Its not my intention to flood the Art board but I wanted to see the reaction of this next one and i any ideas would help too.  
[img'http://members.aol.com/keiichiny/images/kaze.jpg[/img]

He's going to be a character in a manga i'm trying to get off the ground.  So far his name is Kaze, and he's a member of the royal bodygaurd (yes this is one of those western fantasy settings) The setting is a sort of steam industry age/magic age complete with elves, halflings, and catgirls (just to statisfy MMX)etc. I have another character in the works.  people plz post ideas for the plot & CC for the art.  

ps.  The armor design i got from an armadillo mixed with football shoulder guards.  It's very odd i know but i wanted to be unique!

Nice... btw, you can just hit the Modify button next to one of your own posts. (The middle icon at the upper right of your post) and you can edit the post if it's yours.

And the pic is nice, the pants remind me of a HUmar from PSO, though =P

What kind of blade is the guy's sword? Looks curved, but is that just a mistake? ^^"

(BTW - LET'S SEE SOME CATGIRLS ^.^ ^_-)

Wait...Cloud and Rhamza †had a kid?! ::cleans glasses:: : O-O : ...oh , i mean, nice pic kojiro ^_^

The eyes look REALLY nice, with the Pioneer anime-ish "reflective" look to them...The (Lunarish??) stripes under the eye help to balance out his haead/face...

Cool logo on the belt buckle

Is he wearing shorts or does he just have on thin Longboots?

One Q on the chara's "left" hand [as yer looking at him]: wouldn't it be kinda hard to properly wield a sword with a big bulky wrist/hand guard on yer sword hand...? I'm presuming the other arm is bedecked with a swept-back plate gauntlet...just curious

very nice pic ^_^ i think he might look a biiiiit too much like cloud tho, not that that takes away from the artwork, but just, if your gonna use him in an original manga, ya might wanna mod the hair ^_- again though, it is a neat-o pic ^_^

It's a really good pic, but I think that you need to simplify both arms (more the right arm than the left) and get rid of that knuckle doo-dad on the left wrist...Also, is his left arm bandaged or just ruffed up?

Overall, a good pic!

ack.  i just noticed my own mistake oh well.  Anyway the right arm is armored because i inteded to have him have one arm free without armor so he can move the sword easier.  (the sword is on the wrong side though the hilt should be on the right side) so he can use his weapon with one hand and the other arm is armored, similar to the way you fight with shield and buckler, except an armored gauntlet instead of a buckler.

BTW i always have trouble drawing guys' hair so either it looks like a samurai topknot, Keiichi from OMG, or a samurai topknot.  Oh well any good hair ideas would be welcome too.

A trick i've picked up, if the hair is spiky, set up some very large spikes as guidelines (maybe five for the whole head of hair) then divide each spike into segments and factor in gravity.... as long as you pay careful attention it can work pretty well...

I like your style ^_^ You're just a tad more conventional than I am ^^; And looser...I'm too much of a perfectionist...but wait- is that an imperfection? ^^;
Anyway, I like your drawing and i wont critique it because it seems like it's supposed to be really loose- meaning that your lines aren't completely precise. Well...whatever the case, experimenting with new hair styles is never easy. A friend of mine is a really good artist with a unique style, but every character looks the same because he can only draw hair like Vegeta's.

Its a good idea to experiment with different hair styles, but be careful not to lose your style while doing so, or else you'll end up like me, with no single style to stick to.

The crownless again shall be king.

Turin, you're RIGHT! How can I ever manage to be perfect if striving to be perfect holds me back?! I have to NOT strive for perfection in order to be perfect! IT'S BRILLIANT!!! *____*

I often try to be percise also but at some point I eventually I give up trying to be accurate.  I also tend to get very loose with my drawing when i really don't know what to add next.
