    first off the illustration works really well. good sense of motion and scale. also great choices on merging shapes and where to do detail, where to abstract it. great sense of depth also.

    here are my suggestions:
    1) the pose of the man seems a tad static for all of the chaos being shown from his papers/mug/etc. the pose he is currently in seems to be a minute past when he's been picked up but the items 2 seconds past when he's been picked up...maybe kicking up the legs more would increase the energy in his line of motion.

    2) the face of the robot does not seem as well planned nor contiguous with the design of the hand/arm of the robot.

    great work, keep it coming.

    Very well rendered, and definitely a fun illustration. Only crit from me (and it's nitpicky) is that the teeth of the robot seem too organic compared to the rest of him, perhaps gears as teeth or something else mechanical would have made it flow better.

    ditto on above, plus with the gums and bloodshot eyes. it looks great though esp. the shadows on the robot.

    That's some nice work. I like the human figure a lot more than the robot. Like said above the hand of the robot looks great but the head could use some better design. I really like the briefcase with all the crap falling out. It might look cool if one of the papers was more in the foreground. cool stuff!

    Thanks all.

    I appreciate the point about the head / face not being as finely developed as the hand (but fyi, he's not a robot).
