Steel Empires Fan Art!

My best friend Julia (the Kane to my Toria, as it were) regularly makes goofy comics of our friend group using ridiculous stick figures of us. Today, in honor of the release of Steel Magic, she made fan art for me! I’m sure it is the beginning of much more to come, and I will […]
