BECAUSE FEEDBACK SHOULD BE FREE:

Okay. First off, I really like this one. Your human work is improving a lot. He kind of reminds me of Homer Simpson, in a way. :)

Moving on: the first thing I noticed that seemed odd was the formation of his ear lobe. The tragus* looks fine, but there's a second little extrusion above the tragus that I think you could omit. It looks natural to me. The anti-tragus* seems unusually shaped as well. Granted not everyone's earlobe is the same, but it seems a bit too exaggerated.

I love his face, it's hilarious. One tiny note is that his stubble/beard looks pretty thick, and yet his neck is hairless. In real life, I would that he would have some stubble on his neck as well...but at the same time it's stylized and I really do like the way it looks. So maybe play with it a bit but I wouldn't entirely suggest that you change it.

I cant wait to see you fill on more of the body >:) Right now it's just gestured in, so I can't really say much. The collar of his shirt...hmm, it doesn't seem to pop-up like a real shirt collar. Reference: [link]


* Awesome ear reference I totally just found lawl: [link]

lol the ear is actually drawn from an old guy ref that i found, and it was an odd looking one. looked just like that. the only thing i exaggerated was i made it hairy lol. but if it looks odd i can tweak it.

and the stubble on the neck was actually something i thought of too. ill probably add that in the next sketch and see how it looks. great minds think alike lol

and the collar and body will look better once they are more than just a gesture. i kinda just threw them on and didnt bother looking for ref lol

thank you for both the ref pics. ill go through and tweak his ear and make his neck stubbly :)

lol, apparently I don't look at enough old-man ears XD; Hm, well, the guy that you drew appears more middle-aged that old, maybe that's why I'm not making the connection...uh...between him and his ear...lol.

:) Even though it doesn't necessarily reflect reality, I do like the stubble the way it is. Again, it's very simpson-esque.

good luck!

Well your character is strong and looks lively,, technique... A+,, given hes only one frame as well-(good sign) sooo good to see some traditional animation out there! And hey you look like you’ve got some mad skill, id love to see the final product!!! Will there be one? (fingers are crossed)

Haha! Hmmmm, well, depending on how hard you want to make it, drawing wise, to me it looks like the start key frame for a head turn, looking right then turning to the left. O so annoying and hard to draw,, but you could do like a cowboyish thing like he pulls a gun up or just chews his stalk thing(that would be easy and would look good) he could take his hat off and,, I don’t know wipe his brow or something, so many possibilities,, he looks really great though u should be happy, hope I helped-- and I hope you give him life!
