Finished With New Little Donkey Miniature Painting

I think I am finished with my new illustration ("Little Donkey") for our childrens book The Cat's Meow

After many layers of colored pencil, delicate scratching through the layers and the addition of some white acrylic, I think I am finished. The author and I decided that little donkey's previous expression was a bit too sad, so hopefully I have lightened his mood.

Here is a a step by step slide show of little donkey:
