She’s wearing someone’s skin; much harder to ignore then the little girl from “Apocalypto”.

Neat! I guess she could be wearing someone's skin. The Maya actually had rituals where they would skin a person alive and dance around in the victim's skin.

You didn’t imitate that consciously? 🤨
The floppy fingers on the original that you used as a baseline are from the skin of a slightly smaller man’s fingers not fitting properly.
There’s a horror manga that’s right up this ally, by the way:

Think “Apocalypto”, meets “The Abyss”, meets “House 2”.

Thanks :) I wanted to convey a sense of prophecy without words, a doom of disease.

You definitely succeeded.
