Chakra - Battle of the Titans; a comic inspired by a video game that was the beautiful border breaking phenomenon created by Clover Studios named Okami.
I admittedly, am a very strong fan of the masterpiece Okami, and from day one I discovered this series, I was a fan of it as well.

I've been following this graphic novel devotedly for years! When I see an update in my inbox, I set whatever I am doing aside and put full attention into the page. I will tell you that it is a mystery how this talented young artist makes not one, but two detailed, passionately drawn comic pages by hand using traditional tools, and uploads a new one every one to two weeks. I also anticipate every new page of her Africa-Comic that draws you into the very realistic ordeals of wild cats and animals. The quality of both comic universes blows me away.
I have tried my patience with making comics and writing them at a steady pace, but given up rather quickly many times. It's by far not easy to share a visual story panel by panel like this. As a matter of fact, thousands of kids and adults alike tried their hand with being a comic writer, and too often leave a comic that has just begun, to only fade away after about the seventh page.

With the introduction out of the way, now, let us get us get into the meat of this critique...
- - - - - - -

Vision: ARVEN92 cuts no corners when trying to share a story with us. With each page, she painstakingly strokes her inner mind onto paper for all the world to see.
She eagerly wants to plant you into her universe. It feels as though she personally given you the plane tickets to visit her head canon. I know each of her characters so well, they feel like real people, even if they are two dimensional canine OCs.
I believe her vision, is to show kids what rue friendship is, and having faith in your pals. There is betrayal, and forgiveness, guilt, and love, horror followed by passionate vengeance.

Originality: This is no mistakenly, the love child of a large fan of Okami. And it has some basic roots from the video game.
However, over the years, I won't lie... I have forgotten that. Typically something that takes roots from a franchise will not be very original. But this has grown into it's very own independent tree, it's own solid as stone franchise. This story has grown so very much, it's extraordinary. None, absolutely none of the current characters are rip offs. Every single one is original and rich in personality and individuality. Most of the main cast would pass a 'silhouette test', where if you take each character and black them out, you would still know who they are. Very few 'original character's can pass that in modern day online comics.
You also could not tell most online wolf comics apart if you took them and summarized their plot without giving away character names. They would easily be mixed up.
There are no aggravating main character, or 'Mary Sues', no overdone clichés. There are also no continuity errors or plot holes that I can find.

Technique: Oh joy, I couldn't wait for this important, and very relevant part about this comic series, and this critique. This piece's technique, and the other works like it from this artist's gallery, are phenomenal. To create page after page, every week, for years by hand, with only colored pencils... that is insane! The level of detail and dedication put into this comic is remarkable, put into each page. Hardly any descriptive words will do for discussing this artist's traditional work. A lot of respect goes out to a person who has the guts to rely on one medium, that has no magic tools, no magic undo buttons to create her comics of hundreds of pages, a thousand panels, a million stokes. One wrong move, and there is little they can do to correct a color pencil mistake. And yet, this comic is not sloppy. It's done very well.
The majority of all artists online, especially comic artists use digital programs to paint them or assist them heavily.

Impact: This comic seeks to invoke emotions from it's viewers a lot. And it does just that very successfully. One of my favorite impacts Arven pulls off well is suspense and action. She loves clashing her characters into each other in mid run which is hilarious. She's fantastic at expressing emotions and sensations in her character's faces and body language. No two faces are drawn the same in her comic. Oh and one of my favorite things about her work, are her stunning wordless pages...
Yes, you know what I'm talking about.
Arven has uploaded quite a few comic pages that are completely void of all written language, and it's those pages that are worth a thousand words. The faces and bodies say everything the viewers need to know. And that, is something I deem worthy of mentioning in 'impact'.
Arven is a master of making an impact on your emotions with only visual influence. Little describing is ever needed. And what she is trying to get across to you usually is soaked in within seconds of lying your eyes on the page.

With that, I end my critique.
- - - - - - - - - -

I believe that this is one of the highest scores I ever given a deviantart critique. I truly did not want to do one of those loathsome 'kiss ass' critiques, that are useless, swarming deviantart, and a blatant attempt to gobble your favorite artist's butt. However, I really couldn't find much negative to say about these comic pages. I can not give constructive criticism.

Well, the coloring can occasionally be a little sloppy in some spots at times, but that is to be expected. Colored pencil is a very difficult medium to predict and control 100%. More respect to the artist who can get a colored pencil to do even have of what they want it to do.

ARVEN92 is undoubtedly, one of my favorite artists and a huge current inspiration to me. I for one, hold no biases and do my best to be fair in my critiques. I have not wrote one in years... so yay for this being the first critique I motivated myself to write after so long. It took me so long to write one because I hate lazy, worthless critiques that are no different from a large comment.

Do not create critiques if you are only going to write a big compliment with the minimum of 100 characters. Just don't. Thank you. Lol.

I hope you all deem my critique fair, even if it wasn't the most constructive with it's lack of underlining things to improve in the comic art. At least I may have made it more clear what the viewers might love and want to see more of.

You know, much like the spirit of C.Y.'s chakra coming out and taking physical form, I feel like now would be the perfect time for Hielos' to show himself. I mean, we've seen this frozen version of him twice already and this marks the third time...but I just think it would be more interesting and really, really show his grief at the prospect of his friend being truly dead (which I honestly hope so) if his charka came bursting out.

WHO SPILLED KETCHUP ALL OVER THE SWORD

Also a few pages ago when Kuma's collar was on the ground, I think it was too itchy for him so he scratched it off then went for a walk
