Lavalle, what if you were working at Disney back in the day and Walt wanted to see the Mickeys you were drawing. Would you show this to him? If your answer is yes, that's cool. If you answered no, my suggestion would be the same that I would tell my students when they create promising work but it looks like it's rushed. Take your time, even when you're doing a simple study, and give each sketch the attention it needs so that the image has a feeling of completion.

Take a look at the Mickey Mouse model sheets on Micheal Sporn's blog...

Out of all that material, do you see anything there that looks like it was rushed?

Take your time when you draw Mickey and strive to keep the character on model.
