well then Knuckels, the first of my four Sonic models, is done and i'm really happy about it
after i finished the head i wasn't really in the mood to continue i just hate it to build the head at first i don't know, for me the model comes to the end first, until i build the head but this time i had to build all the other stuff after and i took myself very hard
if you are in papercraft and follow some blogs, you may know that there is an allready exist model of Knuckels so you may ask why i'm build an other one ? i don't wanna blame/harm juke here by telling some things but i have my reasons i had this model on my computer for over a year and actually i was really happy that he build this model as first so i thought i don't have to do it on my own but there are some things what i don't like in papercraft general, what this model includes
so i build it on my own again
i'll not explain what it is all i can say is to all new designer out there do yourself and the other papercrafters a favour and build your models first on your own remove the issues and failures AND THEN release them
i made that mistake one time and i still regret it
now then to the model
the model is not easy if i had to count it i would rate it 7 out of 10 so don't underestimate it
build the head, legs, feet, hands and arms seperately and combine them later otherwise you will have some huge weight and handling problems
basically it stands without any weight in the legs but i prefere to put some into the front of the feet
About Knuckles postcard from Summer of Sonic 2012!
Description Summer of Sonic is over now, so I can upload all the art I made in preparation for the event!
Next up is Knuckles. If you were an SoS attendee, you may recognise this from my art table as one of the available postcards I had on display! And if so, I hope you were able to grab one of them! There were 8 postcards available in total, 7 of which contained new art.
This is the first piece of art I did for SoS, a few months back now. I'm fairly pleased with it overall.
What did I use? Adobe Photoshop CS6 Beta and Adobe Illustrator CS4
Sonic the Hedgehog and all related items(c) SEGA/Sonic Team Art(c)=TheGatestormer
Yea Knux, im talkin to you! whatcha gonna do about it?!
anyway, i was thinkin of what Knux would be like if he was in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. i figured since the characters were younger back then(Sonic bein about 11yrs old and Tails bein 4) that would also make Knuckles act a bit of a little kid too. This would probably cause him to get even angrier over the smallest things he doesnt like.
