Thief of Hearts

This is a revised and renewed version of my old comic, "Thief of Hearts". -------------------------------------------- Erik Coeur is a heart thief; an individual cursed by Death himself with a rotting heart. His only solution is to gather select hearts from victims in order to fill his prescription for a devilish apothecary, and Charlotte, an unfortunate victim of circumstance, is on his list! Her only salvation is to make a deal with Erik, but could his simple exchange for sanctuary lead to much more than she bargained for? ---------------------------------------------------- "Thief of Hearts", which was once written under my pen name "Surrealmasque", has undergone a massive rewrite. I will warn you that I cannot guarantee that there won't be copious amounts of the following: gore, crude humor, mature situations, innuendo, and alcohol usage. Thank you for reading!


Progress Report

Hello everyone! So after a bit of an unfortunate hiatus (*kicks wacom across the room*) I am hoping to get back into releasing new content soon.

Also, after that awesome sale on Manga Studio 5 (it was $15~! Woot!), I now have ANOTHER new program to experiment with and make quality pages for TOH.

This hiatus wasn’t ill spent, though, because it gave me ample time to work out my changes to the old story and decide how I want the following chapters to flow. And believe me, there are quite a bit of changes. That being said, I should be generating new pages for Chapter 1 soon. Thank you all for your patience and I’m excited to continue!

New Layout and TOH Tumblr

posted by Sachelarot on October 5th, 2015, 8:09 am

So as you've noticed, I've tweaked my layout a bit. I figured this would look a lot more interesting than the former... fits the tone a little better I think.

That being said, I also added a button leading to my "Thief of Hearts" tumblr page. This location will contain my gallery, concepts, playlists, random junk... whatever, pertaining to this comic. If you're at all interested in that, feel free to click on it and give it a look. So far I've posted a fair amount of redesigns and doodles. Also, if you want to ask anything about the comic, you can easily reach me there through their message system.

Extras will still contain fanart and the like, and character bios (when I get around to writing the revised versions).

Anyways! Thank you all for reading and I hope you're enjoying it so far!


Thief of Hearts: With New Tools Comes Resurrection

With new technology comes new inspiration! Hello everyone, and welcome to the webcomic that refuses to fade away.

After being introduced to the wonders that is Paint Tool Sai, I discovered just how much more incredibly satisfying it is to work on comic pages again. Nice, crisp and clean lines~! I love it!

Well, I decided that I'd muster up the courage and once again try my hand at this, redoing the PROLOGUE this time, equipped with the awesome resources and programs I have now.

To any returning readers out there, thank you for returning and welcome back! To any new readers, welcome to Thief of Hearts~!


Thief of Hearts: Back From the Dead

posted by Sachelarot on February 14th, 2013, 6:22 pm

Hello, and welcome to the new and improved "Thief of Hearts" comic! So here is the story:

Once upon a time, a high schooler wrote a comic about a man on the run from Death. His sole salvation was the harvesting of hearts from 12 key victims to create a powerful prescription that can keep his rotting heart alive and beating in his chest. However, when he tried to steal the heart of Charlotte Dulce, he ended up being expelled about 12 yards back into a garbage can.

It has been quite a while since I last updated this comic; I was writing under the flourish "Surrealmasque" at the time, and since then, I have evolved into Sachelarot, and I have to say, I missed working on this story. I loved the characters and the unique ideas that I had brewing in my head! However, life gets busy and changes interests, and for a while, I let "TOH" sit on the back-burner, and every time I tried to pick it back up, something would occur to knock me off track. WELL, NO MORE!

Despite the fact that my Surrealmasque account (both on yahoo mail and here, I'm afraid), decided to lock me out from touching the original webcomic site due to somehow not recognizing all of my passcodes, I believe that a fresh start is probably fitting anyway. To any of you who were my readers before, I am so sorry that I disappeared for so long, and that I decided to start this over. Believe me, it is for the best. I've improved a lot, and though it will take some time to get back to where we were before, I know that this will be a major benefit for the story, and if you are at all interested in following this reboot, thank you so much, and welcome back.

I was never satisfied with the original (and downright horribly drawn) opening chapter for the first edition. It was too long, and god, I was awful at backgrounds! But now after a lot of practice, I am confident that I can deliver the story the way it should have been delivered originally. I altered some character designs, changed a lot of the first chapter, made some minor changes, ect ect... but I am very excited to finally get to remake one of my favorite creations.

I will be posting up the first chapter of the reboot soon!

Thank you all for reading "Thief of Hearts". Enjoy~!!!
