As many of you may be aware, the DGM fandom recently found Hoshino's instagram account and quite exceptionally freaked right the fuck out. The instagram includes unseen personal works from Hoshino as well as some very promising WIPs for the new chapter. After two years of little to no word on the series, I think I can confidently say that most DGM fans are going through one of the most intense relapses of their lives (I know I am).
Here is the instagram in case you are unaware: www.enjoygram.com/hoshino1000

As much as the good news that Hoshino is working on DGM again is crazy exciting, we have to be patient and remember that there is still a long road ahead for the release of a new chapter. From what I've been told and have researched (though rumors can be convincing so this may not be true), Shonen Jump owns half the rights to D.Gray-Man and Hoshino has been in a legal battle to win back all of the rights. From what I've heard she's been taking on other projects (such as Valvrave) to save up enough money to buy it back and continue it. I'm not sure what the progress has been, but it very likely might still be a while before the chapter is released.
Mostly importantly though is that Hoshino is ok! She seems to be doing well and at least the work she's doing means she hasn't given up on it yet and that really gives me some new hope that the series will continue. It's also been a wonderful opportunity to relay to the author how much we appreciate her and all the hard work she's done, so let's continue to support her!

So on he other hand....

The six months of work I put into this End of DGM project may all be for naught and so now I'm not sure whether to continue it or leave it be and try to find something else to work on... I was almost done with the first chapter so i suppose I could upload it and then leave it up to you guys? My biggest fear is stepping in where I may not be wanted or insulting anyone who would rather I not touch on the series. So I have decided to take a vote!
Let me know either through this journal, notes, pm, tumblr how you think I should handle this. Since it may be a long time still until the continuation would you guys like something to just hold you off until the meantime? Or would you rather I not mess with a good thing and leave it be? If I do continue I would change the name from "End of DGM" to "DGM ALT", since it would be treated as an alternate universe and ending and not a continuation of the actual series.

Thank you guys very much for the support and patience, I very much appreciate it :>
Hopefully D.gray-Man will be back in action soon!

Hello! Yes, friends I am alive! Somehow...
I wanted to give a huge thank you to everybody who helped me out by buying commissions, I was able to get the supplies I needed and have been working very hard on the End of DGM Project when I have the time! I would like to have a twenty to thirty page chapter complete for 219 by the end of this year, so I have been sketching, inking and toning every chance I get (usually on my work breaks).
Lately I have been VERY busy with my two jobs, so I do apologize to those of you who asked for a commission within the last month or so. The only day I don't work is Sunday (and even then I am usually taking care of all the shit I can't take care of when I'm working), but slowly and surely I have been busting out work on the new project. I also recently got slapped with a $2000 hospital bill, and as a two-part-timing 19-year-old dealing with that has been quite exhausting and time consuming.

I would like to address what a lot of people have been asking me about regarding Zombies, and the news may not bode well... I put Zombies on indefinite Hiatus due to the fact that the script and last couple pages I drew for it (a few never uploaded) were destroyed by nasty rain water. I also have given the End of DGM Project all my time and energy because I feel like it is the more important piece to be working on, for both myself and the DGM fandom. There are lots of Zombie stories out there, but D.Gray-Man has been my favorite story for a very long time and since we as a fandom have received no news or word about a return of the series for about two years now, I owe it to myself and to my friends who are into this with me to see an ending to it.
I do apologize if this news upsets a lot of people, I liked Zombies a lot as well but going back and rewriting the entire script again along with redrawing six+ pages that I have already drawn is a setback I don't have time for right now. The script for End of DGM is being kept in a very safe place along with all the pages and materials.

Some info on End of DGM, What to expect:

My style has become a bit more western lately with a lot of anime influence, so as such the direction will be written as a western comic (From left to right instead of traditional manga which is right to left). I plan to address all the plot-lines that have been introduced thus far and try to wrap them up in an interesting and fun way (while also working around all the plot-holes -_-). The comic will include no OCs unless another character is absolutely needed for story structure, I figure we all like the characters we already have and there are quite a few of them to work with.

Thank you guys for your patience, you're all awesome and I appreciate every last bit of support and kindness. Stay toasty DGM fandom!

Just this morning I finally made enough cash to purchase the markers I required to start the End of DGM project!
All I need is enough funds to buy the bleed proof paper and I can start! Script is ready to go, I have some
test panels, If only TWO more color copic pictures are sold I will have everything I need!
Please help, boost, purchase whatever you can do if you can to help, I really need new supplies and would
love more than anything to do this project (especially since I'm about to start working nine hours a day six days a week
and would really like to have a hobby in my free time...)

Example of Commissions done so far:

Anything helps! Please and thank you very much!

If you haven't noticed from my gallery, I really REALLY like D.Gray-Man, and it's pretty much just my favorite thing of all time... It's been that way for a few years now, and I don't see things changing any time in the near future :)
99% of my art is all traditional, because for some ungodly reason I can't figure out tablet, and markers are just nice on the hand.
Anyone can feel free to come and talk to me, start a conversation, send me a note, anything you desire, really :)
I love talking to fellow D.Gray-Peeps, and most of you are pretty bangin'.
