Space Is Cool by TankySina Space Is Cool by TankySina
This is the fanart I've been working on for a while for Markiplier. :) (Smile) 

It was HARD. Shading is HARD. 
I'm watermarking it to prevent from art theft...

Vision: I think you know what you were trying to accomplish . The whole thing has this sense of purpose about it that shows a great deal of confidence as an artist. However, this art seems a bit lacking in details in the clothing and hair, I think going back and detailing things like strands of hair, wrinkles in clothing, contours in the face and stronger lighting would be able to help increase your ability to express your vision.

Originality: I've seen similar poses and situations plenty of times before, and nothing really stands out to me as being strikingly original. The trope works here because of the boost your vision for the piece gives it, though.

Technique: your linework is very clean and smooth, which makes this easier to follow! However, the coloring and shading seem a bit flat and don't do much besides making the image look murky. You may want to try different layer settings or coloured to tint your shading and make it look less stagnant. The hands are also a bit off in my opinion, perhaps because they're missing fingernails. I think you should look at more references of hands or use your own hands as models, because Mark's fingers look a bit like rubber in this image. But the face is very well drawn with elements of anime as well as western cartoons.

Impact: I have to admit, this piece doesn't really click or resonate with anything for me. I doubt I'll be able to remember it as anything other than 'the Markiplier one I critique'd.' It may do some good to try some more dynamic posing or emotional charge to bolster what kind of impact it can leave on your viewers.
