So big news! I just finished my almost 4 year long project: Niels Feynman‘s time traveling adventures, book 1 of 4. I so happy to have concluded that. I originally intended to be done in 2 years, but life had other plans!

Thank you everyone for joining me on this journey, for all your support and help, for everything! It meant a lot for us that you were there cheering us on, and of course the donations.

We’re very happy to have finished and we’re looking forward to future projects so stay tune as we’ll also be updating all our shops with new prints and merchandise.

Scripts for books 2-4 are almost done, I will start sketching book 2 soon. And production will begin once we raise some starting money. Until then we’ll be posting on Patreon concept art, character sheets and the rest.

 

Ghibli town

The Ghibli town mod for Stardew Valley is progressing, we finally have a main map working, now we have to fill in the buildings, NPCs and events.

We still have a long way to go, but I can say we’re still on track. For more check out the video bellow:

And for future updates you can follow me on Discord and Twitch.

Mermay event is still on and if you wish to participate you can submit your illustrations to our Facebook group or on Discord.

And I’ll be streaming how I make my illustrations on TwitchTV so see you there!

 

Happy New Year!

Hi everyone!

It’s been a long time since I posted anything here. Between changing continents, getting sick and starting a new job, my online presence had to take a back seat. I also have a new cat.¬†ūüėĽ

Image may contain: cat and indoor

But personal news aside my art projects continue and I have a bunch of new plans and projects on the way, as old ones get concluded, we’re moving forward. As always check the Projects page to see what is happening to your favorite series, as I will be updating that soon.

In “short”:
Niels book 1 will end in 2-3 months, then hiatus while we work on concept art for the next books in the series. Jun will continue to make the lineart and we are looking for someone to help with the backgrounds. Email me for  details after we figure out the budget and follow this blog for news on that.

Ghibli town mod, official work will start after I finish the Niels book. So far, me, Trent and the rest have done some artwork and coding for it. Super happy Mermaid island worked so well, we’re looking forward to expanding to a full city. Mancer has kindly offered to make the music for it.

– Ernest and Erwin mini games are in the pipeline as well. We’ll start small with some side scrollers and puzzles and depending on the resources we have both time and money, we’ll let you know what gets done this year. Hopefully at least 1.

– I’m currently teaching manga and japanese courses at local art studios. But I do plan to finish the online tutorial series Team Mana UP has so graciously sponsored, and I do apologize that it got delayed. I’m really hoping to properly set up my mini recording studio soon. Renovating in winter is painfully slow.

– Don’t forget to continue supporting us at Kofi or the other usual platforms, as the more resources we have the more we can do and faster. And let us know what your biggest favorites are by subbing to the favorite series, leaving comments etc. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, as they say. And discord link: https://discord.gg/Q5MeNHX

Cheers!

Happy New Year!

Hope you had a nice time this end of year, and we wish you a awesome new year in 2018!

new year Ernest the blue bunny hisame artwork

We’ve had a good year and reached most of the milestones we set for our selves so we want to take this opportunity to thank you, the fans for all your support!

And since it’s a new year¬†I thought this would be a great time to share this with you. Some of you have already seen similar guides before, others have not.

ernest the blue bunny hisame artwork indie comics

So just a reminder of how the industry works and why supporting your favorite indie artists is so important. They usually don’t have safety nets and do this out of passion. And at the end of this year I have seen many artists give up or get burned out and I must say the thought of closing up shop has passed my mind too, but I have people around me who still support me and so, I am still here. ^_^

So for those that don’t know these things, please have this list in mind next time you see your favorite artist post your beloved content.

Have a lovely day and hugz!

#HisameNews from May \(^o^)/

So as the month of May comes to an end here are some of the awesome things we did so far and we have plenty more planned for June!

Hisame Artwork

I published my “How Ernest met Coraline” comic on Itch. You can download the .pdf from there. I’ve included some world lore and coloring pages for you.

Itch also has a donate button if you want to support my work. Any help is much appreciated. For more more substantial donations you can use Patreon to also claim rewards like merchandise and custom art.

This month we held our second #QuickDrawCollab live stream event and we will be doing another at the end of June. If you don’t know what the event is you can read here: QDC explained.

You can join our Facebook group: Hisame Artwork Event Center for schedule and application. Anyone can join as streaming artists long as they have internet and can draw. If you just want to be a spectator here is the live stream link, we will be taking requests from the audience like last times.

We also did our first #HisameBookWeek in our Facebook group. It was a week in which we did:
– Self publishing tips & tricks
– Writing and drawing tutorials
– Publisher reviews
– Promos for indies
– Fan recommendations

This time around we featured Britney Mizumi‘s comic and more comics will be featured in next events. Anyone can submit, just¬†keep it family friendly and mark it as NSFW if it is adult.

Click on the image to go to her comic.

 

 

And last but not least a bit of bragging on my part. I got featured in the LifeSayso emagazine,  which I encourage you to go check it out.

Thanks for reading and take care!

 

 

 

#HisameNews for April \(^o^)/

Hi everyone!

It’s been a busy time for me, I haven’t had the time to do a vlog like I promised, sorry. Still I know some of you wanted to keep in touch and since we all have our lives, it’s difficult. Kids, health problems, family problems, miscellaneous problems. In the end I wanted to thank all you you who have helped me and continue to help me. I know some of you can’t anymore, hope you get well soon and see better days. Hugz!

 

For those that want to stay in the loop but have only 3min to read things here is the summary:

  • I think I found a programmer for my Ernest origin story RPG, but for now we’re doing a smaller game to improve our game developing muscles and after that we’ll see if we can do the RPG.

  • And last but not least I’ve opened a shop on Itch.io and uploaded some freebies there. I will continue to upload some more stuff there as well as the games when they are done. I think it’s easier to find my stuff there than on Patreon. Let me know which format you prefer. I prefer using Patreon because it’s easier for me to keep track and give you your rewards when donating. You can donate to me on Itch just like on Twitch.

Wish you a happy Easter, hugs!
