I was looking at Sonic art on DA, and so much of it is so poorly done. It made me want to draw Sonic and company.
So here’s Sonic and Sally spying as Silver and Blaze talk to Mephiles. Mephiles is in his creepy not-quite-Shadow disguise, and looks like a creepy puppet Shadow with no mouth. And Sally’s packing heat because girls + guns = awesome.

Wow, I saw that picture and wondered why you were stealing from my sketchbook! Except I used Tails instead of Sally, and Robotnic was in the room. Good pic, but Sally’s pose looks… a little stiff? Maybe?
And yeah, the great majority of Sonic fanart sucks. It’s quite a shame, really; makes it harder to find the good stuff.
Yeah, if I’m going to finish this pic, I need to completely rework Sally. That’s so funny that you had drawn almost this exact same thing! 🙂
The thing I notice most about Sonic fanart is that hardly anybody does backgrounds. I think I need to sketch some simple backgrounds in here as examples of real easy stuff people can do, and it really jazzes up the artwork.
