@Kimkate_Burnclock, @Titan_Candleburst, here is the illustration for the short story.
SPOILER @everyone, please do not view this illustration until the paper is released.
I went too dark (always do). Sorry the one boy's hair isn't blond. I am going to send another copy of this picture that is a little edited.
This was very difficult to interpret, and it turned out looking like a gang accepting a new member, lol. Also, I hooded the gang and de-hooded the main guy, because having a face draws more attention, and I didn't want the focus to be on the guys standing around the hooded man. If this doesn't work, don't be afraid to tell me. I have some time, I might be able to do another one. Let me know what you think.
