I originally pitched this cover as a more simple version, with the Scoobies standing in a mall parking lot and looking into a sunrise. DH wanted a little more bang to it, mentioning the ending scene of The Avengers. So this is my version of that scene, with the battle worn gang, taking a quick donut break, while menace encroaches.
Dawn started with wilder eyes, but DH felt she looked too "donut crazy," which was the angle I was going for, but I altered them for a less sugar crazed look.
I'm still getting used to drawing young Giles, I made his hair a little too moppy...he developed an unintentional Eric Forman thing, between the clothing and the hair.
