My goodness, this comic is lovely! I'm stunned to see that it doesn't have a plethora of fans and comments. Your art-style is so original and eye-pleasing.... very lovely. You've made a fan out of me.

I'm glad to see that you are updating again and am looking forward to the next installment! I like the gray washes you use- they give a warm feeling to the pages.

hello. i'm very, very sorry about the long wait between updates. i don't really have a reason other than not being motivated enough. i'll try to do better in the future. there are a few more pages that just need toning that will hopefully go up sometime very soon. until then, please enjoy this update.

a small note is, if the pages do not show up for you, please view them directly:

Thank you for all of your comments- It was a nice surprise to get such thorough comments on the comic, and i appreciate it. The cover is all watercolour actually. Thank you for continuing to read.

hello, sorry for the lack of updates for so long. Only two pages today, but there are several other uninked pages that i've yet to finish, so updates will hopefully be more regular now.

It'll be a little bit dull while they are traveling through the desert, but hopefully not too much. These pages take a little longer to do, because of painting the sky, but they also end up being some that i like. The toning takes less time though, because the desert is very sparse. Anyway, i hope that you enjoy this update.

soooo beautiful (this is bi-hwa/riddlebreeze from LJ and I'm so glad I checked your comic. I admire you for even starting one because I can't seem to start my comics... I'll keep a tab on this although I don't come to smackjeeve that often. Mm give updates on LJ, too, and that'll remind me to check it out. The story sounds really interesting I'm really curious of where this is going. :D And the art is awesome, too. Keep it up!

[EDIT] Oh I didn't know there were more previous pages... I'll read it later :D :D

I'm glad that I checked out this comic because it gives me hope that there are others out there that is willing to take the time and the effort to draw each of the pages of their own comic by hand and painstakingly shade it via computer. Effort, love and determination show with each of your pages and man, is it so worth it.

The last panel was executed and shaded so gracefully and beautifully. And the dialogue is very easy to read and understand and very formal too. Each of the exchanges between characters are like listening to two beautiful birds sing... or um.. reading them? :B Anyways, I will be definitely looking out for the future updates for this comic for it also has intriguing characters and a pretty interesting storyline. :{D

Agh, I can't resist commenting on this comic because of how different and unique it is from the other stuff I have seen around smackjeeves! Each of the page are so easy to follow due to the very well constructed paneling layouts for each of the pages and the art is just so stunning from page to page. This deserves much more attention from the people of smackjeeves.

This comic gets more and more interesting. Also I should have commented before but, Hooray for the mystery man for saving the ring seller boy!

That man is rather creepy and is a pedophile. Really like the way you draw hands as well as faces. Very artistic this comic be.

Well, this is something quite out of the ordinary! I love your style of inking as well as drawing the backgrounds, people and everything! Also great job on the inking of the hair. Looks very realistic and lush. After reading the pages I will fave it, mark my word.

Wow, that's a really beautiful cover. I also like that fact that it is hand painted with water color and the character is drawn and colored with colored pencils of some sort. This cover shows me a lot of promise. I shall continue to read it. :{D

Stunning and alluring art along with graceful and very interesting characters which are very nicely presented with a fluid dialogue that captures your attention on the spot. I actually faved this a while back but didn't find the time to comment unfortunately D:

The technique gives it a ethereal feeling that blends perfectly into the night. your skills, truly I envy them.

Keep it up :)

another update. i'm fond of this page, i worked hard on it- its a sort of technique that i always admired in old manga, alot of atmosphere and overlapping of images. its something that is easy with computers now, but they did it by hand, and i wanted to do it by hand, too. Anyway, thank you for reading. Please enjoy this small update, everyone.
