After work tired thought scribbles

I'm struggling to enjoy drawing this guy. He's to generic in my opinion. More so then the characters in my first post. I'm trying to evolve him into something that i can enjoy drawing but that is also appealing to a 'target audience'.

Look at these drawings below and tell me what you think:

All these were done after work, so i was pretty tired and my mind wasnt working to well. So thats my excuse for the shoddyness of these drawings.

Here is my first attempt to make him more of a fun cartoon character that i enjoy drawing. I dont like it. Its butt ugyly. Nothing seems to fit or have any defining personality in my opinion.

Swiftly moving on. I prefer this...but only by a little bit. One of my problems is that i like exteme expressions to much. So when i have to draw something slightly subtle i get bored and agitated. So i have to try and discipline myself. This drawing here wasnt referenced from anything..and it shows. I usually use my own face when i refeence for the extreme expressions. So to me, in some cases, they have slightly more belivability even though they are more extreme then this one below. But,as a plus, i think the shapes here are working a lot better then the one above.

From here on i was starting to get tired. So my drawings begin to fall in out of proportion and different forms of expressions. I like the body on this guy. The head is a mess.

I like this.

So though many failed scribbles i started to get mad. So i needed to unwind by drawing this character in this totally wierd expression. I had a lot of fun drawing it but i doubt i will ever be able to...or be allowed to put this into my animation. I might sneak it in. Even if it was just from a frame or two.

So after venting all that rage on the previous drawing i believe this chracter eventually began to take some form. This isnt great. This, like all the rest is another scribble i cleaned up. But i like the body and how all the different shapes and forms work with each other. I just got to work on putting both feet firmly on the ground and actually drawing both arms in.

After drawing for so many hours. I scribbled down some ideas for a quick storyboard idea. If you can even read this retarded spidery writing then your one of the first who can. I need to look over this story again. I literally wrote it down then went to bed and havent looked at it since. But its all part of back up work.

Thanks All.
