Not too sure what's happening in this piece, but I get the feeling that's kind of the point. Whose who? Who's what? Who am I? Whose on first?? What's happening??? This feels like one of those games where you're supposed to figure out the rules based on context clues, and half the fun comes from watching your friends squirm in confusion while they figure it out. This drawing might be making me a little angry right now (in a good-natured way).

I like the overall tone of zaniness, from the sketchy style, to the rearranged cryptic messages, to Thorax hanging upside down from the top of the drawing. I can't stay angry at a playful drawing like this for long.

The drawing itself could stand to be cleaned up a bit. Looks like there's little grey specs all over the bottom half, and some overlapping outlines around certain features (ears, horns, etc.). I'm guessing this might have been sketched in a rush, so I'll leave it there. Thanks for the art!

I like the variety here, but as long as you had to sketch the character, why not handwrite the signs? Twist is probably the best done, but she's maybe a bit toothy? I'm getting Sonic vibes here. Cute variation on the phrasings.

This is a cute idea. Now, I've got no idea what I'm talking about when it comes to art, but the piece as a whole does come across to me as a little.... static? There's nothing really dynamic or immediately grabbing about any of the characters, outside of Thorax's Pinkie Pie impression. Like, If I were to take the silhouettes of all these figures, it'd look kind of plain. Sorry, I'm not being very coherent right now.

Overall, all of our characters are instantly recognizable, so big plus there. I personally think that Thorax looks the best. On the other end of the scale, Twilight's proportions look a little funny when I look at her torso a certain way.

Thanks for submitting!

Cute and cheerful, but if the artist intended a story behind it, I'm not sure what it is. (though obviously folks were able to apply ones to it)

The drawing skills were solid; while not the most refined in the field, the subjects were all identifiable, and nothing looked out of place. And while not the sort of composition that inherently benefits from being a sketch, but gets the point across, and doesn't really suffer from it, either.

Nice entry, overall.

Who’s Whoming Whom?

The prompt did naturally suggest Changelings. I considered the cliched “x is secretly a changeling” motif, and thought it might be amusing to ring the changes on the phrase, so to speak. It would also provide authors with a lot of potential hooks.

I chose some characters and sketched it quickly in the downtime on working on advanced magic. Thorax is upside down partly because his body would be too distracting were it drawn behind the signs the others are holding. :)

Thanks for the great comments!
