Some cover art for Wildbow's web serial Worm. Check it out here

Featuring everyone's favorite queen of escalation, Taylor Hebert.

Maybe I will do a full comic.

Why WOULDN'T she be crying?

I didn't read the story. So, i don't know.

Ooooh, alright then. Should probably read it or at least the wiki for Taylor Hebert.

Only complaint is her hair seems a bit too straight, otherwise it's quite good.

This. And her face is a little weird.

Someone should do a piece for each arc of Worm! Gestation to Hive all the way to Queen up to Epilogue! Seriously!!

Wait why is she sitting in school with her costume on

Drama, cover art never makes much sense and tends to be metaphorical rather than literal.

Awesome!
A lot of worm fanart show's Taylor's tough and cold side, which is great too, but here it's like we're instead seeing the very human and in-pain part of her that her heroic/villainous identity grew out of to begin with.

Thank you!

Yeah, it's a pity we don't see more of Taylor being vulnerable/afraid since the defining characteristic of Taylor isn't that she is a hard boiled bad-ass, but rather that she is incredibly frail yet willing to overcome her weakness to achieve her goals.

really cool pose and armor!
wolfofragnarok's avatar
Thanks! Wasn't sure about the armor since the descriptions of it are fairly vague. Figured I would do a fusion of medieval night and sports equipment. Would have streamlined it, but Taylor doesn't really have a background in combat armor.

love the armor on this. Shouldn't her hair be curly, though?
wolfofragnarok's avatar
Thank you. Very true, I will keep that in mind if I do comic stuffs. I kinda like her hair being limp here, makes her look kinda sad though.
