Cc is for Colorful Characters

One of my favorite ways to relax is to doodle images from a single line and see what appears. More often than not, my doodles turn into abstract people, and sometimes, faces. One of the challenge blogs I have been following describes these drawings as "one-liners" - a perfect description.

I use this method of doodling as a way to warm up - and then I like to color whatever appears  - this is my idea of relaxation. I drew and colored this lady with markers - and then decided to spiff her up a little with Photoshop.  My skills with this program have grown over the course of this challenge - I have learned to create many effects with ease. As usual, what I like best about this image is the color ... its always the color for me ... but so many lovely colors appeared I could not choose my favorite - so I am posting two. Which do you like best? Why?
