Chakravartin the Creator by Mystic-Forces
Chakravartin the Creator
"I am the true God, the embodiment of the wheel of life, the Spinner of all Mantra."

"I am Chakravartin.  It is I who keeps the wheels of this planet in motion."

"You have exceeded my expectations.  I praise you."

"How dare you defy me!"

"Arrogant Destructor!  I shall erase your very existence!"

"Weak, very weak.  Die!"

"The suffering this world has seen... was all to choose my heir!"



WARNING:  THE FOLLOWING DESCRIPTION CONTAINS SPOILERS TO THE VIDEO GAME, "ASURA'S WRATH."

Like most Capcom games, Asura's Wrath features a lot of colorful characters, including its villains.  However, despite loving all of its cast, I have to admit, the first two main antagonists are pretty genetic.  For example, Deus, the leader of the Seven Deities, is the typical villain with an egotistic, god complex, who's intent on taking over the world, and Viltra, a demonic entity that controls the Gohmas, is just a mindless beast of rage that intended on bringing about the end of the world.  Even when Asura defeated Deus and Viltra, the climax from that felt pretty generic to me as well.  It even felt like that something was... unfinished.

However, that all changed for me with the reveal of the game's true antagonist... Chakravartin!

You see, he is the one who was pulling the strings behind most of the story's events, including the release of the Gohmas and spurring Asura on the path of his vengeance.  And to top it all off, Chakravartin is the true god of Gaia.  Yet despite his omnipotence, he displays a calm, well-respectful manner to those who he thinks are worthy.

But his biggest characteristic that I enjoy the most of all that separates him from the rest of the villains is his neutrality.  His complete lack of empathy makes him neither good nor evil.  Chakravartin doesn't care how many lives will suffer or die over the countless eons, he only cares about the results for his own agenda to find the ideal ruler of the Planet Gaia so he can turn his attention to other planets he is charged of.  And if the final results don't satisfy him, he can simply reset the universe by destroying the planet and begin anew just like he has done before.  The kind of neutrality is so rare for an antagonist to display, and that is what makes him so unique and more engaging than the other villains in this story.

Regarding with the villain's design, I do love his first appearance as a shining, golden god with Hinduism/Buddhism characteristics, but I have to commend for this true form, Chakravartin the Creator.  He's practically the physical embodiment of life and death and a visual representation as the perfect human being (in regards with his anatomy and physical attributes at least).  Plus, his sleek design and incredible speed reminds me of Frieza, a well-known Dragon Ball Z villain.

Other things I like about Chakravartin include all of my favorite lines from him as well as his themed scores, including his introduction, his battle while in his first form, and his final battle while in his true form.  Also, on an interesting note, his final battle reminds me a lot of the final battle with Xemnas from Kingdom Hearts II, including the villain's design, the complete void of the final battleground, and the haunting score playing in the midst of the battle.

So yeah, it is unfortunate that you would have to pay extra for the DLC content to get the "true" ending.  But you know what?  With the reveal of a one-of-a-kind villain and a deeply satisfying final battle that led to the ultimate ending with the perfect blend of tragedy and triumph... that would be the price I would be more than happy to pay (sort of)!

So it looks like I’m finally back.  And hopefully with the New Year around the corner, I might be able to produce a lot more artwork to make up for the lackluster year it’s been for me.

Anyway, regarding with my need to increase productivity, I have been giving some thought over something during the holiday season.  Basically, I have been wondering if it’s time that not only should I get a new art program, but to also get a tablet for myself as well.

I’ve heard so much about these tablets, but I’ve never used one before.  Yet, they do sound quite promising as I could see how much time it would save for me compared to my usual routine: pencil, ink, scan, color, and edit.  Also, using the mouse to make those tedious adjustments so I can make my lines cleaner is really getting on my nerves.  So I figure that a new positive change is in order this time around.

As for a new art program, I used Photoshop CS3 for years since my days in art school, and I know that there are much better programs to choose from nowadays.  More specifically, I need one that is designed for comic book illustrators such as myself.  To my astonishment, I might have found the program that may suit my needs: Manga Studio 5.

According to some of the top articles I’ve looked through Google Search, Manga Studio 5 is one of the most highly recommended programs for illustrators, even more so than Photoshop.  Plus, Manga Studio 5 will cost roughly $50, and a current version of Photoshop can be pretty expensive.  So along with a new program, I plan to get a new tablet as well.  Websites have recommended “Wacom Intuos Pen and Touch Tablets.”

So despite knowing on what I might get for myself, I figure it would best if I ask for your opinion on this matter:

1) 
What’s your opinion over Manga Studio 5 (if you ever used it before?)

2)  Do you have any programs and/or tablets to recommend for me?  If so, explain why you prefer them over the others

3)  For the Wacom Tablets, there are different sizes to choose from.  Will it be better if I get a larger tablet for its space, or will it be not necessary for its small counterpart?   

I hope to hear your opinions as soon as possible.  They will be a great help for me towards my decision.  Thank you, and I hope you all had a nice holiday this year!
