Oh Captain, My Captain

I don't often revisit old work, but when I received an invitation to enter a piece in the upcoming Star Trek show at the Q Pop Gallery in Los Angeles, I couldn't resist heavily re-working my old Captain Kirk painting. Looking at the original (below), I couldn't help but cringe at it's many, many flaws.
If you compare the re-worked version to the previous version I did a few years ago, you can see how I've gone ahead and tightened up the details and reworked the background completely. Personally, I think it's about a 1000% improvement and shows some of the growth I've had as a painter. The gallery show is scheduled for February 16.
