Just For Fun Series (Piece 7)

Source: Tails Away

Man it's about time I put some focus on Tails Away!! XD XD XD ^_^

I doodled my ideas of a side story for the manga. This side-story will be taken place during the time Tails have his solo adventures on True Skies. ^_^

Eventually Tails and party (Amy, Duke [Diamond Edge crew - Bunta, Sirus, Slider & Mary] & Sara) will meet up with this group of three young adventurers - Vale's party (Vale, Hunter & Hajime and possibly one more (?) Master?).

It was really awesome when I thought about a situation where both parties will meet up for an event that they will share in common of the good. This means that at some stage they may both join forces to fulfill True Skie's destiny. ^_~

If this is true the villains will be the same case. :D

Read up on what I wrote in the page and I'll follow up with any questions you may have. :)

I'll be sketching some more conceptual art during this study break. The next piece will be of Vale's best friend - Angela. Stay tuned for more next time. ;)



:-- "Just For Fun Series" is used for the following reasons:

1) A teaser page for a current manga I'm working on. (e.g. Tails Away)

2) A resource page for a current manga I'm working on. This means a page that is sketched before-hand. A pag that is drawn before the final finishing touches are added to the page. This is for those who wish to understand how some pages are drawn in the process.

3) A concept sketch of some sort. Maybe a character design of the latest manga: 'Healing Hearts' or a map/script in drawing of a certain chapter I'm doing.

4) A blooper of some sort but not done in the quality that is of a regular manga page with shading or other specified methods (e.g. coloured).

:-- All JFF pieces are sent to the scrapbook within a weeks time. Depending on the artist's decision, if he feels it should continue to stay in the 'deviant' gallery then it shall be done.


:-- Tails & Amy is (C) by Sonic Team

o.o So that's how you plan your characters! =P
It's so well ordered and clean (Even when there are striked words XD)

.............Hunter looks like you man...totally... (excuse my horrible slang) anyway tis awsome!!!

I like the designs~ I think they are unique. Not many a times, do I see a person create a blind character or anymore with physical difficulties, in fact. I think it's gonna be hard putting yourself into a blind character's point of view and knowing what she can and cannot do~ GOOD LUCK! I really like how you drew Vale's eyes. Really seem like a blind person's eyes~ What is Vale's personality? introvert?

So what do they call the hunter? "OI, HUNTER, COME OVER HERE!" Like that? XD no other name to call him na~

Dang, you put so much thought and effort into creating characters it envious x3 They're all very cool and cute at the same time. Hunter does look alot like Darkspeeds but I'm sure he's far far more unique that he leads me to believe...^^; anyways.
MilesTailsPrower-007 Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2004  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Weeeeell.... If I'm correct sweet Darky told me he was gonna give Hunter a bit of an edit. ^_~;;
Masatoshi Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2004
Hunter look like Darkspeeds... o_O
MilesTailsPrower-007 Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2004  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
*giggles* Don't ignore it! XD Hunter looks alot like Darkspeeds, luv ^^; Why not actually just MAKE IT Darkspeeds officially? *SHOT* Ehe J/K... ^_~

Ah Vale... the blind girl... =(

I actually feel really bad whenever someone makes a blind character-- however, the blindness can actually show more artisticness and emotion in how you portray her... =] Which is good. It tests you! I like how you've laid out this thing. All the info... Pretty good referance to have. And Vale is very pretty. ^^ Good designs on all of the characters really.

Vale is soooooooo pretty... ;_; I like her long shiny hair... Her outfit looks pretty cute too.

Hunter looks like Darkspeeds I SWEAR. XD Kind of like... the Anti-Sonic characters in the Archie Comics. Anti-Sonic was like Sonic's evil alter ego. He looked like Sonic, only more punk-like and he had a completely different attitude and seemed a bit more... dark-ish.. He was (of course) from another dimension, blah blah. So this looks like Anti-Darkspeeds to me... *SHOT SHOT SHOOOOT*

Ah well. He's cool as heck! Love his shoes... @_@ Ooh

Hajime has a seemingly rare type of disposition. Hmm... can't place it right now cuz I'm typing this too quickly.. Still, his stance expression, and whatnot seem to give off a cetain feeling about him... is this some sort of omen? O_O;;;;; ...

You do very well designing characters and personalities for them. ^^ I always like the looks and history you manage to give them. =] The outfits are always so cool! O.O Lotsa personality in all of it, luv ^_~

We can talk about this on the phone if you like XP *giggles*

Ooh, you sat down and PLOTTED! this is great man, I would hate to see a complete set of your meticilous planning notes.


I need to sit down and do these for jafwachat this holidays.
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist

Gosh I best to slim down on detail next time. ^^;

Hmm that's a fun challenge. I'll try to give out hte plot in concise ways and in formats that you can remember or are of ease to read. ^_^

Thanks for pointing that out Jon. *thumbs up*

Well you have plenty of time up your sleeve after exams. Just don't think about anything else and put your thinking cap on, drinka glass of enthusiasm juice and you'll be brain stormin' in no time! XD
sonictail Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2004
nah, the detail is cool, I just spend too much time reading. But yeah I have a buttload of planning to do -_-;


that and I need to dust my tech drawing skillz off, I need backgrounds!
dodgefoxx Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2004
I see a bit of Darkspeeds in Hunter =P Man you make a lot of detailed notes and stuff around these, great looking designs so far.
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
Hey what do you mean? O_O;;!! *shaves his hair for a new design later...*


Nah I'll keep it that way. ^_~

Thanks man, I really appreciate you compliments on the notes and designs. I've got Angela next to present. ^_~

Her facials looks a little like the oldschool Kaoru-chan! :D
