Rapture Panorama

July 2003

 

So my friend Paul tells me that it took him a while to realize that Rapture was supposed to be a woman. Though I wanted her species to be a bit ambiguous, I never intended for her to be androgynous. So anyways, here's another shot at it. Same character design, better picture.

The chains aren’t entirely decorative, serving in the story I’d had in mind as a physical element of an enchantment to keep her ever-encroaching demonic flesh from consuming any more of her body, but ultimately… it was just a bit of visual flair.
