This started out as a simple squiggly line challenge for myself. What's that you say? Well, it's when you draw some random squiggly lines and then use your imagination to make a recognizable image out of it. Thus the huge honkin nose (no, it was not an homage to Mr. Burns from the Simpsons).
I quite like it being in b&w. I think it suits the drawing.

Make the nose orange and you have one of the nicest snowman ever built by children.

5/5! His nose reminds me of a carrot :)

thanks B.O.B. it's nice to get some actual helpful critiques for once. I'll try out your idea and see how it works

   I remember the first time I saw this, I thought, "wowzah! This is fantabulous!" However, it still has some faults, nay, nit-picks...

   For some reason, his eyes just don't match the style of the rest of his face. I would suggest extending his upper brow, to help add to the cartoony feel with his huge honker. Either that, or pull his eyes back further, so they don't look so close together. I know it's not supposed to be extremely realistic, but the eyes or at least the placement/composition of them seem off with the current direction of the piece.
   However, I would agree that it would be best to keep it sketchy or black and white. And yeah, very Mr. Burns-ish...

I like the visual 'grey man' metaphor. Not to mention the character is really alive and breathing
