New Pages Here And On Patreon.
Posted on February 5 , 2016
I actually already finished the next two pages as well (pages 6-7) but those won't be available on the website until next Friday. I have already penciled pages 8-9... my god, I may finally have a buffer going! If you want to see next week's pages, they are available to all tiers on Patreon at this link: https://www.patreon.com/posts/4346251

New pages, yay. Working on a lot of stuff for the Patreon account, and will be posting a video of me toning the righthand page for this update in just a little bit.
Ch. 10 Starts, GMI Awards
Posted on January 18 , 2016
I was behind, but I'm catching up pretty quickly! Adding quite a few additions today. The cover art and title page for Ch. 10 are up, so Chapter 10 has oficially begun! I also included a New Years greeting card I did for my Patreon patrons, so yay! Also added a new header image asking you guys to vote for FaLLEN on GMI for the awards. Last year some cheaters made it no fun... looks like the same old same old this year, haha. But third would not be bad :p I am actually making thank you art right now for last year's voting, which I hope to have up by the end of this week. Me? Behind schedule? Perish the thought.
Cold Has Me By The Balls!
Posted on January 8 , 2015
Welp, that cold ended up being my yearly Hell Cold, which is when I am basically bedridden for like a week. It's a super cold, and it sucks. Really couldn't do much of anything art related, but I did manage to drag my laptop into bed to at least update the website. I added a newish image of Arma in the official art gallery and a bunch of Ora fan art. The group fan art now has its own section. I also set up a Facebook fan page for FaLLEN, which I've been asked to do by so many people... finally did it! Finally! You can check it out here: FACEBOOK PAGE YAYS.
Happy New Year!

First entry for 2016!! I am starting the year out with a cold, but I hope to have some new illustrations posted along with the first page of chapter 10 this week. It's nice to finally be done with Chapter 9! It took an entire year to do because I was going through a lot of family troubles (I almost got a divorce, but we're working on it and things are getting better) both in 2015 and 2014. Some family members passed away and I found out this year that a dear friend of mine from high school passed away a few years ago (news travels slow when you live across the planet). But when things were going well, things were GREAT. I sold out of the first volume of FaLLEN, I made a ton of new friends, got asked to be a guest at a few conventions, etc. I will hopefully be at a few more cons in the US this year as well, and I plan to release Vol. 2 AND I want to get more chapters drawn. I don't want a repeat of last year! I think this year will be different, though. I already have a template to follow from the first book and I think my family troubles are mostly taken care of. So here's to a better 2016!
Merry Christmas! Oh, I'm Late...

I had this up last night on Patreon, so now I'm posting the new pages here. I've also got an older chibi image of Ora I didn't post last week and for Christmas I got some surprise fan art of Neiva! Best present.
At Last, An Update!!
Posted on December 18 , 2015
Geez, it took over a month for the new pages to go up! I am optimistic that I'll have a post go up on Christmas Day, but I might not on New Year's Day because for Japan that's the big family holiday, and I have to see my in-laws who, believe it or not, do not have the internet. I may post that week's chapter on DeviantART since they allow scheduled postings, but we'll see. That page will be the very last page of this chapter, which ran long at 36 pages. Still, I can't believe it has taken me a WHOLE YEAR to do one chapter. I think I did four chapters last year... ridiculous, and unacceptable. Since a lot of what I have been dealing with since April of last year is finally coming to an end, though, I really really hope next year will be different. I will have to scramble a bit and try to do a chapter every 1.5 months in order to make my Book 2 schedule as planned. Definitely not going to have a repeat of this year.
Also... check out the new Christmas pic I posted! I say "new" but I actually drew it almost a year ago for the calendar...
Back From America
Posted on December 4 , 2015
I'm back. Sorry for the brief hiatus... I was hoping to get back to posting new pages this week, but I had to settle some problems that happened while I was gone regarding the house, returned Kickstarter packages, and general post-trip stuff. But definitely next week, definitely.
I know this is not as good as a new page, but I have added another illustration, this time featuring the whole group of Guardians. I did this for the calendar earlier this year.
On returning, I did use Patreon funds to purchase a sweet new tool to help make screen toning go faster. Check it out here.
