Evil queen's holiday Ep.124. the end

EQH Ep.124

The author of this webtoon goes by an alias of Rusielin.

While Evil queen's holiday was his first official work, he has done numerous other stuff while learning from EQH. If you've been following this webtoon, you would have noticed a steady improvement. Simply compare the first episode and the last.

The difference is very clear.

Having said that, nobody draws a webtoon for years without a motive/a goal. And Rusielin had a goal. His goal was apparently to earn a living via drawing webtoons. (The dream for most of comic artists which probably only 0.1% reach.)

And in order to get a job as a webtoon artist, he wanted some sort of portfolio. And that is where Evil Queen's holiday comes in. It appeared that his first planned step was getting approved as an official webtoon artist for PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Winter Games.

His intentions/plans can be seen @ this gallery site.

His uploads show clear intention in going commercial. He has drawn clip arts as well as various commercial short webtoons for government sites - and winter Olympic - although is Olympic-related works have been pulled off at this point. It used to dominate his gallery however.

Now, what does all this have to do with the ending of Evil queen's holiday?

Well, it appears he has been trying to get a career as a webtoon artist for some years now and EQH as his portfolio is good enough. I believe he felt he need not to work on it any further than he has and called it quits. It has been around 2 years since he put an ending to it and, to this day, he hasn't gotten a job as a webtoon artist.

Which is bad news for the continuation of the webtoon, probably. If he had gotten a job, he may have continued the webtoon but he hasn't got what he wanted. Why work on it when there is no fruit of labor?

He still continues to upload commercial type webtoons even now though. He may or may not continue it. Quite frankly, I don't care.
