...that I'm human.
I honestly don't know what happened to Josie here. It's pretty obvious that she's half scorpion. Beyond that, it's hard to say. Was she always like this, and fell in love with a human boy? Was she recently transformed? I don't really know.
I had this idea ages ago, and I've been trying to draw a decent scorpion-taur girl for a while now — Josie here is my third attempt — but I didn't have much more than "scorpion-taur" and "shy" when I started it. I started drawing it about two months ago, and finally gave her decent hands before posting her. I realize scorpions have eight legs, but somehow, she looked better with six when I drew her.
Poor thing. Looks like she really needs a little cheering up.Challenge!
