About Me

I like to draw. /obviousness

Between 2003-2004, I created Kairo's character because I was obsessed with Inuyasha and Yu Yu Hakusho (I still love Hiei). My two best friends at the time also made characters set in the same world and had similar stories, but it was difficult for me to match my version of the demon world to theirs, so I mostly wrote independently. I then started a comic about Kairo's story, and I included their characters despite the fact that our ideas rarely matched and they always had issues with how I represented their characters.

My best friends and I had a falling out in high school and don't talk anymore. One of them once threatened to sue me if I used her characters in my work, so I've since restarted my comic. (It needed it, regardless; my 8th-grade art was not quality work.)

Eventually I got to where I am now. I feel I have well-developed characters and a believable world of demons and elementals, and I'm always striving to improve my work (which includes the art, story, world, the characters, their histories, etc).

I hope you enjoy the story! So far it's been 9 years in the making. ^_^

******THE CHAPTER COVER HAS BEEN UPDATED TO COLOR, CHECK IT OUT, YO!!!!!!!******

I had mandatory overtime this week :/ and then my dumb missionaries came over on Monday, and I went to a baseball game with my dad on Tuesday with free tickets I got from my job, so I only had time to finish one page and work on inking the next few week's pages, really... I do have the next page mostly finished, there's only one panel I need to sketch/ink/color, but it's a side-view kneeling pose. I hate side-view kneeling poses. HENCE WHY I DREW ONE IN THE CHAPTER COVER AND I DID ANOTHER ONE FIVE PAGES LATER.... WHY DO I DO THIS TO MYSELF???

I had Solarius die off-screen for a reason. Mainly I figured he was more of a side-character and isn't an integral part of the story at this point. SORRY, SCAR MAN.

I get as many people presents as I can for their birthdays/holidays, and there's a couple peeps in my family who get upset cuz they didn't get me anything in return (my family's big, so we usually draw lots or something and get presents for one person) but idk, I feel the same way and feel like if I have extra money I should spend it on the people I like having in my life. I try to show them that I do care by.....throwing presents at them I guess?? haha

The best comment I've gotten about Ves'per's creepy-ass form here is from my friend who said "so are they like undead bone goblins?" hahahahaha

[EDIT:] Colored!!!!!!! This was surprisingly fun! Difficult, sure, but fun. I printed out two copies and test colored them to see what colors I wanted Vessie's "bones" to be, and I did my best to draw Sam in the dark. Basically what's going on here is that Ves stripped off parts of his "skin" to form a protective barrier around Sam.

I used my white-out pen to erase the parts where I wanted the lightning, then I had to wait for it to dry completely before I colored over it. Marker doesn't stick to the white-out very well so I had to do it a couple times. And when I was done I hit it with acrylic matte spray. Vessie's arm is disintigrating into dust, hence the dots. This page isn't so much symbolism like I usually do, mostly it's just spoilers for this chapter, lol. Guess you already know how that meeting with the new king is gonna go....

He assumes the letter is from Ves'per because it's technically Vessie's color/magic signature (really Ves'per is just echoing Sam's magic signature color but whatevs, he'll figure it out).

Any curious guesses as to what the note says? :)

@Zoal: Okay, great! :) I will keep doing what I'm doing with the text. Haha, yeah he found out he can still use his blood for spells and say them aloud, and if he needed to, he could just bite himself, so he's not worried. Thanks! I was going for a bit of a gradient on the right, to indicate his nagging thoughts which he isn't facing right now, and the lines on the other side are jagged to show surprise ^_^

@Nerdlove: Ah! Sorry, I found Tumblr to be kind of a timesuck, and I wanted to work on my comic more rather than browse that site all night. I'm in a better place now, mentally, so I'm doing all right. Thank you for your concern :)

@Zoal: Hahaha! XD I meant the quality of the picture is bad, but yeah I still don't like showing off my art unless it's finished. Thank you so much, I'm trying really hard to improve bit by bit. ^_^

Look at Kairo acting all nonchalant like he didn't just almost have a heart attack-- OH WAIT his heart doesn't beat hehehehehe

Also, I've been practicing my penmanship and I'm trying to write smaller text for the comic. Do you guys like it this size or does it make it hard to read? Let me knoooowww..... otherwise I will just continue doing whatever the eff I want, lol

Also, if anybody's wondering how Kairo can read that but he can't write a spell like that himself, it's kind of like how I can read and understand some Spanish, put words I'm unfamiliar with into Google translate, but I cannot write sentences because I barely remember the grammar or how to conjugate verbs. I mean, I could mash stuff together and try if I had to, but it were a spell that could backfire.....yeaaahhhhno, I wouldn't do that.
