I am a creative person, I draw, I write, etc. I am genderfluid, asexual, and prefer male pronouns but you can use whatever. Find me on instagram @dumahdie!

Between 2003-2004, I created Kairo's story, first in writing, then an attempt at drawing it. I've since restarted my comic with the current version. It needed it, regardless; my 8th-grade art was not quality work. His story has gone through several reincarnations and many revisions, and I've settled on what it is 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. I hope you enjoy reading it!
I finished two pages of the next chapter, but I'd like to post the chapter cover first..... problem is, I have no idea what it should be. "DEATH" with symbolism? Is DEATH too on the nose? I'll figure it out.

Also I hate shit on my hands, that's why I stopped painting; I mention it bc I did tie dye with my nephew without wearing gloves and....mistaaaaake. I've destroyed half my nails trying to get purple and black and red out of my cuticles and such. Ugh my anxiety and OCD-tendencies are not helping. Might post pics of our projects as VOTE BAIT once I finally get around to rinsing our shirts and washing them.
It's my birthday
Name for this chapter came from Breaking Benjamin's song Tourniquet. A lot of my art inspiration comes from that band.
I entered Shilin's fanart contest. I didn't win. :c Kinda bad quality since I didn't scan it, I took a pic of it instead.

If you want to see my comic sketches and stuff (mainly pics of my cats or weird selfies lol) I have an instagram now! Look me up @Dumah Die.
End of chapter!!! I will start the next chapter Wednesday, and set it to update one page per day until it's all up.
I'm uploading the rest of this chapter today in 5 min increments. I meant to upload it before, but.... it just got too frustrating before.
I'm terribly sorry about the unexplained hiatus and no news updates. I was overwhelmed and decided to focus on my comic on my own time, without having to worry about updating and scanning pages and editing them and stuff... Plus my very obsolete laptop had too many issues (battery would not charge, had to keep it plugged in at all times, but it was only ever at a perilous 1% and had a finicky cord such that if I so much as bumped it slightly it would consider it unplugged and the computer would just shut off. Was extremely frustrating.) I did buy a new laptop, but I hadn't had a new computer in so long that it was a steep learning curve from what I was used to, and I didn't have the energy to figure it out at the time. But I'm slowly getting used to my laptop, and I actually do like it a lot because it's touchscreen and I can fold it and flip it around and use it in whatever orientation I want, which is pretty sweet.

I finished the chapter in February and I'm just now getting to editing and uploading them. I will try to return to my normal update schedule now that I'm a little more used to the new scanning/editing programs. My old printer I've had since college doesn't even have a driver anymore, ugh.... my fancy new laptop didn't even recognize it. TT_TT So I've been scanning pages with my dad's printer/scanner.

My birthday is coming up on the 8th of March, and part of me is upset that I'm still depressed, still have badly managed anxiety, still have executive dysfunction with simple tasks my brain just does not let me complete. I've come to accept that I will always have these problems, and it's okay, and I will just have to live with it. Even though I'm not happy about it, lol.

Anyway, I will set the chapter to update a page a day until it's all up. Sorry for keeping you guys waiting for a year! Planning on resuming normal updates. I'll keep you posted this time if I change my mind.
Apologies for the unexplained hiatus (again). There are two pages a week for the next three weeks to make up for it. I have two inked pages and about six sketches to work on, so hopefully I will have more pages to update after that.
I'm trying to do more backgrounds, like scenery and inside houses... but I'm like, I don't even get paid for this lol. And it takes longer to finish a page if I do backgrounds. I think I like to show that the setting changed, and after that, you should just assume they are still there #lazy
Apologies for the unexplained hiatus! I thought I had more pages than I did... I had my second (and hopefully last!) surgery in December, so my belly was sore and I wasn't able to draw in my lap like I usually do. I'm doing much better and I'm returning to work this Thursday. I have about ten pages done, so I'm going to upload two per week to make up for my absence.
I was going to color the backgrounds like always but the room is all stark white, so I decided to leave it this way because I think it's more unsettling compared to the rest of the comic.
I meant to finish this but I didn't have time, and then halloween was over and I was like meh
Wow! I managed to make it in time for a new page. I thought I was posting late.
Unfortunately....I just realized I completely forgot about doing a new chapter cover. Whoops. I was too excited about new characters and a new revelation... Any theories???? :D :D 8D Riordan's age progression was fun to draw. He looks a lot like Argo now.

Surgery went well, I'm healing slowly but surely. I lost like ten pounds though from nausea and vomiting and having no appetite most of the time. I'm seeing a gastrologist, but so far my various doctors haven't found anything. My second surgery is sometime in October, and I finished enough pages to last me until November 1st. So I'll keep working on pages and hopefully have enough to last the rest of the year.
Yeah so like the little sketch says, I'm having surgery. I didn't finish chapter 10, but I do have six pages done, so for those weeks I can focus on recovery. ^_^
Double update since I forgot to upload last week's page. I'm so done with this week, but I still have two more work days. Thinking about taking personal leave, but then I wouldn't have any money.....
Apologies for the delay. My little sister had major surgery this week, and I went to visit her after work yesterday morning instead of scanning and uploading pages. And now I found out my best friend's mom died. And I'm going to see a doctor Tuesday to set up an appointment to see if I have the cancer that runs in my family (hence sister's preventative surgery, she's doing okay, in pain but recovering). So, YEAH. Fun times. :/ I have a bunch of pages done, though, so there will be updates for June.
In case you can't read my/Kairo's shit handwriting, his note says "Tak-- Thanks for your discretion. I got the message. Can I come by and talk to you? I don't remember how to find your place, but I can disappear to the bathroom if you're not using it. --Amerin"
I'm uploading three pages this week since I missed all of April. But I definitely prefer scanning a bunch of pages than staggering the updates every week. Plus I have four more pages, so May is taken care of, and I can focus on Phoenix Comic Con. I'll be sitting at my friend's table again :D
