A loud noise made me jump.

I jumped out of my bed, hoping to find the thing that had made such a loud noise. The hard wooden floor of my house felt uncomfortable underneath my feet. I put on my boots and got out my torch, then walked out of the door. It was still dark outside, so I decided to go fetch my sword. The blade glowed by the torchlight as I walked through the dark forest, the torch, warm in my hand.

I started to think about what had interrupted my sleep. I started to hope it was a goblin, which seemed weak due to the species of Demons & Dragons. It seemed as if it were midnight when I found my first clue. A pair of torn, leather shorts. It was the type a zombie would have worn, but it looked like it had been burned in a fire, and due to the rotten flesh in the grass, it was obvious the zombie was dead. Later on, the zombie's  scorched skull was found.

As I realised this was more than a mere goblin, I heard a rustling sound in some bushes nearby. As I stepped closer towards the bushes, I unsheathed my sword, just in case. Suddenly a dark figure jumped out of the bush towards me and as I felt his warm but bony hands punch me in the face, everything faded to black...

A louder noise made me jump.

I found myself in a cage and I realised that my sword was nowhere to be seen. I tried to use the only magic spell I knew off by heart. The spell enchanted the bars of the cage and made them crumble to dust.

As I walked over to the table with my sword on it, I felt someone knock into my back. I fell to the floor and I turned to find a demon pinning me to the floor. His head was skull that was set alight with bright blue flames and he carried a longsword with a poisonous edge. I managed to crawl away. I jumped up, grabbed my sword and raced forwards to attack. His sword slapped me around the face and I flung towards the wall. I felt the poison effect flood through my veins as I spotted a shelf of health potions. I rolled forwards, jumped up and sliced his shoulder as I jumped over the demon. The health potion regained my strength and I flung the demon into the wall. He dissolved into the air and I felt victorious. The battle had been won.

I returned to my house to finish my sleep. I was exhausted! I fell into a deep sleep that seemed like it lasted forever...but then...

A loud noise made me jump.

End.

I want to change my approach to updating Energize. I normally work on a page and then when it's done, put it online. However I never feel like I get a good flow going and often spend a lot of time sitting in front of a blank screen thinking about how to start.

Where I am working on Heart of Stone pencils only, I can work my more fluidly and so now I am going to apply this to Energize and update in batches.

This is why it has gone quiet. I am going to complete all of Energize Unleashed Act I before uploading the pages daily, during which time I will work on Act II and so on...

Shouldn't be a huge wait but the end result will be better.

Thanks.

Heart Of Stone - Cover Teaser by Nepath
Heart Of Stone - Cover Teaser
A while ago I started to work on a new graphic novel project called Heart of Stone. Then I started updating Energize again with Energize Unleashed but I am still working on Heart of Stone in the background.
Im not going to be releasing this online as and when it's done, but instead it will be made available in full digitally at some point. Not settled on solid plans yet on exactly how it will be made available but it won't be on The Duck.

I thought I would post a teaser of the front cover, obviously this is not THE cover as i have left only a small section of the finished version, but you get a feel for it.

Hello.
I have been reading a lot of webcomics on drunkduck before and I was interested in reading Energize from seeing your character on CrossoverKill and Daisen before the thwduckwecomics site went down. I heard from people that it may be down for good so just in case is there a way to read your comic?
Thank You.

if im honest, i don't have much involvement in the development of the story but i don't think they have a set page count. They know exactly what they intend to do in any given chapter but it takes as long as it takes. I don't believe there are many more pages to run in this current chapter though.

So this is where the one who started the whole HU business in the first place is hiding at DA.

Sebastian Sandberg here, Joachim Lipsky AKA :iconabt-nihil: might have mentioned me. A pleasure to make your acquaintance. Now, if you don't mind, I'll keep a close eye on you. :+devwatch:

Oh, and I hope I did Titan justice in the HA prologue. Not easy too cram a few years worth of web-comics into 16 pages of foreshadowing.
