I start by designing the creature. 
I get a mental picture of what I want it to look like. 
Then I'm off to the races. I usually start with the head.
My pencils are really loose.

 I continue onward down the body. 
I'm using Microns to ink. 
My big secret is how I get my line quality is...
I double up on my inks. 
Now its time to scan, I do black and white 400dpi.

 Photoshop time!
I'm going for a cool color pallet. 
I flat out my color scheme.
 Add highlights and shadows.
 The image was provided by the talented photographer:

Composite into the shot... some color grading, shadows on the ground. 
Added some breath steam to show how chilly the scene was.
