At last!! They arrived, hurray! And I gotta say, the printing for these books looks a lot nicer than the Japanese books. I think both would have looked great if I had been allowed to order a proof, but that's life I guess. Since I was able to see problem areas with the Japanese books, I spent a whole weekend going in, punching up the blacks a bit, reworking the cover design, and I am a lot happier with the quality this time around.

My photos are terrible quality... the finished books look MUCH nicer.






Hey now! That last image looks like something I didn't post to my website or dA... ;D
Snapshot from the bonus side comic! Will only be available in the book and/or if you buy the digital download, which is, err, coming soon. I'm having a lot of trouble making a PDF copy of this book that is at a reasonable size... what files sizes do graphic novel PDFs usually amount to?

Still working on the digital release, but I have already sent out all the books that were pre-ordered via my STORENVY site. Kickstarter people will have to wait another week, since the bookmarks that go with the $30+ tiers will be arriving sometime next week.

The book has four full-color art pages, a dust jacket that hides a hidden surprise, a behind-the-scenes look at the making of a comic page, a sketch gallery with silly artwork AND the very first drawings ever of Arma and Lamia, a huge dedication section to all the awesome people involved on Kickstarter, and a fan art gallery featuring winners and runners-up from the 2014 fan art contest. Artwork featuring the following artists, and more:

You can purchase a copy of the book at my online shop on Storenvy directly through this link, or from the banner below.


ogawaburukku.storenvy.com/coll…

Note: Apparently Storenvy has an error message popping up on "add to cart", but it still adds the book to your cart anyway. Go figure. So despite the error message you can still put the book in your cart to purchase, I believe. Sent Storenvy a message about this.

I've been posting character blogs, WIPS of artwork, comic pages, whatever, and I post finished comic pages up here before I post them on dA or the website. I also like to engage in silly chitchat ;D

The books are in! The books are in! WOOOHOOO!!!

I really like how the dust jackets came out. I wasn't expecting them to be shiny, but if you hold them in the light they also kind of sparkle due to the paper I used. There was a last minute request from the printer to adjust the black box around the cover, and it ended up being too thick on the left side, so for the English version I'm going to scoot everything a bit more to the left and make that box a little thinner. I'm also going to go in and adjust some of the blacks throughout the books. I'm guessing these will go to print this weekend, and I'll be sending the clear bookmarks out to print next week. I'll also be making the e-books available in my store probably next week sometime.

The comic hiatus will come to an end next week. I'm not sure if I'll do one pages or two, but there will definitely be at least one new page going up next Friday.


Also, look at this excellent art of Maris I got! I think the artist is still doing commissions if anyone is interested. They are REALLY good:

The free postcard will not be available once pre-orders are over. You pretty much only have about two weeks left, so once I have the books in my hand the offer is gone.

I have also updated the store to include:

Patreon is still getting updated despite the lack of comic page updates! I just posted a 4-koma comic strip featuring primarily Vox for the $5 tier and up, and this week I am going to start posting the inked pages to the Whimsical Waitress Pretty Showdown side comic. Those pages will NOT be released online anywhere else!! So if you want a sneak peak at those crazy pages, you need to join the Patreon. Once the books go to print, I will also post a bunch of character blogs to make up for the lack of those lately.

Putting together a graphic novel IS FREAKING HARD. Especially on your own! But just by going in and working on the Japanese version I can tell that the first book is always the hardest. Having a template to work from makes life so much easier. That said, I'm still going to have the book jacket artwork and inside stuff finalized before I do another Kickstarter ever.

Figured you might enjoy this FaLLEN pun. Or not, we'll see.

Me: Yay! My FaLLEN calender is finally hung up!
Roommate: Then, it wouldn't really be a fallen calender right?
Me: ...
Roommate: Get it? Because it's hung up? Not fallen?...get it-
Me: *slaps roommate*
