Africa!!

Not a page, but something related to it in some way.
This is the cover for the first chapter of the comic, pages 1-33. It is also likely to be the cover for an upcoming printed version of Africa! It was long overdue honestly, I've been wanting to draw this for AGES <3 I'm very happy with how it came out, especially the shading on Africa :)
I purposely chose a very simple layout and subject, and I wanted to give Africa all the attention in the picture :)

I also wanted to say thank you to you guys. Your support made me want to continue this comic despite it being lots of hard work <3 Now I know I'll never quit drawing Africa until the story is over :)

When the time comes for this comic to be printed, I'll let you guys know and I'll put it up on my eBay^^
But for now, just enjoy the cover!

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! :)

To be honest, as soon as I looked at this, I thought, "Wow-that's amazing."
You have truly made some brilliant artwork working on your graphic novels, Arven. You've actually inspired me to make a comic, which I'm working on right now.
This picture is so amazing, and I don't think I could do any better. It shows you the fact who this story is about-Africa. This picture shows you the gentle side of her, seeming quite harmless as she sleeps right near her mother.
Once again, you have truly made some amazing artwork. You have many watchers, which you deserve.

Was it edited in some program as well? With the contrast and everything?

une image "simple" mais tout simplement efficace. 

Vraiment le contraste entre la fourrure d Giza et d'Africa est simplement parfait pour une couverture.

ça et le jeu de lumière aussi ~

Haha my computer zoomed in on the picture and I thought that Africa was lying in a cave, until I zoomed out and saw that it was her mom :)
great picture by the way, I love how her golden coat stands out against the dark background- Giza^^
