Danger in the jungle

Here’s an illustration I’ve been working on for Kendra Kandlestar and the Search for Arazeen. In this scene, Kendra and her companions happen upon a stone guardian that is meant to warn them from going any further. Here’s my first version:

Even though I’ve been to a few jungles in real life, I really haven’t drawn them before. Even though I like the above drawing, I felt everything needed to be much bigger.  So I did an alternate:

It now feels a bit more tropical, so I think this is the one I will go for. Incidentally, the design of my stone guardian was inspired by the Korean totem poles I’ve seen on one of my many trips to Asia.
