I make a lot of art and I go by the name Yubria … but you’ve probably already figured out that much. I’m really into making fantasy comics, and if you’re into fantasy/horror you should maybe check out my webcomic, broken. It’s about fairies fighting eldritch abominations and fun stuff like that.

Other art that gets posted on my art tumblr may include things such as: another one of my stories, currently going by the name Whisper (subject to change at any given moment); doodles from our D&D campaign (check out Dice2CU on Twitter/Tumblr/iTunes), Guild Wars 2 fanart, Pokemon fanart, and occasionally other things that strike my fancy.

Heeeeeyyyyyy guess who's finally no longer sick with a variety of things and has the energy to make comics again. It is so nice to feel (almost) normal again and get back to comic updates.

Anyways, early update today because I'm gonna go eat a lot of food and stare at a football game in a bit. How are ya'll doing? I feel like it's been ages since I've posted anything here.

@Random Reread: Thanks to this comment some part of me will always think of Effiom as a pretentious aesthetic blogger.

@Dragoonfliy: Just wanted to let you know that over a year later I still think of Lennis as Science Mom because of this comment.

@Harry Monster: Late reply is late, but yes, I 100% agree. Sometimes I think about how if Huvrye responded a little differently, he could've easily ended up one of the story's villains.

And we're officially back with this very uplifting update, isn't that nice! Getting the rest of the chapter figured out actually went easier than I expected, so I'm excited to get working on the rest of that. Plus it focuses a bit more on the construct, and in case I haven't said it before- he's my favorite. Sometimes the comic goes for a long time where he doesn't do anything and I think I like someone else better, but then we get to parts where he actually does things and I know better.

BTW I intended to do one more filler of Adan last week, but things happened and I somehow didn't finish it. I'll be posting that and the other filler on Tumblr/Twitter later this week if you're interested.

So, yeah, Huvrye’s dealing with depression and suicidal tendencies, and has been since before the beginning to the story, but we're finally addressing it, more or less. Getting to this part has been kinda interesting for me, partially because it's such a big chunk of his character, and partially because it's part of what the story is actually about. Also, it's kinda really personal because I have friends and family (and even myself, a little bit) who've struggled with similar issues.

I've never been that great with expressing myself verbally (hence the choice of a VISUAL medium for stories), so half the time I'm not even sure what to say, but here's some relevant thoughts:

Your problems don't have to define you. Things will get better if you keep going, regardless of how much help you might need along the way. Also, please, get help if you don't know how to deal with anything you're struggling with. It honestly bothers me how much people (at least, in circles I've been in) will go to a doctor for physical problems, but won't go see anyone for emotional/mental issues. One is not more important than the other- they are both important and both affect each other.

Anyways, I think that's all I have to say for now. Reminder that broken is going on hiatus for a few weeks so I can do things like get married/move/enjoy the holidays, but I will have some Q&A + Christmas filler going up in place of the updates. I love all of you and I hope you have a great week. <3

How is everyone's December going? I know it literally just started, but I feel like it's already halfway done since I've been busy with finishing up wedding planning junk for next week. Thankfully the next update will be pretty easy art-wise, and I already have most of my Christmas shopping done. I've been watching a lot of Christmas romance movies while I do things, and WOW do some of them have terrible life advice. And no research whatsoever. It's kinda entertaining when it's not mind-numbingly dull. XD

Time for a little more backstory.

In case you missed it, this is what Huvrye would look like if he got a makeover.

I told my Patrons earlier that my mental image of Old Sestrinn is Mines of Moria, but as a shopping mall. And I dunno about you, but that's not a phrase I ever thought I'd say.

Also, Happy (early) Thanksgiving! I'd type more about things I'm thankful for and junk but honestly I'm tired and we're leaving at like 5AM and traveling all day tomorrow so... I'm thankful for all of you and I hope you have a nice Thanksgiving if you celebrate it. I'm gonna head to bed now.

@Riaya: Nice! I keep getting distracted and still haven't finished rewatching season 1, much less season 2. TT_TT

Fun fact: Some fairies like building out of and into solid rock, so it's normal to find settlements (especially older ones) completely underground. The whole alchemy thing makes carving stone a lot easier.

Just wanted to let ya'll know that I probably won't be posting super consistently over the next month or so because I'm moving in a few weeks and getting married in December. broken will continue with weekly updates into December (although exactly which day it gets updated will vary), partially because I'm stubborn and partially because the next chunk is important and I want to get through it before I take a holiday/wedding hiatus.
Also, since I'm working ahead on pages now, I'm starting to look at stuff to post for the hiatus. I'm thinking about doing another Q&A and/or promoting other webcomics. If you have something for the Q&A, or something to promote (your project or someone else's) I'd love to hear about it!
As always, I love all of you and I'm very thankful for your support and patience! <3

Happy (almost) Halloween, ya'll! Anything fun planned? I'm slowly working on watching Stranger Things and desperately trying to any avoid spoilers online.

<h1>If you've ever wanted to read broken offline and/or as a collection of high res comic pages, you're in luck because it has a store now! </h1>
Chapter 1 & 2 are currently available to buy as PDFs and I have plans to add more later, most likely including things like mini comics. If you're enjoying the comic, please consider supporting it by buying from the store and/or becoming a Patron. <3

The pages in the PDFs have been touched up a bit- namely, re-lettering all of Chapter 1 since it took that long for me to figure out how I wanted to do it. Some of the dialogue has been edited, but it's mostly minor stuff to smooth out the wording here and there. The most significant change is that Effiom's dialogue is now white letters on a black background (instead of black on grey), but I'm going to re-upload those panels to this site at some point to prevent any confusion when he shows up later.

Because panicking, impulsively attacking the evil dictator's wife, and racing into a wilderness of monsters has worked out so well so far.

So since it's October- aka Halloween/Horror Month- I've decided to finally finish a few broken related things. This week it's a few site changes- main characters have been added to the About page in case you forget which name goes with which face (personally, I'm terrible with remembering names, in stories or IRL), links to past filler are now on the Extras page, and there's a Fan Art page! Naturally I just remembered one other thing I was going to add, but that will have to wait for a bit.

ALSO if you're a fan of classic monster books, I started listening to a few and posting sketches of how I picture the characters, thanks to one of my Patrons. The current book is The Hunchback of Notre Dame- a few sketches are up on Twitter, and I'll put them all on Tumblr when I finish the book. I'm also going to be listening to Dracula, Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Frankenstein, and maybe Phantom of the Opera.
