The head does look small and its not because of the long shoulders. The legs look like they could be shortened to fix it up as well as moving his eyes and hair.

His sleeves don't match up as the sleeve on the hand holding the sword goes all the way to his wrist but the other sleeve ends at slightly beyond his elbow. There should be more fabric bunched up in that area to compensate. His back foot is tiny in comparison to the front one. It looks like you're trying to use size to describe perspective, but it needs to be larger.

Lastly samurai use katana and katanas have a slight bend to them whereas ninja swords are straight.

I actualy really like this. i like the pose you gave him and the scroll background. and overall, its pretty nice to look at. nice job

Dendrobium_Zero pretty much touched on everything that i was gonna point out. however, i dont mind long legs. but that being said, his left knee doesnt seem to be in right spot judging from the angle of his left foot. i played around with the image abit to show what i would do. keep'em comin

zero :actually d sleeve's iv made r wrist length.the fact dat one is endin at elbow its cuz of gravity its fallin back..ya i'l put up more fabric there and the back foot isnt tiny its raised..only the toes are restin on d slippers an laslty u got me at d sword point cuz my knowledge was lil weak there..
ixion: tho ur right at arm point my this guy isnt this ur normal manga ways..he;s a samurai of gud built so his lil over proportions are justified an d knee isnt visible or as u find its position doubtful its cuz of the heavy fabric design otherwise its at the same place where u pointed...
al in all thnx for ur coments..keep em comin it'l make my next idea bettr

the picture seems flat to me, i dont know whether its the shading of the colors or the way the clothing is drawn. it doesnt feel like it has a 3d feel to the char. i'd try learning how things look in real life like a pant leg on some one or a cup and then you'll see nuances that will helkp your rendering and make it pop more

pretty solid picture.

I don't know if this was intended, but it looks like he's on uneven ground, from his legs and feet's placement, he'd be on a slope, going downwards.

Otherwise, as far as his head goes, I don't think it's necessarily too small, but his face might be. It's something I tended to do too, but it seems like his facial features are stuck on a small part of his head, while the back of his head seems too large in comparison.

I see what you mean about his back foot. I'd try to make the arch of his foot not come up so straight to show that only his toes are on the ground.

Yay a samurai ^_^, He looks very sharp. I particulary like the right arm and how well you've drawn the sleeves and its folds. Nice background by the way really gives the overall image the "Samurai-ish" touch.

Keep up the good work
