And I was ok with the image as it stood... But I fancied a bit of app mashing so flung the image through ArtRage, starting off with a texture layer (below).
I also tidied up parts of the image which the zoom in ArtRage helped with. Zoom has never been Paper's strength. It's better now.... But it's still not as flexible as a full on art application.
The mouth is my favourite part of the image. The entire thing isn't my style, per se, but I'm a huge fan of Tim Burton, Dave McKean, Scottie Young, Bill Sienkiewicz and so on and was enjoying the creating of the picture with an eye to the greats and how they've influenced me.
