I was doing some doodles in flash using :iconnasakii:'s "Sketch in Flash" Tutorial: <da:thumb id="278060033"> (seriously, you should check it out).  I was doing this because unlike most sane people, I like to ink my drawings in flash for some stupid reason (read: never learned to steady my hands! THANK YOU FLASH FOR CORRECTING FOR ME), and if I could consolidate all the steps (sketching is usually either done in sketchbook pro (duh) or photoshop) in one program, why not?

 The sketch was cool, but rude, so I decided to ink it and use a grayscale background to make picking out highlights easier. And then I figured that "just" the figure in space was boring, but didn't want to go to the effort of making an actual background, so I replicated those distinctive level intros of the Sonic the Hedgehog games.

I hope you like it! I know I did, which means you can expect to see my gallery (barring commissions, unless requested) fill up with these doodles! ...or not, since I just jinxed it. What do you think? Drop a comment and let me know!

Haha, thanks! Actually, most of my gallery is done in Flash. The only things that aren't are usually sketches.  I hope you like!
