As a purely aesthetic piece this works well, both in flow and color scheme. The wording an background do evoke a vaguely art Nouveau feel, but the artist could have added more detail and a more diverse color scheme; e.g. adding blue details and some darker shades so that the tan/yellow is not so overwhelming. There is a certain fluidity that the figure hints at, but could be exaggerated more. The walking stride works well, but the figure could be displaved in such a way that it is not directly in the center of the card. The bloodstones could be colored a darker red, like dried blood, rather than mere splatter, which would add a greater range of color and greater contrast to the piece as a whole.
Art Nouveau also utilizes a combination of thick outlines and smaller detail lines, a technique which could be used to great effect here to create visual interest.
What do you think?

I like that the bloodstones look more like the real thing in this one, btw

This is really wonderful, and I love the idea. I am actually working on something similar! But I have not gotten very far. Best of luck!

I love this story and I'm excited for these drawings!

(I nominate Kevin. Or perhaps one or two of the longstanding OC theologians? Actually I nominate pretty much everyone in Night Vale but I realize you have other things to do with your time than draw a cast of dozens for my amusement.)

Kevin is in progress! Saving him for after the chapter where [spoiler] is revealed.

I wasn't even thinking about doing the OC theologians, but who knows, maybe. Now that I know at least one person wants to see them <3
