Just had some awesome dinner and I've read up on your feedback. Thanks everyone for sharing your thoughts, and I'm happy to have provided my positive perspectives on Sonic Boom - optimism is a good thing to have in life, give it a go where you can!
Also, shoutout to :iconHappyAggro: for handing me this link on a quick summary of what's legit on the whole franchise as well as link to the latest updates of Sonic Boom when they come.
And oh my god, I felt like a kid all over again when I saw these!
Seriously THIS kind of stuff, concept artwork, was the main reason why I got myself a pencil and a paper on that very day (when I turned on my brother's SEGA SATURN to play SONIC JAM)

That sketch of Marine on the parcel was a nice touch - she made it to Australia! Strewth mate!
Been meaning to share this with you all after the success of creating a dedicated graphic novel for Mr. Yardley last year. The book was made as a way of saying thanks for his many incredible years of input to the Sonic Archie comic series. He thanked me personally and would like to let you know, of those who have contributed towards the project, how amazing and humbling it was to see your artwork in the book as well as the quotes and words of encouragement you've shared with him

The lineart for :iconchicago-pd-stars:'s commission is complete! Adding the details was fun and calculative - reference photos of fun fairs really helped!
I just finished penciling the outlines to focal point's Tails and Wave. Then it was off to the scanner. This was what was scanned and edited in digital format!
I'm still thinking of whether to render in graphite or in digital color... Both options have their own set of pros and cons but I think it'll be worth the investment to colour this... Let's see how I go!

To know that I can make something this good in three weeks, I gotta say I'm proud. This is what graphic designers do or a production artist if you were to work at Archie comics, hell I even played the role of an editor for pete's sake. lol
I want to thank all the people who contributed to this special project once again, and they include:
Great Advice to Writers (from David Lillie) Great Advice to Writers (from David Lillie)Great Advice to Writers (from David Lillie)4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I recently posted an article about great advice to artists who plan to tackle the creative media industries by Joe Madureira. Now I want to share with you yet another excellent article that concerns storytelling critique - who are these people who do give you critique and how can you tell whether it's good or bad , story telling tools commonly use by writers - what are these tools and is there a right or wrong way to using them?
David Lillie is the creator of the Dreamkeepers series, a successful self-publisher, writer, illustrator, and someone who advocates good story telling. His advice on the subject continues to be an inspiration but he'll take that one step further with this article he just recently posted on his blog. Go check it out.

I couldn't stand having that 'cover' hanging in my front page for another day! So I bring you something completely opposite to what's bad in the arts/creative entertainment industry - something good and positive! Professional advice to be more precise but this guy named Joe Madureira (some of you will instantly recognise his art style in Marvel comics) knows what he's talking about, and he's one of the many hundreds of professional/commercial comic illustrators out there who are in the same boat. But what I like about Joe is that he's been very successful in his career, and after years of observation and feedback from aspiring artists he has decided to share some advice.
"But Elson, this is pretty much the same as any other professional artist who give the same kind of adv

Disney at Hogwarts: A Crossover of MadnessMy next project! (I never do things in small steps, do I?)Disney at Hogwarts: A Crossover of Madness5 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is all for fun. Can you imagine if all Disney characters went to one high school?! There'd be so much heroics and derring-do, no work would ever get done! Can you imagine if they all went to one of the most famous schools in literature!?!? CAN YOU!?!??!
I thought it would be amazing to draw each of the characters in the house that we mostly agreed that they would fit in. Something I had had a vague idea about already; this just gave me purpose! Now that I have my tablet, I'm ready to get going! I've already sketched& scanned the characters out, just need to do lines and color. It takes me the good part of a day to finish one character, but I'll try to not keep everyone waiting too long.
I knew I had to limit myself with the number of characters, but I also wanted to get a good grouping from each house. I'm only doing human characters (wait for it...) that are younger than thirty (we're fudging their ages a bit

OH MY GOD!!! ;___________;
Read my comment on his video - it's another one of TEE LOPE's AMAZING Sonic remixes/compositions reinterpreted.
For those who missed out on this piece of factoid about me - Museum Theme from Sonic Jam (essentially the SEGA remixed version of Data Select Screen from Sonic 3) was the song that got me into drawing Sonic when I was a kid! That and the concept art that came with the game.
Pick Dem' Hands!
Picking the right hand gesture can be a challenge. I wanted my client's main character, Sel (the lovely vixen with the sword), to be at the forefront of the illustration and dominate with her posture, expression and hand gesture. More importantly we need to be able to communicate with what those hands may mean.

And so begins the next commission piece - and this one's a massive one.
A full blown illustration on an A3 sized 225gsm Card-stock Paper, much like this one that I illustrated commissioned by :iconkafelnikov:
My next project is a scene that was envisioned by the creator :iconCHICAGO-PD-STARS: for his Sonic Archie fan-fic - Fallen From Grace. The setting of a fun-fair/carnival holds roots to a fond past-time of his which makes this commission fulfilling to work on! Also do give his fan-fic a read if you haven't done so already - it's tailored especially to those who are looking for a brutally mature tone in their Sonic Archie stories.
So what have I thumb-nailed for the time-being? Well this!
Opinions on TMNT Couples (Leo/Karai in Particular)WARNING: THESE ARE MY OPINIONS AND MY OPINIONS ONLY. SORRY IF THEY GO AGAINST ANYONE'S OPINIONS.Opinions on TMNT Couples (Leo/Karai in Particular)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The 2012 nick version seems to be shipping this Leo and Karai pairing which I couldn't believe at first. Many fans support the idea of them being in a romantic relationship, and I can see why. I've watched the 2003 series a while back and I know about Leo and Karai's unusual relationship. I was hoping that they would eventually become allies or friends. But NEVER could I ever imagined them being a romantic couple. The episode, "New Girl in Town" completely baffled me. Now....if you support this pairing....okay. Nick seems to support it too. This is my opinion. And you have the right to your opinion too. There's nothing wrong supporting it, just like there's nothing wrong with me not supporting it. These are my opinions like I've said before.
Ummmmm...yeah these reasons are actually ones that have probably NEVER crossed your mind. I overthink things. Leo and Karai supporters are most likely
Writing Stories, it's FRUSTRATING.I can't believe that spent the whole night researching on themes, settings and ideas and came up with nothing concrete.Writing Stories, it's FRUSTRATING.6 months ago in Personal More Like This
It's frustrating when that happens and I'm sure many of you who are writing stories will find yourself in the this situation from time to time.
I think I'm just overthinking about the story I want to write for Ashworth, hence it can lead me to endless possibilities and not sticking with just one idea.
Here's an example: Just who is Ashworth and what is his goal?
i) He's a king of the Wombat Clan, he's done gruesome things to the innocent bringing tyranny to towns and villages around the nation. However one day he was betrayed by his own clan and was disposed of, presumed dead. He survives a presumed death, comes back with a refreshed perspective on life - perhaps looking for redemption for the bad things he's done. With a change of heart will he go back to his clan in a double act of revenge and put an end to their terrorism or will he attempt a

Um not actually a 100% sure how I feel about this.
Like the designs aren't horrible, and would be ok for like a side series alternate time line sort of thing. Tails and Amy actually don't look half bad, they more or less look like them selves but in different costumes.
Sonic, Knuckles and I think Eggman are the only ones i have some issues with. from what I saw of Eggman was that he wasn't fat any more, when his egg shape is where he gets is name from. With Sonic, he just looks too long or some thing, and yeah he looks weird with blue arms, it also doesn't make sense why Sonic and Amy would have different fur patterns even though they are the same species. I think my issues with Knuckles is the same allot of people have, hes just really out of proportion, and why dose he have fingers that's my biggest pet-peeve about his design. When I first saw the characters there where in 3D and the first thought i had was "Did

And here we are! Two Sonic Comic Dramas within the month! I'm on fire baby!
Chaotix Quest like I said is one my personal favourites in the SONIC UNIVERSE arcs Pre-SGW (i.e. Pre-SuperGenesisWave). It's got an involving story about family, interesting antagonists, and friendship. Team Ian and Tracey predominantly did an incredible job with all four issues and I give my applause to their masterful and creative input into some of the best stories that the Sonic Archie comics had to offer - it was a lot of fun, it had action, drama, and a lasting impact on fans of the Chaotix and their adventures in the series.
Also this would be one my most emotional performances in a Sonic comic drama and I'm super pleased with the results.
Special thanks to Tasha for her contributions to Charmy and Matilda. And I wish The StarPost Productions team all the very best in completing their ambitious FULL CHAOTIX QUEST

Help Me Get Back On RAT RAGE With Patreon! UPDATE!Help Me Get Back On RAT RAGE With Patreon! UPDATE!11 months ago in Personal More Like This
UPDATE: So far we're at 13 people jumping on board for this! You guys are awesome! A few people have messaged me and are quite confused about how it works and the way I have this set up though, so I can explain a bit more:
The way Patreon works is that you pledge per upload or per month (in my case, per upload). So if you subscribe to paying $1 per webcomic page upload, and if I upload 4 pages a month, you're paying $4 a month. If you subscribe at the higher tier at $5 with the extra goodies/content, you pay $20 per month. I think many would just like to read at the entry-level tier, and hopefully, a dollar isn't too much. You can also set a monthly spending limit on your Patreon account so you don't end up spending more than you can afford.
I've always had a bit of anxiety with Rat Rage; considering that it's anthro, I know it will not mesh well with a lot of people. But I will never cross that "weird side" since it's anthro. I'm just no

Comic Vine has the latest released solicits from Archie Comics, and December is on course to be a huge month for Sonic comic fans. There’s not one, not two, but six comics, magazines and books to be on the lookout for! To kick things in grand fashion, Sonic the Hedgehog #268 sees Sonic enter a fighting tournament to nab another Chaos Emerald for the quest. The line-up is bound to be full of familiar favourites, and there’s even the Fighter Vipers reference Honey the Cat in it to win. On top of that, the variant brings in one Breezie the Hedgehog (Robot), not seen since her appearance in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog! All this excitement is in “Champions”: part 1.
