what coloring style? Feedback requested

in case you don’t know ttrop does the character art for recent games here at svp. I was recently talking to him about implementing more soft shadows into his work.

which coloring style for the skin do you prefer? feel free to post why one way or another in the comments.

I would also like to say it takes ttrop longer to make art at this level and a bit longer than even that for the bottom pic.
