lol so here it is! : D
I'm actually happy with the outcome ^^
I wanted to redraw that one but I had no time and will. And, thankfully, to this contest I finally redrew it.
This contest reminded me that I wanted to draw this again and inspired me.
I hope I've improved XD

) - was drawn in September 8 2012 EDIT:lol I dunno why most of commenters like the first one. Ok I guess it's just because of sketchy look. But please notice that I had mistakes in the first one: the mouth and nose are off, the eyes and eyebrows are too high and the chin is asymmetrical and faces a bit wrong way.+ the ears and fringe look weird. And there are still more mistakes to talk about. Isn't it?
That time I had no ability to portrait the character as I wanted. Right now (in "after") the character has all emotions and look which I wanted to achieve.
It's just makes me wonder why would you still prefer the first one? If it's only sketchiness then why would it overweight all mistakes in that drawing?
Ah well you are free to prefer whatever you like more ^^ but it makes me a bit sad and feel like I didn't improve but disimprove. Is it really so?
PS: just if you wonder. He wears a shirt and under it there is a bandage ^^
