give me your suggestions!

4 pages this week, plus this thing!

so, we're getting closer to 1000 fans. i was going to upload this to say thank you, but then i thought...i should let you guys decide what i draw for the 1000 mark! so what do you want to see? maybe i should reveal what sindri REALLY looks like...give me suggestions for what you want!

also, i now have 40 copies of chapter 2, and 40 copies of the new chapter 1 variant cover ready to sell at MCM Expo at the end of this month! if you want one, come and see me in the comic village! i'll also have a couple of copies of my old book "ukin", about 10 copies of the original hemlock chapter 1 cover, and a few second-hand things i'm selling to help me fund my trip to beijing with my university this july.

hemlock #2 is not being released for sale online just yet, because i want to tweak the cover a little more first.

@Nyanko-tan: i do love drawing human form tristan~ don't worry, richmond makes an appearance again in chapter 3 XD

@Zen: thank you so much! thank you for reading <3
@vapidity: everyone does seem to love richmond for some reason XD
@darkenergy: i have pages covering the next three weeks at least, don't worry!
@bluecrow: haha what is this richmond love from everyone!?
@Catiris: there is a reason, but i haven't said what it is yet ;D haha i think her dress is really more "bohemian" than peasant, her dresses are mainly based on the ones worn by carl larsson's wife (swedish painter around 1900 i think). thank youuu <3
@Ipsen: ohh, thank you so much! :D that's so lovely to hear!
@Stitchedbukket: haha well, it'll probably take me another year or two to finish this completely...orz haha he hasn't been seen properly yet, but i'm wondering if i should reveal his face!
@Ryo: hahaha! ^^ and yup, smackjeeves members can add comics to their "favourites" so a comic has a number of fans counted. i am also pretty broke right now trying to get to china -n-
@Mythee: aww, thank you~ <3

@dragon8writer: oh gosh, i completely forgot that it was a friday the 13th, i've been so busy and stressed recently. well, it's MEANT to be a friday update...XD
@cure: haha that's what i was wondering, whether it SHOULD be revealed or not...but then again, his face will be revealed in a flashback in chapter 3 within the next few weeks anyway.
@Paul: welcome aboard! ^^ thank you!
@Lyco: i'll be coming by your table too! >w< i want me a cafe suada! haha thank you so much~

@Shaula: aww, i love drawing sisu (he's one of my favourites haha) but i think he's a bit far away in the story...his next appearance is a flashback in chapter 4. still a while away. also i'm trying to design a helmet for him but i can't quite get it right yet >_<
@Guest: thank you so much! well, it's not really a lovey-dovey romance story, but who knows, they might have a happy ending anyway ;D

May 12th, 2011, 3:44 pm

Whatever you do will be amazing as always! I'll be at the ready to buy #2. <3 <3

May 12th, 2011, 3:51 pm

Will you be doing artist editions of volume 2, like you did with 1? :D

May 12th, 2011, 3:56 pm

yay, I love the colors and her long neck c:

May 12th, 2011, 4:26 pm

I agree with the three brothers thought, but seeing Lumi when she was in her slumber would be a LOVELY picture.

May 12th, 2011, 4:28 pm

I was thinking you should draw Tristan in his human form with Richmond the snail C:

They are two that aren't seen so much...

May 12th, 2011, 4:38 pm

oh my gooooood

i love this update. it explains so much, im so happy :D

HEMLOCK. huh. well i hope sindri doesnt cause too many problems for lumi during his concious time. haha, he should just spread rumors about simo's natural hair color.

May 12th, 2011, 4:59 pm


I just wanted to say that Hemlock is amazing; the story-line is incredibly interesting and you art is awesome. Thanks for making my Thursdays good.

May 12th, 2011, 5:01 pm

I agree with the Tristan and Richmond idea. I like the three brothers, but I quite miss seeing Richmond.

May 12th, 2011, 5:07 pm

Ooo, congrats! And +whatever to the Tristan and Richmond scene, perhaps with a little background. I don't think we've seen spring/summer scenery yet, have we? (ahaha too many expectations. I would definitely prefer more comic pages to you going insane over a thank you picture :)

May 12th, 2011, 5:10 pm

Fully backup on Richmond idea!!! I tatally love him! GO for him go for him!

May 12th, 2011, 5:54 pm

ehhh I feel like it's been forever since I commented...

ahhh loving the updates, your art is lovely as ever, and the encounter with King Simo is intriguing...
I forget, was there a reason she wore her hair up? or that she wears it short, for that matter?

(: her dress is beautiful, I love her "peasant" outfit before its transformed, and then picking out the similarities and differences in the fashion <3

May 12th, 2011, 7:33 pm


HEE I enjoy this series of yours! :D Your art is quite an original style to me, very lovely and confident. The storyline strikes my curiosity very much; both solumn yet adorable.

Keep up the awesome work, and know that you have another Hemlock fan! <3

May 12th, 2011, 7:47 pm

I must invest in buying the volumes of Hemlock... I heart this comic so much! You know. After you put it online. XDD

Oh! As for the 1000 fan mark, can we see Lumi's husband? (Or are we not supposed to...? XD) Human Tristan is also okay! XDDD He's so cute. c:

May 12th, 2011, 7:52 pm

You MUST draw Sindri, now that you've mentioned him! ^^

Also, how can I be a part of this view count? Do I need to have a smackjeeves account?

Also, I plan on buying Hemlock books once I get some munny T_T I'm kind of broke right now...

May 12th, 2011, 8:38 pm

Draw anything you liiike~ ovo *loves all your characters and art. Hurr.*

May 12th, 2011, 9:29 pm

I agree with other people - ANYTHING you draw will be pretty great :D

May 12th, 2011, 9:31 pm

god I want her clothing...
you should draw a picture of Sindri and Lumi for the 1000+ mark!

May 12th, 2011, 10:21 pm


love your comic!
yeah, one draw something with sindri and lumi, please x)

May 13th, 2011, 12:51 am

i'm all curiosity about sindri!!

May 13th, 2011, 2:33 am

Loving it. :)

It's awesome. :D (Though I am slightly surprised, considering the subject, that there'll be no update today - on Friday the 13. ^^

May 13th, 2011, 4:55 am

imo, sindri's true looks should be revealed in the comic.. i love mysterious characters! as for 'thank you' picture..maybe ulla and lumi? and richmond is awesome too <3

May 13th, 2011, 5:03 am


May 13th, 2011, 6:19 am

Have another fan - just found this and added to my bookmarks.

Love the story so far - keep it up.

May 13th, 2011, 6:24 am

Ahh, another beautiful update... I love these sort of dilemmas, where the curse the character is suffering (in this case Lumi's wedding ring) actually protects them from harm, makes it far more risky to remove >.<

And congratulations on so many fans m'dear, I'll definitely be one of many to stop by your expo table (when I take a break from mine! XD)

May 13th, 2011, 7:11 am

Oh, I miss Suul! I think a drawing of Suul and Tristan would be great! The story is getting bettter everyday! Aaaaand I don't like the king. >.<

May 13th, 2011, 10:12 am

Oh my god, I just finished reading all of Hemlock in like, an hour. I swallowed all it's awesomeness. And I have to tell you, I'm trully amazed and inpired by your imagination, your skills, and everything!!
Thank you for this awesome story, and congrats on the almost 1000 fans, you deserve millions! ;U;

I'll save up and buy the first chapter, and wait eagerly to buy the second one and for every friday from now on.

Seriously, you are awesome, and so are all your characters!!

I'd love to see Suul for the 1000 fans drawing~

May 13th, 2011, 2:07 pm

Whoa, Suul is great! Lumi learned a lot! And Richmond is sooooo cute! The deserve some attention, for sure! =P

May 13th, 2011, 7:59 pm

Made a tvtrope page. There's not much on it right now but more can be added.

May 14th, 2011, 12:06 pm

Yay, Hemlock #2!

Wooohooo, I can't wait for Hemlock #2!
I think I'm also going to get the alternative Cover version of #1 xD
I'm such a whore for your comics, it's not even funny T_T

May 14th, 2011, 8:08 pm

I would love to see Richmond and Tristan:D
I cant wait for the next volume!!

May 14th, 2011, 8:54 pm

Just saw how to get on the fan count, now I just have to figure out where the favorite thingy is...

For the 1000 mark, I think I'll be the odd person here and say I'd like to see a preview of Sisu. He's the only one we haven't seen so far past the first panel where he's introduced, as we've at least gotten some shots in of Sindri as king and we've got modern ones of Simo now.

However, anything that you do will be lovely. Having this update always makes my Friday better, and whenever it's on Thursday, that just means I get a treat that much earlier. :3

May 14th, 2011, 10:15 pm

Love the comic!

Man, this comic is sooo good! I really hope you finish it and post it up here for us!

I can't help but wish that Sindri and Lumi would fall in love...

But..this isn't a love story is it?

Edit: Whoops..never mind. It is.

May 15th, 2011, 2:11 am

87: Simo, you are so incredibly rude. It's not like Lumi even wanted to marry your evil monster brother anyway, you ass. =T
...He sure is pretty though.

88: I love her indignant look in the last panel so much. Your layouts are always so excellent<3 (Insert more crabbing about what a jerk Simo is to poor adorable Lumi)

89: I love the dramatic close ups so much on this page. Sooo pretty. I hope the drastic measures don't hurt Lumi somehow.

90: D:< SIMO, YOU DICK. Thank god for Sindri's ring, man. Keep psycho jerk pretty boys from killing poor innocent witches.


May 15th, 2011, 2:56 am

Woooow! Exactly 1000 fans! Congrats!
You rock! :)))))))

May 15th, 2011, 11:16 am


I found the Favorite button! :D

May 15th, 2011, 2:22 pm

I just have to say I totally LOVE this! Your art is sooooo pretty!
I even tried doing some art with ink today, but I need thinner brushes... Update soon!

November 10th, 2011, 1:19 am

This is a rather random question, but what colour wold you say Lumi's hair is? I've been going through the coloured pages trying to figure it out @__@

November 10th, 2011, 5:01 am

@ChocolateOrange: lumi’s hair is a kind of greeny-blue, i guess turquoise/teal maybe but darker. actually, i tend to colour her hair whatever matches the rest of the picture, so, it’s not really set in stone.

but it's most like this picture, i'd say.

May 27th, 2012, 1:07 pm

Maaan, such an arrogant jerk, fuuuuu!
He is just as bad as his brother. Why I have the feeling only Daylight was nice boy..?
(Or maybe not even him, oh noes)

September 27th, 2012, 7:22 pm


Lumi is so pretty, in a disheveled kind of way. :)
