Fun and lively little group! Have you considered introducing a bit more head shape variation so that you don't rely so heavily on the hair color and shape to differentiate them? In this drawing at least, the eyes, noses, and jaw lines look very similar (they look fine though!). The highlights on the...

Powerful image. The fuzz on his head is too noticeable for me as it distracts from the mood. And if there is a way to adjust the composition by moving your character a bit further down in the image (now, his head is almost on the horizontal middle), I think it would reinforce the mood. Putting him d...

How about you push the assignment beyond what you have? You could either play with space a lot more (what's in front, what's on the same pl...
