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.

Read the update here! The new site will be 2 weeks ahead of what's posted here (so updates here will resume in 2 weeks).

@Firebee: Hey, thanks for telling me! I haven't seen it on any of the computers I've checked and I don't think there's much I can do about it, but hopefully the new site will work better.

Well, we technically weren't rained out since no rain happened this weekend, but we had already canceled camping anyways because there was a high chance of it. But since nobody lost any money on it, my in-laws bought a fire pit for the backyard and everyone roasted marshmallows on it and that was fun.

Also holy crap it's basically October?? I can't believe it's that late in the year already. I'm thinking about watching a bunch of (mostly Netflix) horror movies, if anyone has recommendations. And/or I'll marathon The Twilight Zone. We'll see about that.

AND that means it's Inktober again already. I'm not going to do it because TBH I hate inking and lately I've barely had enough energy to just do comic pages, BUT I'd like to see what ya'll are making if you decide to do it. Feel free to post links to your stuff in the comments during October!

So heads up for next week- I'm going camping over the weekend, which is when I usually do a lot of comic work, so the next update may or may not be late/non-existent and you may or may not get filler of Huvrye & Yin camping instead. Unless it continues to rain all week, which looks extremely likely.

@Tigershark: Yeah, I've been sketching pages where they're back in the library and it's really weird. :I

Hey so along the lines of "a really terrible way of explaining things," you ever see/hear something explained so badly it hurts? That's happened to me at least once. I was in college for graphic design at the time, taking a basic computer science course. The teacher (who was generally disliked in the first place) was going over stuff we needed to know for a presentation, and I generally ignored what she said about making a powerpoint look "good" because, y'know, graphic design and literally all my major classes are about making things look good and effectively communicating visually. But then I glance up to see what her examples of "good" presentations are, and at least one of them had such terrible color choices it physically hurt to look at it.

Have an early update because I’m going to a wedding later today and I feel like those things always take longer than you expect.

You may have already seen this elsewhere, but broken is joining SpiderForest! I’m very happy about it, and I’ve had a great time chatting with the other members so far. Alyssa (who makes Lapse, which I thoroughly enjoyed reading) is currently working on a new site that should work a lot better for the whole single panel layout, so once that’s up and running, updates will happen there first, and then on here & Tapas maybe 2 weeks later. I’ll let you know when that happens.

Hey, we're back! Thanks for your patience and kind comments, everyone- I'm feeling significantly better, and I was able to fix some things that have been bothering me about upcoming story stuff. I'm really looking forward to some things happening pretty soon.

And yes, I've been really loving Breath of the Wild. I think one of my favorite things is how dungeons have been kinda replaced by all the shrines- I've always loved the visual/physical puzzles in the other Zelda games I played, but I didn't like being stuck in the middle of so many layers of puzzles and all the backtracking you have to do sometimes. The shrines are like nice, low-pressure, bite-sized versions of that for me. If I can't or don't want to figure it out now, it's really easy to come back and do it later, and I love it. What I don't love, though, is that you can only have 5 horses at a time. I want to own all of them.

Also, Mario Kart 8 is my favorite one so far, and I'm very impressed with that because I have crazy nostalgia for Double Dash.

“Good at flying” is a bit of an understatement.

ALRIGHT so I didn’t want to do this right in the middle of getting the update schedule back on track, but turns out I suuuuper need a mid-chapter break. I’ve been having a rough time getting though the last few pages and I’m really stuck sketching the next one even though it’s a really easy page? Like, “it’s mostly headshots” easy but it feels impossible to figure out so ANYWAYS, time for a quick two week break to recharge, enjoy my birthday, and FINALLY get to play Breath of the Wild (my birthday gift to me. I’ve been dying to play it since it was announced). Updates will resume on the 5th. I’m going to try to do a few concept art streams for Patrons because I’m starting to poke at the next chapter and boy howdy is there a lot of concept art that needs to be done.

As always, I’m thankful for everyone’s support and patience, and I’m glad you’re enjoying the story so far. <3

Thanks for the 3 year congratulations, everyone! Not going to lie- knowing that a bunch of other people are invested in this story & these characters gives me a huge boost to motivation when working on it. I SUPER APPRECIATE YOUR SUPPORT whether it's through Patreon, commenting, sharing, etc. it's all a huge help and it means a lot to me. I will add that if you like broken, please consider supporting me on my Patreon - not only will you get to see more art, but we'll all get more frequent updates! We're sitting a little over halfway to the goal of +1 update per month and I think it would be really fun to start progressing the story a little faster.

ALSO speaking of story progression, I think I've mentioned that this next chunk is exposition? Which is kinda really important to understand moving forward. Please let me know if the dialogue doesn't make sense so I can fix it.

FINALLY is this the first time we've had a decent shot of Yin's wings? I think it is. His wings are my favorite.

Hey guess what broken turns 3 years old on Friday! I'm definitely going to do something special for it (especially since I may or may not have missed it last year). My current thought is to maybe do an art stream for everyone on Friday night (normally just for Patrons) doodling the characters, but I'm super open to suggestions.

I'm glad you're all enjoying the change of scenery, because I know I am (although I'm already tired of drawing grass :P).

Also my husband started learning to flat pages for me with this update which is SUPER GREAT.

Thanks for your patience with that impromptu 2 week break- work's been a bit hectic lately, there were some last minute script things I had to work out, and this update ended up being waaaaay more work than I anticipated. But hopefully it was worth the wait.

I think it's funny that the three things I've been looking forward to the most so far- Yin being named, making that dumb "nice to meet you" joke, and the two of them coming here- ended up being in three consecutive updates. That's been pretty nice since, with webcomics, you usually have to wait FOREVER between the big fun parts. We're also gonna get a nice chunk of worldbuilding (...I feel like there's a joke there, since Yin literally built the "world" they're currently in) starting SUPER SOON so some of your questions will be answered shortly! Actually, if ya'll have specific questions about the world, feel free to post them and I'll keep them in mind for future stuff. I don't like talking about a lot of info outside the story because it's easier for me to keep track of what's been said in the comic itself, and I want to make sure you can understand everything just fine without needing anything outside the comic.

I'm glad ya'll are enjoying these two dorks because honestly, one of my biggest pet peeves is when stories (mostly movies come to mind, since I haven't had much time to read lately) throw two characters together and at the end it's like "THE POWER OF TRUE LOVE/MAGIC OF FRIENDSHIP BECAUSE THE PLOT SAID SO" and I'm like "YOU LITERALLY MET YESTERDAY AND YOU'VE BEEN YELLING AT EACH OTHER THE ENTIRE TIME." It's like it's a requirement that main characters who share screentime are required to be friends/lovers by the end, regardless of how much chemistry/time/development is actually there? IMO they need reasons to care about each other, or at least to want to be around each other. I have a lot of feelings about this, but apparently my body is continuing the trend of "let's be really tired on Sundays" so I can't think of words right now. What do ya'll think?

Ya'll, I'm so very happy we're at this part and I feel like I have things to say, but TBH I'm not feeling well right now (I've been inexplicably sleeping horribly and my stomach is suddenly unhappy for no reason???) so...I dunno, I might post something on Patreon/Tumblr/Twitter later this week. I feel like I need to celebrate somehow now that we got to the part where Yin can kinda talk and has a name, but I don't know. Maybe I'll find and post some early art? If ya'll have any low-effort suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

Fun story: I've been on a creepypasta kick lately. It's weird listening to multiple stories describe how creepy a character with no eyes/etc is while this kid meets most of those descriptions and everyone (as far as I've seen in the comments) thinks he's adorable. XD

So the site wasn't displaying images last update, but it does that sometimes and then fixes itself. Thanks to JoKeR and Riverfox237 I realized that this time the entire host site just...disappeared? Or went down for over a week? IDK I haven't looked into what happened to it specifically. Point is, I moved things to a new image host, and I think it's working fine now (please let me know if it's not).

Also, guys, you've been leaving lovely comments lately and I just wanted to let you know that yes, I'm terrible at replying because IDK what to say but please know that I always see them and they make my heart very happy. <3

AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE MAKES MY HEART HAPPY? A couple days ago I glanced at the next page to see which one it is and holy crap you guys, next page officially starts a part I've been DYING TO GET TO FOR . . . IDK but it's probably been years at this point. And not only are we finally there, but I'm super happy with the layouts and pacing for the next chunk of pages so . . . yeah, I'm super excited.
