Paul.

This looks great Paul, it's funny right away. I could only see a few small things to look for:

-His chin area looks kind of like a beard, it might have something to do with the right side armpit area and the way the bottom 'tip' is shaped.

-the ears might be too different in size. The one on the right is funnier.

Nice work, keep it up.

I'm working on that one right now too. Yours is a lot better than mine. The only major problem I spot with yours is Kaspar's right leg. It seems to be lacking proper structure and perspective. It is an awkward pose ain't it.

A minor critique would be the fingers & toes could use more interesting shapes.

Keep it up!

Thanks guys!

Caleb - now all i can see when i look at it is a beard! :P & yeah, i think the larger ear could use some work, it looks almost like it's not connected to the head.

Patrick - i agree, that leg looks flat, i should make it overlap the foot. His other leg (Kaspar's left) looks a bit small too.

Fingers & toes are tricky - trying to get the balance between making them interesting without being distracting!

Cheers guys.

I agree with patrick's leg analysis. Your face is very pleasing! Actually your lines are pleasing too, you've got the skills man! :D Keep it up!
