The half-brothers will appear in the Shining Ascension series, coming to the Internet early 2015.

The rest of the action has been cut because it contains spoilers for the upcoming comic book series, Shining Ascension! As the deadline nears, I’ll be posting oodles of art and some teasers for the plot! Stay tuned ❤ Click on the pic for better resolution.
