Without Eden

Latest Comic:
Chapter 2: 22
Chapter 2: 22

Updates every Monday! Probably! Set in an alternate reality, Without Eden centres around the young orphan Jun who lives within the isolated city of Eden. With nothing to live for, he yearns for a chance to escape - yet he knows that the only way anybody could possibly leave the city is to be exiled for the heinous crime of murder. Eight years to the day his parents were murdered, however, a man overcomes the seemingly impossible and infiltrates the city of Eden. But just what does this strange person plan, and how does Jun fit into all of this... ?

Page updates

Hey everybody, just making a quick post to say that page redraw uploads are currently being done. About 10 pages are currently up, and the rest should be posted periodically throughout the next few weeks. I'm leaving the colour pages to last because they'll probably take the longest amount of time, plus I think their original versions look the best out of everything from chapter 1a. Hopefully, now that the redrawn pages are almost complete, I should be able to continue on with posting new pages.

News for Sept. 2012

Hey buddies, long time no see.

I'm dropping this news post just to say that if you've been a follower of this series when it was being updated then thank you thank you thank you for sticking around to see this. I haven't abandoned Without Eden by any means, so please don't worry! I haven't been updating at all over the past 12+ months because of a career change (that was very much for the better) that has taken up all of my time. Gladly, however, I now have the time to return to the comic and you can expect some new stuff to be coming sooner or later.

Anyway, if you're new to this series then hey! Please please ignore the low quality of the first 30 pages - I'm currently in the process of redrawing them to the same standard of the latest pages which is what has been taking up what little time I have for drawing over the past year or so.

Anyway thank you for reading this and if you enjoy the later pages then please stick around, as I'm working at this very moment to post more of that for your reading pleasure.

Merry Christmas [one day late]!

Hey gang! I figured I should post something here as I have a couple small things to talk about regarding the new year.

First off, I have a new year's resolution to put out more pages. Most of my time over the last couple weeks have been devoted to other things/being sick instead of the comic, yet I've been able to keep up with my schedule pretty easily. Starting from the new year, I'll be aiming to put out two-three pages a week to get the story moving along quicker. There *may* be a slight drop in quality due to this increase in work load, but at the same time I seem to be getting used to my new equipment, and increasing my speed when it comes to actually drawing panels and what-not. I might be asking too much of myself, which'll lead to a return to one page a week [or even another hiatus], but it might also lead to me getting used to updating more regularly and better keeping with my schedule. I'll try and work out details for updating in the coming weeks.

The other thing I'm here to talk about is that Without Eden will be getting "serialised"/"published"/I don't know in the online magazine Dream Manga starting from January 2011. It's been going for over three years now, and has a number of great series by talented artists running in it already, so I'm honoured to be considered good enough to have my work put alongside theirs. You can check out their website here. The latest issue with a preview of my own series should be posted online in the coming days, so check it out!

Hiatus & Schedule Change

Hey guys. With chapter 1 fully uploaded now, along with me having spent the last few weeks drafting chapter 2, I figured I should let you all know that I'm changing the update schedule to once a week, every Saturday. I was only uploading once every other day for this chapter as I had everything already completed before starting the comic on here. Because these pages take so long to draw [and the fact that I'm basically teaching myself how to draw again whilst making the next chapter, what with learning how to use bottled ink and dip pens], I just don't have the time to go beyond one page a week right now, I'm afraid. And even then, that's not 100% certain, as I've never given myself a schedule before! But I really enjoy working on it, and I enjoy the rush of updating the comic to see more comments and favourites so obviously I'm motivated to keep with it.

As well, what with what I've already said, I'm going to take a short hiatus as I fully draft up more pages and finish off inking the ones that are almost complete. The second chapter will begin on Saturday 20th November, as I plan on completing a few pages as back up in case anything comes up.

I hope this isn't a problem for you all, as I'm really grateful for the comments and interest people have shown [16 readers!]. I'm aiming to improve my abilities a lot for this next chapter, as I feel I've found many shortcomings recently in what I've already uploaded, and want to make this a much better reading experience for everybody involved.

Thanks for reading.
