Sonic Art Collection (COVER ART - 1st Issue) by darkspeeds Sonic Art Collection (COVER ART - 1st Issue) by darkspeeds
This is the cover art to a publication concept I'm going to present to Archie Comics booth at San Diego Comic Con 2013.

It will act as a mock publication and portfolio submission on my behalf. The art book (or magazine more rather) will contain 50 pages for the time being, featuring a range of well renown (and not so well renown - which personally I feel that these artists should deserve more recognition) artists that can draw 'Sonic the Hedgehog' from the Archie Comics universe competently and passionately.

More information can be found about this initiative on my next journal post: [link]

That's a great idea ^^ Archie comics style is required to be part of it? I should maybe try to draw something in that style, and maybe if i get it perfectly, you might feature me :p (just dreaming :p )

I absolutely agree, there are thousands of talented sonic artists out there so this is a great idea. Just wondering is this going to be sold to comic book stores too? I would definitely purchase. Hell, I might make a submission

At this point of time this is just a mock publication to submit to Archie Publications at their booth in Comic Con 2013. Treat it as my portfolio submission and also a way to show the editor a selection of artists who can deliver high quality work based on the hit comic series.
