What is Aether Eternius?


Aether Eternius is a long form, High-Fantasy webcomic about the life of creatures we often see as monsters. Elementals or as they prefer to call themselves; Primordials. Creatures of magic and spirit that live in the chaotic and ever shifting landscape of the Elemental Planes. But all is not well in the Planes, and a trio of friends is starting to learn that the realm is teetering on the edge of internal collapse. But to fix the problem, they're finding that they'll have to break it apart further first.

An out of control eldritch monster, feuding Lords, incursion from the Outside Realms, the stagnation of all magic in their home, and the broken legacy of the element of Null.. just to name a few problems.


Who is behind all of this?

That's me! Heya everyone, my name is Shannon Merrill. I'm both the artist and author behind Aether Eternius. I'm a self taught artist who draws for a good portion of the day, and have always had quite the wild imagination. Thankfully, I have the skills to put what goes on in my head onto a physical medium. I have grand plans for AE, and a huge storyline to boot that will even allow fans to change it's course in the future with their input!

Why did you make Aether Eternius?

Aether Eternius was spawned by the creation of a single character, Makumbo Mubarak. They were originally used in small groups for roleplay or art based tournaments, but over the course of several years their story evolved into an entire world as with its plights.

AE itself came about after seeing many mediums paint Elementals as mindless monsters that are either controlled by someone, or killed without reason other than 'They are bad and were created to do bad things.' So.. I've decided to deviate from that, and paint a story from their point of view. Both their struggles, their politics, and also having to deal with the eons of damage wrought by those on the outside.

It's gonna be one wild ride, and I hope you join me in this adventure.

Aether Eternius will always be available to read online for free, no matter what happens. But its existence is all thanks to you guys, my loyal readers. Your feedback, comments and your dedication is what makes this all worthwhile.

Why support Aether Eternius?

Not only would supporters allow me to work on the comic itself, full time, but they'll also receive many perks. Donations will go toward keeping my equipment intact and functional so I can keep making page updates on a timely and scheduled basis. As with allowing me to continue on in my current living conditions, and possibly, over time, being able to go to conventions to meet with all of you!

Donators will be privvy to Patreon only Streams, concept art work, art of not yet revealed characters, character biographies and secrets, character references, seeing WIPs of future pages and also be alerted to contests and story polls before anyone else! In the future I plan to make badges, keychains, and other possible physical goods for Aether Eternius Patreons and fans. And alot so far is only for the minimal donation of 1$ USD! If you choose to donate more, then even more things can be done!

Such as seeing pages of Chapter 1-2's redux before anyone else, free monthly sketch commissions, and even making your own character to be in the comic!

Pledges will be monthly, and as we know, AE updates weekly. And I'm hoping to push that up to twice a week as well! So that's a pretty sweet deal!
