Issue 1 Cover

+16 hours at least, I'm sure. This is the first picture I actually spent this much time on, and I think the process was good for me. :) I will be re-vamping the first two pages also, ;)

EDIT: // New logo test. I might use this, but for now I need a skinnier cover anyway. I'll update this one more time, probably a long time from now, before I print. I want to fix the fur texture and by then maybe I'll decide on a logo.

EDIT 2 :// Testing a new logo.... Critiques appreciated.

This is very pretty, I like the detail in the fur and the color of the eyes.

I'll probably fave each page aswell xD This is so beautifully done and it's practically impossible to not fall in love with it. The eyes are so captivating and draw the viewer right in... well done! :)

I'll try to critique on the logo, although I don't know what good it will do. x3

I think it looks really great. I like the glow around it. The only thing I would say is to maybe clean up the lines a little bit? Maybe so it doesn't look so scribble-y? And the 'R' and 'A's look a little bid squished. But I really like the way you did the 'D', it really takes on the theme of the comic. 8DD

Hope it helped, somewhat. x3
