“A gambler, a convict, a wayward son, a lost Grisha, a Suli girl who had become a killer, a boy from the Barrel who had become something worse.”
The Crows at the beginning of Six of Crows and at the end of Crooked Kingdom. I wanted to draw hands and it grew into something more. The designs are inspired by both the show and the books.
ID under the cut.
[ID: Three picture, the first is a looping gif of the other two. The second is a digital drawing of the six Crows' hands on a table in a circle, above a map. In the first drawing, the map is the Ice Court. Clockwise, Wylan is holding a pen and drawing on the map with one hand and holding a grenade with the other. Jesper has three playing cards and a revolver. Matthias has shackles around his wrists and bloody knuckles, and he’s pointing at something on the map. Nina is holding a heart, wearing the Crows and a rose tattoo. Kaz’s hands are gloved, one on his crow headed cane and the other holding a coin with a crow on it. Inej has three throwing knives in one hand and a dagger in the other. There are other coins scattered around the picture.
In the third image, the map is Ketterdam. Wylan is still holding a pen and his other hand is clasped with Jesper’s. Jesper has his revolver. Matthias’s hands are shackle free but they’re ghostly, and one of them is on Nina’s hand. Nina’s other hand holds a human bone. Kaz has his left glove in his right hand, above his cane, and his left hand is ungloved and brushing against Inej’s hand. Inej still has her dagger in the other hand, which has a ship etched onto the blade. End ID]

If nothing else, Shadow and Bone has finally confirmed for me once and for all that Leigh Bardugo making the crows all really young was absolutely the right move and completely in character for all of them, if only because they all give off that strong "wouldn't you like to know, weatherboy" I'll-fight-god-in-a-denny's-parking-lot energy that teenagers have, and it just doesn't make sense if they're older. Like, of course Kaz is going to pick fights with the most powerful people around him with full confidence that he'll win. He's 17 and full of rage, he has no fear of death or the consequences of his own actions, the only thing he can't do is talk to the girl he likes. If he does that at however old Freddy Carter is pretending to be, then he just looks stupid.
