The Chrysalis

well ... things didn't go as planned lol .. I was trying to get a response for blizzard about sending the entry, but didn't get none ... Technically i dont live in US or any of the eligible countries, but i have relatives who live there and I sent an email asking if i could submit an entry with their adress, but had no response ... and since there's a crapton of burocratic details on the contest rules, i guess it means no contest for me =p ...

I wanted to be part of it just for the sake of .. participating, tbh .. but, whatever .. happens =o

AANYWAY ... here is the image i was going to entry ..

Whenever i look for an image of Kerrigan, i see images of her standing there being awesome as Queen of Blades, or some distorted version with huge boobs as of any female character (whats wrong with those people ?! ) ..

Since i like both versions of her (cruel Queen of Blades, and the awesome ghost, Kerrigan) .. i decided to make her in between ...

For everyone who played starcraft one, that annoying Chrysalis you had to protect for a couple of stages, that was "hatching" the ultimate weapon of the zerg .... thats my version of what was inside =p

I thought about 2 different poses, but one was too much cliché (her in a fetus position) .. and the other was too weird to draw and wouldn't show much of the character .. so i decided for this one there she is kinda "attached" to the wall of the thing (her legs are folded behind btw, like she was kneeling .. but since theres a bunch of goo covering it, its not exactly visible) ...

I really tried to enphasize the agony of her, trying to break free of this "placenta" envolving her .. while at the same time in a more dreamstate (like her body is trying to break free even though shes not in complete control of her actions) .....

It was very hard to make some of those details .. took me around 30h to complete, in around 5-6 days drawing .. i'll post some caps and wips later on ... well, the silverline of not being in the contest is that i can finally post it here =)


WIP here…
