I like the use of color in the first one, but the second has a better feel to it. I think you should redo the colored pencil version to be more colorful, less pastel.

Was gonna post pretty much exactly what MaulingMonkey said: colored pencil looks cooler, but the text becomes hard to read. That black and white filter thing is a nice metric.

Pencil style is just fine if you want it.



But your implementation is poor. You need to add contrast and saturation.

You'll notice your colored version goes from areas of pure dark (the bundt cake and curved edges of fruit) all the way to pure white (other parts of cake, fruit highlights, frosting.) The colors are vivid.

The color pencil version has a nearly-dark outlines. The paper wheel approaches but never reaches pure white. You need to use the entire value scale from black to white. Similarly with colors, you need to run a broad range for saturation.
