I write two webcomics: Miamaska and Trial of the Sun. This is where I post artwork relating to those.

originaldumbbaby asked: Ooooooh two singularities!? That sounds really cool! I'm excited to see where you'll take the story! #ExclaimationMarks

Yeah, I’m excited too! Seriously impatient to work my way back up to twice weekly posting and get back on track with the pacing I had before. 

sorry, what do you mean by singularity :?c

The technological singularity is a common theme in science fiction meaning the point at which artificial intelligence or biological augmentations begin to consistently surpass normal human intelligence. From that point, these new superintelligences would make exponentially better augmentations, leading to rapid, ever-accelerating technological development! Yay! 

patthollomew asked: Hello! Before I really dig in, just wanna let you know that my attention is absorbed by Miamaska. Absorbed. I'm sure that actually answering these questions would cross into the thpoiler zone, but I'm compelled to ask. How much of Ress and Loric's world(s?) are defined as thoroughly as Alodia? Specifically, are they post-singularity? I would just assume so, with such incredible feats of technology. But just how post? I'm stoked to see your take on incredible futures, but will Amity/we ever see?!

Glad you are enjoying it!

They’re actually post two singularity-type events, one of them being fairly recent, though limited to a subset of the population. Their first singularity event didn’t go so well. You’ll definitely get to see more of their world since Loric and Ress are perspective characters (one scene in this chapter I can promise takes place there!), but if Amity ever gets to there, well… that’s a bit in the spoiler territory, isn’t it?

Miamaska and Trial of the Sun’s new facebook cover images. Fiiiinally got around to updating them. 

Completed commission #23! Gender-swapped Amity and Aleco.

Completed commission #23! Gender-swapped Amity and Aleco.

July 4th’s TOTS update will be a bit late. ‘Cause, you know, July 4th and all.


THE ARTWORK PROVIDED IS FOR PERSONAL USE ONLY. PUT SIMPLY, YOU CAN’T RESELL IT IN ANY FORM NOR USE IT IN ADVERTISING IN ANY WAY. Collaborative stuff is ok though. These are drawn at web resolution. You can contact me privately for commercial estimates at jeinu@aura-core.com.

Last call for summer commissions! I stop taking orders on the 5th, and probably won’t reopen them until late September.

brossuno asked: As a somewhat random question, what's the highest number of notes/reblogs you've ever got on a post before? Because if I had to guess, it would probably be that Avatar art you did on your 'other stuff' tumblr. I only ask because at one point it was like 50, and I looked again and it's like 900. Haha. (I totally would have put this on your 'other stuff' tumblr, but there's no ask function there)

I think my background walkthroughs each have like 1000+ notes, highest one is nearing 2000 maybe? Those keep getting new life in reblogging when someone posts them to an art reference tumblr. Ming-hua is getting pretty popular though, who knows. 

For the uninitiated, my other tumblr is over here. (Also I enabled asks on it because apparently that wasn’t the default! (Or maybe I turned it off and forgot (who knows))).

mallowninja asked: Is it common for Enoran women to have children as early as 19? Is that considered relatively old for the beginning of motherhood, or young? I figure it's at least not frowned upon, considering Minano's age corresponds exactly to when Lelia first became a mom (and to Minano, too).

Fairly normal, though not necessarily expected, for their class (upper secondary). The majority of Enorans in the third class will hold off having children until their 20s as they live in rural communities requiring a good deal of labor from both men and women.
