    Which of these image cleanups looks better?

    Image is from Generations toy guide Metroplex Art.

    The first one was just an improving contrast, and a clean up of grainy lines, and improving the tint and colors.

    The second one I also removed the shoulder cannon from the arm in the background, as he was missing the one in the foreground. Just to keep the design a bit more symmetrical looking. I thought the image should show either both or neither.

    But some may disagree and think it looks cool like he just had the one in the foreground torn off by Trypticon in the middle of this battle or something on those lines.

    I figured I would just post both and ask; who likes which one better? Also posted is the original image to compare.

    Thanks for the input guys. [​IMG]

    Sometimes after playing around with an image the lines seem to float away from the page, and it is harder to tell what looks better.

    The picture does look like he is involved in some sort of battle after all.
