tentacle painting

This painting was done as I went. I really had no plan. I think it shows haha. It started out as a small sketch in my sketch book that I scanned in. I haphazardly colored it in Photoshop, then happy with where it was going decided to keep painting. This is my first completely photoshop painting. I'm not too sure about the color distribution in relation to the success of the composition. I'm worried that the right bottom corner containing the tentacle is too bright and takes the eye off the face. I used Norman Rockwell's trick of using red to create a triangular/circular shape to lead the eye around the focus (i.e. the two orbs and the fabric tucked in the hat). I would really appreciate some crit. Thanks.
