Hello bloodysmiley! Welcome to CA! The best place in the whole universe for those who really want to improve their art and attitude toward it.
I can see from what you posted that theres a ton of ideas in your head just waiting to get out and be drawn! Cool start! Another thing I'll give you points for is that you are studying that the body can be drawn using cylinders! thats cool too!
Now, you might get some comments from those who personally do not like or care for anime/ manga. Some will give helpful advice in a nice way, some might say it in a slightly less nice way..but if you really want to improve, look for the gems in what people have to say.
But always remember that well done Manga based on proper anatomy and such, can look and does look awesome!
So with that said, below is a link to a magical spot here in CA where you can download tons of useful books on anatomy and such..these will help get you started on your journey to self improvement! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=94571
I SWEAR ON THE GRAVES OF ALL THE TALENTED FILIPINO ARTISTS WHO HAVE GONE BEFORE ME, THE FILIPINO ART LEGACY WILL CONTINUE!
