Sonic the Hedgehog by supersonikku Sonic the Hedgehog by supersonikku
Looks a lot better enlarged! Clickit!
I've recently starting dabbling with watercolours to see if I have any talent at anything, so here's a painting of Sonic done with watercolour paint. Bit weird having a submission in my "gallery" with colour in it.
Devastatingly, the scanner managed to take out a lot of the subtle colours in the painting and leave the scan looking a bit....bland.
The skys gone completely and the water effects are pretty much non-existant.
Doesnt really matter though as I did it for myself, not really for deviantart. Thought maybe someone might like it though so added it regardless!

:wow: Wow . . . this is REALLY good! Sorry about the trouble with the scanner (I can relate) , but this is still really beautiful. :nod: The shading is very well done. How long did it take you to do this?

Each of the watercolours took a few hours, I have no idea how many exactly because once I get stuck into one of them, time does not exist!
All 3 are hanging nicely framed in my living room now though, pretty swish.

That's pretty sweet, all right! =D And I know what you mean with the time thing . . . Art class always seems to go the fastest out of any other class in school for me! ^^;

I recommend you buy it, it's awesome. However, I don't know why Sega didn't make it like Sonic unleashed. That game has a lot better gameplay!

This is great, even if the scanner did leave out a few things! And trust me, I know the feeling, the same thing happens to all my works. :cries:

Its horrible when technology butchers your work! I sort of hope its because my scanner is 5 years old and if i bought a new one i wouldnt have this problem!

Actually, I think it's the opposite. I've heard from a friend that scanners nowadays aren't as good as they used to be, and I've always had problems with my mom's newer scanner while I prefer to use one that we've had for like 6 or 7 years! But yeah, technology can't do your work justice unless you have some kind of crazy high-tech scanner that only billionaires can buy. :(

You dont say! Well that sucks. If only Bill Gates had a deviantart, we could see if this scanner exists...
