Hurakan, step by step

I recently jumped into one of the challenges over at The objective was to design a character starting with silhouette, go to detail, then color, and ultimately work up to a book cover, using a provided template. The specifics and requirements of the challenge are here:

The character being addressed is the Mayan god of wind, storm, and fire: Hurakan.

And off we go!
1. Character Silhouettes

2. Character Thumbnails

3. B&W Character Detail, Book Cover Thumbnails
4. Character Color Rough, B&W Book Cover Detail
5. Final Character, Book Cover Color Rough

6. Final Book Cover + Art
And here's the cleaned-up version without the template and required formatting...

Thank you! I'm not terribly good at self-promotion, but I am trying to do better with that...
