KP Skin Illustration - "Plague" (Trigger Warning)

This skin was supposed to be released the week of/after the release of Trigger Warning, but it went through so many changes that it wasn't completed until just yesterday:


A little bit about this skin:
     - The skin is based off of plague doctors. I wanted to combine the crow motif the Trigger Warning EP uses with KP's existing look without completely turning them into bird anthros. Thought of a crow mask which then led to the plague doctor mask.
     - Here's the sketch concept for R and G:


The reason this piece took so long to complete was selecting a style. It started off similarly rendered to previous KP skin ills but it wasn't working for me - it felt too stiff. I redid the piece with a looser style and it was looking more like how I envisioned:


After creating this teaser image for this skin, all I could see it in was a really rough style:


And that's how the KP "Plague" skin illustration looks the way it does now! :D
