Not bad. Lots of lighting on the outfit, and the use of only yellow is nicely done. I kind of like the suitcase-head idea. The figure is good, but my problems are with the rest of the piece. So much dedicated to text, and the text's placing just feels a little awkward, mostly because of those ray-filled boxes around the words. And, finally, "He's got a PhD in BEING RAD." just feels a little too similar to "He's got a PhD in KICKING YOUR ASS." from MondoMedia's Dr. Tran.
It's a good drawing, I'm just not particularly fond of how it's put together.
You know, you're exactly right. I drew the figure alone about three months ago, and not long after I felt the piece was missing something, and whatever I put into the background never satisfied me. I finally settled with the text boxes here, which also never sat well with me.
Looking at it now after reading your review, though, I couldn't agree more. The boxes are indeed superfluous, and detract from the rest of the drawing. I guess I was just afraid without some text to explain it, the punchline behind a doctor with a briefcase for a head would've been too obscure for most people, and in the end I choked.
I'll definitely keep these things in mind in my future works.
