.....but I've stopped drawing from life now because it doesn't look right for this sort of thing which is why I wanted to get rid of it.
Any other technical issues are just exaggeration and style.

 I'm still appreciating any and all comments though.
I think your problems are highlighted here. Drawing from life will improve your drawing of the things you pull from your imagination as well, because they will be grounded in reality, if that makes sense. Also, the second comment I've highlighted is very dismissive of any crits that may come your way! For the record, though, I quite like what you've posted so far.

By writing though I mean it's all written in my head, just need to type it.

Y'see, that isn't actually writing. That's what we call 'having an idea.'

Same as Travis Bickle, but with a pen instead of a gun.

Play nice everyone.

Any heat is good heat ;)

Emperor, you're standing too near to the uranium!  ::)

I haven't been around uranium in years. I blame it on the half-life.
if I went 'round saying I was an Emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they'd put me away!

Those manga guys you love so much (I love them too! shinkawa= the best) have a depth to their style which isn't forced but comes from being a good draughtsman first. The sooner you challenge yourself and stop taking shortcuts and calling it 'style' the better. A good 'stylised' piece doesn't come from the artists shortcoming in draughtsmanship. All those artists you quoted me learnt the fundamentals first, from 1000's of drawings from life i bet. You need to know something before you can simplify it, so many people who like comics and manga miss this point, get to a lifedrawing class. I understand your point about being another Jim Lee clone, I don't want to be that either! But the sloppy style guys (Shinkawa,Wood, Murphy) make it look easy because they can draw like a classical artist first.

Keep ignoring your weaknesses and you might end up the next Liefield instead.

good luck
