SUNDAY'S BUNDLE OF STICKS! Darkspeeds' comments
What a great start once again -
's active portrait shines through with a never before seen dynamic pose. The rhythm and flow could be improved, as well as the overall design of her gesture - her left hand should show in my opinion. Think of it as a silhouette, will we fully understand what's going on? Nevertheless good job dude!
Sticks and her VIOLIN PLANTS....? Dude... Genius!! I love how she played up her oddball personality into this. Strewth
has done it again and wins the award for a DOUBLE ACT - meaning she did TWO fan art entries within the few days we had of the marathon. Splendid work and I can't help but adore that illustration of Amy and Sticks of hers - we can see a powerful relationship and bright future for the two!
This just in!
has managed to produce this stunner on time! I love the color combinations of dark-green and red-orange, it really meshes together and her charming expression simply melts my heart.
icon:Nif-T: decided to join in the bandwagon and produce her interpretation of Sticks - she looks rather shy, I wonder what she's thinking!
was very kind to suggest to me
's awesome fanart of Sticks - just look at her fly! Wait... Skid? Uhm calling on the boomerphone? Oh whatever it still looks awesome.
PHEW-WEE! Will you look at that!!
blew me away with this rendition of Sticks in her own little world. The dynamic pose (just look at how he did her pose, she definitely has a good understanding of anatomy - probably the best pose I've seen out of all the collection we had so far). The colors work beautifully - I can feel the atmospheric perspective as he distanced the active foreground (Stick's blurring boomerang in mid-air), from the focal point (ie. Sticks swinging away her boomerang), and the background. Excellent rhythm and flow and last but not least, he did a KICK-ASS typography of the characters name. Well done a-r-q, I'm gonna dedicated a space of it's own for your artwork. *faved*.
's Sticks is simply adorable.
Now this is an interesting one...
did toon-spoof inspired illustration which is a nice change of pace. Check out the full story by clicking on her image - pretty hilarious stuff!
kindly showcase a whole bunch of Sticks fanart in one go! Do check those out! In fact,
did pop by and post his link here and that self-initiative deserves a comment. His rendition of Sticks and Marine is adorable, I'd say there is some anime/manga influence on those expressions - very fitting for capturing the moment of those two gushing together - "kawaii"
Oh god.... LMAO!!!! HA HA HA HA!! Dude! DUDE!! I love this!! I can't help but smile and watch this over and over again!! Sonic being cocky didn't get him any favors! Great job on the animated piece
's Sticks fan art is rather... Uhm... Seductive? lol What were you think girl? "Raarwwggh!" *SHOT* Kiddin', I'm kiddin'.
I will stand by what I said though if you had Stick's eyelids half closed. Anyways I like the soft features on this piece - it really adds in a feminine quality to it - and regarding her pose, it can definitely be improved, however keep in mind that THAT is a very difficult pose to draw. Great job overall and the rendering is fantastic too!
's extreme TOON version of Sticks is absolutely spot on. I feel the energy on this, so much so that the smile on Sticks is matching mine right now. Great job dude. Sticks waving hand is also putting me in a trance, I can't help but smile with glee and say 'HIIIII!!' back to her!
Last but not least, (and what an awesome way to end this marathon with a bang) we have
epic group shot of the prominent Sonic boom characters - all in one! And I can tell that Kyla has put in the time on this, she planned out the way this was going to structured and also paid attention to how they will relate to one another after rendition. The colors work well, their expressions are full of life and I can't help but smile and be proud. The only thing that I will honestly say, bugs me a little, is watermarked illustrations. I can understand the intent but it kinda destroy's the impact of the piece with a distracting piece of semi-visible text stuck in the middle of the drawing. Nevertheless I love this drawing and it's going to my favs! *faved*
P.S. Woah! This just in! The moment submitted this, two more entries came in! Talk about just-in-time!
I'm a fan of this rendition of Sticks fanart by
. Why you may ask? Storytelling
Even the composition is done pretty darn well - it invites the viewer a sense of intrigue and mystery. I love how he made Sticks inspect what's possibly an abandoned/crash landed aircraft. Also I'm giving extra props for watercolor usage. Excellent job mate. *faved*
Last by not least (really this time) is
's absolutely adorable group shot of the entire gang (the good guys that is) of the Sonic Boom series!! What a way to end this once again - and hell this looks hot for the fact that she used such sophisticated traditional wet & dry media to produce this - ala Sephia ink, Copic, White pencil, & Deleter White 1. I'm so happy this came in just in the nick of time, I can also tell that she spent a lot of time on this. The group dynamics and overall structure works, there's a diverse range of expressions and what's extra special is the meaningful interactions with certain characters. Amazing. Faving this one also! *favs* FRIDAY'S BUNDLE OF STICKS! SATURDAY'S BUNDLE OF STICKS!
And that's it everyone! THANK YOU VERY MUCH to all of you who have participated in this marathon and have been good sports throughout.
Hope to do another one of these next time, it's nice to get the community involved, getting together as a collective and make something creative for the long weekend! Great job everyone, see you next time!
Oh and also... Some photos to share!!
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday everyone!! Stay safe and stay active!
