I’ve been tinkering with this tonight.
It’s more or less the way I want it. Now I just have to fine tune the details and the values. I’m starting to not be able to see it anymore, so I’m letting it rest for a while. Kind of like editing a book to death. You just have to take a break sometimes.

So I fished about for something Sonicy to draw that would make me sit up straighter. A bit of conflict! That’s the ticket! Also listening to a nice version of Ave Maria made me think of Shadow. (Maria’s the little girl who was basically his sister, who got murdered. Shadow’s never gotten over it.)
