X-23 by Rudy Ao.
11x17 acrylics and airbrush.
My third commission from Rudy, the theme this time being Innocence Lost as I
asked for a young Laura sitting on a pile of victims with a beautiful
butterfly landing on her bloodsoaked claws. The lighting reinforces the
idea with a column of light hitting Laura and the butterfly while her
surroundings are dark and shadowy.
The composition was partly inspired by a splash page from the first X-23 miniseries.
