Today is no-update day again (sorry, exams!) But I’m working on the next 4 pages. Hmm… maybe I should do some sort of MS-bomb when I finish them?
Meanwhile, here you have a new Syrma sketch!
When I have time I like to try new materials and I always wanted to test this style with brown paper.
Note that I’m open to receive fanart for my non-updating weeks!
You’ll be featured on the latest comic page the whole week! 😀
MS Vol1 Color Proof!
Also I’ve received a color proof of the first volume. This makes me wonder how great it would look if I ever do a KS for MoonSlayer. Because I’d go fullcolor with it.
But for the moment I’ll stick with the B&W version. The grayscale pages look wonderful this way. And the color pages are ok! I have to investigate now the B&W + Special pages in color. I’ve found a printer with that option 😀

Happy Holidays everyone! Here is Henna ready for the festivities.
I did this one last year, but I forgot to post it D:
In MoonSlayer’s world they celebrate the Winter Solstice too. Alfar and Sidhe celebrations are quite similar to Yule (so expect holly and mistletoe) while Grey Dragons celebrate something like Sol Invictus aka Unconquered Sun.
OMG, look at this image of Sol Invictus, he even had 2 horses, like the Arundar Mold. The human world is wonderfully interconnected.
Last week I received the proof copy of the test edition of vol1, but some health issues (I was literally agonizing last Monday, those who follow me on twitter know it) and the sudden death of my main computer (currently trying to restore it) kept me from posting it here.

The good news: It looks fantastic. Only a few tones of gray fail in some pages (mainly Alherani’s cloak in night scenes and looks like a printing error) but the overall impression is 8/10. I cannot expect more from Createspace, really. In another world, or another time, if I had enough people interested in a book I could try to do a KS campaign. But I think it’s not the case. Maybe for the complete story?
The size is A5, it has +160pages. So it’s big and pretty.
Anyway, I hope to have the first volume finished next year. I only have to complete the extra stories (Lalaii’s tree got lost and I had it already pencilled) and fix the English version (hey, looking for beta testers!)
Finally I got a bit of time to work on my part of the SpiderForest traveling sketchbook. Such an amazing project!
Made with brush markers, chinese ink (lines and first wash in greys) and Sakura markers (greys) over a mechanical pencil sketch. This one could be considered my last #Inktober of this year.
Visit SpiderForest, the comic collective which MoonSlayer belongs to.
MoonSlayer was reviewed by the lovely cast of the comic My Hero. Check it out!
I only have to say to Lark that my Elven-to-Common translation skills are improving, but my Elven is nearly perfect :_D Also that Syrma wants to punch him in the face XD While Menkar suggested a duel with bare hands.
And I hope to please Hasera in the current chapter. I’ll try to do my best.
