I love your art and everything that you do, and actually your tutorials give great information on the manga style it self.
I just would like to say I am sure you know the epitome and the bottom of all this. Because your proportion knowledge is there, and you either learnt from life or models (however some people actually learn from looking at other anime art :/, i did at the start, but that source was very limited for me)
I think what needs to be mentioned is that people need to learn how to draw Humans, or atleast learning the skeleton and muscles, etc. Because just knowing the style will not make your characters dynamic and alive.
Ofc i am not all knowing and i am still learning from life, and will learn my whole life. But this is where i believe everything starts.
Do you know those how to draw manga books? In my opinion they don't teach anything at all, because they never really teach you life. (actually the only books that ever helped my improve is 50 years old ones, that focus on detailed human anatomy).
However it could be different for all, and this is just my opinion. If you got your skills in other ways i think that's great, and then my opinion is invalid and is personified to preferences.
Sorry for broken english :). I am in no way judging your tutorials, i think they are great, and very well organised, and I love how you draw eyes! Thanks for taking your time to post them. I am just suggesting an add-on that is all :).

I'm super glad I cam across your DA, I really enjoy drawing manga style.  My only problem is that I seem to only be able to draw characters if I have a tutorial.  Otherwise anything I draw turns into a mess.  Now, with a better understanding on HOW to draw and the proper techniques, I think I can take it to the next level.  So please, keep posting!

The only reason why this turn to be a mess, is because a lot of tutorials forget to mention: "You must draw from life".
What you need to learn is now Manga style, but drawing people and then transfer it to manga style.
I went through all those thick and thick woods myself, and the only way I could get better is drawing people. The best learning is if you have a life model. Your skills sky rocket. (ofc not in one day, but the process speeds up)
