Ronin retired in 2017 and passed in 2018 after a stellar career and a happy life. EOW 5-22-2018, RIP Ronin, you were an amazing dog with the heart of a warrior!
Scratched almost entirely with a #16 X-Acto, although I used a tattoo needle to knock back the lettering and in a few other places. Colored with ink: Derwent Inktense on Ronin, a warm grey Pitt marker on the line work in the black areas. See the Zoomify of the drawing here: Ronin-Zoom
