Sonic Art Collection (Inside Front Cover + Page01) by darkspeeds Sonic Art Collection (Inside Front Cover + Page01) by darkspeeds
This artwork will showcase to the editor at Archie Publications that I can utilise stock image from their personal database and recreate the contents of inside pages the moment you turn to the first page. Usually it details the disclaimer, copyright and credits of the magazine/publication concerned.


I've also gotten written permission from Mr. Yardley :iconyardley: to use the images for this project (which is pretty darn swell if you ask me!) . I'm still waiting for a reply from the awesome :iconherms85: (colourist) and Terry Austin (inker) to see if they're cool about having me use their art proceeds on the project. Again a reminder to all this magazine will be used as a portfolio submission to Archie Publications - I want to work in the DESIGN TEAM where available in future. 8-)



[UPDATE] 29-06-2013
I just got permission from :iconherms85:. Thanks a bunch mate and further thanks on the compliment on the page! Too awesome. = )

Ah, a shiny credit just for me! *A*

(Also, one last little check, I don't know if you typed all of that disclaimer stuff out yourself, but "Manufactured under" should be "manufactured under" and "Sega is register" should be "Sega is registered". For the former bit, I checked my issue of Sonic Super Digest. For the latter, it just made more sense.)

I'm so hiring you as my personal proof-reader in future! :giggle:

Thank you so much, lucky thing is I've been informed to send the file again (some technical adjustments were needed) so just before I sent it again I've made the changes. Thanks for spotting those! ;)

That would be a fantastic opportunity! OAO I'm still concerned I might have missed something but I'm sure most everything is covered.

Hope that all goes well with the printing!

Nah you did well, hell you even cross-checked the credits section - the land of no return aka the land of where 'people will completely ignore ~ most of the time!' XXD

Anyways let's see how it goes!

Looking pretty slick so far.

I noticed there's an ISBN number for this, I take it that's just for dummy text purposes?

Why not make a Sonic Tutorials, Model Sheets and Style Guides book?

Shhh! Don't tell them about the idea I have in mind should I ever make it to Archie! lol XXD

I've ALWAYS wanted to do a Sonic Tutorial book but first I need to get my artistic fundamentals down at Academy of Arts university and then if I'm good enough and I get a chance to work for AP then I'll see if I can sell the idea to the editor. Remember, SEGA needs to approve of it too if it ever gets official.

Ok. :)

But I think it would be really great if you did. :) I really want to know how to draw these characters: Sonic, Amy, Shadow and Rouge. :)
