So my first art submission to newgrounds was a flash drawing of my father, I used to draw him a lot back then, and I couldn't use photoshop...So I think I've improved a lot in speed, since I guess it took me a bit more than an hour to do both, even thought I still never know where to finish or what way to go with a piece, but well we're all still learning, and I know a little something of anatomy now. I guess have a lot of masters to thank, and of course Tom for giving such a source of inspiration that is Newgrounds.

Looking good, man. You've made some great improvements since the original, particularly in the areas of shading, anatomy and expressions. I really like the way the rendering is done, from far away when you're looking at the whole picture it looks like any other painting that has been rendered finely and but when it's enlarged you see every brush stroke I don't know if that's intentional or not but I think it's a very cool effect you have going on. Of course there is always room for improvement, in some areas you go full white with the highlights which I feel could be toned down since it kind of gives a plastic feel to the guy, mostly on the shirt (the head is fine). Also the grey shirt kind of kills the mood of the character's expression something a bit more vibrant would probably be better, same goes fro the background. Either way great job, man. I look forward to your improvements in the future.
