lol.  
A few issues with which to contend . . . i.e., the tangents and pick-up lines that confuse the bird's beak, facial markings, tree branches and laser beams! and the fact that this happens right at what should be the center of interest (which is marked with an X, Oh!) . . . Nevertheless:  overall, nicely composed and rendered. :)

Thank you for that comment! I took a look after reading it and I think I saw what you meant; I do not tend to think about the tangents and pick-up lines - probably a consequence of being mostly self-trained, so there is a lot that I don't know and don't think off. Visual cluttering has often been a problem, I think, in what I've been doing; as much as I like to draw a lot of things when I can, I've also realized how much the effectiveness of the drawing suffers from it in the end. This, however, I tend to do naturally, so being in contact with the kind of reflection you wrote can, I guess, only bring new things to think about the next time I'll get involved in a composition that might otherwise end up as visually oppressive. 
Sometimes, I think I'm just uneasy with the big white empty spaces, so my reflex is to fill them up - but then again, if the drawing is correctly balanced, they'll probably won't clash with the rest.
So, much to think about, which means more practice. :)

lol! 
In literature speak of the three keys to writing well.  They are 1) revision, 2) revision and 3) revision!  Hehe.  Why should illustrators have it any easier?
yes.  There is much to learn which comes with time and experience.  But the process can be quickened by intellectual study.  Knowledge and skill are mutually conditioning.

I can think of not one piece you've posted as being "visually oppressive."  All are visually impressive.  And some are so cute and funny that they charm me completely.
