Human Afflicting Cordyceps Fungus (Update)
This is an up a followup to a post I did a while back. I always thought I should do a bit better version the original was quite rushed. And now a video game called “Last of Us” is coming out with a similar theme, so I figure what better time to do a more polished version. The original write-up an artwork can be found here.
This scene is the damp dark places the infected gravitate to. This specimen is in the final stages of the infection and will soon burst out of this isolation, fueled by adrenaline and the human need for help from others. This panic is the fungus’s way of propagating. The host searches for help and in doing so infects all in its wake.
