Paleo-Seahorse - Cartoon with Color

Playing around with cartoons today.  Something like this.  The paleo-seahorse definitely needs more visual interest.

To make the cartoon I took a scan of the block and played with it in Paint Shop Pro.

  I greyed it, increased contrast and made a negative image.

Then I printed up a handful and pulled out the colored pencils.  Honest I was really working.  ;-}

This is going to be another fine piece, Ellen... Are you planning a reduction with this also?

Thanx Diane. No, it's nearly finished as it is. I'm just carving a bit more detail, then tapping on a few spots of extra color. My version of white-line prints.
