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:
What do you think?

Lol this captures perfectly how I feel about every millennial's obsession with the 80s!  It's like I feel like the internet exists just to rape my childhood!

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.

I had a older sister who was born in the 90's c: so she showed me a lot of 90's shows and movies and gave me a bunch of hamy-downs 

still was never there when it came out though ;c
LukeMill Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2013
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.

I was 6 when the 90's ended so I conciser myself to be a 90s/00s kid because i grew up in both decades and my childhood was dominated by the shows/games/consoles from both those era's, I remember both as well XD

I was born in 85, but it would be foolish to call myself an "80s kid" because I don't remember a damn thing from the 80s.
BlueberryDreamCloud Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013
But memory starts at 3, you don't remember preschool even? lol Well even if people could remeber the stuff from when they where born, I still wouldn't think of you as a 80s kid. I think the only people who are 90s kids are people born 1984 to 1993. That's just my opinion though.

I was born in '99 and I've always considered myself an 80's girl. I grew up listening to 80's and 90's music, so why not? I pretty much DID grow up in the 90's. I LOVE 80's music and style, etc.
XXXnycmangaluverxxx Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2012  Student General Artist
That really isnt the point. You're a 00's kid, you can appreciate the 80's, but none the less, will never really be an 80's kid.
MegaCherryCat Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I was born in 1998, and I remember alot of shows from the 90s, courage the cowardly dog, hey Arnold, johnny bravo, power puff girls, scooby doo, were my childhood. I dont understand why someone born after '96 isnt a 90s kid. BTW the 00s were pretty cool too.
AlexandraDal Featured By Owner Sep 4, 2012  Student General Artist
Being an "80s kid" or "90s kid" means you were a kid during that decade, not that you simply appreciate the era. Not that I'm territorial about the term -- it's just silly to see 12-year-olds talking about how "old school 90s" they are in their Saved by the Bell shirts and scrunchies. Too soon! And yes, the early 00s were awesome! You should embrace being a "00s kid!"~

Born in '95. I used to go nuts over Furbies and Ty Beanie Babies. I also remember watching the old Nicktoons like CatDog, Rugrats, Hey Arnold, and All That. I also remember Barbie! Oh, and I have some of the original Pokemon trading cardsfrom back in the day and I even watched the original anime on Cartoon Network. God, I loved those Cartoon Cartoons. :D

I'm not just a 90s kid, though. I'm also an aughties kid, too. I was also into Bratz and all the other trends of that decade.

So, yeah...

ahahahaha a furbie, mine was so cute! i'm a 90's kid too!
SkyGateCreations Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
lol technically I was born in the very late 80's ('88) but that placed my early childhood - early preteen years in the 90's, so I still kind of consider myself a 90's kid, since that last bit of the 80's was so early on in my life that I don't really remember anything about them XD
Kantola Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012  Student Artisan Crafter
I remember my friend's furbie going psycho, because the voicebox went bad on it. He kept saying "Feed me" over and over again, and his voice kept getting lower and lower. We threw furbie in the closet and eventually ran downstairs because it wouldn't stop talking. Demonic furbie, HELLO. You drew that Furbie perfect, by the way :)
'93 baby, WOOT :)
Ahh I remember my brother (an '87 baby, a computer junkie) arguing with my parents about Y2K and the computers crashing, the world ending, blah blah blah. My parents were freaking out, and my brother was chill. 12 years later, STILL HERE. Y2K didn't kill us!
I remember the first episode of Spongebob, Fairly Odd Parents, and Jimmy Neutron.
You're definitely a 90's kid if you remember the WONDER BALL.
chillgirl101 Featured By Owner Jun 8, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Gah, don't you hate this. I don't pride myself on being born in the late 90's (1996) even though I remember PLENTY!!!
:icontalkinggwahplz::iconspeechbubbleplz:I love the Furbie in the picture. My mom got one for each of us (me and my 2 other siblings) and she soon regretted it. I got a new one after battery acid destroyed it. I had it for a while, no matter how annoying they were :3
I remember all of the cartoons (even though my parents wouldn't let us watch them) and I remember my favorite pair of overalls going into preschool. Don't forget all of the ugly plaid dresses with huge buttons and stuff. Fun.

So, yeah, I'm a 90's kid, but I'm not a dork. This is like the first time I've mentioned the 90's in forever
I know my point doesn't sound valid, but if you can just trust me...

useless rambling...:iconemocornertamakiplz:

I have a hard time considering people born after '95 a 90's kid. I was born in 1991 and the majority of my memories are still from 1999 and later.

It's still mindblowing to know that people born when I was almost 10 are preteens now.
cluelesscomedy123 Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2012  Student General Artist
This is the main reason I hate Facebook. And I don't know why I still have one.
People at least 3 years younger than me (I'm born in 96) claim they know everything about the 90's and they keep liking these stupid pictures and sharing them because it says "LIKE IF YOU REMEMBER THESE ICEPOPS OR FURBIES OR SOME CRAP LOLOLOLOL ONLY 90'S KIDS WILL REMEMBER"

If I'm older than them and I barely knew about these (I mean, I did, but really I was late on the bandwagon at least with the 90's toys), HOW THE HECK SHOULD THEY KNOW

hah '93 :D I fit in
the best thing I remember is the old Scooby Doo cartoon and that I loved it :D
oh! and i remember the 1999-2000 new years eve (my parents couldn't go out celebrate because me and my siblings were too young to leave us alone :D
