Ziggy, Ziggy, Ziggy. Where do i start? First of... Nah who am I kidding. This thing here is a masterpiece. Everything is colored just as it need's to be. The Shadow's, the lighting effects, everything. Also, I love how you made the sun reflect on Sonic's forehead. Now it's proved that Sonic dig's oil bath's. Shading is done great, and the overall sunrise effect gives the pic a peacefull, yet way past cool atmosphere. The only thing bugging me, is the mountain in the background since it looks just too... simple. But i guess we have to screw Spaz for that. (no offense Spaz!) Overall great Picture. keep up the good work man.
When I saw the original inks, I was both shocked and happy at the same time..now? Now this is a beautiful masterpiece! Patrick Spaziante's inks come to life in vivid color! The color choices are accurate and well shaded. The shading is stupendous and the epic range of colors brings out the three hedgehogs full of rainbow charmed charisma like the show once did. Th environment is colored to to a point where the viewer feels like he or she feels the impact in the characters' point of view. Nothing is wrong about this masterpiece at all and above all, a smashing and very dashing work of art that would certainly send Sonic, well, underground! An amazing piece, indeed!
For some reason, my computer is not let letting me write a critique so I'll do it in comment-form.
This is just fantastic! First of all I DO have a question regarding the comic -- another comment insinuated that this issue has not yet come out -- is that true? I hope it is as I started getting back into the Sonic comics with the Mega Man crossover (the last issues I have are before the 200th though I believe I might have picked the 200th issue up because of it being 200 haha -- obviously of the main Archie Sonic comic) but anyway -- I never got the Sonic Universe comics but for some reason, I've been super into Sonic again lately (to the point that I'm preparing to purchase all of the Sonic Archives in order to get ALL the issues in some form) and I would like to get this issue. Whew! Anyway, any info would be appreciated.
Now on to my critique that isn't an "official" critique:
I am in love with the coloring you did for this piece. Everything about it just makes Spaz' art pop. Beautiful. The shine in Sonia's hair, the light shining on Sonic's forehead, and the colors you chose are perfect for the triplets. The way you did the lighting really makes the shadows behind them make sense -- like there's this powerful light source shining toward them. I'm not sure if anyone else has picked up on this but I love the eye colors you chose -- each the color of a different sibling...
Sonic's Eyes: Green like Manic Sonia's Eyes: Blue like Sonic Manic's Eyes: Magenta/Pink like Sonia
That was really clever, using the already existing eye color of Sonic (green) in order to make a nice pattern with their eyes. I really appreciate small details like that. Such a great piece!
