Thanks! I was just tinkering and I liked it better without the ears. It looked more emoticon-y to me, which also eventually dictated the color choice.

I'll take it!

This next part is me speaking as just someone critiquing your art, not commands from Spags the collab organiser.

I love the snooty character, but you should consider making the "help me" character a bit nicer looking / compositionally powerful. I feel like it's kind of dragging your piece down. Move your char a bit to the right, have a single fully rendered arm reaching up from the ground with the help me, I think it would look better. It seems like you did the whole main character, got lazy, went "well shit" and just scribbled in the left of it. I believe in your powers, Knoc, you should keep going on it!

I am not gonna lie, that is exactly what happened. I had this exact idea in mind, but a bit better, the only reason I rushed is my band just finished recording and now I have to do all the album art and promo art and stuff and we're shooting for may 17th for the beginning of album/EP sales so I decided to push everything aside to work on that. Sorry

When I see or use that emoticon, it's usually to convey a lovestruck/awestruck kind of feeling, like I am about to praise whatever I'm replying to. I feel like your sketch right now is just a little girl trying on dorky sunglasses, which to me doesn't capture the emotion the face represents.

Sans dick, that is quite nice so far. Lookin' forward to the final product. And actually, the poorly rendered dick ain't so bad either ;)

What Dweeby said, also the lines could use some more variation. Using the pen tool, you have a lot of wasted potential here. Variate up the yin yang, man! Pick a brush that tapers at the end for her jawline/bangs/stuff like that! It'll look a lot nicer. Also, she seems kind of uneven/lopsided, you might wanna look into that. Her nose is randomly pointing to one side, her cheeks are flat but also poofy, the perspective is a bit wonky in general.
Overall, there is a lot wrong with this picture, but judging from what you've made in the past, I know you have the capability to make something a lot better than this. In my opinion, you should scrap this and try a different idea. Thanks!

Open spots:
8, 23, 28, 30
I know they aren't the most invigorating choices left, but we're running out of time, and if you make something really clever out of it, you'll look SO COOL in front of your friends.

Allright, Im going to give you some critique.
The eyes are not on the same height, maybe this is on purpose but i dont think it will add to the derpyness.

Yeah, I already moved it a little down since my previous sketch after it has been pointed out before. But if it doesn't make it look derpy, I can move it down some more. Thanks, that's really helpful pointer.

you could however give him big eyelids, most retards have this.

Ok I tried it, hopefull I didn't overdo it.

also maybe put his tongue out of his mouth, and put a bigger smile on his face so his cheeks will bulge more.

I went for a bigger smile, don't wanna make his tounge stick out.

I think its a good sketch though!

Thanks for your feedback it was remarkably helpful.

There can't be enough WIPs, right?

I can't wait to see what it looks like finished. Are you using traditional media?

Good question! I'm going back and forth on it, but I'm thinking I'll do watercolor. It's been so long since my last honest watercolor painting.
