War Paint

This is a sketch I've been working on since the flight back from Florida. It's got the most detailed background I've ever drawn. Not necessarily the best, but the one with the most fiddly bits in it.

Doesn't look so good in black and white; all the little figures are very stark against the white spaces. I plan to color the original with markers and maybe colored pencils; no idea how that's going to go. If it goes badly, I might try coloring it digitally, although I'm rather intimidated at the thought of digitally coloring all those little figures. O_O

Or I might try re-doing it on a larger piece of paper. This was done in my 9x12 sketchbook, so it's pretty small for having so many fiddly bits in it.
