Please help guys, I should be done with this guy by now but I just need the purple to POP, I think. Maybe something else needs doing?

Heres how i would do it:  Mix tiny amounts of red and white into the purple to make a series of progressively brighter tints of the purple and keep highlighting.  Keep brightening the series of tints until the brightest one is practically white.  Then  put a very thin layer of the brightest purple you have on there right now (before adding the purple tints I described) over the whole purple area.  Then repeat the process.  The layers of purple will blend together but also look much brighter.

I would highlight the purple with hot pink.

 

I'd mix Quinacridone Magenta with Titanium White, but basically any eye-watering bubblegum type pink will do.
