How We Crafted
The Inking Process for Talli
Introducing Sourya And Talli
"Talli is a very old project. I started writing it in 2012/13, and I actually only signed a contract in late 2016."
Tools Of The Trade
From Pencil Sketch To Inked Page

Challenges And How To Overcome Them
“...I am sure that all the artists would just say you have to practice. You need to draw them as much as you can just to understand how they are built, their volumes and etc. But when you sign a project, sometimes you just don't have time to - you just don't have time left to practice and fill sketchbooks with horses..."
