The A.I. Art concepts of Jose Rafael Cruzapagan III
The birth of Ara'ga
This was a unique situation where one of my prompts on Midjourney had majorly failed where the model had totally collapsed in on herself with a wolf into a twisted Lovecraftian body horror. I saw a spark of something in that tangled mess though and decided to keep iterating upon it. It strangely felt as though she was trying to piece back together some semblance of what she used to be, but couldn't quite figure it out. Eventually she reached a point where she started to take on an amazing otherworldly creature. A mutant werewolf with 3 jaws! I knew then that I had to save this creature. Sadly before I could finish refining her, I suffered a week ban from the platform and the original Seed / job from just before the discovery was lost. thankfully I was able to save several key images recounting her origin.
I'll be using these in the near future as references to redesign her as a werewolf aberrant of the fang. One kept as something of a pet by Granny Wolf, as she's the only aberrant she can stand to look at for any great length of time. I'm envisioning she'll eventually be able to transform but as some sort of twisted Chimera, where she'll have too many heads and jaws all snapping in different directions at once seeking the blood of her rival the Red Riding Hood Prisoner. Though I cant recreate the double jaw effect in MJ, I found that the 2 salvaged images work wonders in making half transformed female werewolves. Whose outputs make for exciting magic when mixed back into other failing prompts to salvage or sentence them to their final fate. I'll post more notable highlights hare as I discover them.
