Glad to see you're making a piece for this, looks great! (now to wait for Jinn's caricature of the man himself)

@Jinn, your link doesn't work somehow.
This probably would do better.

Rough WIP. I've spent ages trying to get the face right, and I'm still not happy with it.

Dunno if I should just keep it monochrome or not.

I know you love your blocky shapes, but here I feel the styles don't mesh quite as well as they usually do in your other works. The body just doesn't seem to fit in the same picture as the balloons.

Personally, I like the style of the balloons more.

I'm not so good with Pixel Art, but it's a little something to Satoru.

I hope the gravestone doesn't mean any bad.
