Blog #14 - Phoenix Wright Illustrations, Please Help?

So, I foolishly decided to start yet another Phoenix Wright character illustration (I guess I should call them ace attorney illustrations but screw it). This time it's Trucy Wright. I really love her magician look, and I think I did a good job on this one. I didn't fuck it up this time. However, I'm starting to find my style a bit flat (I know that's what I was going for but I'm bored with it a bit) so to mix tings up I applied some effects.
 
Already I've been designing these things like old posters so I decided  to go all the way and make it look actually old. I'm not sure if it's any good though. Can the Giant Bomb community please help me decide? I'd like to hear your thoughts on which is better. Plain or with sickening effects.
 
Here they are:

 Normal

 Weathered Effect

If you could post some thoughts in the comments that would be great. Also if you have any comments about my illustration in general. I think I did so much better on this one than with Ema Skye. I did an OK face this time! I'll use your feedback to make some changes and then post the final one. Thanks.
 
Edit: some 'in development' screenshots that I don't normally show.
