FYI, the statues are the first Red Queen Vena and her husband, the King Roese of Hearts.

The thing happened again- Page 5 of the redone Hearts of Roese Prologue is up.
A reminder: this page is NSFW due to blood and dead characters, hence the extremely cropped thumbnail.

I made some more edits on the Character page for Hearts of Roese with a new image of the Red Queen, Alice Roese, and some description edits.


Fun Worldbuilding Fact: This is the pose the dead of Ruan are traditionally laid to rest in- so yes, these are the clothes the Red Queen wore in her casket. Same goes for the image of Roran, and any future characters that will appear in this pose.

Reblogging Queen Alice, because sometimes I feel bad that she and her family are dead.

I updated some small things in the About and Character pages for Hearts of Roese, and added a new character illustration.

This is Berwyn, the poor sap that is stuck near the Queen of Hearts for reasons that will be touched upon later on in this chapter.

Reblogging, because I like this character and I’m glad he finally has an illustration for the character page.

Alice! I miss drawing you. Why must your appearance in this chapter be so far away?

Happy Two Year Anniversary Hearts of Roese!
This week there will be 6 new/old pages to celebrate- the new version of Prologue is being finished up. The first page is complete and posted, and the rest are in the final stages of coloring- they will be posted throughout the week as they are finished. The text has not changed much, but the art is drastically different and shows so much more.

This is something I’ve been looking forward to finishing for quite awhile- I’ve been unhappy with the original Prologue since I first rushed through it two years ago. It had information important for the story, but at the time I wanted to get right to the main story. A lot development has happened for the world and the story since I initially drew them, that the pages just don’t fit anymore. Now, the Prologue will hold peeks into parts of the world that won’t be seen for quite awhile if at all.

Stay tuned all week as I post up the pages!

Anonymous said: 12. Hanging out with a friend for Berwyn!

I actually can’t go into too much detail on the friendships that Berwyn has formed within Hearts for various spoiler reasons, but he does end up spending a bit of time with Alice.

Here they are being adorable:

Anonymous said: How long has Berwyn known/worked with the Queen? Did they always have this relationship?

Berwyn and the Queen of Hearts are an interesting pair. Like the people of Hearts, Berwyn is dependent on the Queen to wind his clock-heart, which makes an interesting working relationship between the two. Part of this chapter touches on why Berwyn must stay particularly close to the Queen.

As for how long he has known the Queen, that would be almost as long as he has had his clock heart-roughly 7 years. I’m still debating on the exact length.

Berwyn is the only person who isn’t from Hearts to have a clock heart (and the last to receive one-he received his a couple of years after the people of Hearts had received theirs), and one of the few to make it through Hearts’ borders since they were closed. How he managed that and how he originally met the Queen is something I’m still debating on placing in the comic or not, but I will say that he is trapped in Hearts and close proximity with the Queen- unable to return to his home in Wyndr, or even get any messages to his family to let them know he lives.

While he would like to leave Hearts and get as far from the Queen as possible, he has gained a purpose through people he has met while there. With this purpose he started to cooperate and help the Queen in order to use his proximity to her to do specific things for those people (this will be touched on in this chapter, but more detail will be gone into later on).

TLDR: Roughly 7 years- his clock heart was forced on him by the Queen not long after they met. He didn’t have a solid opinion of her at first, then despised her once the clock happened, and now grudgingly works with her for reasons.

Here’s some sketches of Berwyn:
