About Mortal Half and the Author

Synopsis

Set on the mythical world of Tienne Earth, Mortal Half is a fantasy webcomic following the trials and tribulations of a mysterious young woman named Mirra, the bearer of a cursed blade, and the unique individuals she meets throughout the course of her adventures. Expect a mix of action, comedy and romance if you decide to give my comic a go!

Artwork

The first few chapters are kind of rough, even after multiple edits. For several years I lost interest in drawing, so it was a bit of a struggle getting back on track. Personally, I feel the artwork starts getting much better past Chapter 2. Mortal Half is kind of a learning process for me, so don’t be surprised if the artwork varies from time to time!

Writing

The text/dialogue, particularly in the earlier chapters, is constantly being edited, rephrased and reworked as I see fit. I’m looking forward to the day I can finally stop trolling myself.

Comic History

Originally titled A Legend of Jeie (*snort*), Mortal Half is based on an EPIC idea that was conceived wayyyyy back in the 90’s, when I was just a wee student. Over the years it has gone through a number of plot changes, although the characters themselves have stayed roughly the same. I developed the original concept for ALOJ in junior college, not long after I started to “draw manga seriously”. The “retro” version of Mortal Half was hosted on a online manga site that was fairly popular at the time, but for the life of me I can’t remember what it was called. At some point I decided to turn the story into a novel, but then the whole process died in a GIANT FIRE.

Fast forward about a decade or so, and I’m now working to turn Mortal Half back into a webcomic, which is the format it was originally intended for.

About Me

I’m originally from Singapore. I graduated from a local design school in 2002(I think), after which I spent several years jet-setting about the globe in search of inspiration , as well as playing far, far too much World of Warcraft. Eventually, I quit my job as a flight attendant to study abroad. I have since graduated, and am the proud owner of a somewhat redundant Associates Degree in Foodservice Management… I think that sheet of paper’s still lying around here somewhere.

Currently I live in Rochester, New York, with my husband and adopted furball.
