A woman drawn in charcoal crouches tensely on all fours,
arms wide as if proudly claiming territory, but with one hand raised in hesitation.
Her legs are strong, and her breasts are exposed animalistically. But the

A green dragon is super-imposed onto the body of the woman.
It glares at the audience, snarling toothily with a red open mouth. Its head is
raised proudly, and its wings are spread defiantly. It is ready to attack. But
the dragon looks partly mechanical, and it fits onto the woman like a costume,
with her head, chest, arms, and legs exposed. It is armor that simultaneously
protects yet burdens her.
