Just from an anatomical standpoint, this looks loads better.

I like it, you've improved alot!
But I recommended you use a reference when you draw stuff, It helps alot!

I don't mean to hate but you have a lot to learn about drawing people. But don't be discourage art is all about learning new techniques. A good tip for drawing anime is to borrow from realism; I would say move the eyes down a bit, more toward the center of the face, plus the chin is a bit too far forward.
but like the guy above me said use refences and also study anatomy. Draw bones, muscles and figure out the proportions of everything in the body. and practice practice practice; You'll do much better.

On second thought, I reccomend you try drawing from a reference completely, you learn so much from it.
Especially on hands. Thing is, that jaw/face is just to strange, drawing from a reference will help you understand where everything goes. (Head indents, where cheek bones are, what connects to what, all that stuff) Do this around 10 times and you'll start to remember where everything goes, depending on what kind of reference you use.
Check out this
Than check out some andrew loomis books. They are incredibly helpful when it comes to this, once you start to understand figures better do some figure drawing to make them ALOT less stiff.
This picture is good except for the hands and head, everything else looks ok!
Keep on drawing and soon you'll be amazing! You've got the potential.

You could benefit from having a much more constitent inking or lining (whatever you call it)

i can tell that you probably either have the smoothing much too high (use smoothing around 30-50) trust me it will look kind of shit until you get used to it. or you are using the "smoothen" tool waayyyyy too much once you finish a drawing.

also the shading should be more constitent either that or you need to ad more detail to your guys.

maybe that guy has a flatish kind of oval top and your shading is perfect, from my perspective your shading looks rather off considering the light source you are trying to emulate. the shading seems to cut off near the top rather than curving off like your light source implies.

also this is just a personal thing but your shading seems a bit too abrasive, you seems to darken it much too quickly which would be fine if you had minimal shading, but with you shading a good 70% of the character it might be more effective to use much lighter shading, or to colour your lines might help the "really dark shaded" look

i just reshaded your guy using the techniques i listed so you could see what they look like (just the head because i am lazy)

I use the line tool for the lines, did the outlines and filled it with the fill tool

then is the really inconstitent lines thing done on purpose? because i am 100% sure that you can adjust the universal thickness of your lines. i mean i don't really like it but art is a pretty subjective thing so if it was intentional then don't mind my comments on the lines, but still work on the shading.
