Buttonface process

Here is my piece for the December Super Awesome Art Challenge Buttonface. I've been working with this style a lot more recently. I designed a few brushes in illustrator that help me add a little texture to the work. I also work in paintings I've done for additional texture. It's a fun way to add some character to something I don't want to be too graphic and I don't feel I need to overly render.
Buttonface: 16.5" x 11"

Here's to ten-fifteen minute pen sketch for the layout. The detail was added as I went.
