The first one shows the contrast really well, and you can see all the stitches, but the color is washed out.
The second one is more color-accurate.
I've put it down for a while, though, so I can recover. :) Filling in large spaces with chain stitch looks great and all, but I was frothing at the mouth with boredom by the time I finished the hair. Thank goodness I am smart and chose not to use the metallic thread again. I used a variegated thread that fades from dark to light yellow - though I did have to do some strategic stitching to make it look like highlights.
All in all, I am pretty proud of it. :)
