There are many things to like about this shot. I love the background. The hard and soft lighting effects are very well done, and the cylindrical shape of the sewer tunnel, Xel'Naga temple, Battle Cruiser fuselage, or what ever war-torn structure it is, is a nice offset to Kerrigan's jagged blades. I also enjoyed some of the creative liberties taken on the design of Kerrigan and her "pet." At first, I thought this was a classic Kerrigan/pet Zergling shot, but that Zergling is missing a set of claws and has more of a Hydralisk/Lurker headpiece. I like that, as either way, it is unequivocally Zerg, and perhaps a mutation we haven't seen before. Kerrigan herself is interesting, as she actually looks fairly vulnerable in this posture, almost as if she's just heard something and is beckoning her Zergling to halt. The skulls in the foreground also caught my eye, as they almost appear to be melting through the misty haze. This gives me the impression of a Diablo or DOOM-style hellish scene despite the cold blue tones, as if the skulls themselves were still experiencing anguish. Great rendition!

I like this take on Kerrigan. There are so many wonderful textures on the environment and creatures. I'm a little uneasy about the pose, her stance looks a bit awkward.
