FIIIIIINALLY I get to post this! :faint:

It's been done for AGES, and right when I finish it, BANG, DeviantART decides to glitch up and won't let me load ;_;

Did the same thing happen to you guys?
DA being off limits for the past three hours?

Oh well...

Anywho, here is a promotional poster for a new comic I'm planning to make :)


NO

, I ABSOLUTELY WON'T give up on Chakra.


NO

, this comic is NOT STARTING STRAIGHT AWAY, I still need to finish the plot first XD

But as you can see, wolves won't be the main characters anymore - A female leopard called Africa will.

The story will focus on Africa's lifestyle as a solitary leopard, her struggles with other predators and her rivarly with the male leopard Chui.

I hope you enjoy the comic, but meanwhile, enjoy this promotional poster^^
More will come soon! :)

Feel free to post critique on this piece. I particularly appreciate tips on anatomy, lighting and overall composition

Thank you!

Okay. First of all, this caught my eye--which means your preview accomplished your goal. The font is skilfully combined with the image. The background doesn't detract at all from the focus. It is simple enough to not be distracting but detailed enough to fit.
As for the anatomy, this is pretty awesome. I always find drawing from angles like these pretty hard. However, you managed to draw her in a tricky position without it looking weird. In fact, it's very well done. Nice job on that!
Love the tail.
The lighting fits well. One tip for that--the shadows should be tinted. Not just grey. Usually, natural light creates blue or brown shadows. The highlights naturally would usually be light yellow, but the white works for the glare and the way you set up the light.
Honestly, I don't see how I can give you less than 5s though.
Can't wait to see what comes of this! Love your art!

You wanted a critique, and i shall give you one ^^

Vision: The overall picture is just gorgeous! The light and shading is marvelous and I see no flaws in that. I love the effect you give with making the perspective look as if you are a bug on the ground looking at your beautiful character! The mountains are gorgeous in the background and the fading looks great! The grass looks great, how it covers her paws and over distance makes it harder to see her front paws. I love the sun and the color and the deepening of it away from the sun and how you can just slightly see the rays of the sun. But one thing is, if it is possible for you to just blend the sky the tiniest bit then it would look like the rest of the poster ^^

Originality: I would say in this category, it is not as original as they come but in the perspective, it seems new :) I have seen many scenes where the perspective is from straight behind or up above the characters looking out towards a beautiful horizon, usually mountains.

Technique: Your technique is always spot on! I see nothing wrong in this category :)

Impact: Overall again, this piece is just marvelous! I always loved your art and you can only get closer to the height of your abilities, which has definitely shown! :heart:
