not saying i particularly like or dislike the splash, just food for thought
No, it wasn't. The sneak peek gives the impression that she's hiding some menacing intent under her smile, and while she distracts you she's going to put some seeds in you that will eventually kill you (clever, infestor). The splash art gives the impression that she doesn't care about anything but killing everyone, and she's not going to hide it (brute and overpowering).
