This is something I made when I was bored and used MS Paint to draw it.
The Angel is Hero, He is a referee. The demon is Bob, he has a paint brush that can make things real, and also double as a lightsaber. The girl with the mace is Shinia, she is the reason Hero's a ref in the first place, while the person in the middle is me. I'm holding the omega hammer of ejection!

Any questions?

Well, hmm... the character designs look good, and the overall quality's pretty impressive for MS Paint, but... you seem to be having quite a bit of trouble with anatomy. Like... the person with the mace shouldn't be able to stand up straight with a waist that thin and legs of differing lengths... Not to mention that the wet noodle arm could probably use medical attention. I don't think they're supposed to curve like that...

These should be able to help you out a bit. Well, that or a really good chiropractor.

"Irregardless" and "Over exaggerated" are NEVER CORRECT EVER because they are redundant
Regardless means "without regard", and adding "ir" on the front actually makes it a double negative; exaggerate means "to overstate" so you're literally saying "over overstate."
Example: I can not exaggerate the importance of this fact enough, regardless of how often people ignore it.

You sound like my brother right now, and besides do you have any idea how tough it is to draw humanoid beings in MS paint?!

Yes. As I've tried it. With a laptop mouse pad. And it's true that given the difficulty of drawing in Paint, you did very well. Silver wasn't making fun of how your drawings looked. He was suggesting ways for you to improve them. And unless you draw in a completely different way using pencil/pen and paper, I think his suggestions are pretty good ones. Part of what makes humanoid beings so difficult to draw, regardless if you're using Paint or Photoshop or paper, is the anatomy and proportions, which, as Silver mentioned, you seem to be having problems with. To put it another way, not even people with waist sizes of 0 are that thin around the middle. Women are typically as broad in the shoulder as they are in the hip, while men have narrower hips and broader shoulders. Hands actually do have four fingers and a thumb, which are visible whether they're holding things or not. And heads are usually about one-half or one-third the width of the shoulders rather than being almost the same width.

I'm not trying to be harsh here. I myself still have problems when drawing people. But there's definitely room for improvement. Whether you decide to actually improve or not is your choice, really.

Fingers are the hardest part when I draw in paint.

Those are awesome! Compared to mine, you should be extremely proud. And I'm not saying that you're drawing is bad, I'm saying its awesome!

This is Zevorz the shadowhound, I originally created him on Amazing Island, however, I drew him as an antrho and a ninja.

This is Chris the Charmling. He is an alchemist and I based a few of his skills off FMA but one I invented consists of gathering all the trace metals in a monster's body, fusing them into a ball and calling the sphere to the user's hand. Now, I will go hide from Silver in case he sees this.

Because of two main factors:
1)Your level of skill is low (no proportions or bodies, blockyness)
2)MS Paint (it IS possible to make awesome things with Paint...it's just way hard)

Well, my favorite is the third one, and I think that they're really good!

It's a matter of opinion to a certain extent. Silver and Shadowman are right that the proportions are way off and the joints and the like need work as well. And, while they're better than a lot of the stuff done in Paint, better stuff can be done in Paint. Just look at Silver's Soap Opera comics, for example. In conclusion, not a bad effort but if you want to go from ok to good, you'll need to learn a lot more about anatomy and perspective in art.
