The other chop is "cleaner," but still has its problems that my eye can't reconcile, particularly the arm that is being leaned on. This chop needs a lot of work for the clean-up to disguise the clone-stamp repetition... and other errors. But overall, I like the idea and "feel" of it better. Nearly a coin-toss because of these errors, but this one still gets my vote.
Interesting. The other nearly got my vote for the cleanup, but the repetitive clone tool on the ground made me shy away from it. I like the work you did here. The connection of the hat to the head is especially perfect.
