StH: Enguard by NicGiraffe StH: Enguard by NicGiraffe
A birthday request for :iconmightymorphinpower4: He wanted a pic of Antoine trying to teach Sonic how to fence. So they’re not trying to kill each other, they’re just playing around. And those are wooden practice swords they both have. I have mixed feelings about how this turned out (I'm "esh" about the background and the swords, as well as how Ant came out), so I might go back and polish it up later. But hope you like it, LTC!

It's so cool! Yeah, I definitely love it! :D Man, you drew the characters so well in your style! ;) Also, it's good to see everybody's different styles, and you've got one of the coolest one's I've seen.

TBH I'm not that fond of how Sonic came out, but thanks anyways. :) And I agree, it's fun to see characters drawn in people's own personal styes!

Yeah, it is nice to see how other people like to draw characters in their own styles, which is good because it's pretty difficult to copy somebody else's style anyways! ;)

Not too bad with the saber blades although the guard could probably be made a little longer (usually they run the entire length of the hilt.)
The window also... yeah, it doesn't look all that great. I don't know how you could have done it better but it looks more like a painting then a window.

OMG wHo iz U to CRitIc me U h8ter!!192

LOL, seriously, looking over this sketch again, I'm definitely going to try and re-do this when I'm able to. I see what you mean about the guards and the window. I think the window needs more... depth or something to it. I'm going to have to use a reference or add some shading in there or something to get it to look more three-dimensional.

Thanks for the critique!

Ant looks awkward and your Sonic still needs work. I hope you don't mind this critique.

No, not at all. Is it Ant's pose that looks awkward? Because I was mainly having issues with how his head and face came out. Sonic is still kind of tricky for me to draw, but I don't suppose you can point out anything more specific about what on Sonic needs work?

Antoine doesn't really look like he is fighting. His free arm seems to be spread out for no reason.
As for Sonic, just practice on getting the SEGA look right. ;)

Thanks. It's been so long since I did this that I can't recall if I actually used a reference for Ant or just tried to work out a pose in my head.

It's rare you'd see Ant teaching Sonic something, but it can be a useful talent to show ;)

That's true. :) Y'know, I wish there was more art out there of Ant and Sonic actually being buddy-buddy for a change, especially since that currently in the comic, that's actually what they are.

Pretty much; Ant made Sonic his best man at his and Bunnie's wedding, as well as asking Sonic to be at his side when he proposed to her.

Sure, anytime. Yeah, I haven't drawn Ant in a while, but I intend on doing so soon so I can get back into the groove of drawing him again.
