Dynamic Lines

I made a sketch for the Illustration Friday word 'Craving' (see before) and liked it a lot, but thought it needed to be more dynamic. I played with it a bit and added a slightly different point if view and curved most of the lines to make it more interesting. A curved line always carries more energy than a straight line (see after).
I also used a color palette that I normally don't work with, to give myself a challenge. I really think it's a great improvement don't you?
