the first is looking good
the second is just real fun xD
although i think you already noticed this, i thought i should write some thoughts on the masked ichigo down:
Since you removed the lineart, I think it would be beneficial if you make the hair go out of the now nonexistant lineart a bit... make it a bit more unruly on the edges... and then the end of the jaw-line up to the ear... maybe make it a bit less defined? just fading the middle of it into the skin-color would maybe improve it... Another thing which might be more general for mask-colorings: maybe make the shadows go a bit more into a gray-beige? just a suggestion though ^^ dunno really how it would look on the pic...
I like the overall shading and style of it
maybe we will see another one of that with a result that satisfied you too?
Anyway, I'm gonna go and save it. Definitely a pic to keep
