These two particular characters (although, I guess the crow isn't really stylized as a character...) are the same ones in my banner. I love drawing them <3
That being said, scanning in red is a nightmare - I learned a lot from doing this. Although I was working with one color, it forced me to think a little more than when I just use black. Hooray for a new challenge!
And I absolutely love the new colors I got. I converted one of my water-filled brushes to using red ink, so that I can have it with me at all times. The Higgins ink works surprisingly well - and it's the cheapest, so no complaint there. (I just wish it wasn't so smelly.)
