A little excerpt from my current sketchbook, which is soon to be filled.
It doesn't really look like a manatee, but here's why I decided to call it that way:
- the derpy face
- the aquatic theme
- the flippers
I don't sign my sketchbook pages anymore, so I added that in PS. ^^'

Un petit extrait de mon carnet de croquis actuel, qui sera bientôt rempli.
Ca ne ressemble pas beaucoup à un lamantin, mais voilà mes raisons pour le choix de ce nom :
- la trogne un peu bébête
- le thème aquatique
- les nageoires
Je ne signe plus mes pages de carnets, alors j'ai rajouté ça dans PS. ^^'

I love this! I find more of a saddened perhaps distraught look on it's face than that of a "Derpy" one that you mentioned.
It has a feel of loneliness....abandonment, perhaps that of a loss? I find the emotion in this is Very high and can somehow relate to this.
Perhaps it's in the way the chin is drawn up or perhaps because of the eye's being covered....or maybe it's just in the pose.....etherway, there is a very strong emotional value here and I like it!:)

I was really confused upon first reading your comment, but I can see why you feel this way, now. I always believed it looked derpy because what you perceived as its nostrils were actually his eyes, in my mind. This, of course, made it look incredibly ridiculous to me.
And then, I saw it the way you did.
I had no idea!

Thank you for making me see this in another light!

....Hmmm, I see what you are saying now. Indeed looking at it in "That" light it does look a bit Derpy.
But I prefer the way I see it best.:) Indeed it would appear there are Two ways to interpret this work......Very nice!
