You know, I'm not really into that sort of thing, but I find the story fantastic. I literally can't stop reading it. The raw emotions, the tension... Very well done.

Dude congrats on the interview!! I'm so excited to see your amazing work get the publicity it deserves =3
(well, actually, the publicity it deserves would be being featured on Oprah or something, but give it time n.n)
JulioRosario Featured By Owner Aug 26, 2013
Just finished reading the article and interview, very nice. I hope this will bring even more people to know this fantastic work. I found out about Sunstone way before, and I enjoyed it very much. Then I started reading Witchblade and something wasn't quite right..."I know these drawings... nah, can't be!" Now I know it can... Keep up the good work and I hope that any new readers will enjoy what you offer us the way I do. Thanks a bunch for all that is to come.

Don't you love surprises!?


bloodmaker Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2013

Um I want to begin this by saying I'm guy, that's not foreign to the world of fetishists and I found your story pretty interesting though I've only read about 5 pages so far.


I'm just leaving a suggestion here; I don't know if you two ever planned on turning this into a physical comic but (assuming that since you're both in the comic world you are interested in anime/manga and have knowledge of the show naruto) I've always my own version of IchaIcha to read.


So if you'll ever decided to put this through print I would appreciate it if there was a travel-sized picture-novel version. What I mean by that is it would be a novel but it would also have illustrations (page long?) of important or climatic scenes. (climatic in a literary sense ;))


Since it was never actually shown what was in the Icha Icha books, everyone has their own ideas but the most popular idea in my opinion is that it's romantic erotica with a good story.  So uh, yeah that would be awesome.Happy cry (Tears of joy)

Very cool to see the feature on you and the comic... Still amazing to see how big this has gotten! All well deserved too!

Sunstone is like the US version of Shameless - 1st season/chapter we got lots of boobs and sex and funny stuff all around -2nd and 3rd - so much character development

dont get me wrong - i like the story (never said love before so not gonna start now) and i will keep on reading till the last panel .. w8ing for red wedding etc

just boobs .. GIEF ME BEWBS

It's awesome to see ya got featured.  I found out about you through Collar6 a bit back and started reading.  Love the story line and all the expressions on your characters face.  The style and care show and really brings it all home for the reader.
EpicRick Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2013
I've only started reading sunstone since last night have not stopped. Your work is amazing i love your style, your story, everyone one of the charecters it is truly awesome i know this would properly not interest you, but i would love to see it as an animated series. 
EcEu Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2013
you had drawing technique videos all this time!? (then again I haven't really browsed the net in over 8 months)
Nighthawke Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2013
Things got busy for you. Sunstone got you a seriously massive fan base now, perhaps on par with Max Black Rabbit and his ZigZag.

Maybe not as perverted, or similar likes.

Who wants to see ZigZag tied up in one of Shiniez's outfits??

Even though I am in a complete different domain – CGI with a ... well ... really strange »fetish« if I may say so – I have to say: Thank you so much for the tutorial videos. You can not believe how valuable those are even though I don't draw. But laying out a comic page, splitting a page into panels, choosing which panel sizes, what to show, POV angles, lighting and so on and so on ... that's SOOOO great! So again: Thank you very much for making those videos and of course for posting a link here (which I may have already found if I was to browse through your journal). Wish you all the best for your comic and all the best in general!

This seems like as good a place to put this comment as any.

Shiniez, this comic literally changed my life.   I won't go into to detail, because you don't care, but Sunstone is what knocked me out of blissful, perpetual fantasy into persuing reality.  It's what inspired me to actually get off my ass and do something.  So, thank you, I suppose.

You're and incredable author and artist.  I'll be buying the books when the go to print.  You're a good person and you should feel good about yourself.
TheMeanCanadian Featured By Owner Aug 25, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
^ What he said

Anyways I am attaching my message to that other guys message to get you more likely to read both of our comments and feel good about yourself. I encourage others who feel as I do to do the same.

But yeah, (Holy crap I have been reading your name wrong this entire time I thought it was Shinez) I was going through  rough patch (Extremely depressed and at a low point in that depression) and had read a couple of your strips and thought just maybe you were someone who understood what to do when in my situation. So I messaged you, and your reply, however breif, (Something along the lines of "Your friend is full of shit, check out this website, feel better about yourself") eventually had a ripple effect that led me back into the realm of the (I wouldn't use sane as the right word, I rather enjoy not identifying as sane) so um... stable. You are not just making an erotic romantic comedy, you are changing, and dare I say it for you will probably never feel like you deserve the credit, saving the lives of many people who are lost in their own mind (Yes I am talking about me). People like me who are stuck feeling like they don't belong, who cannot find a path and need someone to show it to them, that's the people your erotic romantic comedy has the most profound effect on.

Except I will still never be satisfied with the typos. Nope. Never. Well, maybe. Okay fine, be that way, no spell check until official release. BAH!

Continuing the praisechain.

Yeah, you two are really good and definately have become an influence to my the way I develop character dynamics in my own storytelling. What I didn't learn from Eisner and Leone, I learnt from you and I hope someday I can produce a comic you'll like as much as I like Sunstone.

Keep it up :ahoy:

What's not to love about Sunstone?  Even if the sexuality makes a person uncomfortable, the characters are more realistic and well-rounded than you'll likely find anywhere in TV, film or mainstream comics, plus they're really just really likable people.  Oh, yeah, and amazing artwork.  

intoaon Featured By Owner Aug 24, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Congratulations on the feature.
I just expect people could learn from your work not to be prejudicial against BDSM practicioners. As you have stated many times, they are each a complex person defined not only for their sexual practices or preferences.
And you show it to all us through a beautifully told love story (or is it three interconnected love stories by now?)

Congratulations on the feature! I read this journal entry before seeing the feature so I was slightly confused and had to go back and find it for myself haha Still, it was only a matter of time until the entire community was alerted about this magnificent work of art & story telling. Truth be told, when I first found Sunstone I found it through a picture of Ally and Lisa in clothing sitting back to back. I had no idea the comic would be anything, for the lack of a better word, sexual. So. much. sex. haha But I gave it a shot. At first, I tried hiding it from my friend who I would periodically show my favorites on deviantart, but then I was like 'what the hell?'. I showed her the comic, and now she's a reader too! Needless to say, after keeping up with the story, it is not all just about sex. This strip ventures and explores love, sex, relationships (both romantically and friendly) & everything in between. It deals with a subject that is uncanny and uncomfortable for some, and yet, it seems so real. I commend you for all of your hard work, and I assure you that I am an avid reader! Congrats again! & Thank you for helping me explore and learn more about the bdsm world.

Hello Shiniez, first congratulations to you and your wife on the interview! Secondly I wanted to say thank you for making such an amazing comic that not only is wonderful in all it's aspects but also tells a story about the struggle of love, especially when your a woman in love with a woman. My girlfriend and I love it and cannot wait for updates. 

You and Sigeel are too damned awesome for words.

Chuckles..  Congratulations on being noticed.  Some of us knew it was just a matter of time.  The art work is crisp, storyline well developed and you (both) have a wonderful sense of humor.   Importantly, stay modest and true to yourselves.

Either way, well done!
