Cyra's had her share of redesigns, of course. I can't quite place an actual number to them. Going by year is good. cX
In this one... a few things have changed. Nothing major... just her entire genetic lineage, which goes along with a change to her backstory/her world as well. Setra's still her mother, thus she still has emnon and phiox in her blood... but the emnon species itself got a few revisions, as well.
So: Cyra now has five fingers on all her hands, and the structure of the claws on her "main" pair have been changed, so that each individual nail is visible (now the sheathed claws are only featured on erioch, where they still have a purpose.) Her nails on these hands are orange.
third eye and,/strike> chest-mouth is gone. That's a pretty major one. Her skin is also thinner, now, though I'm not certain if that provides any noticeable changes, here.
Her markings are simplified, stripes on thighs and so on are gone, replaced by orange markings on her back. She now has a small amount of white on her chest, as well. Her feet now have four toes, but are otherwise the same.
Actually, I'm unhappy with this. LOOK FORWARD TO LESS EYEBURNY COLOURS. And the third eye again. Yeah.
I've been meaning to make some changes to her for a good while. Last night was one of those nights when it almost felt like she was demanding to be drawn, know what I mean?
Oh! One more thing! I've always thought having the whole... you know, nightmare form or monster form (though I'd still consider Cyra a monster gal, just... a slightly more subdued one...)
sort of a fun thing to have for ocs.
So if Cyra ever pops up in a new deviation with dual grins and her lovely third eye, well, that just means I felt like drawing the more monstrous Cyra. That version just doesn't exist in-story. *Not that I've posted anything from said story anyway.
It's in comic form, and I won't start it until I've finished my current story project.
I'll be doing test panels, though~
