    The perspective on the base of the bowl is not matching up with the perspective on the rest of the bowl.
    The face could also be redone, it seems like the least slickest part of the image, yet is the focal point, it looks a little rushed.

    The rest of it is all thumbs up though. What's the plan for the frame in the back?

    Thanks Mustang. I see what you mean about the bowl. I'll fix that.

    What don't you like about the face? Is it the glasses?

    The frame is gonna have an autographed photo of Mike and Jerry.

    Do you think it needs shading? I was gonna add shading but I didn't want to make it too busy.

    I don't know if it needs shading or not, but the perspective on the shelves could probably use some work. For example, the table is angled away from the viewer, yet the shelves and everything on it are dead on straight. The things on top of the shelf look like they're behind the edge, yet you can't see the underside of the roof of it.

    Err, yeah Earthworm has got a point, but I don't see you fixing that without scrapping the background and starting almost from scratch.

    and yes, getting the glasses right would make a big difference but the smile is also a bit wonky.

    earthwormadam - You can't actually see the underside of the shelves in the reference pic (or in real life). But I see what you mean and I think I can give them some more depth using some shading. Thanks!

    Mustang - I'll see if I can fix the smile. I'm trying to make him look happy without being too happy. If that makes sense.

    Update below. I think the only that might be missing is some shadows for the shelves.

    Sorry for another update so soon. I just wanted to "finish" it before the deadline. I'm gonna post it in the contest thread, but any last-minute comments are welcome. :)

    CALLING ALL ROBOTS

    My next project is gonna be drawing a bunch of robots, so I figured I'd draw "robots" from the AC. So far I have:

    Scott Wegener
    Beavotron
    Slacktron
    Six
    desperaterobots
    Nibcrom

    Am I missing anyone else that has a robot name/avatar?

    Would that mean I would have to roboticize Robert Downey Jr. without making him into Iron Man? I'm not saying I wouldn't be up for the challenge, I'm just curious as to what you have in mind. 8-)

    Gah! I totally remembered you at one point, but forgot to right it on my post-it-note. Sorry! You're definitely on the list. If it makes you feel better, I drew you like two years ago.

    How dare you sir. Do you have any idea how long it took me to do this? It isn't just a screen cap, cropped. It is 100% pure original pixel art.

    My greatest apologies, sir. <img class=" title=":lol:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

    But I think I do actually have a good idea for your robot.

    Mustang...well that's a horse actually, but if I'm doing RobertDowneyJrBot how could I say no? :D

    I still have the one you did for me!

    And if my final art sucks you'll definitely have to do one. Buckwolfe, do you want to be part of this madness? I don't want to pressure any non-robots, but I don't want you to feel left out and cry in your room.

    *shudder!* I hate looking at my old art. Looking back on it, I sooo could have done better than that at the time. I feel ashamed...

    Also, I think you are programed to be jealous of my ability to feel, and express emotion.
