I used a picture of the pencils since my camera captured with with an interesting reddish tint I wanted to use. I was thinking of stories as I drew it, and it first I just wanted to draw an arrogant Commander player. But maybe she has to challenge the Seven Warlords of the Sea--but for Commander--and if she can't beat them, she dies. Of course when she gets to the last one, she discovers there's actually one more...the one behind it all. Even a prodigy like her surely doesn't stand a chance.
Also, it's actually 2/7/15 today!
