Can't remember how many evenings I spent drawing this. It seems I will always see pikes and blue uniforms in my future nightmares. How many men can you draw per time? Three? Five? Now imagine that you draw these three or five men, but there's still two companies to draw. Next time you draw next three men, but the number of companies do not reduce. Despite the difficulties, it was funny to draw this.

I'll do my best.

By the way, I've drawn several Northern War related pictures for this book:

As a history nerd, Charles XII and the Carolean forces are some of the most fascinating I've studied. Also, Sabaton is one of my favorite bands, so kudos on two fronts!

Very impressive composition and technique, I like how clearly the background figures are individualised.
