I vectorized my ink drawing of the pirate. I like the sketchy texture, however I'm wondering if it would look better cleaned up a bit. Do you think I should draw it in Illustrator instead and get crisper lines?

I like it ☺

I like that it has a sketchy look. I think it fits well with the theme of the card.

I like the sketchy look. Does it look good printed? It's small enough it may not even show up that much.

This is a perfect valentine for boys. I think leave it sketchy.

It's difficult to tell without being able to zoom in, but at the posted size it looks great!

I think your hand-line work is great, but maybe fill it in, in illustrator. Cheers, Julie

I love it! I'm a huge pirate fan and I think this design is adorable. I think the only thing I would possibly change is the text. Maybe make the text and heart seem sketchy and rough-like as the pirate is. Make sense? Otherwise, it's wonderful!
