Here's a speeded up video of the inking of Plok, episode #83.

I actually streamed the inking live on Periscope, and the whole thing took about 45 minutes. I figured that was a bit too long and boring to watch on YouTube though, so I sped it up 8x, and now it looks like I'm a master draughtsman!

Really enjoyed this! As an aspiring comic artist it's great to be able to watch a much more experienced artist's inking technique.

Glad you liked it! I think I consider myself more aspiring than experienced, but I've definitely benefited myself from watching other artists and seeing their technique. I wish I was that fast in real life.



Hello Gentleman,

Took a while to track you down, Recently my Grandfather passed away, and He and I were very close , he bought me many of my console games when I was a boy, spent many weekends with me playing some of my favourite games and waited outside the toy store with me, waiting for it to open, on the release date of what was to become our favourite game, Having already spent many many hours pounding the dirt and tiled floors of Kâstleröck trying to find all the pieces of the eluding staff of demons, the day Equinox came out was was an overwhelming day for the both of us, I don't think we turned it off for hours, I still remember being devastated when I finally finished it, and my brother walked in, he said...pfft this is easy and then pressed L, L, R, R, L, L, L, R, R, R, L, L, R, R, L, R at the menu and it turned green, I didnt know what he was doing, ...litle shit was cheating.. anyways, sorry to ramble... guys thanks for the memories, just thought you should know my grandad was a veteran and suffered from survivors guilt till the day he died, but I remember him being happy, playing your 2 solstice creations, so thanks.. any chance of another sequel, maybe a kickstarter campaign to get fans to chip in??!!!, I would que up for that, just the music is enough to get me excited lol , do you still speak with Royji or Mike?

Also interestingly enough have you seen this hehe.. brilliant


SEQUEL SEQUEL SEQUEL ... here's hoping

Thanks guys,




also massive fan of ironsword, wizards and warriors 3, although have to say, not being able to save , was killer, was about to kill the king at the end of 3 had like 2 life bars left on him and he killed me on my last life... grr, never did get to see the ending.
