My Way: Book Cover

Before & after minimal edit
This is an illustration for a science fiction book cover. I enjoyed the process of drawing so much, I had no idea it will be turned down. So this is a rejected cover. The blame is not on any pornographic element, but editorial. Mainly the central figure did not mach the figure in the mind of the author. It sure matched the one in my mind, I thought it was a perfect representation for the character and his relation  to the rest of the cast.
Perhaps 60% of the time was spent drawing the numbers with ink, drawing-gum and white-out.  The book still got out but with a different cover.
I had no idea of what I should do with this drawing. I still don`t but meanwhile it stays here. What do you do with your rejected art?
Book is currently sold here
