Next Page

:bulletred: Where is the Eggman? - Page 169 :bulletred: [link]



Gaaaah!! X__X The last panel is kinda distorted (it’s sloping downwards right… X_X;; XD) Hmm… Notice Eggman has eyes!!!? O_O (via. middle panel! XD) Pretty rare to draw that in there… And I find it unique how Shadow said: “Sonic’s frisky allies”… =3 XD *giggles*

Well another overall page I’m happy with. There have been many areas that could be improved on but nevertheless I must move on to finish the story to save time! :D

Take it easy and enjoy the page guys! ;)

*goes to update his journal for the month…^^*


Rouge the Bat takes it easy while the two looked at her with suspicion – especially Shadow the Hedgehog. “Just where did she get this piece of information?” he says… Already he is tracing all possibilities and narrowing it down to some conclusion in which he won’t confirm just yet as to her true identity.

Dr. Eggman is at least calm on the fact that someone is able to retrieve the final Chaos Emerald. He expects no failure this time!

Shadow the Hedgehog barged into Rouge’s original plan and shared an alternative idea that could save their hide and at the same time get what they want quickly. What could be Shadow’s new strategy?



Goodness me! X_____X;; I didn’t have time to comment on the previous page! Gosh I’ve got yet another overwhelming response from you all… Thank you so much for your input… *bows in thanks*

I had a couple of laughs with some of them, a few I critically analysed, and a whole bunch that were pleasantly taken into heart… *hugs*

Bless you all for your amazing talents, kindness, respect and appreciation. *smiles*

This whole page is full of badass drawings. I wish I could draw Rouge as well as you. What did you use to ink this page? I'm curious. The Shadows on this page are so evil looking, I cant help but fave this. :3

You are a total master at drawing Rouge, I swear "O___O" I really adore how you draw her up.. she looks so cuuuute. Especially with the way you make her face ;.; She looks so serious and businessey in the first panel xD She looks brighter than normal, too.. I think it's because the lineart is particularly thin in that panel for her.. it's bolder on the third panel.. so that kinda makes her look a little more brighter. That's kinda cool, though => I like Shadow's expression on the first panel, too.

He's really running the show, too xD Eggman seems to be particularly quiet now while Shadow is being all penseful and not trusting of Rouge. Isn't Eggman.. like.. a super amazing genius? xD While Shadow was raised in a tube. *Hit*

I adore how you drew him in these panels, admittingly "O__O" Shadow looks really creepy.. especially with the shadowing (Nyarhar pun. *Hit*) on the second panel. He seems so quiet and uncertain if Rouge is an ally or not ;.; The way you darkened his bubble is interesting, too! Makes it look more clouded in thought =>

And the last panel is really creepy and cool as well "O___O" I don't think it was ruined at all! Shadow just looks.. really frightening. Especially with the way you made his mouth.. something about it makes it look creepy. Like he's really to attack Rouge.. except he's not gonna do it now and wait for a while longer ;.; Like a sinister grin..

But I'm probably just misjudging expressions or something xD This is a great panel, though! The style is wonderful and really sinking in for me ;.; Definitely a good idea to use this style instead of the style in Tails Away.. as I said before on another content, that brings out more of a difference between them => Very cool!

jaggedice200 Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2004
panels 2 and 5 looks a lil sloppy
But they will do, I kinda liked the way panel
5 came out. If the bg was a lil neater, the work
on the character himself would of came out just fine...
only in my Opinion though, others might not like that kinda
luleiya Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist
ARGH. Ok, so I :heart: EVERY FREAKIN' PANEL!!!!!!! Oh my gooshie-gosh, bro!!!!! ;O; this is uber......amazing, fantastic, splendid, *insert more words of praise* <3 loooooove the skretchiness.

o.o Am I late? XD

I think the letters are starting to grow on me.. As the letters didn't me as much as the last times ^^
I love the darkness effect you did on the 3rd and last panels. It really amplifies the feeling that Shadow's plan is that evil XP
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist
No of course not! :XD: I'm glad you have pointed out about the lettering. ^_^ It was a good move to capitalise it afterall. :)

I also appreciate how you enjoyed the darkness effects. I hope to keep improving on my manga techniques to make the story clear and interesting to read. ^_~

very nice! deserves a :_fav: most definitely!
shadow-freak Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2004   Digital Artist
I like the 2nd and last panels and how much darkness you put in them. IT just makes it feel really ominous, and with Shadow in it, it just makes him all the more hot. *drools all over the page and gets smacked by teh darkspeeds*

Also, I like how much detail you put into the 1st panel.
Yup, Shadow's starting to catch on to things.
so I guess the answer to the title's question is..... no. xD *smacked again for being cheesy*
indimew Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2004

*falls over laughing and compiles of list of things she'd never believe Shadow would say!!*
seru-gal Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2004  Student
Well, as always I think the artwork and the detail is spectacular. The last panel with the Shadow front-shot I particularly like. :3 Heh. But this new style...neee... Honestly it's a bit too...foggy if you will. What I really liked about your comics was how crisp and clear all your details were, and how everything was neat. The way you have it now sort of makes it look a little rushed, and messy. :/ So to me it is a little disappointing. But whatever suits your fancy, keep on with it. I'll still love the comic and it's pace.

n3ko Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2004
I really love this fuzzy effect...but then this time...the effect makes it look like it's some thing in the past being brought by another mind...
Just a random thought ^^; (fuzzy memorial...etc). The distorted memories make it as if all isn't happening right now *nods*

I keep saying this...but I really love how you draw shadow! xD
He looks so evil, and yet he DOESN'T >o<
I know, I dun make sense.. ^^;

*waits for next page*
SoRn Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2004
Man, how do you do it Darkspeeds? XD Great stuff. You jump into the drawings with body and spirit. I seriously like that. You got your own style, and you take your time to finish the drawings. Much respected.
ine-rocks Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2004
Wow Shadow speaks in a shadowy balloon while he's in the shadows... Cool! ^^
RileyTheHedgehog Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2004
*gasp!!!!* O_____________________________O

O.....M.....G.....!!! I really a million, bizillion, trizillion *shot* XD absolutely LOVE how the 2nd & last panels turned out!! :excited: And not just because its got Shadow; oh no, it's because it looks so mysterious looking! =D

The second panel, my most faved on this page, really looks like Shadow's in his own thought in a mysterious sorta looking way! Reminds me of anime technique, no? >3

Last panel turned out fine! =D It's not bad at all! Also reminds me of another anime technique! Gosh, I think too much anime. XD; *shot* But anyways, it's really good because it's like a fading effect when the bad guy goes into planning mode; like what Shadow's doing. Great idea to change the color of the last speech bubble. Smart. ;) It fits well with the fading in. If you know what I mean. <3;

Phew! Rouge almost got caught! She's gotta stop making herself look so suspicious! X3 lol
Sonicfan101 Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2004
Wow, this looks really awesome. You never cease to amaze me with your work. ^_^
ArcticFreeze14 Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2004
Awesome! It may be a teensy bit sloppy, but I actually like the last panel! ^_^ It's the first panel that irks me a bit, but that's not a problem at all. What I'm basically concentrating on is the story and how everything's unfolding, so no worries in that department! xD
Airlight Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2004
Sloppy but in a neat way, another well produced comic, and EGGY's EYE! :rofl: :XD: I've always wondered what his eye color was.. Hmm.. I liek how it was shaded in one angle! Kudos to you DarkSpeeds! ^_^ :clap: Again, next one shouldn't be too long =]

Yaaay! Another comic drawn by Darkspeeds

Awesome job!!! *two thumbs up* ^.^

I love the way you draw Shadow and other characters, their almost look official.

Your the greatest artist of all time! ^______^

Oooo... SHadow is plotting! lol Awesome new comic page, Darks! I love the brushed affect! :D
MilesTailsPrower-007 Featured By Owner Sep 17, 2004  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Goodness!! I'm really loving this new style already-- it really looks fantastic. However, I wondered if you were just doing it in pencil, then using Adobe to make it look more black-ish and to blur it a bit or if ink was used at all? The slightly blur-ish look makes it kind of look a little like a recollection (memory) though... *blinks*

You and your fantastic line art! Just looking at the characters I can see all the accurasy and style combined, and I always thought that was very cool =] Very cool transition between expressions through the panels. The angles seem to change frequently too, which adds a dynamic edge to the pages.


...And we can see Eggman's eyes (or at least one of 'em) for a change! LOL! XD Maybe he thinks they're too beady or he doesn't like the color so he hides 'em with shades. You're so masterful at this comic. O.O Rouge looks especially cool here since we actually got a BACK view of her. I hardly see those except when you turn her back to you in the games, lol. Shadow, serious as always. I like the way you capture his personality through his stance and dialogue. Even his smirk looks in character.

The only thing that looks off here would be on the last panel. The shading under Shadow's nose for the shadow looks a bit dark. That could just be as a result of the effect you're using on Adobe (if you're using one, LOL XD), or maybe you need to switch to a harder lead the next time. ^_~ Just a suggestion though, sweetie.

I still like the rather streakish look to the shading in some areas ^__^ Excellent as ever.

*Oogles and drools over her keyboard as she stares at Shadow* :drool: Mfff.... :heart: *Slapped* OY! What..? Oh, yes, comment... xD;

This is VERY good, Darky. ^^ I really like this new style. It looks really sketchy in a way. Kinda old like a newspaper article or something. xD *Bad analogy* Shadow looks TOO sexy in the last panel and your interpretation ((Did I spell that right? Meh. -__o; )) of the plot. .o. Ees veddy nice. And veddy good too.

Last panel is my favorite. *LATCHESTOEET!*
