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.

Having some computer problems lately - think I need to return this desktop (again) and get another. The HDD makes a lot of noise, SOMETIMES, and then there's a weird intermittent beep noise that happens on startup, but once again only SOMETIMES. "Sometimes" isn't something I want happening with a computer, you know?
It's been a while since I drew Anubis.
I hope you all had a great Mother's Day! Give your Mom a hug!
Maybe Saizo should have warned Kai about that move. Though it was his only way of stopping Dark Tornado.

I've got a professional voice acting studio tomorrow, so wish me luck!
My laptop is making rather distressing noises lately, and while I was drawing today it just up and restarted out of nowhere. I'm somewhat worried that I'm going to need to buy a new computer soon, sigh.

If I need a new computer, I'm just gonna get a desktop; it's not like I ever move it anyway, so I don't know why I keep springing for laptops.
Happy Star Wars Day
... He's flapping his wing to create wind. I think it'll make more sense when taken in conjunction with the next page.
Ugh, I've been doing the timed quest for FFXV, and it's really screwing with me, since I pretty much have to play it for a little every hour, which kills productivity since I can't focus at all.
Matrix dodge!

Been watching the NBA playoffs, I feel like they're better this season than in recent memory. If only GS wasn't so wildly overpowered...
@Sol: Nothing to see here~ (STEALTH EDIT)
Sorry for Kratos' dialogue getting cut off here, that's my fault. I sent K.K. a revision.

Currently in Japan on my Honeymoon!
I imagine that Stephanie's style is somewhere between Xianghua and Raphael from Soulcalibur (so... Wushu with Fencing?)

I also imagine that Kratos has no actual style since his sword is kinda unwieldy (though if it was slightly smaller, maybe the Ren style, which I always just thought of as Link's style from Legend of Zelda).

Sorry it's a bit late (but only by like... 3 hours, so not bad, eh?)
Running a bit late, next page will be up by tomorrow morning.
Celestia is referring to the power she used in Chapter 42 - Page 21.
She's got a real Phoenix thing going on.
@Sol: Congratulations!!! :D!!

I'm officially married now as of April 8th! :D
His shield is pretty gnarly. I assume the sword handle wrapped itself around his arm, then the blade part kinda went "splat" and turned into the shieldy bit.
That wing is really dexterous considering how big it is.

Posted! Now to go watch Wrestlemania! (I'm a Seth Rollins mark, but the rest of the card kind of looks boring to me)
Don't get me wrong, diamonds CAN cut. Even the article you linked to mentions how it's a diamond that's been specifically fashioned into a blade which is actually my point. Diamonds can be cut and formed to have a sharp point or blade and that would make them sharp. But they aren't like that naturally.

My problem with his description is it changes based on what kind of diamond he's talking about. Is he talking about a diamond knife? Is he talking about a diamond fresh out of the ground that hasn't been processed yet? If you say something is "As sharp as a knife," you get the general idea that it is sharp. You could make the argument that maybe they are referencing a dull knife, but then the analogy would have to clarify that it means an "unsharpened knife." You don't have that luxury with a diamond. You have to be clear that it is a diamond that has been formed to be sharp, like that very diamond knife you mentioned.

Look, I get that this can be seen as a nitpick. It's not like I don't get what he's trying to say. Although rare, I've heard and seen it used before too. It's just really not the best way to describe what he's trying to say, in my opinion. Can he use it? Sure. He can use it so long as his little heart desires. But sometimes even the little details like this can make a big difference in how the reader perceives the character and story.
