SONIC BOOM Unwrapped - Studies (Sonic @the Desert) by darkspeeds SONIC BOOM Unwrapped - Studies (Sonic @the Desert) by darkspeeds
Did some studies of Sonic the Hedgehog by analyzing the Sonic Boom TV series trailer before I rushed myself into penciling the first page to my new Sonic fan comic series.


I sketched some Sonic expressions and poses that captivated me from the trailer by using a (01) Micron Pen (I'm starting to really love these pens! They're much better than the Sharpie pens I used to use for my pen drawings).


After scanning those sketches I placed them on a canvas and played around with colors and textures to see if I can find a style that I can use to distinguish the comic. I'm liking this earthy textured look and I'm diggin' the temperature of the colors used on this palette. 


Anyways a job well done I say, and now it's time to get some sleep before I work on some more on the project. 


And I shall say this again: Sonic Boom Sonic looks so damn sexy. :giggle: 8-)

Hi I really love your Sonic Boom studies. It looks too awesome and epic for words. Is it okay if I use your studies as a guideline? If that's okay? :D

It was his pose and expression right after skidding to an emergency stop to prevent himself from falling off the cliff edge. A sigh of relief one might say. :D

I don't think I'm going to like this show. It seems like it's going to be a full-on comedy with some action added in as an afterthought. Why can't this show be like Avatar: The Last Airbender, Code Lyoko, Teen Titans, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, etc. where it has a balance between action, drama, and comedy? I mean, did you hear about the world resetting after each episode? That means that there will be no continuity whatsoever. Also, I heard some of the dialogue in the Behind-the-scenes video and it was cringeworthy. It was too childish. Look, I'm all for things being a little lighthearted and all which is why I want DC Comics to stop being all dark and gritty and just be fun again, but it's just that I don't want everything Sonic related to be for little kids. You see, this is why my favorite rendition of the Sonic series is Sonic the Comic. But now, the only Sonic anything that I enjoy are Sonic the Comic Online and some Sonic hacks for the Sega Genesis. However, for StC-Online, I have to wait several months for a new issue to come out but I understand why. Still, my options are kind of limited. Ah well.

AoStH world resets in each episode and I still enjoyed it. The only episodes that has continuity is the chaos emeralds episodes (I forgot the name of it). Yeah, some of the dialogue does sound cringeworthy but it seems like the actors were having so much fun during the behide the scenes foortage so I'll wait until I see more and see what happens.

It appears that they will have Knuckles be an idiot in this. So, it looks like they are going for that musclehead cliche that is constantly in a lot of kid shows these days.

I sure hope not. I'm curious to see what's going on in that episode. He mentions something about looking like a cookie so I'm just wondering if he transformed into a cookie and it sounds like they're having a picnic

Is there a reason as to why we can't get a serious Sonic show anymore? Why can't we get a Sonic show that is similar in tone to something like The Legend of Korra or atleast something like Nickelodeon's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

I'd thought Sonic X could be serious and dramatic at times. The Japanese version atleast.

I guess. However, the animation left a lot to be desired.
