New illustrations for the lore section of the website! I made the linearts during Inktober, trying to imitate classic friezes.
These are the old ones. I think I’ve improved a bit, didn’t I?
Now I only have to finish the Arundar frieze. But that one will be a bit different!
Do you like them? I’m planning to turn them into a set of prints 🙂
Remember, tomorrow we’ll have a new comic page! 🙂

I made a MS Halloween pic for the very first time!
Can you guess all the small hints and references to the comic?
Why they dressed like that? 😀
Vote right now to see the full pic! 😀 (And you will help MS to be more visible!)

Yes. I have to start studying again for the public examinations to apply for a teaching job. That’s my life since I finished my studies.
But this is not a hiatus.
I had put this comic on hiatus before, a whole year, and that was bad for me and for the comic. I had to completely start over and regain my readership.
So this time I’d do a completely different thing. I’ll update the comic once per two weeks (two times per month) or I’ll will try it.
I started a different method to work on the comic. Instead of doing each page separately (draft, sketching, inking, post-process, toning, lettering) one by one, I’ll do that by scene. So I’ll work a bunch of 4-5 pages at the same time.
I did that with the end of chapter 5 and the process was a lot quicker! I have less hours to work on the comic, and I have to finish other projects too, but I don’t plan to abandon MoonSlayer a whole year again!
So please, add the comic to your favourite RSS reader or follow me on your social media of choice. New pages are always announced there!
As always, my Patrons will receive all the pages in advance! 🙂

We’re back! This time with our favourite bodyguard, former marshal and dragon without honor: Kaeso Cetus Menkar!
Menkar is one of the characters who suffered more changes from the beginning.
These are two of the first sketches I did of him, inspired by Rome tv series Titus Pullo. I have more awful sketches. Just wait for my sketchbook XD
I adore this series.
But I also used for the early drawings references from Spartacus. Yes. =3 Because, you know, Andy was awesome. The perfect Menkar.
Later I decided that he would have long hair and beard (so barbarian!), and definitely he had to wear a different kind of clothes!
So he became this, with different face features, a good tunic and a wonderful wind sword!
And I’m so happy for that.

Some illustrations of the Witch of Henna over the years.
Did you know that Alherani had red hair in the first sketches?
Info about the sketchbook
More news about the skecthbook! I’ve finished the book layout and the pages (~78!) with more than 200 drawings, ink linearts and sketches B&W.
Only have to finish the comments about every drawing and the final cover design.
About the cover… uh. I designed it to match the future comics, with the same size (A5). But I’m very indecise about the illustration.
The first design I did was using the “Skies will cry” digital sketch. I like this one very much because this was the provisional cover of the comic, and the color scheme is perfect for the layout. The second one with my latest Syrma’s watercolor. It maybe fits better for a future artbook?
Which one is your favourite?
