Not On Hiatus, Butttt.....
Posted on March 3 , 2015
Clearly I am having trouble keeping up with even two pages a week, thanks to all the problems I'm having with the graphic novel printing, which I am way behind on, so I have decided to cut it down to one page a week until this graphic novel is printed, in my hands, and shipped off to Kickstarter people. I'm about a month behind schedule and it's killing me! I want to get this over with already!! But since I don't want to cut corners on either the new pages or the book, I'm taking things a little slower. I think this is the smarter route. For me, at least. I won't update the archive until I have both pages for the set up, but you can still read the newest page here on the front page (and click it for a larger view). Sorry guys. But I'm posting a lot of things on the Patreon for supporters there. We reached our first milestone goal, on to the next! Check it out!
New Pages Up!
Posted on February 20 , 2015
Man, what a week. I rode on a bus for ten hours to Fukuoka, saw Motley Crue's very last concert in Japan ever ever with my husband (who was probably the happiest I've seen him in a year), rode ten hours back, and pretty much the minute I got home I found out my aunt passed away after a long battle with breast cancer. Not sure if I'll be asked to fly to Texas for the funeral... lots of strange feelings right now. Very tired, very sad... hoping I can get a lot done this weekend and maybe get back on track by the end of the month. By then I'll post an update on the Kickstarter page, but right now I need to be by myself and focus on work for a bit. So here are the next two pages, and again I apologize for the wait.
Thanks to everyone who voted for FaLLEN during the GMI Awards. I've removed the Voting banner and replaced it with a Patreon banner. On Patreon I've posted process photos of these pages and I'll be starting the character blog tomorrow with Vesta for the first entry. Also, check out the amazing commission I got from Spanish artist Eduard Balust featuring Arma, Lamia, and Vox in the Guest Art gallery! Also be sure to check out his dA gallery.
Patreon, Motley Crue...

You may have noticed the new pages did not go up. I am running behind, which is awful timing because I've had an influx of viewers, but I did post some inked shots of the pages on my Patreon if you guys want to see. The $5 tier has access to those and the thumbnails. Everyone has access to a pic of Tuxedo Mask smoking a bong, though. Yup. Anyway, the reason I'm behind is my husband randomly bought expensive tickets to see Motley Crue out of town and I had to do a bunch of things before we leave today. That and I redrew the top left panel on one page like fifty hundred thousand billions times. I have been so lazy with perspective thanks to the old Inkblazers schedule, but now I have no excuse and need to get it right, haha. No shortcuts after this. So this week's pages will actually be last week's pages since I just learned I won't be home until Thursday and I leave in fifteen minutes... OH HUSBAND. Though I love Motley Crue, I really don't think we can afford to spend so much on a frickin' concert... especially when I have so much work to do.
Hiatus Over, Patreon!
Posted on February 6 , 2015
And the hiatus is over! I meant to have this up last night but I crashed. I'm going to keep it short because it's after 2 am arghghghagh. Anyway, uh, welcome back, FaLLEN!
In other news, I have a Patreon account now! You can support FaLLEN for $5 or less and get behind the scenes photos, character blogs, and more. If you're interested, check it out!
New Pages Next Week!
Posted on January 30 , 2015
The hiatus is almost over! HURRAH! And while I say hiatus, I've actually been busting my chops making over THIRTY images for FaLLEN, mostly for the Kickstarter. The calendar has finally been finished and I am waiting to hear back from the printer, so hopefully more news on that when I get back this weekend from Comitia 111 in Tokyo (B20b if you can make it). If you were on a tier for the Kickstarter where you got wallpapers, you are going to be getting an email from me REAL soon. Added an image of Vox in the gallery to have an excuse to update something. It will also act as a teaser for the calendar, though that image was not the main part of the month's illustration (January!).
Also, please vote for FaLLEN at the GMI awards! Just click the top banner with the GMI logo on it and you'll be taken to the voting page.
I've got a lot of housecleaning to do on this site in the next few months... going to make a few changes, add a proper character bios page, and attempt to make this layout slightly more mobile friendly. I've also started using Twitter again, so you can follow me there @FaLLEN_comic for updates on the comic or artwork or whatever.

I didn't think I'd post anything before next year, but I realized I never posted this last chapter's radio drama. This is actually the last one I ever produced... the chick who played Neiva didn't send me her lines and then I started college and I never finished the next chapter, which I think I had intended to finish the Radio Dramas off with. It's a shame because everyone else did such a great job... Oh, and one more thing. You may have noticed the banner change... since I don't need to promote Inkblazers anymore, and I needed to have a new place to sell my goods, I set up a storenvy account. You can purchase FaLLEN posters, postcards, charms, and even iPhone cases, as well as being able to pre-order the book that comes out in February. You can preorder the Japanese or English version, and with each preorder you will get a free postcard! The postcard is only included with purchases that have been pre-ordered, though!
End Of Chapter 8, See Ya Next Year
Posted on December 26 , 2014
Because 2014 thought my Christmas was filled with too much joy, on top of everything else my dog got pretty sick. Really worried about him, so... happy thoughts sent my way would be great. This set of pages ends chapter 8, and with the Inkblazers news from the last update, I'm afraid I'm going to have to take a short break before I begin Chapter 9. I know for many webcomics the word "hiatus" may as well mean the end, but I am definitely not doing that. I'll be back in February after I have put the first book together, finished the bonus side story artwork, and done the Kickstarter artwork. I am doing the bulk of that art right now, and I'll probably post some of that in January. So there will be art updates if not new pages next month. Right now I'm just kinda bummed because I'm basically starting all over as far as promoting myself, building a following, and all that goes. Probably won't be too active online until after the New Year celebrations are over. But I'm still chugging along, I just won't post anymore pages until February after things have sort of calmed down. Hope you guys enjoy the last few days of 2014... personally, I'm ready for 2015. I'd like a nice, relaxing year where no one dies and no one loses their job and everything is peaceful. Nice and boring, that's what I want.
