Fiiinally. I promised you. And here it is.

The cover for the chapter that has just concluded, Chapter 3!

Congrats to everyone who guessed, the Hero to appear on the cover was indeed Orca!

This one took me a whole afternoon, but I was SO satisfied when I completed it^^
I imagined summing up the events of Chapter 3 in this picture. Orca surrounded by some Demons with the Destiny Sword in the background and a shadowy figure sneaking for it :D I'm pretty sure you know who that figure is! ;D

Anyway, I really hope you enjoy this cover, and the upcoming Chapter 4!
I am still working on the plot to change, I have the scene in my mind but it's taking me a while to find a way to synthesize it and put it on paper^^ Oh well, soon, soon! :D

Coloured Pencils on A4 Paper.
Several hours.
Characters and art (c) :iconarven92:

I want to improve, I greatly appreciate feedback and constructive criticism regarding anatomy, page flow and overall composition. Thank you! :)

The format is spectacular. The colors blend well. The scene ties together well, but there is only a few things that is wrong with it. Firstly, not trying to be a bummer, but Lednaceks (Think I spelled that right.) neck bent in a unfashionable manner when he got pissed at Mr.ImaMurderYallForFun. As in, it looked like he snapped his neck. But on the bright side, he kapowed Mr.ImaMurderYallForFun into a tree, making the colors blend as if he was actually moving before your own eyes! I would recommend not mixing so many colors into one page though, or it starts to look messy. You actually didn't but there have been pages that got a kind of smeared look. Honestly other than that and the neck thing Lednacek beat Mr.ImaMurderYallForFun, a pleasing end to this page. But be warned, crowd. There is more brutality. Oh, about that, one more thing. There are actual fighting scenes in the 4th chapter, it's not mature filtered, but there is a mature filter in chapter one? I don't know. Just an confusion. Thank you for taking time and reading this, it was honestly easy to write, people, you should consider writing Critiques. It leaves a positive or negative review and can help the artist imporove! Thanks!

I have only read up to this point in the comic, and so far, I can say the art is truly amazing! The fur is detailed, and the anatomy is, from what I can tell, correct.
The story does seem a bit rushed, things seem to happen too quickly. You killed off a character before we knew them enough to care, and now another goes out to adventure? As to this point in the story, I give it 5 stars in vision, as you have expressed the emotion of the characters in the art, 4 in originality (wolves are a rather common animal for art and stories...), 3 in technique, because the storyline is rather rushed and confusing, and 2 in impact, as we don't even get to know a character before something big happens

Oh my, thank you so much for your critique! :)

I agree with your rating, this comic was definitely rushed, especially in the first two chapters. I evolved as a writer over the nine years I've spent working on this story, and I'm trying to make up for my initial mistakes in the later chapters :)

I do hope you find it an enjoyable read despite everything :)
Thanks again!

I'm actually having a bit of trouble finding the comic part I left off on in your page. Is there a folder for it or?...
ARVEN92's avatar
Oh sure! :D
I'm not exactly sure where you left off, but here is a folder with all of the pages :)…
Feel free to restart from the point you stopped reading :)

This my VERY first critique, so bear with me <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":P" data-embed-type="emoticon" data-embed-id="395" title=":P (Lick)"/>
First of all, your light/shadow effects are very impressive, and they have improved immensely from the start of your series. The shadows on the ground and the light shining down from above on the sword is well done. I like how Jackal, assuming that is Jackal, is hidden in the shadow, approaching the sword, and I especially like the effect of his tiny, glowing red eye. I am curious though, to whom does that shadow in the middle belong to?
All in all, it is a great piece, very inspiring. It sums up chapter 3 well. However, I have a few issues, and they are mainly with the ram demon. Her size, compared to the others, especially the rooster demon, seems off. I got the sense from the other pages that she is supposed quite large, but here she seems too small. The other issue with her is that her horns do not seem thick enough. In this piece, they look less like the horns of a ram and more like the tail of a scorpion, too thin and floppy.
But besides these small issues, I really like this cover page. The best drawn characters are definitely Orca and the rooster demon. Their poses are very good, and their expressions are even better. You can really feel the tension by looking at them. Well, great job again and keep up the good work!

Ohoho my, thank you so much for this critique! :D

I'm so happy you like the effects I used for this cover :D
That's right! The wolf hidden in the shadow is indeed Jackal^^ And the shadow in front of Orca is cast by another Zodiac Demon, Hest ;)

My, I see what you mean with Kozel, the ram demon XD She is indeed supposed to be bigger than that, I totally messed up her size there :P
And I also agree about those horns, I must make sure to give them more body XD

Truly thank you very much for your precious suggestions, I truly appreciate them! <3 :hug:
