The Latest: Rose for Shurinai, Page 4

Right after Gale saves Andy from being controlled by the Corruption virus, he attempts to put his newfound skill to the test. Sadly, nothing works out– he can’t “hear” anyone like he “heard” Andy. This newfound power is a mystery, and while it can’t completely eradicate the virus from someone’s body, it is a skill that would come in handy, if Gale is able to channel it again. Poor boy’s so stressed out.

I got help on this one from @brittu ! Of course I’m still coloring, but her suggestions really helped as far as the storytelling element goes. I trust brittu’s feedback, as I look up to her as a story teller and sequential artist. Man, you should have seen the comics she made for my OCT back in what– 2011? It was super freaking amazing!! I’m actually looking forward to seeing her launch Guardian Angel.

These few pages with Gale and Terry talking are a new kind of beast for me. Terry’s a hacker/techno mage, and drawing him interacting with these holographs and other electronics kind of takes me back to when I first saw Iron Man in theaters. Dude. Tony Stark is my peanut butter and jam. Watching the special effects animation coupled with Tony’s movements was super cool and inspiring. I’m hoping to get that far in animation where I can actually show Terry Livingston using his computers and stuff. Also, after Cup of Sugar volume 1, I’ve decided to give him his “bunny teeth”. Coupled with his fangs, they look both adorable and menacing.

Time to get back to work on this bad boy. I hope to have this page released to sponsors by the end of the week. I’m still recovering from surgery though, but here’s to hoping. Any thoughts, guys?

Rose for Shurinai (secret) Launch!

It’s about as secret as I can “make it”! I had a few pages of A Rose for Shurinai ready and have released  them to my patrons and on RfS’s offical site!

I’ll be releasing the pages on Fridays on dA and tapastic. Which will be weird–I know– considering then the official comic site might not be updated until dA and Tapastic are caught up! However, as I finish pages, my Patrons will of course see tbem.

So… I’m actually psyched about this reboot, though there are parts I’ll miss from the old version, like the part with Ash freaking out about Kitsu.


I don’t know. Something about the bottom three panels just… takes me back, you know? Man. MAN.
Gosh, I’m so hype.

So I want to get as many Rose for Shurinai pages done as physically possible in my state. Hopefully soon I’ll be able to employ my sister’s help, but she’s gotta do her college stuff. (EWWW). I’m just kidding. But seriously, my sister’s going for her illustration degree and during her time she’s learned a lot about composition, color theory and all that good jazz. She’s helped me with these recent pages of RfS and hopefully that will show! Because I struggle a lot with making comics. >>

A difference between the original Rose for Shurinai and its reboot is that I’m drawing the characters in a “chibi” style. This is because it’s easier on my hands and mind to squeeze the pages out. BUT! There will be intermission illustrations and the like where I’ll try for the more “realistic-ish” style!

Aaaand that’s it! SO! Let me know if you’ve any questions. I’d love to talk to you guys about the webcomic and the future of the project.  If you’re feeling generous and wanna help me keep TwistedFates online, I’m running a Patreon campaign where you don’t have to pay me until I get off my lazy butt and WORK! >:3

So– yeah. That’s a thing. :3c
