Pretty good! Try drawing whole bodies next, that would be awesome. Don't be afraid to look for references on the internet and whatnot.
Bros with Legomaestro since 2010. I think.

hey

You're not using guidelines, are you?

on the first pictures I used guidelines cause I painted with a tutorial book, on the other pictures not.

Sorry >.<

why sorry? If I wanted no serious comments, I would be not here  ;)

Here's some videos that will give you a sense of how to draw the face ~

The channels of MarkCrilley and SophieChan90 I know, but the MangaLessons channel is new to me.

Yup, I'd suggest you to try some of the tutorials. Epecially those telling about the elements of the face first. It would be better to try the whole body drawing part later when you'll get much more used to draw a traditional manga-style face, eyes, hair etc. It's sometimes better to focus on one thing and master it to a good level than trying all of it at once and pretty often stay at the same level for a long time.
If it's about the whole process of drawing then some exercises would help. Here are some of them: http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/topic,7451.0.html
And in trying to be better at drawing it's very important to do it often. It's good to try doing it every day [even when you don't have any ideas - some random things are fine too XD] and make it some kind of habit.
Hope I'd helped a bit XD. Good luck.

yes especially when you run out of ideas its a good plan to have something to fall back on, then you will be able to make the most use of your time :P
