Portfolio Re-do

Recently, I have been pretty aggressively changing my portfolio (maybe "aggressively" is too strong an adverb, but I digress). My style has evolved a bit, and so I've been weeding out illustrations that I feel no longer represent what I do. However, there was one in particular that I still felt strongly about as an idea, so I've decided to re-do it. The original that I removed from my portfolio is below. It was a lot of fun to paint all those pancakes, but overall the illustration did not translate well from sketch to final.

By no means was it bad, it just got stiff and lost some life. The layout had some minor issues, as well. I changed some things around, and here is the new sketch:

I am in the process of painting the final now, and certain things have changed. I am adding more "messiness" and a few more flying pancakes in both the foreground and background. I also changed the frying pan/stove to a spatula/griddle to give the impression that more pancakes can be flying in the air at once as opposed to one at a time. To be continued! Wish me luck!
