Couple's Night by glitcher Couple's Night by glitcher
Huge Sonic commission for :iconlazyrayfinkle: featuring... everyone! :faint:

This is an expansion of a scene from Sonic #138 where we see a lot of characters eating out at Uncle's Chuck's diner. LazyRayFinkle wanted several couples to share a night out at the diner, including a very obscure echidna-dingo couple that only appeared in Knuckles #26. :o This is an interesting choice to say the least. The idea of two individuals of rival species forming a romance has oodles of story potential behind it, but this is something that was never elaborated upon in the comics. Just one throwaway panel of this controversial pairing is all we ever got. :hmm: Anyway, this was a fun challenge trying to cram in as many characters as possible into this one scene. I even added a few extra ones to fill the composition. I enjoy playing around with character interactions in group pics like this, and the effort was well worth it. It may be a while before I draw something this complex again. ^^;


YOU CAN WATCH A PLAYBACK OF THIS PAINTING HERE.

PS. This doesn't have a fixed point in continuity, since 'good' Fiona and Shard are both present.

Well hot damn, Glitch, you've gone and amazed me yet again. I'm going to say this flat out; I freaking love this. I love how not only the sense of romantic energy and easygoing sense of community this pic gives off, but how it gives off the typical Archie-like atmosphere that the flagship series of serialization the Riverdale universe is known for.

It's like a scene from classic Archie Riverdale, but with Sonic. The colors and character shots not only feel lively but the shading and gradients feel organic like a professional still shot. The sense of depth feels a bit off with the backmost area where Amy is standing (kinda like 3D street grafitti that trick observers into thinking it's three-dimensional) but still feels right.

The different couples natural within the environment of their own separate dates and doesn't feel out of character (even with Geoffrey being so happy with Hershey that he hasn't noticed he's about to slip from Knux's burger patty.) The Lady and the Tramp reference with Antoine, Bunnie and Rotor is a nice touch (though kinda inaccurate on account of them already being married). I can imagine Rote having a deep Three Tenors-like singing voice (probs Jose Carreas' baritone if he could bellow-sing).

And clearly being an AU shot, it's not like Good!Fiona, Shard and T-Pup being in the same picture is a violation of nature for existing, so there's no need to fret over it.

Kudos to you, Glitch, you've done it yet again.

Hot dag, this is why people love you and your work. You go above and beyond. I gave you the simplest idea for a couple's night out and you turned it into a work of art. There's details in here I never even considered. No one is born with this kind of artistic vision. It has to be earned and developed and you sir, have got the chops.

There's so much going on in this one drawing, not just the details, but the colors, the lighting, the shading, I get the feeling that any minute they'll all start moving. I would be more than satisfied to see you animating a Sonic cartoon (heck, any cartoon). Whatever tools you use, you've clearly mastered them.

Just going over the comments, I was indeed harkening back to the good old days when Sonic & Sally and Tails & Fiona were items (no offense to shippers with other ideas, these just clicked with me more). I do love that people remember those times so fondly.
Though now I'm wondering if I should've paired Rotor up with someone. I'll have to keep that in mind... :D

This pic had me right until I saw Fiona. I don't know, maybe if you replaced her with Li Moon or someone. Otherwise, very good job.

I see three signs of troubles.

1. Amy Rose
2. T-Pup
3. A spilled hamburger.

Luigi: "Oh, this looks bad."

Otherwise, it's a good work of art of a social gathering.

It's pieces like this that remind me why I ever wanted to do art.  It's warm, fun, tells a story or two, and has really nice composition.  I've never taken the time to learn how to make stuff like this, but it makes me want to.

Not much for 'shipping personally, but great job cramming as many characters into this image. You did a great job on making Uncle Chuck's diner. Even the food is well detailed.

I like the subtle humor, like Knux trying to carry 2 trays, T-Pup growling at Fiona, Rotor with an accordion, Amy, ect. I even like how Julie-Su's phone has a "Hello Kitty" strap. Hehe

A very phenomenal and breathtaking drawing of the characters all having fun at Uncle Chuck's Diner! I really love the different things they are all doing! Gosh, I am just mind blown with all the tiny details you have made in this beautiful picture! How colourful this all is too! Your art style is really recognisable! You really gave the characters their own personality! Just... Wow! I am just thoroughly overwhelmed!
I really want to applaud you for your extremely hard work on this! You really deserve it! :iconclappingplz: :heart:

I always love your style and your compositions.  It's evident the amount of time that you put into your art.  It's admirable.  Plus, the SonSal fan in me is squealing.

Other than the fact that this is a fricking amazing composition down to the smallest details, three things amused me more than anything else: Knuckles' expression as he drops the food, Elias getting donked in the head by the baby and Amy sliding with with that expression on her face.

This is really fantastic!
