I was told that cool guys don't look at explosions. To say that's where I came up with the idea for this image wouldn't be truthful and that's another thing cool guys don't do...lie.
Honestly, after we took this image the idea presented itself and grew into what you see at the bottom of the page.
I've had numerous people (more like 2 or 3) ask how I made this, so I figured I would try and deconstruct it. The steps aren't in the order they were originally implemented, however they are laid out in a way that makes more sense as to how everything eventually came together.
I hope you like the process...I know I did. Enjoy!
