favorite webcomic ever

anonymous asked:

Hey Diana! Today I turned 19 and just wanted to say thanks for over two years of a great webcomic experience. I know that it takes a lot of effort to create a page so that's why I admire every update and look forward to them so much. Thanks for creating one of my favorite webcomics ever and for working so hard for your fans. You're genuinely one of my biggest inspirations as an artist. Also, if I may ask, how old were you when you started writing/drawing (specifically Lonely Vincent)? Thanks :)

Hey, happy belated birthday!! I really appreciate this, you’re so sweet to send me this message, thank you! And oh gosh… Alright, I think I was at least 15-17 when I first started drawing this comic (I’m 26 now!). And as some of my older readers know (*narrows eyes at all of you* don’t you dare tell anyone) it was MUCH different back then. I will forever lament how long it took me to draw this comic, but I still maintain that its current incarnation is better than whatever I came up with in the beginning, haha!


Man, short kid. Still, his heart had lead him here. It was, after all, his guiding ‘key.’ Regardless, a hear on this world had called out, the great power hidden within it calling to be saved from its apparent fate.

Which, in practice, meant he’d just about tripped over a kid with a wound on the side of their head and a very clearly nasty attitude.

After all, she had, in fact, just stabbed him.

“Woah there, kiddo. I know there’s a saying about something like this, but that doesn’t mean you have to take it so literally.” Something about pickaxe in the gut…? Ah well, he’d never invest in learning that language. But they were at a tiny bit of an impasse here, weren’t they?
