Join Africa-comic group!

And so it begins :D

The official cover for Africa is here :D And I'm so excited about it! Really soon I'm going to post the first page, and I really hope you like it! <3

This comic is going to be completely different from Chakra. No inexplicable situations, so supernatural situations, and no wolves :3

This comic will be along the lines of a documentary, especially for how the characters behave. :)
So, with that said, here is the cover! We see Africa standing on a rock at sunset. The place she lives in, and the place you see in the background, is Ngorongoro Crater, an actual place in Tanzania. :) You can see the rim of the crater in the distance in this picture :D

So, I really hope you like this cover! <3

On to the Critique.
To me, the vision is pretty good. The back legs look a bit awkward, but i understand because we're viewing it in a perspective.

The pose is really nothing new too me, but i loved the fact of the sun setting in the background. It gives the picture a dramatic feeling.
The technich is outstanding, the way you made the sun shine though the thinnest leaves growing out the tree. Also how you incorperated a full background without clasing the colors. The color pallet is also very nice.
I think that the way her expression is all serious, along with niceness of the picture, it has a great impact.

I also wanted to say how nice her eyes look. c:

But you might want work on cheetahs from this perspective. I'm noticing that that her backleg seem shorter then her front legs, making look slightly awkward.

Overall i think this art peice earned a A or a A-.

I hope to see more art from you. Your style is quite nice, and the plot for your comics are wonderful. Can't wait to see more of the Africa comic!

First, congrats for starting this project, I hope you'll have success and inspiration. Now, about that cover...

Starting from the title, you should do something with it's font, or letter spacing. My first read was "Afrka", and it's just after, when I've read your description, that I understood my mistake. Anyway, it means the font isn't clear enough.
I like all the details you've given, especially in the backgound (flamingoes, thermit things etc.). About your leopart, I love his eyes.

That green is really attractive, and avoids seeing, at first instance, the anatomy of the animal. Head and breast are ok, the real problem is about front paws: they look like twisted on the exterior, and have that strange slimer part on their top.
Another thing: check that triangle of fur between those legs. As I suppose, it is fur, but it's far too regular to look like ;)

Making a comic about Africa in a documentary way is original. As said before, the light behind gives a dramatic effect.... And it's really cool :D

Well... Looking at your stars, your note should be running about 4,25. I can't give quarter of stars though, and as I like your project... Good luck for the rest of it :)
