. Practise more on the hands and feet, and proportions. You might want to soften the lines a little too, because they're kind of rough and sketchy, but that might be a product of whatever you're using to draw them.
