I know that's supposed to be a paintbrush, but it looks like a rubber ice cream cone. Fun style. This character seems pensive or shy from the crossed feet, despite the angry bird flip. Some kind of inner conflict going on here.

hmm... yeah, some good points there.. much more to the drawing i guess.. i think i let what im used to drawing (inward pointing feet, etc) get in the way of the "message" behind the whole picture..
thanks for your crit!

Aliens with strange expressions and postures is to be expected from aliens. So that's cool. This one looks like a paint sniffer. Not the best choice for your mascot. LOVE the sexy lady cartoons on your website. Maybe Playboy would buy some stuff like that?

some nice work, but I think Frazetta deserves a credit (if there is already one there, it is not immediately obvious).

Best regards

Alex

Your style is great! His hand with the bird looks kind of off, but maybe it's just me. Looks good I like it

Hey man, great sketch.. really dig your shapes 'n linestyle.

I think the hand flippin' the bird looks off, at least to me, is because he only has 4 fingers.. after I realized it, it made sense. ;D

Do you write?
