Game character design process

I entered the Crusader Quest character design contest and now... I hear they're going to make my character in the game! O.O 

Super glad all these reiterations of the design didn't go to waste. Congrats to all the other winners (and to Lee and Vanessa!! Their Amaterasu and Isvara characters were so amazing!). 

Here's my finished entry and the design process leading up to it.
