I'm pretty bummed that I am not able to update. I am stuck in Europe working and doing photo ref research for the next story arc of DE. Mostly I'm trapped on a ship not seeing any daylight and tired all the time. I finally was able to borrow a converter plug and all I can do is upload a picture I drew in Sept.
After reading One Punch Man webcomic and manga version(check it out) I really would love to redraw parts of DE.
This picture is something I would imagine in chapter "You Are What You Eat". Saturno pre-human club. I draw him way too cutesy now. (I was comparing body types too. Current Saturno would be the size of that dude on the bench.) The tone of the story and art has changed comparing the 1st arc to the 2nd. I would have to redraw the entire chapter if my character design for Saturno has changed that much.
I'm also thinking about the book prints. It's easy to make that first book and sell, but how do you make it worth getting the 2nd, 3rd book...
I am considering hiring a cover artist(or more) if I am stuck in a 40-60 hour job again this coming summer. My art has always been weak in full illustration. If I can't put in the hours I should commission someone that's better than me.
I didn't have much luck 2 years ago trying to get people to pay to put in their personal ad in the DE prints, but if you are interested... I will probably try that again this coming summer. More info later.
I'm really tired. I don't know if I'm really gonna get a break anytime soon to draw a worthy page... or even being on land to upload. Take care guys.
You are an incredible artist and an amazing storyteller. You give the demon world such a sense of richness and whether you decide to publish DE as a book, start a Patreon thingy or whatever, I would gladly contribute to help out.
Please don't stress about not being to update. If or when you choose to update, it will be worth the wait. :)
I want a Demon Eater book! :-D Aw man, I was reading your comic for ages before I started hosting my own. I love the early chapters where he's running around as a tiny, conniving, murderous lizard; li'l baby Saturno.
Sorry you're bummed, I hope you get to reunite with your drawing again soon! Can't wait to see what happens next
You're a rad artist. Don't think of other artists as better, they are different and have different processes, you can't compare them. It's like comparing apples with the abstract concept of love. you can't.
What you CAN do is know that you are rad, and that you've got an audience captivated with your story, both because of the plot AND because of the art.
If there's anything we can do to help, don't hesitate to ask!
I would totally buy a book. I love your story! It's so original. It starts off like an ancient origin story, like the Aztec Coatlicue, but then it grows into what makes us human. I think your style suits the story but some earlier pages could be cleaned up a bit I guess.
As sad as i am to hear that you will be delayed i am hoping that you enjoy your time in Europe.
as long as you are there if you get any time go see some sights and don't be to worried about getting new comics for us.
i don't know what part of Europe you are in but there are surely many things to see, hear, taste, and touch along the way.
go enjoy time at pubs enjoying the local night life, go see a show or see a festival if you are in a area with one. and all around have some fun.
