Rough versus Clean, which is better?

Updated: Available as a personalized nautical set of wall art here!

Yesterday, I decided the time had come.

I’d been relying on Photoshop alone for too long. I’d neglected the vector kingdom that is Illustrator and it was way past time for me to pay my dues.

So, behold, my first exercise in juicy Illustrator line work. It wasn’t all that scary. *sniffs and wipes teary face*

So, the question is… which version is better? The dirty, roughed up one or the clean, polygonized one?
