The Lone Swordsman

The Lone Swordsman

Heaven has fallen, including its Leader, Aven, thanks to the Demon King Shutendoji's new Elite Demons. Now Shutendoji has his eyes set on Earth. Can a Lone Swordsman wielding Aven's sword stand a chance against such hopeless odds? Or will the madness of the souls he must absorb destroy him from the inside?

Rated PG-13 due to cartoon violence, blood and mild language.

End of chapter!

I've been reading a lot of books lately, 'cuz I found a new series that I'm pretty into (The Demon Cycle, by Peter Brett)

Unfortunately, as always, when I find a new book series, I end up just reading too much until my eyes hurt.

I've been sorta doing Inktober this year, but I keep falling behind. It's been a really long time since I did any non-digital drawing, and I find that the pen running out of ink or hitting an air bubble is annoying as all hell, and the inability to edit stuff as I'm drawing is a real pain.

I'm probably never gonna show anyone the drawings, but I guess it's probably a worthwhile exercise just to keep in a little bit of practice *shrugs*

Minor detail, right Kai?

The new anime season starts today (with Gintama, which I don't watch, but over the next week lots of new shows are coming)

It's looking like an especially good "slice of life" season, which will be interesting, since I haven't watched a real slice of life in... wow, probably years. I love them, but they can be really draining to watch, since they're slower paced and usually kind of depressing (though in an uplifting way, if that makes sense?)

This season, though, I'm pretty excited, especially for Mahoutsukai no Yome. Shoujo Shuumatsu Ryokou and Konohana Kitan also sort pique my interest, and I think I'll finally watch Kino no Tabi now that they're remaking it.

Only took 52 chapters but, Demon Teleportation is finally explained.

Main reason why Demons like to monologue before escaping :P.

I tried to microwave bake a potato today and it smoked out my microwave and destroyed the dish it was on. Now my whole place smells like smoke... made it really hard to breathe for a while.

I dunno how smokers do it, it just feels shitty.

Also, after reading the recipe for microwave baked potato (all 2 steps of it...) I realize I probably have too powerful a microwave, and probably botched the cook time by like... a lot. Behold, my culinary prowess!

Ugh watching the Steelers-Bears game today was so frustrating, I knew they were gonna run on every play. They literally can't pass! Why aren't you just run blitzing every time! MAKE THE TACKLE!

I'm gonna go watch the new Star Trek now. Fingers crossed that it's good - though I've never watched a Star Trek series before, so it's not like I have a point of reference (they look fun but they SFX is so old that I can't bring myself to watch)

Kai should probably take this more seriously, this is like monologuing while a laser slowly moves towards James Bond

The problem with sneak attacks is that, even if the opponent is moving super fast or teleporting, they always attack you from behind, so just swing your sword in mad circles around your neck area and you'll probably block or something?

I wasn't exactly sure how this would come out... I wanted it to look way ominous, like Cell being hit by a Kamehameha,

Sometimes, a page just looks better proportionally than other times, (where I have to adjust and readjust for hours trying to fix something). This is one of those pages where it just felt "right" to me right off of the sketch.

You'd think I'd learn my lesson that sometimes it's better to just scrap and redraw something completely, but no, I always just try to adjust and warp and distort until something looks right.... which takes way longer.

A bit late 'cuz I went and watched the season finale of GoT first. I'm glad that the payoff to all the stories was more consistent with what the characters would probably do, the past 2 episodes have been totally schizophrenic in tonality.

I dropped my tablet a few weeks ago, and I just recently noticed a few days ago that there seems to be like hairline cracks in it. It leaves like slight discolorations when I'm drawing. It's only noticeable on light colored backgrounds, but when I'm drawing it gives me no end of frustrations. I don't want to spend hundreds of dollars to get it maaaybe fixed and have to spend weeks without my tablet, but it makes my head hurt looking at it, so I'm undecided.

I had trouble coming up with a name for this chapter, so I just decided to name it for the Form name of Dark's current transformation.

While it is never mentioned in the story, each of Dark's Transformations have a name that I call them based on a Seven Deadly Sin, the one that resembles the Sin that is most associated with the soul that Dark absorbed. His previous transformation was Lust, due to Kira's lust for power that led to her marrying Shutendoji in the first place.

This form is Envy, named after Kratos' sin, caused by his constant jealousy towards his brother. Envy has been referred to as a "Green Eyed Monster" in Shakespeare (I believe) and while the green eyes doesn't transfer here, I wanted this form to be feral-like to fit that "Monster" trait, while keeping the long hair from his previous transformation since he obviously still has Lady Kira's soul in him as well.

This page came out pretty cool. I'm going to regret making Dark look like this, I assume, but for now it's fun drawing him.

I'm going to just rant into the ether for a sec. The new season of Game of Thrones has been bugging me, and I think I figured out what it is - the showrunners, without the books to kind of guide them, have no sense of pacing. Everything just sort of "happens" at once and it's always been the slow burn that made GoT moments feel even bigger.

Also, they've totally screwed up Tyrion. In the books, he's really smart, and even when it doesn't seem like he knows what he's doing, he's got a plan. Ever since they deviated from the books (around the time he landed in Mereen), he's been a moron and nothing's gone right. If he's not smart, what's the point of him? /rant

Today was a weird, unsettling day... (well, week) for Americans. Makes me glad that as a Canadian, our big political thingamajig is about a giant rubber duck or something.

This is the end of Part 5! Dark's supposed to look more feral, so I styled him more "werewolf" (with the super long creepy arms). Probably don't expect his hair to look this crazy every time.

Sol hasn't told me, but I'd guess he's got a few more transformations in him...

I did a background! I am terrible at backgrounds!

I kind of dig this page for the action poses though.
