Gravston Volume 4 Cover by Rogo-the-Golden-Boy
Gravston Volume 4 Cover
This took foreverrrrrr @.@

But I had a lot of fun with this image! It's a remake of this image - rogo-the-golden-boy.deviantart… - which I did ages ago now and always wanted to revamp. I changed the colour scheme to green and made the poses a bit more dynamic. If you wondered, this volume cover is meant for Chapters 13-16, so basically the wrap up of the Raven Arc and the beginning of the War Arc, hence the images you see here.

I regret not putting Pippa on this cover a little bit but ce la vie.

Anyway, I will probably make another of these soon so... keep an eye out!

Peace out!

Gravston Volume 3 Cover by Rogo-the-Golden-Boy
Gravston Volume 3 Cover
So while I'm on hiatus, I decided to get around to doing a bunch of Volume covers like I'd always planned to. It's also a good excuse for me to do some more colour work, as it's been a while. 

So I present the cover for Volume 3, which covers Chapters 9-12 of Gravston.

And it's an arc I... have a lot of regrets over.

So much so that... I am actually going to be remaking them, along with Chapters 5-8. More on that news to follow in the coming months but I'm excited for it.

I decided to focus this cover on David and Helios because that really is the main conflict of this arc... or at least it should be...

Anyway, hope you all enjoy and expect more in the coming weeks!

In the past few months you may have noticed I’ve been a lot quieter than I usually am. That’s largely to do with me adjusting to my new job – 9-5 working hours will do that – but it’s also partly because I’ve been finding myself a little lost. I love Gravston with all my heart, and as such I’ve been working on it now for around five years straight, with only tiny breaks here and there.

I am terrible when it comes to giving myself time off for breaks in my day to day life and normally I can cope just fine.

But I think the time has come for a break. I feel like if I keep pushing myself this hard, the quality will start to drop and that’s the last thing I want.

So I’ll be taking some time off from Gravston to recharge and relax during the months of June and July and I’ll be using August as my month to get Chapter 36 ready for September.

I’ll be also using this time to look at some other side projects I have wanted to find time for. I wont go into detail about what they are here, but I promise you’ll probably like them.

Either way, Gravston will be on hiatus from June 12 (the end of Chapter 35) until September 1st, so I hope you all enjoy the rest of the chapter and I hope to see you all again on September 1st.

Thank you all for reading,

Rogo

Gravston Chapter 34 Cover by Rogo-the-Golden-Boy
Gravston Chapter 34 Cover
Why do I constantly fall behind on uploading these?

Alrighty so this is the first of three covers in a row that focus on the Ravencoats - the House of Raven's personal guard - and we start with Asterion.

This cover caused me so much hassle. I went through several poses as I struggled to figure out where to go with this. I at one point considered having Asterion holding a golden ball of string, but I figured no one would get why, given his mythological connection is very... oblique at best.

(Hint: Asterion is one of the names for the Minotaur)

I have plans for Asterion, as he is a character I'm just now pinning down in my head and I look forward to developing him more in the future. And maybe giving him a better weapon than that silly hammer XD

The Votary by Rogo-the-Golden-Boy
The Votary
The tragedies of war create incomparable rage,
the tragedies of famine create ravenous hunger,
the tragedies of pestilence create lonely suffering,
and the tragedies of death create endless despair,
but with the fall of the lost innocent,
all shall be calmed,
all shall be saited,
all shall be comforted,
and all shall be brought into eternal joy,
for you all shall thank him,
and fall to your knees,
and worship him.

Hey Rogo!  It's me Shinobi-King!  I was wondering if you will make new volumes of Gravston?  If you can't do it yourself, get published by Yen Press!  I must have it in my home...xD

The answer to that is yes, I will be doing a kickstarter at some point this year to get Vol 2 printed up (as well as a Vol 1 reprint likely). So keep an eye out for that - Vol 2 is on standby atm due to well... everything that's happened the past few months XD
