A lot of times, it helps me sort out story stuff if I can sit and doodle related things.
I’d like to do “updated” pics of all the Spacetime characters, and make them look like real people. I recently found the perfect model for Xironi, so here’s a sketch.
You get the idea.
My Sonic story’s coming along nicely. But it’s brought up some ideas I need to draw. The thing I miss about writing longhand was the great doodles I could make in the margins of peoples’ faces. Or of the odd things I was writing about in that paragraph.
One thing I ran into was Mephiles. He’s this evil shadow demon thingy from the Sonic 360 game. He steals Shadow’s shadow and takes Shadow’s form, then later it turns all crystally and eeevil. Well, my version of Shadow is half robot, so I realized I had no idea how that would look on Mephiles.
I imagined all the robot bits would turn to solid crystal. I think this deserves a proper pic to explore the visual properly.
Also it’s funny to see Shadow stalking along, all badass, and have Nox trotting along beside him all like, “Hi Shadow! It’s a nice day, isn’t it? Aren’t you glad to be alive?” And Shadow’s all like, “No. Shut up.”
