One of the best pics of Virus I've ever seen! I just love his expression and overall how he's portrayed in this piece. :3
I really enjoy seeing everyone's view of Virus. While a lot of it has the same idea in general the different versions of the same thing are always so interesting! ^^
To me this looks as though Virus's patience had run out and instead of tying to take over Cry, he's just going to straight up kill the poor guy and anyone in his way. The dagger could be one of his more painful ways to infect someone. Not to convert them to his side but a method in which he uses to watch their data degrade and then be deleted in the slowest way possible.
:3 No problem, I like thinking more deeply about the different pieces of art I see. Many can be potential for story ideas or making you think outside the box of something you see a lot lately.
And to see Virus like this, makes me think of what does happen if Virus runs out of patience. And to me Virus is much more level headed, determined and very cunning in getting what he wants. Considering he can manipulate data and see into the world through the computers and systems he infects. He has a lot of patience to wait for his time to strike. And even if his plan fails, he never fails in coming up with something else to salvage what he has left to help him. If not then its back to the drawing board for him. o.o But never have I see him lose his cool on anything. Maybe become upset on a couple of things but never get to the point his calm thinking shatters.
So what happens if Mad's methods of 'kill everything in sight' is applied to the sly Virus? o.o
