I personally liked second one with feathers, but because it was going to be really small, (1"x1") I thought third sketch was better, and art director agreed on it. And she wanted few changes on color (orange hair, dull blue strip on hat) So I started working on final on Wednesday, and I could finish it on Thursday night.
You can check this in Baltimore Magazine September Issue. Thank you Sophia for great art direction and a letter! It really touched my heart. :D
