Process for an album cover Part One

I recently took an illustration gig doing an album cover, the concept is about a blind street musician, whose a one man band, portrayed as some sort of multiple armed deity . It's not done yet, but I thought I'd post some process along the way. These two roughs were what we narrowed down to of about a half dozen. I really thought the top one had a great crazy energy but my clients preferred the second and given the concept, I'm not sure the first one was the best choice for the job.

You can see some refinements here in the pencil art and there will be a few more tweaks when I ink this. I'll post again after the inks and the cover design are finished.
