Into Death's Grasp

So, you may have noticed that I've been incorporating a lot of borders into my illustrations lately (for no other reason besides 'I like border patterns'). You may also have noticed that the aforementioned borders haven't been great, but hopefully they get better and more relevant to the illustrations.

Also you may have noticed that I've been using a rougher paper lately to get a bit more texture. I may go back to the smoother paper and just Photoshop some of textures onto it, because I don't think it has ever looked right when I've scanned the images (the texture becomes too pronounced and the contrast between the light and the rough 'bumps' in the paper become too hard to correct). So that'll probably be what I'll play around with next, so I might not work on any proper illustrations for the next week or so (because I always have an illustration up every week...).
