I'd like to take a moment to introduce the first concept design for Heylyn Yates aka Ai Yuanlin Ying aka The Butterfly Dragon.
Again, the image was created with a variety of tools, including the dazzling Daz 3D Studio, and the amazing Adobe Photoshop, and the great Gimp 2. I'd also like to thank ShareCG and specifically the users amy_aimei (ironic that her name bears a similar resemblance), Kimber and AnIronButterfly who have a variety of work there as well (though I only used Amy's AiMei).
The amy_aimei's morph set makes up 70% of the facial appearance of this concept for Heylyn is from Amy's morph set available on http://www.sharecg.com. Thank you very much for your sharing your talent and your art. Most of the image was created in 3D with the Butterfly Dragon's aura being composed in Photoshop and Gimp 2 in this version. The final character will not have physical wings as part of her costume. Her body is encompassed by an aura as a side effect of the SY-349 formula. This concept picture is actually just before her first encounter with the Dragon Butterfly in the abandoned warehouse. Heylyn's casual and work attire is generally a mixture of comfort and expression, with a little bit of her playful side too (as she is quite attractive).

Next for design concept: Alicia Westen and then possibly Warai, Valerie or Norler.
Thanks for reading the stories and there's some more twists and turns ahead. Thanks especially to the Women who inspired these characters.
