The first portrait shows The Cheetah sporting a human face with her mouth curled up in a ferocious snarl. This portrait retains her long flowing hair as she looks forward, ready to strike. The second portrait has The Cheetah in full transformation, featuring cat-like ears and an even more animalistic expression while fully displaying her fearsome and pronounced canine teeth for all to see.
