Revisiting Laocoon

So here are two approaches the same subject. The graphite one was done almost a year ago, whilst the red chalk one I did last night.

The older one is more focused on light and shadow, while the recent one is more about form; a style which some may find less aesthetically pleasing, but one I prefer.

I can see where I have improved, and where I need to improve.

Which of the two do you prefer?

They are both beautiful!!! I admire your ability and focus.

My personal favorite of the two is the first one because I feel your tonal values are deeper and more rich. Your lights and darks in the first give it a 3 dimensional feel. The 2nd one is still beautiful and still great use of values but I feel there is more detail and more depth in the first one.
