I don't think I need to write a long description on this but I'm glad I've managed to finish this by today.
*Darkspeeds instantly falls dead on the floor...sooooo tired...*
Once again I'm overjoyed by the break I'm getting, it's truly an opportunity to start working more on the SA2 fan-comic
and other projects for you guys to enjoy. ^_^
P.S. I just love how I drew everyone!!! All seperate layers too! X___X
The original sketch for the cover page looked liked this:
Different ne? O_O I was kinda dissapointed that I wasn't able to deliver the exact plan I was intending to in the sketch...
Maria, G-San & Biolizard
layers were suppose to fade into the background, leaving Shadow
front first grasping impact and impression to the reader/viewer. Sonic and gang
were to be allocated to the upper right-hand side of the cover page to balance things out... It took me AGES to figure how to get the right combination... I had to resize layers and swap positions ever now and then to get the perfect fit... but I deemed to fail soonafter... -_-;;;
However I came up with an alternative and as a result I was quite pleased with the finished look... ^_^ Overall it was another fantastic experience... I just love to draw, colour and shade all the Sonic characters. Getting the official look was deifnetly a challenge.
I hope my cover page will be able to entertain you guys for at least a few seconds. ^__~
is ever so darn cool and concious character... And (dare I say it...) sexy too... O_O
*get's mauled by his sibblings... X_X* That's not what I meant! X___X *bruises and band-aids on his head* ^_^;;;
Maria... Gerald Robotnik
* and Biolizard, they all play an integral part to the original story. Sonic's
looking cool and speedy - as if he's ready for more action once again. ^___^ Tails
... kawaii as always... Amy
too ne? Eggman
just rules with that expression... Knuckles
are in there for the M.E. of course. ^_^ And... hey? Look what we have here? Chao, Good+Bad Chao, Omachao, Big the Cat, Froggy, Tikal and Fang
! ^____^ I like to bring as many characters and game concept stuff into the comic as long as they relate to the storyline, event and flow of time. ^_^ Wouldn't it be great to see the Chaotix Team
? ^_^ Heh..heh..
Maybe you'll see them on day... ^_^
Well nothing much more to say but...
Thank you all for your support...
Close friends and respectful sibblings who I give a hug almost everytime I see them...
^____^ *hugs* I couldn't have achieve on of my dreams if it weren't for the feedback I've recieved over the past 2 years as a dedicated Sonic Team
style artist... ^_^ Again I couldn't elaborate more on my thanks and appreciation, I'm so grateful of your support... really mean it..
*hugs tight to everyone he knew ever since he first submitted his early pages of SA2 Fan-Comic
to his first Sonic online community* ^_^
Doing that brings me great memories... How I made my first online friends at SoaH CitY, the oldschools. ^_^ Then there was the messageboards saga at SoaH CitY, I started to draw group pics to make sure they are a part of something special... where people can treasure friendship and respect... ^_^ Later on I met up and take heart with some of the most closest friends and sibblings I could ever have... each with their own unique story on how I first met them.. or them meeting me!
... Sonic No Miko, SUPERSONIC, Vee-Jay, Nambuk, Dodge
and the rest of theOz gang, DarKaoZ, Zephyr
and many others... ^_^...
It was all worth the effort and I really encourage others to do their best to achieve their dreams one day.
*hugs for luck* ^__^
Well I'll just end it here cuz it's waaay past bedtime...
*ZzzZZzzzzz -.-* I'm going to be writing my journal properly soon... it'll be about 4 pages long or something like that...
Take care everyone and I hope to get back on DA and owe you guys something in return for your patience and support. ^_^ Ja~ne! ^___^
