Calvin & Hobbes, colored

I think out of my recent drawings, I think this might be one of my favorite drawings...probably because Calvin & Hobbes was such a big part of my childhood.  I would love to do my own strip/comic based on it, but copyright stuff pretty much persuades me not to.  Anyways, the final image differs somewhat from the sketch in that I decided to flesh out the background a little bit, which had me delving into some unfamiliar territory with "speed painting".  And I learned that I suck at it, and I'm the slowest speed painter probably ever.  It all came together at the end though, which I guess is the most important part.
