Drawing Detail

This is based on an older drawing I made for an unpublished short story several years ago. It was a science fiction story where the dying soldier was wearing all this modern weaponry and a gas mask. I decided to do a retelling of it this time with him in Civil War dress and rifle. The original drawing was also done digitally in grisaille washes, so I changed that this time to all ink on paper. The finer lines are made with an archival ink marker, but the darker areas were from a steel nib, no brushing. My fingers are still a bit numb from all that scratching, and I think I may need to buy some more ink. The detail image is approximately actual size, and the whole drawing is about 10 x 12 inches.
