Where is Osama Bin Laden?

This illustration was a cover of a magazine Krama. I made a pencil sketch, scanned it and put very quickly color in Photoshop to explain the idea to the editors. Although I liked the result, I planned to work more on that, but, to my surprise, they thought it was a finalized work and they were happy with it! After that, I had a good look at it, and realized that If I worked more on it, I'd probably overwork it, and, finally the illustration remained as it was.

The edges on the left side are the result of putting the color with the bucket tool over the pencil sketch. Many times the artwork is the result of lucky accidents, but it does not happen often when you work digitally...
