Was just randomly sketching after knocking out a bunch of Birthday requests that piled up on me. and really liked how this pose was coming along.
The amazing Wereworld helped me out with a quick draw over that helped me to better zero in on how to portray the anatomy.
The final version is a mixture of the 2.
Concept is that she was a soldier or guard of some sort who had been infected, and attempted to destroy herself before she could become a threat to her loved ones.
Not realizing that major self inflicted wounds causes the body to go into an immediate out of cycle shift, locking out her human mind to protect itself.
Causing a sort of wild berserker mode. Whats worse is with the sword embedded into her body she wont be able to shift back into human form. Becoming a true monster.
