Why settle for one “Super-mode” when you can have two? In this one, she’s drawing forth a physical representation of her subconscious, a dark reflection that she doesn’t usually express. Not her evil side (the primary talent of those tentacles is actually bending space to catch and redirect almost anything coming her way Kung-Fu-Panda-2-style, making her the ultimate defender), but it does make her less pleasant.
It’s a redux, since I have shown her in this form before, but I wanted to redo the aura. It was always supposed to be fluid-looking, but it was like oily slime before, whereas now it’s supposed to look like sloshing acid.
It’s also my response to the natural aversion catgirls have for tentacles.
Everyone needs a “Super-mode”, right? This is Hale’s, a state where she briefly “collapses the distinction between her normal self and her higher spiritual self”. It also makes her tail ridiculously big.
Tera is Hale’s daughter and shares her natural talent at martial arts. But where Hale is more hand-to-hand, Tera is a master at archery. As in, that’s not a magic bow; she’s just that good.
I did this because I don’t think I quite got Tera’s build right in my first picture of her (she is supposed to look a little more adolescent), so I came up with another one. It also gives us another closeup on her face and the markings there.
