ABOUT THE ARTIST:
Yes, so this is the artist. Blue (criminal alias: Andrea Martin) welcomes you to her supernatural online comic + White Ash +. Blue lives, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It a "big city with small town feel" as them Pittsburghianer-ites say, and Blue enjoys it, too. Specifically, she inhabits a suburban, and quite snobby, town called Mount Lebanon. At the local edjumacative highschool, she is entering her first year of college at the University of Pittsburgh with interests in Mechanical Engineering.
At home, Blue enjoys countless, and sometimes pointless, hours at the computer editing art work for her comic and deviantART gallery. Also, she chats with local 'otaku' and werewolf enthusiasts (for which she spends much of chem class theorizing about). She loves fantasy and supernatural fiction of all types along with a particular devotion to pistachio milkshakes. Her comic is finally progressing and Blue dearly hopes to someday finish it all the way to the 'not so happily ever after'.
ABOUT THE COMIC:
White Ash is a supernatural based comic with a back alley feel with its drawing style, toning, and character interactions. The art style can be seen evolving from page to page from basic anime done with colored pencils to a more realistic style done in black, greys, and white.
Although not much has been revealed about the characters (as
in the strange man that is holding a young, albino girl captive) the
plot is currently set on the past of the girl. The author has the
complete plot line already written out for the entire comic, which if
continued into completion, shall stretch beyond 100 chapters.
White Ash tells of three people who all trail the paths of the supernatural world that has been, denied by the humans, intergrated into the modern world. Though technology had fallen behind our own world’s, the parallels of international conflict still reigns. It begins in the outlying forests of St. Ashen in the spring of 521 ABR. The years, measured Godlessly, are counted from years After the Blood Raid massacre that the large island of Jawa, where St. Ashen lies, had to endure to gain independence from the mainland.
A shy girl enters and is overwhelmed by a large man, however, not before she nearly kills him. She never even touched him. Though she escapes, the chase ends quickly with her unconscious. After awaking in a strange make-shift cage as an apparent hostage, she recounts her paranormal life—raised in an isolated village where the residents are referred to as ‘Snow People’ for their ivory hair—as she is an empath. Her training to sharpen her hold over others emotions led to an orphanage as her entire bloodline died one by one. The girl had incredible potential, she could heal and even cause others deep pain with her power, yet she was left an empty shell. A man found her on the street and offered her a new home. Kira, as told him, had a new life.
Onikatsu treated her like a doll. His group of all-male cohorts ran a piracy business that left Kira alone often in a dingy basement. However, he love for her new master, Onikatsu, would never leave her sight. He loved her as a prodigy and bestowed a poisonous mark upon her belly one night, well more of a bite really, that bonded them further. The tattoo allowed increased her skill to cause pain to others—his gift to her.
Nevertheless, Onikatsu found a new child, Tajkeda, and threw Kira aside to focus on him. Moving north to find more trade, he sent Kira out as infantry against bounty hunters that had heard of Onikatsu’s arrival in the region. Kira sets out, seething with bitter jealousy, and finds a man approaching their new campsite. Her shy girl routine does not work … and ends up half conscious with a black eye in some guy’s apartment.
