Yeah, the quick sketch looks better, not only because of the pose but because it's looser and has more "energy" in it, and all the mistakes are easier to ignore, But now that you have started to polish it all the flaws and things where your skill isn't enough are ten times clearer. The sketch also has a clearer "point of interest" as the lines in both sides concentrate towards the astronaut tightly.
But the most obvious this is that right now the astronaut is literally melding with the doughnut, and not holding it.
I went back and decided to think up something better. This is what I came up with. I was watching an old Simpson episode when I saw lard lad, through that would make a great illustration for my whole astronaut love donuts.
Then I was thinking of doing some kind of donut death machine. Some of the quick sketches just weren't working for me. Till I realized it would look better as a spaceship.
