Yes, the singled-out one is the best version of all! Looks really really nice!

that first one is really nice, but I would just suggest that you put the stem back in, cause it looks a little awkward without a stem.

Yep, I like the first one, and agree with Omeletteman that you should put the stem back in.

Hmmm.. I had trouble with the stem, b/c as soon as I switched it over to b&w it became too dark. I couldnt even differentiate it from the black background, and it looked a bit too weird to lighten the stem... Feel free to play with it if you like; I might mess with the stem again tomorro.

Thanks for the comments! I really appreciate all of your help :)

Messed some more with the stem today, and I went two routes with this one... one adding a slightly lighter stem that just seems to blend into the background, and also darkening the bottom so that it seems to just fade to black.
Critiques please!

Version #1 (before changes)

i really like it floating, well done for getting that from the original, if i were to change anything it would be to have a little moe texture in the strong highlight but there is still loads of detail in it
