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! :)

This my VERY first critique, so bear with me :P
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!

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

At first glance, I thought that the title was written in Hylian.  Heh.

Hi, can I ask you a couple of questions? Well I want to know how long it took you to do one page at a time? How much money have you earned so far from selling you comic? And what paper and sketchbook do you use? Please answer all my questions! :) thanks.
Reply
:iconarven92:
ARVEN92 Featured By Owner Aug 19, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Sure thing!

One page takes me an average of 10 hours, depending on complexity it can take a little more or less :)
As for earnings, I honestly haven't earned much so far, that's the main reason why chapter 3 hasn't been printed yet :P

As for paper, I use regular A4 white inkjet office paper, the one commonly used for printers :D My sketchbooks are from many different brands, I don't use one in particular :D I basically draw on any piece of paper I find XD

there sword is already breaking?! how comes? what effect will the cracks on the sword do to the story?
Reply
:iconarven92:
ARVEN92 Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2014  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hoho you guessed ;) This sword is very ancient and has already been used in countless battles, therefore it's quite cracked. However, it's also very sturdy and despite its frail looks, it won't break that easily :) But the cracks ARE going to be important later on ;) Can't reveal anything though!
