Concept art for Jareth's 'hybrid' form. Vampires have both a human and bat form and can shift on a scale between the two. Jay has a fear of fully shifting so usually only morphs his arms to wings at the maximum, as he likes to wrap himself up in them when sleeping.He hates taking his bat form, and has only ever acheived a full shift thrice in his life. Bearing in mind his fear of change and inability to adapt, it makes sense that a complete reconstruction of his whole body is an idea he finds extremely discomforting. He doesn't recognise his bat form as himself, and treats it almost as a seperate identity, so much does he wish to be unassociated with it.He's not exactly uncomfortable in his undeath and the shapeshifting abilities that come with it but every now and then he stops and realises what he's become; he often forgets he's no longer human and these little reminders shock him back into remembering he's a vampire. I tried to capture that here as he catches his reflection in the blood, but I've never tried a reflection before so it kind of derped.Venom, Jareth Iera, concept and art (c) Olivia Brook
