Anything at all can happen just before the sunrise.

Whenever I see Reaper76 fanworks of Gabriel teaching Jack Spanish, it inevitably reminds me of the scene/song from In the Heights, Sunrise, where Nina teaches Benny Spanish. Forgive me, Lin.

This has been stuck in my head for so long, I finally had to just draw it and get it out of my system.

I also love how the tone shift totally makes sense in the context of the musical, but here it looks like Gabriel’s just being moody.

[Bonus non-song scene also from In the Heights under the cut:]

I wasn’t satisfied with the amount of detail I was able to squeeze into my maskless 76 design in my last fanart, so I wanted to give it another go… but I also felt like drawing fluff so have a Reaper76 smooch.

I like to think that Jack′s nose and part of his jaw were reconstructed and that Gabriel has shadow stuff still shifting in/as his skin when he’s in human form or something?? And I adore blind!76. <3

D.Va might not be trying to make fun of him here, but I am. D.Va’s just trying to be nice to the team’s awkward dad Reaper!!! Playing with super nice Reaper players is one of my favorite things <33

The whole time I was watching @therealjacksepticeye, Arin, and Barry play this game on Grumpcade, I was like, This is it… is this Gabriel’s favorite game……

[dramatic voice] And then Hanzo bought a rice cooker asap. McCree looked at the box, confused. “It pays for itself,” Hanzo explained.

I didn’t know frozen rice squares were a thing until I saw this A++ post from @crotah, unless I just ignored it and forgot, so I looked it up and saw microwavable rice. I was just… so confused??? So I thought, what if McCree tried to stock up his fridge before Hanzo moved in?

It is possible for a beauty to love a beast.

And then Jack was like, “Okay, now I’m really suspicious…”

AU where Jack and Gabriel get to be old and happy together or something!! Inspired by this lovely post by @edgewatch76. I’m sorry that it got infinitely cheesy in my hands!!!! OTL

I just wanted to do one more little In the Heights/Overwatch comic with a bit of young McHanzo. This time with Gabriel as Benny instead of Nina, McCree as Usnavi, and Hanzo as Vanessa in the song The Club (volume warning).

The idea for this crossed my mind while doing the Reaper76 comic set to Sunrise, but I didn’t want to do them back to back, haha.

Again, forgive me, Lin.

I guess this is what happens when you want to draw Critical Role fan art, but your brain’s drawing a blank and you’re still on your Overwatch kick.

Based on a thing that happened in episode 62, which was also immortalized in gif form here.

I can’t tell if Gabriel picked the book or if the Overwatch kids picked it to make him read it out loud and snicker quietly from their bunk beds… D.Va would totally try to record it.

Thank you, dear anon!! I’m really flattered that I’ve gotten such a positive response to my Reaper design, honestly. <33

I knew a lot of super nice hard rock musicians with kids, throughout my teens, and I think that seeps into my drawings of the edgelord sometimes, haha.
