Here’s a peek at my progress on that pic of the main Sonic characters being awesome.
(On second thought, Tails is awesome now, too. I ought to put him in, except it’d mess up my composition.)
Anyway, it took me two hours to ink the characters, which means tracing over all the sketches with hard black lines.
Then I just flood-fill them with their basic colors. Looks like a coloring book right now, doesn’t it? Just wait until it’s shaded. It’ll have dimension then. But for now, you can see what my Sonic art looks like before I’ve put in the cool shadings and backgrounds. Pretty unremarkable.
