Here is the Patrick 5 star scale, or at least the one I made up.

Here they are individually if you want to do something with them. You know, like those not quite animated Bombcast clips we used to watch.

Patrick-1

Patrick-2

Patrick-3

Patrick-4

Patrick-5

So...What do you think?

EDIT:

fixed 3 star

Awesome job.
5-star Patrick looks like he's about to travel through time and/or into a space ship.

Good stuff. Some comments:

3 start Patrick is a tad on the negative side, just a tiny bit more neutral would be more apropriate imo, that frown maybe?

Hairless Patrick is freaking me OUT.

You know that they're planning on getting rid of the cartoon review pictures altogether right?

I agree with this. If not the frown, maybe make the eyebrows / \ instead of \ /. If you know what I mean?

Other than that, really awesome. I love 5-Star and 4-Star Patrick, especially. Great job!

He probably knows, but I think it's a terrible idea, at least.

@The_Nubster: I agree here, I think tilting the eyebrows upward would make him look a bit more optimistic lol. Other than that, they look amazing, I really hope they use these!!

Very cool, five-star Patrick is amaaazing! Nicely done.

They mentioned it in one of the Whiskey Media Radio shows. The reason being that the art doesn't necessarily reflect the content of the review. The example they gave is Jeff's 3 star art, which screams "Meh". Whereas 3 stars is usually meant to represent a decent game. Something along those lines.

This is cool, but I think 5-stars Patrick should be Rayman-Patrick from the Game of the Year stuff.

LOVE it! These are close to the quality of the official ones! (And I'm not saying that to be reductive, I'm saying that cause the originals are damn near impossible to top).

I think the reasons for getting rid of the review pictures seem resonable.

I still want the review pictures.

I think instead they should just make the 3 star pictures more positive. Maybe change the current 3 star ones to be the 2 star ones, and do the 3 star ones over.

Good pictures dude. But yeah. I'd suggest making the 3 star ones even more positive. Maybe give him a slight smile.

Great job! Too bad the GB guys seem hell bent on phasing out all of the review pictures at some point.

I think we have GBs new scale. For example, "I give it three out of five Patricks"

If this is the case then fuckin redo the art, don't get rid of it, it's just one step towards gamespot which is the last thing I would want

I think they should start to rate games in Michael Jackson songs already. Like, "this game is Thriller!" or "this game is Earth Song!" - much easier to distinguish than stars and comic expressions, if you ask me.

Seriously, though: These are great an on par with the stuff they're using right now. Also, it's news to me they want to get rid of these images in the future. I mean, it just seems such a non-issue and overall irrelevant to me I find it hard to think of any kind of reason for that. Who the hell would be bothered by those little comics? Keep them, they are an eye-candy if nothing else and fittingly crazy in a cute way.

Awesome job dude! Are they really getting rid of the cartoon review pics? That's a shame, they add a lot of character to the site and have always felt like a staple for me. On a side note, i think it would be hilarious to see an over the top anime style take on the current ones. Like that one episode of Futurama where they try out a few different animation styles.
