Strut your stuff

I was not at all happy with the last drawing I posted ("Real men have moustaches that wear their own boots"). As I was pondering the reasons why I disliked it so much, I flipped through my sketchbook and stopped on the page that was filled with this character. The doodle of this guy strutting across the page appealed to me because it had personality. 

For me personally, I prefer off-the-wall character designs. After all, this is cartooning and I'm not at all limited to the confines of reality...so why keep things looking normal! I have to remind myself to exaggerate proportions, and poses, and expressions. 

I need to strut my stuff more.
