Would you be able to make a one sentence statement about your main thoughts for each of the 7 steps to a finished image? I would like to understand your technical artistic thought process as time elapses on your work flow. I feel like there is some step missing in my technical art thoughts as I work. It is OK if you do not want to do that, since it can be very personal.
Anyway, it is an excellent image, and is full of wonderful imagination. Well done, Igor!
