A Roman General ~ Scene from Asterix, the Gual!

This sketch was done during my days spent reading Asterix. The Romans generals, all well fed and lazy, makes a good subject for sketches. Though I loved Asterix and Obelix, the romans were better ones to be depicted because of their style and size. I had enjoyed sketching on Obelix too.
I liked this one more because of the expression that finally came on to the Roman General's face. The joy and content that's reflected shows the carelessness of the Roman Generals in draft ignorance of the other force. The pose depicts wealth, merry and happiness, all rolling in one!

Though I decided this to be a pencil sketch, wish I had coloured it.
