Spending more time on something

Thought I'd share the "before and after" on this concept illustration.  I did the initial 2-3 hour speed painting back in May for #maysketchaday, and this week I decided to revisit it.  I'd guess I've spent about another 15 hours on it.

There's nothing "wrong" with the initial painting, in fact, I quite like it - but there's no denying that if you want to convey more detail and information, the additional time certainly helps!
