At the Fish Gates.


Or are they squids?


An invading rock Bogold warrior trapped in paper bindings.

The last time we joined O'Sirus, he was desperate to turn around the legendary Draft Horse and follow the spooky voice's call to the Knobbly Crook. Now we finally join him on the shores of the Crook and O'Sirus is going to have to convince the locals that he's worthy of visiting the upper city, where the spooky face attached to the spooky voice lives. Along the way, he will find out more about his people and earn himself a name, but there will be much trouble-making along the way. 

The first chapter was around 2 hours long and the second should be about the same (perhaps a little longer). It will also be 100% free. So far, 2 rooms are complete and concepts for the next 3 are on paper. My goal is to have Chapter II out by the end of the year, but that's very ambitious since this is mostly a 1-man project and I draw slowly. Stay tuned!

Here's the slide room. Coogal clones are placeholders for three other Knobbcrookians I have yet to draw, just to get an idea of layout.

Freaking beautiful. How do you come up with these patterns and colors?

Keep up the great work. I can't wait to see what you do next.

I don't really plan anything. I just draw chaos, which works really well when your game is about chaos :)

Thanks! I'm not going to stop you, but I'd advise against using one of the great totems as wallpaper. Who knows what kind of cutlery curse that might bring.

A serious and honest question: how many years does it take to draw one of your amazing backgrounds?

It takes about 3 weeks on average. The big ones tend to go just over a month. I reeeeally need to speed up. I said end of year for Chapter II but the math isn't quite working out so far... (laugh)
