EXALTED : Ki Punch by Inkthinker EXALTED : Ki Punch by Inkthinker
Third in the series of illustrations drawn as a subcontract for White Wolf's Scroll of the Monk gamebook for their long-running RPG series Exalted.

This one's a little different from the others, in that I did the least amount of work on it, for various reasons. I don't usually leave something this unfinished before handing it off, but there was reasons.

As with the others in this set, the top two frames are my work, the final frame shows the image as it appears in print after being sweetened by the tone artist.

The man responsible in this case is fan-favorite: Shaun Healey. Ahhh, yes, I knew him before he became a rockstar.


The description for the drawing called for the character to resemble Bruce Lee, and I aims to please... Shaun was given wide latitude in the background and some specific instructions to change up the lines, which he did quite nicely. If you ain't seen his work, check him out.

More to come, I expect.


There's a possiblity that this particular illustration didn't appear in the book after all... I haven't seen a copy to check against yet, but when I find out for sure then I'll mention it.

Not gonna take it down or nothin'... still a good drawing.

Yeah, it didn't get into the book. They seem to have put Mel's there in it's place on page 83. They are quite similar. Either way, your work is definitely a good addition to any book. Hopefully they'll have more of your work in books for the future, and hope you actually enjoy working on Exalted. Keep up the great job.

That's the plan, anyhow. Soon as I get my home studio resituated post-move, I intend to send stuff out to them and others. I really enjoy the Exalted universe, so I definitely hope that I get more of those.

The final outcome is simply amazing, funny though how he closes his mouth. Kinda reminds me of Bruce Lee.

Cool, he totally should... the direction for the piece specified that the character resemble Bruce.
