The Risen

Another miscellaneous character.  The inspiration to draw this girl came seemingly out of nowhere this morning, but I ran with it.  I’ve never seen a female werewolf design that I really liked, so I did my best here to show what I’d have liked to see.  I tried to keep a sense of feral, muscular power while still keeping her clearly feminine.

Amelia Clarks was a relatively ordinary high school senior until the time she and her parents went on a hike in the woods near her home.  Her water bottle was running low so she stopped to fill it in a small stream they crossed.  Things went uneventfully until the following night, when the full moon was rising, because she suddenly began to painfully transform, soon realizing the stream had been tainted.  But as luck would have it, she was able to calm herself down and keep herself from leaving her room that night… She was wearing the bracelets her boyfriend had given to her a few months prior, and her recognition and emotional attachment to the jewelry was just enough to keep her from losing herself.  She resolved that she would make the most of her curse from then on out.  After learning that the full moon transformation was unavoidable but she could change at will on any other night, she began to train herself to direct her hunger towards only those who deserved it.  Nowadays she spends her nights prowling the city in search of crimes to halt, acting as a rather unconventional superhero.

About the Author ()

Hi there! I'm a sophomore in college, and though I've only taken the occasional art class back in high school, I like to think of myself as a decent self-taught visual artist with some writing skill as well. I love fantasy, particularly when it comes to the fun creatures, so my characters may very well be something other than human. Nice meeting you, and thanks for stopping by!

  1. Huh, a superhero werewolf girl. She looks a little bit uncertain of what she’s seeing, but there’s a slight snarl that indicates whatever it is, she doesn’t think she likes it.

    I like how the jewelry helps her keep her focus. Very cool touch.

    Cool character. I LOVE werewolves. And I was wondering, with your permission, if I could use her in my comics. I’d give you full credit and everything. I believe that nothing should go to waste and I just don’t want Risen taking up space on the internet.If you have plans for her nevermind, but if I can use her I’d appreciate it!!! Thanks either way! Take care and God Bless!
