New Inks

These are a couple of pieces that I started yesterday.
This one is a circus train being pulled by a clown car.



I'm wondering if it needs a background. Nothing fancy. Just a pattern or something.
If you have an opinion, let me know what you think.

This second one is still a w.i.p.

It's also a piece that was done in color previously.
I am changing it for inking. 
As you can see by the hat on the top bird I am planning on adding texture and pattern to the piece. I stopped here to scan it so that I can save this stage so I can print it out on paper and do some experimenting before committing to the final image.
I need to decide how to treat the sky and grass and I'm not sure what I want to do yet.
Again if you have any comments, let them fly.

I don't think you need to add a background to the circus train. Unless it is large cloud shapes. It is such a detailed image, I think that a background would muddle the illustration.
