Can you get the artificial horizon back? No. With your last remaining engine gone so went the generator supplying electrical power to keep the instruments gyros energised.

In this case you should have gone to limited panel; use your Airspeed Indicator, Vertical Speed Indicator, Compass and Turn and Slip indicators, scanning each for a second in swift and regular pattern to try and inform you what the a/c is doing.

It's called flying limited panel and is very hard. It will take practise.

I didn't even think about the fact I lost the other engine so all power was gone.

But to be frank I was in alot of trouble even before the engine went out.

 

I have heard about limited panel flying before but its over my head/too advanced

I just watched a video about the radial scan and i think that will help alot, instead of relying  on just one instrument.
