Alrighty - there's a bit of a story behind this. First and foremost, this was originally a commission for whiro [FA]. However, with my thesis looming, I had to refund Whiro and finish my writing first. (That is why the signature still says 2014.) I returned to this once-abandoned project last week, b/c I liked where I was going with it. As such, it is now my gift to Whiro, for his years of support. Literally everything about this piece is DIFFERENT in terms of process than my usual work (including use of a very limited palette).
Here is a step-by-step tutorial of this image.
