Twelve O'Clock Sweet

by manatiel_
When an exiled vampire and a reclusive herbalist become unlikely friends, they work together to complete their quests for revenge and redemption.

~~~

When Rowan is exiled from the underground vampire colony, it's a miracle that he finds someone still living in the abandoned settlement a few miles away. It's even more of a miracle when the tenant, a herbalist called Sage living on the outskirts of Sanctuary, agrees to take him in and help get him back to health.

Thank you for all the support thus far. I didn't want to officially go on hiatus, because I really wanted to and believed I could get up to speed, but I guess it wasn't meant to be just yet. I hope you understand.

Fun fact: Sage's succulents in the first panel are actually based on my real life succulents!

The pink pot is an Echeveria of some sort, light blue pot is a Hawthoria, yellow pot is a oversized Crassula 'Buddha's Temple,' and the orange pot is my big ol cactus! I think it's a sand dollar cactus, but I'm not entirely sure. It sprouts really pretty flowers though, as does the Echeveria :)

Hi everyone!

I'm still not back fully even though I'm uploading 2 pages (sorry to get your hopes up!).

My plan was to post these when I finally had a buffer that I was happy with so I could have days off or whatever, and still have stuff ready to go up. BUT life threw me a curveball and that buffer hasn't happened. I AM sketching page 25, but it won't be done soon, so neither will a buffer, sorry! :(

I figured I might as well just upload these two while I work on that then, instead of them collecting virtual dust :P I'm kinda going back to my old colouring style from the first few pages, but some tweaks. And I also made my own font! The font in the speech bubbles was written by yours truly :D I hope you like it, I feel like it adds quite a nice touch to the whole thing haha.

I hope you enjoy the new pages, thank you for your patience and continued support! <3

@manatiel_: Well you certainly did a really good job there, with his character design. Hell, I know I'd let him into my flat if Rowan needed a place to stay in a heartbeat.

I was born with synesthesia, which basically means I see sounds as colors, but I can also see what their aura looks like as well. So with that being said, I bet Rowan would have a lovely and as well calming aura if I ever had the chance to meet him in reality. He's a keeper, no doubt about it.

@tksocrazy: thank you so much!! this comment really made me happy :3 as much as vampires can be cool, i sometimes feel like the trope gets a bit repetitive lol. that plus the fact i wanted to practice colouring darker skintones is why Rowan is who he is <3 heh

Really makes me happy to see that you stepped way out of the norm and had made Rowan dark skinned, rather then the typical everyday stark white/pale vampire you see all the time in books, movies, and games. Plus I'm all for biracial relationships, and well, Rowan here deserves a glimmer of hope and some happiness after what his previous owner had put him through.

@Ralend: aaa thank you! I'm not really 100% leaving, it's more that it won't be regularly updated like it was at the start. I just want to work on things before I continue wholeheartedly so that the comic will be better quality over all. But thank you for your comment, I really do appreciate it!

writers guilt is a real thing. I think it kills more comics than burnout. enjoy yourself, we'll be here if you decide to come back.

FINALLY!!!

-Small Announcement-

Hi everyone!

A quick announcement to just say that I'll be taking a break from my comic for a little while!

I want to focus more on making ref sheets and drawing my OCs in different scenarios, poses, expressions etc. so that I can draw them more consistently in my comic. And also so I can draw some more self-indulgent non-comic things without feeling guilty about it and therefore killing my drive to draw at all. I will still update when a new page is done, it just likely won't be on a set schedule for every(ish...) Tuesday.

Thanks for your support! <3
