The Taxidermist's Dilemma

Hello all you good lookers out there.
I've just finished with the White Cloud Worlds workshop here in Auckland. The workshop lasted two days and I tried my best to get a finished illustration in that time. Ben Wootten and Paul Tobin had really great feedback throughout the whole process. From how to strike the viewer with an emotional response, to little details within the composition that will add to the story.  Thanks a bunch guys!
Above is the process from thumbnails to final piece. Cheers to everyone that I met!
