Hello! I am Alo Hinun. I draw things.

> I am currently a University student in Painting & East Asian Languages/Cultures.
> Half of my studio practice is making comics, the other half is large-scale figurative drawings/paintings and making books.
> When not at work or in the studio, I can usually be found studying the way of tea, reading, playing overcomplicated board games, or wandering the wilderness.
> I tend to enjoy mythology, original content, languages, psychology and philosophy.

I love giving and receiving critique.

@vapidity: Haha, I'm glad you like it! You have some really interesting characters, so it was a lot of fun to do! :) (Although it's not very holiday-appropriate, eheh... Sorry about that!)

@Everyone else: Thank you all very kindly! :D

Whelp, weird things happen when cycles are broken? I guess?

@The Orange Cow: Thank you! :D It feels good to have time to update again, haha. Things don't seem like they're working out quite so nicely now though, eheh!

Haha, we haven't really had a lot of panels with lots of people in them so far (since most of the comic has been Biijan talking to a fish or this kid doing... whatever he's doing), so this was fun! Might have another page up later today; we'll see!

Hmm! The narrative continues again!

If you celebrate a holiday this time of year, a very happy holiday to you! If you do not partake in holiday-celebration, then I wish you a distinctly pleasant day as well!

@Three: Thank you kindly! :D The ink (and eventual watercolor when we move back into a color sequence) will probably take some getting used to, but, it's proving a lot of fun!

Phew! Sorry about the silence for a bit guys. The semester caught me off guard entirely. But now I am off break and in the same location for a few days at least, so more pages to come!

Re: Style change! After some deliberation, I've decided that these pages are actually better in pure ink rather than a mix of digital and ink! I'll be going back and redoing some of the washes on the previous pages later, but for now, onwards!

@aqua the hedgie: Haha, this one's quite a bit different from Biijan, no? :D And thank you!
Talk & Response
The narrative continues! Played around a little bit in the way I'm inking, and still getting used to "toning", but hopefully it's cohesive!

@The Orange Cow: Despite my being sick, they actually went quite well! : ) Thank you!

Phew! Sorry about the small hold up there, everybody! Got kind of sick and then a few exams happened. Have another page!
Talk & Response
The narrative continues!
(Will probably be uploading another page or so later today, too! One that isn't just... a mostly empty double spread. Yeah.)

@The Orange Cow: Pffttt. XD You made me laugh when I read that. He doesn't seem the particularly friendly type, does he?

If you're looking for the first page of this 3-page update today, please go here:

The second chapter begins!
Talk & Response
The first part of a two-page update (does that make three pages total today? I think it does).

The second chapter begins! Where'd those super saturated colors go?

@The Orange Cow: Indeed! Sleep for Biijan~

And we've reached the end of the first chapter! Second chapter should be kicking off either later today or later this week depending on my class schedule.

@The Orange Cow: Yep! Fish gave Biijan some peaches.

@Merone: Thank you! :D Haha, figuring out a way to color those first couple pages was really a challenge...

Compassionate Fish is compassionate. Also, peaches!

@The Orange Cow: Indeed he is! He may be small, but his heart is big!

@Aqua The Hedgie: (Da-da-dadadun dun daaaa) Points until level up: 4900

@CuzzaCurry :
Woah! Thank you very much; I'm glad you enjoy it!
And thanks for catching that mistake! I must have completely missed it when I did my read-over. I've fixed it now. : ) Thank you so much again!

Fish admits to knowing "some things"!
(Also: Sorry for the small delay on this page! I had three critiques this week and I've presented about 30 individual paintings/drawings for them. But now they are over! For... another few weeks, at least...)

@The Orange Cow: Hehe! Indeed. :D Go, Biijan, goooo!

@cebab: Fish ain't got time for sass. XD

A wild fish attacks! As a note, I've updated the cast page! Take a peek.

@Aqua the hedgie: Ahah! I can imagine this response may continue for a while longer. :D

@The Orange Cow: Indeed! Fish, and Fish alone, can read that incredibly messy script!
Talk & Response
Wait... what?

Double-page spread! Looks like there are a lot of new faces! Wonder who they are?

Fish expresses sympathy for Biijan.

@The Orange Cow: I hope so! Thank you!

(sidenote: If you go back and re-read, you may notice that I decided to change the design/character that is on Biijan's hand!)
I must say, I just stumbled across this comic, and I am thoroughly impressed! You've got some awesome storytelling skills, and the visuals to back it up. I am very intrigued! Awesome work!

Biijan, that is not how you throw a punch.
