Good Bye Sticker Finished

I'm working on a series of stickers, trying to find ideas with the use of words and expressions of everyday use, that can be represented in many ways; with characters, cartoons, and objects so their meaning can be sort of multiplied by the people's interpretation. For example, the "Good Bye" sticker below, can be meant in a happy, nice way to your friends or even a sarcastic "I don't have time for this way." That's why I'm trying to leave the concepts very open so they can relate to as many people as possible and maybe provoke a conversation topic.

Technical:

I created the original sketch (see the previous post) but made some modifications afterward; I wasn't liking the face of the character. I felt it was too corny, sort of weird. I'm happier with the results now.

The final sticker was done with SketchBook Pro 7 with a Wacom Bamboo tablet on a Desktop Dell PC. with Windows 10. I used Adobe Illustrator CC 2018 to create and colorize the vectors and in the end, CorelDraw X8 to create the "Good Bye" lettering and the sticker white contour and clear background simulation.
