I finished watching Made in Abyss this morning and was like, well, fanart is pretty much inevitable. I just have to. It's what needs to happen. And here we are. XD

I was pretty torn on whether I wanted to draw either Nanachi or Marulk though (as I loved them both dearly). Ultimately, I went with Nanachi, as their design would offer a little bit more of a challenge. (That damn headgear. Even when looking for references within the show, it's notable that the character is very frequently only shown from the bangs down. So it is a little bit improvised on my part.) As for Marulk? Maybe that'll be a drawing for another time. I loved this show enough to be willing to draw more from it. ^_^

(Also, I did not draw the background. It's ripped from the opening to give this some kind of backdrop.)

I don't have much else to say, other than that it feels good to have posted two pieces this week. Neither are the main comic, but when you're working on buffer and writing stuff you can't show yet (leaving nothing TO post), I sorta fear it sometimes looks like I'm not doing anything. So going on a tangent for some fanart once in a while (which I think I said I was going to do a bunch of times back at the start of this hiatus... whoops), at least it gives me something tangible to show you once in a while.

So, I hope you like this. Take care for now! ^_^

There is no need to rush. The people who read your comics, love what you do so we will be waiting until you are ready.I hope you are feeling better.

A lot of the very most vitally important stuff is happening when it looks, to other people, like we're not doing anything.

I was looking for a way to buy the physical copy of your comic on Amazon. I was about to order it when I realized that it is being sold under the name "Jocelyn Didomenick." The artwork was edited to show that name as well. If this is a pen name, I apologize, but it is important that you know about this if it is someone else claiming your work. By the way, take as much time on the hiatus as you need. Your health is a much larger priority than getting the comic out by a certain day. (Here's the link in case you didn't know:

I am aware of this, but thank you for looking out for me. The good news is that nobody is really claiming my work. DiDomenick is actually my last name. To clarify: I use "Jocelyn Samara" (my first and middle name), as my professional name because I've spent my life having my last name mispronounced and misspelled. So I opted to use something a bit easier and rolls off the tongue better anyway. But at the time when I put out Volume 1, I hadn't legally even changed my name to Jocelyn yet, and I hadn't settled on Samara for my middle name either (hence why the middle initial is a "C" on the first book too). If there's ever a re-release of the first book, I'd really like to fix the name so it matches up with everything else.

Anyway, while it's not stolen, it IS a resale (which is allowed on Amazon). That said, it doesn't support the author when you buy it resale through Amazon (and it costs more for the buyer to get it there anyway). Fortunately, if you scroll down to the reviews, you'll see a number of readers redirecting would-be buyers to Lulu for the less expensive official version of the sale that actually supports me.

So if you (or anyone reading this) is interested in purchasing the books, I recommend going here:

Is there a reason that volume 3 is missing from that page?

Just wondering what happened to volume 3! I'm a new reader and I'd like to get them all but...there's 1, 2, and 4 D:

Man this looks cool. I wonder if I should watch this anime...

It's kinda an odd experience to binge read this comic and have the pop-culture references go from '11-'12 to '16-'17 in the space of three days. ^_^'
