Oh heyyy I sticked out my art block and decided to draw a “what if” picture: What if Cheshire was a Barbarian instead of a rogue?
I write rather grim s*it/horror/dark fantasy, and I like my characters to be pretty diverse. This makes it impossible to avoid situations when a member of a marginalized group is a villain or at very least problematic/goes through tragic things. I don't want to write fluffier stuff, and making every able-bodied/neurotypical white cishet a kitten-kicker doomed to a horrible fate to turn up the contrast would be awkward. Any advice?
