    This is cool. I like the movement in the soldier and the darker burro makes him look rock solid and not to be budged. 🙂 Is that a wash for the darkened color in the burro, K?

    Thanks Leslie! I did it with two pens, one a fine tip pen and the other a brush pen that’s running out, and the latter is the one that makes it look like a wash. A little hard to control but less messy 🙂
