In early season 2, Patrick has Z shaped eyebrows in episodes with normal animation but he still has M shaped eyebrows in markerbob.
 
It looks cel to me. It still has the graininess in the background
The shots to me are much more similar to what they had early digital than what earlier Season 1 had. Re-watching Hooky, about 10-20% of the scenes are computer assisted. It feels like they changed the colors in one way or another.

Patrick has his M-shaped eyebrows for most of the episode ‘Your Shoe’s Untied’:

But he gets his Z-shaped eyebrows during the ‘Loop de Loop’ song near the end of the episode:

Despite being produced after Your Shoe's Untied, Patrick has his M-Eyebrows throughout Big Pink Loser.



Here's some examples:

(Patrick looks like his Season 1 design here above)

Yeah I think It's the same art style as Hooky
Maybe it started animation production before the others, and as a result had to go off by the latest model sheets at the time which had season one character designs...
 
These Buff For Puff frames make SpongeBob look hand-drawn. What kind of style is this? I love it so much!

I also think that Big Pink Loser is the first digital markerbob episode to be produced, it's the most off-model Early Markerbob episode

I think it was the first episode to undergo animation production in that season, as well as the first to finish. While Your Shoe's Untied, being the first episode ultimately made, probably started animation production later hence why at the end of the episode Patrick has Z-Eyebrows instead his M-Eyebrows...

SIngle-Celled Defense if it had a little more traditional MovieBob
 
This frame from the season 12 episode "Stormy Weather" It looks like this on the model that appears to be from season 9b
