Hmm, while you do have interesting ideas; it would be best if you put Photoshop aside and studied basic drawing skills a bit more. I suggest that you stop using dodge and burn for your shades and tints for starters.

You are talented at drawing faces. And your concepts are quite creative too. Suggesting you to study the human figure. I used to think "i just have to study human figure superficially, because manga is sooooo easy". But it is not true. You have to have a basic understanding of forms and anatomy, to create convincing figures. So, keep it up! : )
Thanks for your suggestions you guys! I do this for fun, as I am a web designer for a living. I don't really intend to study figures much more or change my style, as I am quite pleased with it and don't plan on making a career out of my this. Thanks again for the suggestions !
Thanks again folks who previously left some tips! They've been very helpful.
thanks for the pointers. As I've said before, I draw because I love doing it and I post my work in this sketchbook so I can refer back to it later. I am also challenging myself to draw something new every single day.
I like using Photoshop, so I'm gonna keep using it :3. I'm actually still learning the program some more, as I just started using it late last year . However, I'm not really looking to make something realistic. I'm happy with my current style and I'm sure it will evolve naturally with time. I'm not in a rush to get better over night, as I am going to school right now. I simply post the things that I am happy with.
Thanks for the advice, but I am pretty happy where I am right now as far as art is concerned. I'm not looking to get anyone's approval, I'm just drawing as I go. I have no intentions of making my style more "realistic" or anything of the sort in the near future.
That's a shame. You're not bad with the body shapes, but are very mush using symbols for the facial features, especially in the profile ones. Wouldn't take much to go one step back and three steps forward. When you're ready let us know and help.
