Ancient Priestess - The Birds of Paradise

I have mostly skipped Inktober this year. Once you have all the time in the world, you do not have energy instead. The whole life situation in 2020 is starting to tear at me. I'm tired. However someone I hold dear gave me a tip about Hexoween, so I thought why not. This is from the hashtag Hexoween - theme "ancient priestess".

I wrote down the following text as a concept:
"Eons ago; when the earth was still a young planet, the Martians guarded the cosmos. Their priestesses traveled between the worlds and took care of the birds of paradise which brought life to the planets. They filled the cosmos with peace and looked to the stars with hope that one day another race would come and take up the mantle as guardians. Always with the aim of safeguarding all life and the cosmic balance. "

I did two versions of the drawing. One with contour lines and one without contour lines; I personally like contour lines but they also have the purpose that then you could also make the tree, the bird and the priestess into sticky pictures. In any case.
Which one do you like best?
