I have recently launched a self-published, weekly strip satirizing one of Dungeons & Dragons most beloved evil fighters, Warduke. Tune in to social media every Moreduke Monday for the latest installment (Instagram: @moreduke and on Facebook). I will also be posting here on fullblownink.com. Below are the first 6 strips, the last being the most current. Head over to the Moreduke page of this site for the most current strip. Moreduke™ is trademarked, copywritten and owned by Eric Smith and may not be used or reproduced without permission. If you would like to review or feature this comic strip, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

I have always found vintage manga to be very inspiring, so I did this mostly as an exercise in technique, as it is inspired by a Giant Robo illustration from Mitsuteru Yokoyama. This was done with Procreate on an iPad.

There is a “thing” called #Wardukewednesday on social media where people post pics of a fantasy character named Warduke. I created my own satirical version called “MoreDuke”, and most recently, “Morduke” and post on Mondays, or #Mordukemonday. A resin figure is in the works, and I hope to compile my Morduke art into a small ‘zine to accompany the release of the figure…stay tuned and follow the hashtag(s) on social media.

I wasn’t happy with day 3, so I will not be posting it here (you can see it on my IG account @fullblownink), so here is day 4…Jun from Gatchaman
Dark Night of the Scarecrow
Every year I want to commit to do a drawing a day for the full month of October, but my schedule hasn’t permitted it so far. I will try again this year. So, here is yesterday’s drawing for Inktober — none other than Warduke. Done with Procreate.
