Ink Forge

BattleCry would like to introduce you to a special area called Ink Forge, where artists can showcase their work and talents for the public to buy and arrange commisions, and for gamers to discuss games they are developing with potential illustrators.

As part of the Ink Forge area for 2014 we will be hosting the February Drawfest Meet Up on Sunday the 16th of Feb beginning at 12 noon and will run for most of the afternoon! This is a open gathering of artists. Here is a description of what happens at the Drawfest.

Bring a friend, bring your art, comic, craft, writing... what ever creative tools you have, bring them along and hangout with other like minded Aucklanders, and swap war stories or what not!
