I really like the middle panel. In the one before, there was some nudity, it kind of put me off, in a beautiful way, and then you took me into the bloody recollection of lycanthropy, and I thought, "once more, sex mixed with violence." -- now on this page, I wonder. Is that just me. -- no, it can't be, it is too common of a theme. Does that mean it is having to do with nakedness as opposed to eroticism. sex = nakedness and violence = nakedness?

humans are complex. Nice wolves.

Thanks for the criticism on the figure and backgrounds.

Why is the devil question mark your symbol?

Thank you for looking at and enjoying my work!

For me, the werewolf myth evokes two things: mental illness ("Lunatic" & loss of self) and female sexuality (monthly change affecting mood, behavior, & desires). I felt like mental illess fit the anthology that this was part of a bit better, so I focused mainly on that. But I included some psycho-sexual symbolism in the visuals. It is my hope that the sexual imagery characterizes her mental illness in the allegory, and emphasizes her beastial nature in a straight reading of this as a werewolf tale.

Regarding the devil question mark: since my comics are kind of all over the place in terms of tone and content, I wasn't sure what to do for a header. So I created a logo based on my internet handle. I use devilyoudont has a handle because I'd rather take a risk than stay with a known devil.
