    Please critique me

    I am an amateur artist. I never attended art school, and it shows. Please give me any constructive criticism on this cartoon. I draw because I want to illustrate funny jokes. I am not a "serious" artist. But I would love to hear from anyone on what they think of my work. Thank you!

    The site would be a useful tool in becoming a serious artist. You don't have a good enough grasp of the basics (shape, form, composition, etc.) to make use of the critique people here would give, I don't think.

    For what it is:

    I know this is a spoof on Abbey Road, but I don't think this would be immediately apparent even to some heavy Beatles fans without the text on the bottom. Readability is one of the reasons gag cartoons are so successful. Being able to distort the figure however you want, but still have it read as the person you're referencing, is a skill you'd need to develop. Especially if you want to keep making these.

    I kinda have to disagree with not needing the text, I'm not going to see overweight beetles and immediately think FLABBY, I'll probably just go 'fat road, I don't get it?'. So the text does help. That being said the image itself is a bit hard to read.

    My point wasn't that he did or didn't need the text. What I meant was that without the text it's a lot harder to read what the image is supposed​ to be because the drawing doesn't look like The Beatles.
