This is well done. I like how this looks. Only because I'm a very sketchy, and I like sketchy. I also like how realistic it looks.

The vision I see from this is family because of the big Koala and the smaller Koala on its back. When I think of this I also think of love and care. I think this because the bigger Koala is willing to carry weight to help the smaller Koala- that is love and care to me, only because I think my parents would do that for their loved ones if they needed help or just because they love them.

The originality isn't there much. I've seen Koala sketches and this style of sketch a lot. It's hard being original, but not everything is completely copied. The originality I see here is the placement. Also the way you did the fur on the animals. You really emphasizes different strands of fur, that isn't seen a lot for me. It's usually a base or shaded area with a few strands to make the picture 'pop'. Although that is the case I see nothing wrong with it though. The placement is unique because you thought of it yourself- unless you got it from a picture then that's a different story.

The technique is sketchy, as I told you I like the sketchy look. As I talked about before the fur on it is unique and creative. Something you don't come by a lot. I also like this technique because you can't see any 'lineart' or a 'guideline'. All you can see is the fur that creates the picture. That makes this really realistic which is what I am hoping you're going for..!

I have some impact on this because my family is kind of like this. As you know, what I said because my parents are very loving and caring, so I guess this kind of impacts me mentally. Not as much though.

NOTE: My ratings are a bit harsher only because I like the mix of what I like, and what I think needs work. Therefore, you have the inspiration to improve. I hope it doesn't get you down. If it confuses you or offends you, I apologize. I'm being honest even in the Word Critique as well.
