Devil In Me
The wacky adventures of former Pokemon trainer Ashura and her friends as they try to foil the evil Robotnik's plans and bring the green back to the forest!
...Wait a minute, that's not right.
This comic is really about mixing my insane obsession with Disgaea and Pokemon, with fan characters, gijinkas, and OCxCanon romance thrown in there just to piss people off.
Status: ON HIATUS
Sorry guys, I've been really busy lately... I'll try to update whenever I can, but there's no guarantee I'll update soon.
Rated [T]: Coarse language, violence, Sallia being a psychopath
I'm holding an... event, I guess you could call it, so anyone who likes this comic can design a Pokemon gijinka that will have a chance to appear as a random battle, boss fight, or support/background character later in the story!

Though I thought I'd let you all know what's going on anyway. But first things first.
COLLEGE IS KILLING ME SOMEONE PLEASE MAKE IT STOP.
Okay, not that I got that out of the way... Yeah. I've been pretty busy lately. Since I don't live in the college dorms, I spend like 1-2 hours commuting between Boston and my parents' house twice a day/three days a week. I usually don't get home until 3:00pm or so, and on Mondays I'm not home until 8:30pm. Not to mention living with my parents is mentally/emotionally/psychologically fucking me up, but I'll spare you the sob story.
That doesn't mean I'm not working on DIM. On the contrary, actually. I've been planning out more of the story, working on designs for future characters, and I even got a new computer program that makes screentones awesome as hell.
I hope to bring the comic back sometime in January 2012, possibly in time to celebrate the new year with you all. I'll start drawing new pages again soon, possibly on my Thanksgiving holiday.
Thank you all for being so patient with me, and I hope to see you all when DIM returns!

On top of college bullshit, my job, and two panic attacks in the last three days (one of which landed me in the ER), I'm not sure when the next update will be.

I recently got accepted into college. I have until September 6 to get my shit together, then I'll have less time to work on this comic. On top of that, I might actually be getting a job soon too (at a video game store, no less), and if that goes through I'll have even less time to work on this comic.
Not to mention I've been so into my other projects (my original manga, UTAU, and actually having a social life) that I can't bring myself to work on a fan-based comic all that much.
This does not mean I won't be posting pages any more! I intend to see this comic through to the end, no matter what it takes.
That being said, I will not update this week. Updates will still come on Wednesdays, but they may not happen every week.
TL;DR: I'm actually getting a life. Updates will probably be less frequent.
That being said, I leave you with these parting words:
THE DARK HERO NEVER DIES

I've been really busy with college applications and stuff lately. If all goes well, I'll soon be attending a great art college to study Animation.
This means that, come September, I will probably have less time to work on this comic (and any other art that doesn't have to do with school). Until then, I plan to keep up my weekly update schedule. But just so you all know, updates will probably come very slowly if I do get into this college.
Also, next week's page may be a little late. I've been doing nothing but college application work (i.e. realism, my arch-nemesis...) for three weeks and I kind of need to draw some stuff for myself. I know this comic is an obligation or whatever, but I really need some time to relax ;;;
Just thought I'd give all 47 of you readers a heads up.

I deeply apologize for not updating in two months. I've been so preoccupied with the shit storm I call "life" and my original art that I neglected this comic. I did work on it here and there but never completely finished a page. It doesn't help that my dad brought home a puppy about three months ago and she's been taking up a a lot of my time. But that's beside the point.
I promise you guys that I won't neglect this comic again. I'll try to keep up a once-a-week schedule like I did when I hosted the comic on DeviantART. I plan on updating every Wednesday from now on, and maybe more frequently once I get a decent backlog of pages.
I've already gotten the rest of Chapter 2 and several pages of Chapter 3 planned out, the next three pages sketched, and one page lined. I'll probably pull an -almost- all night comic drawing marathon so I can get at least the next three pages lined and toned.
'Til the next update~

"Whatura! Why is page 2.06 taking so long?"
...I'm going to be honest with you. I haven't been working on it because I've been having some serious issues going on. I've been feeling so down I don't even know which way will get me back up again. On top of that I've just been so drained of energy lately that when I do draw, the comic is the last thing on my mind.
Also, I have other things that I need to do. Anime Boston (the anime convention I attend every year) is approaching, and even though it's not until April I've been working my brains out to get at least my main cosplay done on time. That in itself is very stressful work, and even with the help I'm getting I still get very anxious about it.
If I work on the comic too much while all this is dragging me down, it won't look and be its best. This isn't an excuse to slack off, I just really need to get some things in order before I can update the comic frequently like before. I hope you all understand, and hopefully things on my end will clear up some time soon.

Added Byron to the characters page. Yaaaay!
Can you tell I think he's awesome? :D?
