This is really cool! Did anyone else besides me see Fado and Laruto?

Great illustrative style. I like the limited coloring, and the thick outlines, and the movement of the characters.

Thanks a lot for the appreciation and the detailed comment! I probably work best when I keep my style more graphic.
