Welp, this is final product. I tried some stuff on this to make it as creepy as possible and I think I nailed. xD I creeped out both my siblings when they looked at it. My brother even made the cross with his fingers.
To be honest, I both love and hate the tendrils on this. I was going for a more digital approach, which for looks semi-solid. But I couldn't do that, that's like a level 13 skill and I'm barely scratching at level 5. XD; Though, my brother commented that it looked more like a viral Doc Oct... not exactly what I was hoping for... but I had to make do with what I have and know. :/ FML OTL
I didn't do much on the background (again, couldn't get it how I see it in my head) but also because there's enough going on that it really didn't need one. XD So I made a simple darkblue w/black cloud render background with an Onmi light. (I don't know I fiddled around in the Filter ->Lighting Effects and goofed around in it) I like it, almost looks stormy, which fits the situation. XD
I also did a shadow layer on Virus and erased a bit here and there (where the light hit) and added the blue highlight to give him that creepy, 'You're FUCKED' look. And tore up his clothing a bit to make it that he went through hell and got pushed too far.
But all in all.. I do love it. I tried out a bunch of different effects and ways to get it as I got it now and I am fucking proud I did this! And the pose and portions... kinda spot on.. no way in hell I can redraw this from scratch again. Which sucks. lol
Anyway, THIS is Virus' mutated form from the Sneak Peek. Memories of isolation, rage and terror just burst out like a dam and overloads him and shatters whatever sanity he had left. And this is what he becomes. Think of it as... Virus' viral code had an error, froze and corrupted and this is what we have. Fucking scary shit.
