This is huge in many ways.
Here are the 32 non-moderator characters of the Way of Moderation original character tournament, created by 29 unique people. It took me ages to do it- I had first to ask people to submit a character sheet, then I took each and every single person through a vetting process until I was satisfied that it was workable with the story and the other characters. Some people are more experienced than others. Some had delays. Some of the characters here have since withdrawn due to commitments but are willing to play a partial role in the tournament.
I then sketched all the characters and checked with each and every single person that they liked the representation given to them. This is, as far as I can tell, the final version of the lineart.
The plot is ready to go, but it is ever evolving on a day-by-day basis. Due to a reassessment of my work commitments, I've had to change my approach drastically, but since it's been more than six months since I started planning this project and getting it underway, I'm determined to see it through properly.

There are a number of funny stories behind some of the titles that I just decided to give the characters. Cenere will in fact play a slightly altered role, since Cenere is the co-host of the WoM.
* These characters had to withdraw due to commitments, but along with some others may play a partial role in the story nonetheless.
Well that's it. This will be the last major work from me for a while, as I'm going to be really putting my head down until the end of my course, then god knows when I'll have time to draw anything after that.
