reworking an illustration, A LESSON IN REVISION

I am still not thrilled with the final outcome but it is FAR superior to my earlier attempt... I always hated it but have never gone back and totally reworked a finished illustration before...but this one just bothered me. It didn;t look stylistically like my other work and the text was far too digital for my tastes. I felt I had the Bush likeness down but it just was too bland. Not fun and cartoony enough -- not pushed enough in general. So I am happier in that regard, but I don't know, too much reliance on colored pencil, prehaps? I need to try working from start to finish in acrylics! A scary task for me!!!
