I Critique this because I found it on Critoons, and the Commentor before me just said, "I love this. That is all" and I thought you wanted more.

I wish there were more of an Artist's Comment to go with this, just to make sure my interpretation matches your intention. Now I just have to go off of the fact that I found this in the Comedy folder and get meaning from that.

Vision: Well, it definitely reflects "a point of view, theme or idea" I'd rate it higher if I were totally certain of what that was. I'm thinking though you must've seen a few too many people claiming to be 90's kids, and it's interesting to me because I really haven't seen anyone bring this up, so that leads me to the next thing:

Very high score for Originality, because I haven't seen this subject idea done before! :clap:

Technique: I can't complain about it. Nothing to complain about. I like how you handled the lines and color of her hair well. It looks like in her ponytail the black blended with the brown. I don't know if that was intentional or not, but I like it!

Impact: I can't say this impacted me much. The main reason it jumped out at me was because I was looking at a bunch of things that I couldn't critique, trying to find one I actually kinda could, and this one stood out to me for that reason...

That is all! :)
I leave you with a dance:

I was born in '94, so I'm a late 90s kid (since I don't remember anything from my first two years of life) and I remember watching shows like pokemon, digimon, dragon ball z, gummi bears, scooby doo, and a bunch of others who's names escape me at the moment. mind you, I mostly grew up in the early 2000s, which honestly wasn't that bad, not much had changed from the 90s at least until I got older (around 11-12 years old) but at that point I had discovered the internet, and drawing, so I mostly kept going back to the shows and movies I watched as a kid.

Born in '92, and I consider myself to be a late-90s, early-Noughts kid.

I used to hesitate to call myself a 2000's kid at all, only because that was the time things in my personal life really started to go downhill. 2003-2005 were the absolute worst years in my life. So much fucking harassment from my peers that I disassociated myself with everything modern pop-culture and I turned off the telly, and listened to the oldies radio as an escape.

But some good things did come out of the 2000s. Even if the entertainment was inferior, lots of great movements and nonprofits that benefited me as an autistic woman. Neurodiversity-oriented material I would not have been able to find as easily have I been born 5 years earlier. How lucky I was to stumble upon this at the time that I really needed it.

I know this sounds retarded, but I was born in 2000, However, until 2007, I've experienced many MANY things from the (They just happened to be there) Life was also joyful for me. This time period will always have a special place in my heart.

What really gets me down is that there are people in their 20's who were born in the 90's. I'll make a reference to a film or TV program at work. And then I realize from the blank stares i'm getting, that most of them are too FUCKING young to know what the fuck I'm talking about! 

"How can you not know Ren & Stimpy?!" 

"What? No, it's fuck all like SpongeBob!"

And then like a total dick.
