The top version is the one the client preferred as it was a bit darker color wise as she specified. I think this one maybe looks a little more like a comic book.

Super Hero Family Portrait
Another successful Etsy sale! This client was great to work with, provided lots of feedback and had a clear vision of what she wanted. Interesting enough she ordered from me after checking out The Comics Factory. A very popular company that also creates custom superhero portraits. One thing she noticed was that while they simply draw the client's face onto a pre-made body and background, I create everything completely custom for the client. And my prices are much more reasonable. Just saying ;) She was very happy with the finished product.
The 2nd version I did used cel-shading (only two colors similar to most cartoons). I kind of preferred it as the characters “pop” a little more. I’m curious which most people prefer. Please let me know. Note the difference may seem negligible to most people.
