    not my best, but I liked the way it came out. what do you think I could improve on?
    what can I do to get better? (besides practice, what should I practice)

    You look quite grumpy.
    Avoid reading incendiary sad news and long flaming threads.

    PS: And yes, it is a joke, I actually don't have any good suggestion but the portrait looks quite good.

    I'd add shading, and maybe work on a more realistic/believable ear shape

    I made some minor changes that make the piece look a little more natural. I think you should study them, and consider why they make the piece more believable.

    One thing to keep in mind, is that in a cartoony style like this, you don't want lines to have a lot of complexity - the more they resemble gentle curves - the better.

    I really like your style imo.

    Looks really cartoonish!
