Sketchabilities 112

It just seems wrong somehow, to take sandpaper and a distressing tool to a perfectly pristine photograph. But the background BoBunny paper, with its random layout of old looking multi-choice exam papers, looked old and distressed and seemed to beg the photo to be in keeping with it. So, I took to distressing the photo and am now glad that I did.

Here's the sketch and my take on it.

Some details:
