Very well done Caricature & lighting ...
You assume much. Here is the crit: I would have modeled the face more like the body and background. That is, to relieve some of the detail in favor of softer gradients that were already used through out the piece. Give it the same illustrated look used in the other 90% I know this is a caricature, but the head is far too large. The exaggerated features should be enough to convey the caricature with a much smaller overall size. If it has to stay so large, other things should also have exaggerated proportions, not only the head. The money comes from a nice focal point and helps the composition, but could be used to say more. Perhaps if it came from the building, or fell like rain. I would suggest using less as well. Some of the darker bills in the shape of a crescent in the top right are too distracting. Well done overall. Caricatures do very well here I see, and this will be no exception.
You asked for a critique right. I don't understand.. Perhaps there is a language barrier. It's just I never said I liked it, and you assumed I did. While it is technically proficient, I for many reasons do not have a fondness for it. So after your comment I replied with the critical input you asked for. If I didn't have respect, I would have not spent a half hour giving you a very comprehensive critique. This is why I just keep my comments to, nice and yay. People are far too sensitive. That and google translator probably doesn't help.
Freaking cartoon work, lovely composition I like it
Great texture on obama, nice caricatured done with well expressive face, good to see all the dollars falling over him Great composition of the colors and lighting effects perfectly shines the face of Obama, I like the freaking news link and the perfect match of the image with the dollars sanctions like this entry hope for the winning a gold

Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi’s death may be a war crime: ICC Member reactions:
Impressive work. Though a bit too bloody
Very well done, and I agree with Newsy on both accounts
Congrats on the Wood PSM . . . emphasis on "impressive work"
Cool chop Mandrak.. Thats' one less nut case to worry about in this world...There's no war crime (in my opinion) to get a raging lunatic out of power, even though they might have used less than ethical means to get him out. Congrats.
The armed, elusive and aged bank robber, known as Geezer Bandit, has hit 12 California banks since August 2009: 10 in San Diego County, one in Temecula and, most recently he robbed a bank in Bakersfield.
The FBI announced Wednesday the reward for helping to catch San Diego County's most notorious bank robber has reached $20,000, but they're getting the opposite response as two growing Facebook fan pages are actually cheering the bandit on.
“Just because he's getting this attention does not mean he is someone that should be idolized or glamorized in any way,” said Darrell Foxworth with the FBI's San Diego Field Office.
But posts that say “I'm down with the Geez! I'm a HUGE fan of the GEEZER!!!” and “Git them banks!! they had it comin',” are clearly cheering the bandit on. The bandit also has a page on Wikipedia that details his spree. As one fan said "The geezer will come back before Chirstmas, need cash for presents."
