60 deviants said It was pretty average, still cool for their debut!
4%
13 deviants said It wasn't worth the hype!

:star: Point That Way Tails!



Photo references help the more challenging foreshortening poses! Use a camera and a mirror to your advantage!! My photo pointed too far forward so I adjusted Tail's arm to move more towards us (i.e. he's shifting his arm to the right a little more), hence the difference in angle and tilt of the right hand pointing.

Also, work out your perspective for big illustrations, define your horizon line and vanishing points before ruling the lines into place - prepping up with helpful guidelines go a long way in setting up for a successful illustration!

Kind of surprising you're still around on DA after a decade... Then again, so am I.

I doubt you remember me, though. I was SonicStarH/Klonoa443. I used to be with the Klonoa community, managing my own Klonoa group on DA like nearly seven or eight years ago. Not anymore, though, because of... disagreements. I won't say anything further on this.

Welp, keep up the good work, Mr. Wong. =)

Nope I still remember you as SonicStarH, long time no see buddy!

It was during the time that I started getting into Klonoa that you saw my work - it's been a while, gosh!

Thanks for droppin' by and wish you all the best in what you do!

Just wanted to send my thoughts in regards to what is happening in Sydney at the moment. I hope everything turns out ok in the end.

I just read the news... Crazy mate, I shall keep watch and pray for the safety of the citizens there. The Australian police/SWAT team are doing a fantastic job.

Thanks for checkin' mate!

Sadly it ended on a tragic note. But I have to agree the police did a great job. Hope you've been well by the way.

Yeah I just got up this morning and found out the results. Sorry to hear about the victims, prayers to their families. The Australian police did a top job and once again thanks for your concerns. I'm actually in Perth city which is the West Coast of Australia - the incident happened in Sydney which is the city in the East Coast of Australia. = )

I used to look at your art a lot! How's your comic artist career going? :D

Comic artist career? I don't remember having one! XD 

I did comics purely for recreation mate. = ) And I just got back from studying at the Academy of Art university in San Francisco - I decided to come home and live the life I once had in Australia, where I'm close to family and financially secure with a stable job at the casino. ;)

Oops sorry! It's been a while hehe!
I thought a while ago you had some journal about the financial problems you were going through (I hope that went ok) and I thought I remember there being something about you being a student with the goal of becoming a comic artist. Looks like my memory is pretty bad! :XD:

But you were working toward becoming another kind of professional, right? (art college). Good to hear you're going good! :)

Hey elson, how do you feel about megaman x and sonic boom being apart of the next crossover. I can't say I am overjoyed. :(

I'm going to say that I'm focusing on StH and SU for the time being, I'm on the road to recover with the series and I'd like to take one step at a time to do that.
