Lucrecia, Hojo, Ifalna, Hollander, thirty-something years ago. I imagine it’s like - the assistants are sitting around the lab chatting about their weekends, and Gast comes in and is all ‘you kids look so young and happy. Stay there and lemme take a picture’, before Grimoire appears a second later and is like ‘Lucrecia, get your ass off the bench. And why don’t any of you have your labcoats buttoned up? Come on people what are we paying you for?’ etc etc (he’s kidding, of course. If anything Grim thinks the kids should spend less time in the lab, they’re all so pale).
Then years down the track, this photo is one of the few things Gast takes from his office before going on the run with Iffy.
I’ll come back and colour this soon - I’m fond of the way it looks now so I thought I might share. Background done with ref.
