Sovereign

Sovereign

by Lunapocalypse
The world is under a vice, Illuminati-like grip by individuals convinced the human race has hit its dead end; during a time when science has reached a pinnacle, crimes are committed in an endeavour to influence evolution. "The ends justify the means" they might say. Yet what is the end? Just how far do they mean to reach it?

A small group of home-grown vigilantes take against their biological misdeeds, preserving the innocence that is affected by them worldwide. Meanwhile one lost soul comes to grips with being different; no matter how much she convinces herself she is human, there's too much in the way of evidence that says otherwise.

@Hjels: This certainly isn't the end in the story-telling realm. I've something I feel is a little more powerful under the hood that hopefully I can shine some light on soon in the future. Needless to say your expert writing has helped me improve in my story-telling, Hjels. Without that I would not be where I am now.

Ah, man. It's hard not to think of this as goodbye, though I'll keep a small lantern burning for Sovereign just in case. This is a real bummer, but I get where you're coming from. It can become a bit all-consuming.

I just hope this isn't the last we hear of you in the story-telling department. Your art has gotten really damn good, and the story is also coming together. I'm gonna miss the characters, that's for sure.

Durn it...

So sad to read this. :( But I totally get the feeling and whatever you need to do, do it, man. I'm gonna miss this comic in my feed but I get that everyone needs to take a break, even very long ones.
I look forward to seeing you around tumblr though!

Don't think of it as goodbye -
It frustrates me on many levels to write a message like this. When starting on this project, I had it in my head that I was untouchable and could continue pumping out Sovereign for as long as I wanted. Creativity has a habit of throwing a curve ball. It's an awkward relationship. One where if you don't meet it on its level and appreciate how it develops and flows inside you, it's gonna crush certain things you start without mercy.

I haven't been doing much in the way of illustration recently. My motivation does tend to swing with the seasons, but I need to find a way to nullify stagnation as much as possible. Whenever I don't do drawing, I feel like when I come around to it that I'm obligated to work on Sovereign. I don't want that, I want to work on other projects and small things as well. It's an awful feeling that ends up neutralizing any motivation I might have accrued in the first place. So I feel the need to axe Sovereign.

This all probably sounds over dramatic and I do plan on adding to Sovereign in the future. It'll be on a when-it's-done basis and maybe it'll even change a marginal amount. I've thought of too much I want to tell to not tell it. (I should also quickly mention there's one more page on buffer for next Saturday).

Sovereign has been a stepping stone to other things. I can see real, REAL improvement between when it started and now which is an amazing thing for me to observe. It's helped me meet some amazing people through the interwebs (you know who you are), discover some fantastic stories that have helped me improve my own abilities; all of which I can safely say that without, I would not be as good as I am now. Sovereign also helped me find my partner in life, someone across the Pacific who I can spend the rest of my years with. For all of this, Sovereign will always be my baby and in the back of my mind.

For the time being you can follow me on my Tumblr to catch other art bits and boots and projects that I've got my heart set upon.

And if the pages keep flowing later in life, far past page 12 of issue 3, this will all seem rather anti-climactic to whoever is reading this at that point.

So just think of it as 'Hiatus'.

Have a great weekend, y'all.

"Customers", huh? Kind of makes me wonder what kind of services a man who lives is a giant, freaking submarine provided to fugitives carrying stole WMDs.

@arswiss: This is the part where I swing the whole story in a direction no one expected when a giant water spirit erupts from the ocean and tells Narelle she must embark on a great crusade to protect the planet Hel'njar-Kan before it is vaporised by a gigantic supernova that will take out the solar system it resides in.

@Hjels: I really enjoyed drawing that hand! It was iffy, but from a first person perspective I could look at my own hand at an angle and kinda figure things out.
