Huh, I don't hate it. Not the greatest thing in the world (her tentacles look kinda flat), but it's pretty alright.

Though what really made the first one so great was how weird it was, and how it didn't quite match the proper proportions of the face.

I dunno, I think at the very least it needs a lot of polish. Kerrigan's original appearance (https://bnetcmsus-a.akamaihd.net/cms/content_folder_media/I25K073ZRE951408759292280.jpg) scared the shit out of me, I remember as a kid one time I imagined her face when I closed my eyes and I screamed.

The old art really brings out the hateful and sadistic nature she had in Brood War, in this one she just looks like normal Kerrigan but infested; the anatomy is all there, the green skin/dreadlocks, but she isn't the same person.

The old image is menacing mainly because of the lighting creating the shadows across the face. Kinda like when you hold a flahshlight below the chin and point it upward across your face. That and the creepy hair tendrils along the side of her face that either looks like a spider legs or clawed fingers enveloping her head.

If one can say such a thing about a hideous bug creature that infested Kerrigan is, the remastered one looks prettied up what with the light full on her face (no shadows) and tendrils pushed way back from her face.
