Essence of Time .:. 0 by Deamond-89 Essence of Time .:. 0 by Deamond-89

Personal Note:

I got to admit, I wasn't sure if I should even post these pages or not. Those following me for a long time know Essence of Time as my original story which I worked on since I was 13 years old. 2008 I made my first attempt to draw it out as an actual manga. 76 pages in, I felt my skills had changed so much, that I wasn't happy with it anymore and started anew, managing another 24 pages before stopping drawing the manga all together.

Drawing mangas and working on my own story was nice, but it is tiring and time consuming while at the same time being rather predictable for -myself- because I already know what is going to happen. So at the time, I got sucked into RPing and I completely love it because I get to create characters and content and because someone else is involved, I never know which direction things will take. I absolutely adore it. But after looking through my EoT stuff again last week, I felt this urge to redraw my characters completely and actually started sketching pages again for fun. I didn't intend to share the pages, drawing them for myself only, but seeing how my old followers reacted when seeing my EoT characters again, I decided to share them after all.

Now, why would I think about not sharing them? Because I can't promise whether I will keep EoT up or not. Firstly I don't know whether I will have the time to work on it or not. I have stressful courses and exams at university, start working from 7.30am to 5pm in October, still love RPing and don't want to cut time doing that,... I really don't know when or even IF I will be able to work on EoT again. I also can't tell whether my motivation for it will last. If I don't feel like working on it and would rather work on something else, I -will- work on those other things. I will not allow it to turn into a responsibility and pressuring me because then I will lose all motivation for it immediately again. So it could be that there will be a new page after just a few days, it could be that there are no new pages for months.

Yeah Dea, i'm was so exited to see you uploaded pages of EoT again. The story had such a great impact on me and it was so inspiring that I became a writer as well :) And thank you for Zeyir, he started my obsession for names that begin with the letter 'Z' ;) I hope you will finish the story one day, but I understand your perspective. Again, thank you so much for the incredible story that has become a part of my life, that I never want to let go <3

Thank you very much for your kind comment! <3 It means a lot to me because this is the kind of stuff that often keeps me going when I myself fall on hard times. When I feel stuck as an artist and don't feel like it is worth picking up my pen again or not. That's the time I remember that even though I draw mostly for myself, others are influenced by my work too. People enjoy my work and feel inspired in their own way, whether it is as an artist or writer. That's what's so beautiful about creating something: Sharing it. I myself, when not feeling like drawing anything, read or watch something sometimes that then in return moves something inside me that inspires me to go and draw something of my own. So I am very glad I was able to help inspire you! <3 And thanks a lot for your nice words. (They are exactly what I needed today xD *goes back to drawing*)

now you've done it. you've made me log in & comment on something for the first time in years. :D

(if something comes out of this, know that i'll be ecstatic to see it & if you ever need me i'll be ready to assume my position as the resident EOT encyclopedia again. :D if you don't end up working on it more, i'll just be happy to know you're still making art and wish you all the best <3)

!!!! NELL!!! <3 *clings to*

Ahaha, thank you QvQ)/ I still can barely believe how many people remember and love EoT still. So yeah, going to post the pages here after all. I can't make any promises I will keep it up but knowing that you guys are still here certainly helps motivating me.

i'm sure there are more who'd be excited to see this, but they've stopped using the site/lost touch like i did. i wouldn't know that you posted this if ale hadn't told me! but no matter what, EoT was a huge part of my life and i'll never forget it, i'm certain you have affected many more in the same way. <3

Thanks hun <3 Yeah, I am surprised myself. But at the moment, I really do feel motivated to rewrite/redraw the entire universe even just so it matches my standards that I have in world building today. *totally read all of EoT:FJ, EQ:CoA, etc again*
