Crit: The pinky on his left hand is too large. There should be less lines on the items that are farther away to give them a "lighter" feel, or at least give the items in the foreground more contrast by doing multiple passes of hatching. It would serve him well to have much thicker lines on the bottoms of his face and arms, giving the character a sense of "weight." There should also be a small white outline inside the black eye to make it seem as if it is just the inside of the skull that you are seeing and not an eyepatch. Gush: Very nice hatching, and I like the goofy jaw and hat. I'm actually digging your black and white drawings a lot, and in the future you should focus more on your color studies. If you can master both, you'll really be a force to be reckoned with.
You do a nice job of adding texture in your work! I like that you made him with a crazy expression. It's interesting for once to see a skull that's not trying to scare every one all of the time. He looks like he's having a good time and I like the energy here. Fun visual.

All right, since you shared your art on my forum post, may as well comment on it! First off, I'm a sucker for The Corpse Bride, so I'm a little biased, but this is really well done. Pen and ink drawings are really difficult to pull off, even if you started with pencil. I've done a few myself, and they can be grueling. All the lines seem to fit--there aren't any extra or anything that would detract from the artwork. For next time, though, try to add a background to your work! They make any piece stand out
