“What the hell…?”
The idea behind Kate’s werewolf transformation was to make it smooth, but horrifying, while retaining some anatomical accuracy. After establishing the Beast’s basic design, I created a halfway form between it and Kate’s human form by combining elements of the features. The first half of the metamorphosis builds towards this form with the growth of hair, claws, predatory teeth, development of a short muzzle, barreling of the chest, and lengthening of the spine. These changes lay the groundwork for the more radical alterations in the second half.
