Printer, Here We Come

Posted by TenNapel (Creator)

Happy new year, Kickstarters!

We're right on track with Volume 2. Ben is putting the finishing touches on the book as I write this. Later today he will be compiling the entire 304 page document for the printer!

And just to whet your appetite here is some of the material included in the book:

• Essays I've written on beauty in art, how to write great stories and even an illustrated inking tutorial.

• 50 pages of ink and wash commissions.

• Never-before-published storyboard pitches.

• And, of course, much more.

Again allow me to thank you for being a backer. I don't take your trust or your cash lightly. Ben and I want this book to not just meet the quality of Volume 1 but even surpass it.

More later.

      @Jose the plan is to release the commentary tracks at the same time as the books. Knowing how Doug talks, the commentaries are going to add a TON of value to the books!

      How are the commentary tracks coming along, will they be released once the book starts shipping out to backers?

      Happy new year to everyone!! Good to get some news about the book. I still amazed for what Vol.1 became and thinking that Vol.2 will be better blown my mind!

      From the sounds of things, Vol2 is coming along faster and more smoothly than Vol1. Vol2 and Armikrog both launch in 2014...this is going to be a great year! Happy New Year one and all!

      Josh, no surveys have been sent out yet. We'll be sure to post one of these updates when the surveys are being sent out just in case some surveys end up in peoples spam folders.
