Some clients are easier than others. This one was tough to work with, but it this design was fun, easy to create, and really had a human feel, which worked well with the subject. The client went in another direction, but I liked this design enough to show.
The client was tough, but this element on personal touch was what he was looking for.
The end result is that the client pivoted and went with an angel design which I did not agree with, but was more his taste. Some clients have their own ways, even if I do not agree with them.
