Penguins and Christmas

Here is a new Image from Limited Runs it's Penguin #1 
Colouring Penguins can be a challenge at times seeing you want to give them some sort of shading what I did this time was coloured him all up dark and then used a colourless blender to lighten the Ink on him and I think it works perfectly on giving him shades without using a lot of colours
I also altered the Ribbon by using some markers on the edges to make it blend in more
