May comic is rip :( Roku is on indefinite hiatus :((
he completely erased himself from twitter…thats just sad
He is just going through a very hard depression, it usually takes a year to be out of it (obviously following the medication and therapy) So don't worry. He is just healing himself
For what I heard, he is trying to turn his style better and less big exaggerate.
Beside depression, two by one
I hope he gets better, but the exaggeration is the thing I love about his style.

all the options above are a mess: imcomplete, lq or expired :/
Anyone have no. 1, 11 and 13?
Its been a lomg time, i dont see Roku using twitter anymore after the incident, anyone know what happen after? Or atleast know if he's still okay?
He was very depressed. Hopefully he's doing okay now
Anyone have full no.1 and 13?
I really hope roku comes back until the end of this year or something, there were so many talented gay artist that seem to just disappear of the internet with no reason and out of all of them roku is legit the most talented that i want nothing but success and happiness in his path, it would also be a bonus if he REALLY went to town with kinks such as prolapse like people want him too when he comes back, but either way, i really miss him and hope everything is okay.
On resume, you only want him back for arouse you? For what I heard as rumor; that was one of the reason he stop, for get tired of pleasure all of his Patreon lustful fantasy.
I heard to that he get out of internet for sharp even more his skill of drawing, reducing a lot the way of fetish and expression he used to draw.
On my point of view, I just do not care if he return or not, he has a real life to deal with on a country were being openly gay mean lose your work and family.
The other reason he quit and it is maybe the most accurate rumor that makes a lot of sense: Other artist jealous of his skill and Patreon number begging to anonymous troll him. Why? For money.
Let think about this on a realistic way, if you sell drawings and someone impressive more talent of 10-20+ years better than show up and get 90% of the people they buy stuff from you for find them on better quality for the same money, would that do not make you wish he disappear?
Without Roku, many big bara Patreons will beneficial for the left over of his follows thirst for porn, so allow them to get more money doing less quality drawing than Roku.
Even more, if you search last months porn artists, many have copy the style of Roku, from dialogue of color, facial expression and oversized body with anal destruction just like Roku draw.
It is just a though in a very rational thinking.
I kind hope I am not the only one it notice of this.
I agree with you. Let just Roku relax and being free
Wasn't hotcha straight up accusing him of stealing work with like 0 evidence?
Hotcha basically went on a psychotic rant (on Twitter or Patreon, I forget) saying that he felt like shit because he was convinced that Roku copied his comic concept (that Zark the Squeezer copied from one of Hotcha's Drake comics)…he even said weird shit like "and I EVEN JERKED OFF AND CAME SO HARD TO ROKU'S COMIC". Basically some far-fetched allegation (he was probably jealous of Roku because Hotcha used to be more popular in the past).
I'm not sure if that even contributed to Roku deciding to taking a break from drawing, pretty sure the pressure of having to churn out consistently high quality artwork month by month drained him so he's just taking a long break.
When Hotcha does tantrums? He never do that, how can you say that? Ok, enough of sarcastic thing.
Nice info too, specially, because he ends drawing Roku's OC and Roku Hotcha's OC.
Do is that be a double standard or mental ill for Hotcha? Or simple the extreme of jealousy?
probably from everyone who manages to draw a body correctly and he cries about how he can't
You win 50 pts for an accurate comment.
And that rest my case:
If are people so jealousy like Hotcha, wouldn't be other artist jealous of Roku's skill to black mail him and force him to quit?
are you suggesting that hotcha blackmailed him?
Even if that was true, the question about with what remains unchecked
I think part of it was due to him being the most popular bara artist and making a lot of money from it compared to others, of course other artist are going to get jealous, but luckily its only a few. Roku was well like in the bara community so I would hope there would be no one that disliked him yet Hotcha proves me wrong i guess.
Another thing i think was the whole turned your hobby into a job thing. He drew cause he liked it a lot! Then he turned it into a job, which good for him that's a hard thing to do. But it's always that thing where you turn it into a job then it kinda becomes a nuisance after a long time, constantly having to meet demands, him being so popular probably had his inbox/social media flooded with people being good and bad. Then of course the finished product, most artists feel proud of what they do and it shows very well through Roku's work but you're always gonna get those "well would've been better…" etc… which always hurts. I really do wish him well he made a lot of really good material and he seemed like a very kind person. If we never see him again making art that's fine. I just honestly hope he's safe and well.
But this is honestly my theory why he quit. Oh and of course if he needs to just take care of himself/family.
A reasonable folk, good.
Those may it be two of his main reason why he quit, but I still say it was jealousy and how from morning to night, many artist begging to copy him like Hotcha, TomCray, Animas and new ones too.
Talking of irony, have anyone notice how TomCray copy Hotcha? It is that copy one that copy another?
About family, I do not know, bue if you want to know something: He lives on Tokyo as a gay man and all it is NOT like manga and anime point out, the truth of being gay on Japan, especially Tokyo it is even worst than any other country (except Rusia were it is a living hell), take as example this Documental of Gaycation, it is clearly at the extreme one has to go for being "Gay" on Tokyo:https://www.dailymotion.com/video/x3vzauc
People need to finally realise: PATREON IS FOR SUPPORT! NOT SELLING! WHY DO YOU THINK IT EVEN HAS THE HIDING OF PROFIT OPTION EVEN?!?
Seriously, i don't have much of a right to say that because i'm a freeloader, but fucking hell the amount of artist doing so much fucking bullshit and backbends just to please patreon fags is fucking ridiculous, i get that selling your art attracts more people, but realistically if you can't stand the stress of having to churn(?) content on a monthly basis -because roku said he already had a fulltime job doing character design or something like that, so fucking props on him for being a boss like that, but goddamn, there's a reason "don't bring work to home" is a saying- then just post whatever you can come up with, the point of patreon is you get support to keep doing what YOU like, not what other people want you to. There's a reason why the most chilled and healthy artist are out here doing the "support me if you want, everything is public on the next month" is the least stressful route and is much more valuable on the long run
does anyone happen to have the pack with iskander fucking in public with english text?
