Yeah, feedback on this one would most definitely be appreciated, we were wanting to do some experimenting with faces and hair and so it was folded into how we were planning to finally redraw the pictures for the site background anyway. Feedback will certainly be useful because if people aren't liking the expressions or whatever they can probably be tweaked before we actually change the background since we need to do the Black Court first anyway. That'll be Friday's filler so not a lot of suspense on that one I guess.

You might notice a change in how Starchild's mask looked; the way we were drawing it was kind of making it especially obvious that it didn't really make sense how Alex manages to keep it in place so we added a small bit around the ears to make it look a little more natural. Guess kind of an awkward time to introduce that but hey, better late than never I guess.

Will say on the hair detailing, the background won't have that regardless (keeping with the general feel of the purple tile we have now, think it's a good look, pretty understated) but still doesn't hurt to get some feedback on that as well. I actually kind of think it's a bit much myself, kind of along the right track but maybe not quite the right fit for us. It's something we're only just now really even looking into so it's certainly not some set in stone part of the art style going forward or anything.

Hope everyone had a happy Halloween and we'll see you on Friday!

Yeah, like Martin said any thoughts about how good/bad this looks should be made as soon as possible. Helps a lot to get outside perspective. Not sure how much I have to say about this, which is weird given I'm the one who suggested two-birds-one-stoning this filler.

Alex's design was tweaked slightly since it had been so long since we'd seen them. Tried to give their face a slightly boxier look, drawing on Young!All-Might for reference and their eyes have a slight point to them to make them look a bit more androgynous. Alex is always a really fun character to draw, so it sucks we don't get to do them more often.

I wanna say I maybe pushed to have Ropun included in this selection of background faces back when we were first putting it together? Not sure.

The hair seems overdone, Alex's face looks weird and Starchlid's mask looks weird.

Heh, gotcha, appreciate the feedback.

you might want to rotate the lineup more than one space for each new line as many of the characters don't get clear in the open shot on the sides
