Swallowtail cover by RenieDraws Swallowtail cover by RenieDraws
The cover for a 48-page comic I started writing during the summer of '09 while I was in Taiwan, sitting at my dad's place in the 100F heat and being bored out of my sanity.
I just pitched it to contest.

Cover was painted in PS. I would love to hear critiques!


_________
*EDIT* Sorry everybody, put I've taken the pages for this comic down, since it is old work and I needed to clean up my gallery!
The cover will stay up, though, since it's still very special to me.
Thanks for everyone's support for this piece. :)

"*Alizel's art is wonderful, especially the comics she does! The latest one she posted, Swallowtail, took my breath away the moment I saw it in my messages! The comic starts here with the Swallowtail cover." ( Suggested by NarniNar and Featured by Majnouna )

Thanks! Glad you liked it. It's actually really old now and I don't care for it so much anymore. I'm working on some newer stories though, which will likely be for sale, and I'm sure they'll be even better than this!

if i can use the book analogy, this is a real page-turner!! i thoroughly enjoyed the story, and the love and detail you put into every page. I can imagine the frustration at some points, just trying to get through some panels, some piece of composition or perspective taking longer than it should.. i'm starting my own web-narrative, running into all the regular snags and i have great respect for artists who just bite the bullet and get it done. Hats off to you, and a well deserved DD!!

Though the title should be improved. It's kinda hard to read. ^^

Yeah, it's a cool font. :)
But maybe if work on it, making it more solid with some texture, light and shadows, it might work :D
But the drawing is amazing!

This is a sweet-ass picture! Looks like an intersting comic. (Balls, I find another comic I want to start, and I begin school again in 2 days. I'm going to fave this, as a reminder to myslef to check out the comic.)

As for critique, I'm really not sure what to say. I can't pin any flaws on this, because it all looks fine; if you were trying to do something that you didn't accomplish here then I could give some advice, but otherwise, I have nothing. This girl looks badass.

Looks very cool :) I love all the stuff releated with what you've drawn here, very videogame inspired. I'm sure it will be a cool story ^^
And makes me want a lot to start with my project which I'v been working on for a couple of years but never find time or energy to start with -_-

It looks like the gun is bending a bit? like its wrapping around her and also the barrel doesn't line up with the direction of the gun.

Very cool piece! Congrats on the daily deviation!
