My entry for the digital carving contest held by ^JunkbyJen

and contest details here ~ [link]
Using the basic template used filters and adjustments and soft brushes to get the color and texture and I wanted, then used the smudge tool to paint over it. Nose and mouth are flames. Cat eye base used then colored in and smudged to get the look I wanted. Eyebrows are actually foliage brushes.
