I prefer your current one. The stock is uninteresting and there's too much empty space. Don't get me wrong, I love the subject matter itself. My crit? Get a more interesting stock (a better pose would be a good start) that takes up more space.
I know what you mean...and you're right. But I'm trying to keep using ps, and not land in one of those artist's blocks I've had so much already...if anything this'll keep me going at it, and hopefully land a new style in a while, like I've done countless times before. Thanks for being honest.
