I started on this piece last month with the intentions of posting this on Halloween, but alas those plans were cancelled when my homie curtsibling inspired me to create Sophie Von Hammerstein.  I finally managed to finish it between breaks at work and now I'm posting it. Carpel-Tunnel again reared its ugly head so despite its flaws I'm not touching this damned thing again. :lol:

But here you go. Some old faces as well as a few new ones are looking at a spoopy book! What are the contents of said spoopy book? Only they know for sure. Regardless picking characters for this piece was...kind of difficult. While Vistyne and Ryan were shoo-ins, there were so many others I wanted to draw in such as:

Abaddon
Adramalech
Anarchy
Ares (I need to note WorldsandCenturies on this before I submit ANY art of this guy.)
Astaroth
BEO
Cronenberg
Cybille (even though I just created her. :lol: )
Eddie
Ezha (Since he's my oldest character I feel particularly guilty about not including him)
Grim Reaper
Hellvetikka
Lucifuge Rofocale (or almost any of the Rofocales for that matter).
Marion Reaper
Mateo
Noctem Aeturnus
Operation Bob
Pyretta Blaze
Raven
Sedva (In all honesty s/he should have been in Vistyne's place given hir importance, but...yeah)
Señor Licky
Serendipity
Threnody
Zhivago

But instead you get stuck with Hotaru Thodt, Michael Revok, Ryan , Plague Doctor Timmy, and Vistyne Sinestora as well as :new: characters Dexter Winterheart (those to whom I linked the first chapter of my novel for critique may recognize this name), Laverne Berkowitz, Punkin, and Syndael. I'm sure I'll include the characters that didn't make the cut here in future group pieces along with some more new characters, so...stay tuned?
