Hey folks, this week I’ll be critiquing the work of H.D. Harris particularly his webcomic:
Quick overview (taken from website)
Amara Is the tale of two elven sisters: one, born without magic, and the other without a mother’s love. The story follows them as they go down very different paths and the consequences for everyone around them as they are pulled into a life-or-death case of sibling rivalry that has far-reaching effects for the world of Amara.
What I liked:
Room for improvement:
If I were to add something to Harri’s website I would include a “characters” page or even an appendix. Much as I enjoy the complexity of Amara I sometimes felt confused. There’s a wide cast of characters here and not all of them receive a thorough introduction.
The backgrounds of Amara leave a lot to the imagination, in fact very often the they’re simply a single color (not that I can talk!) – I would love to see the world of Amara as visually fleshed out as the writing is. When there is a background it sends to be pretty bleak.
