This is an illustration that I never posted for critique. I planned to do so but after looking at my sketch for a bit I really hated how it looked. So I started to modify it, fixing all the issues I saw after leaving it for a bit. I couldn’t stop myself from vectorizing it either.
I think it turned out alright in the end (despite that awful first sketch – what was I thinking).
Below is the reference, first final sketch, and final result.
