...run Shade run :P

I haven't drawn him for a while, so here's a simple boring pic of Phoenix (aka Shade) running. Don't know where he's running or why, or indeed why he's running in a white nothingness. He just is. Perhaps he's chasing Scourge from Archie who has a frighteningly similar outfit. Although I appear to have accidentally changed his boots again (read: drew them wrong)
Late night doodle, one of the those times when it's midnight and you need to be in bed but want to draw anyway, and know there's no point doing a comic page because your tired brain will only get it wrong. Threw some marker pens and stuff at it this morning because I'm still in a traditional art kind of mood.

Scanner messed up the colours again, though. He's golden brown, not ginger. :/

Don't steal the fanchar, please.

The 4693052962895489174086555434567896534567890FC called Shade, and his name doesn't fit him at all.

Somehow, when this appeared on my screensaver (best way to go through all these images!), first thing that came to my mind....

He looks like he's the child of Sonic and Sally Acorn oO

His furcolor reminded me of Sally, while him being a hedgehog - I assume I'm not horribly mistaken - wearing a blue jacket (Sally wears a blue jacket[?] too), plus the shoes and the running pose reminds me of Sonic.

So... yeah ^^

You capture the spirit of the whole Sonic universe in your work. I'm deeply moved by its quality and its attachment to Sonic fandom.

Wow, gorgeous action pose there!

I really like the colours, although you say the scanner messed the brown up, I think they really suit. I love the fact he looks just a little furry too. Traditional too, awesome skills. Great job! Going to have to +Fave this ^^

I take it he's running after the guy that swiped his other shoe, yes? XD
Maybe Scourge did that just to be a bastard?

I like the way you draw Hedgehogs - they're not Sonic-styled, yet they feel like they completely belong in the Fleetway world. Damnit I miss that comic so much. At least they knew when to quit...

Must take a shot of enveloping Shade in my style. Hmm. May take a shot at that today when we pick up our nearly-departed car from the petrol station (Haha, watch the last remnants of fandom in me struggle to stay alive!)

I think it looks good. Even if the scanner messed it up (Colourwise)

Also, it's a great motion pic

I like the running ball of fluff XD The foot though kinda :? me though...sleep deprivation perhaps? Other than that, I love the coloring and highlights you've done for him. The shading as well. Did you use white paint again for the reeeeeeeally bright highlights?

Swirlything Featured By Owner May 9, 2006

X3 awesome piccy O.O >.> he looks fluffy but a good kind of fluffy, like a natural fluffy XD O.o I read another comment... X3 but I like your art, I really do, you make things look a bit more natural then what Archie comic wants to do or the games X3 Of course the games look awesome 3D and 2D O.o but your stuff looks awesome cause it looks natural and not so... human? (shrugs)

I'm not terribly sure about the feet, the back foot seems to be at an angle that suggests running whilst leaning to the side or on a slope or something, whilst the front foot says 'forward'. I dunno...just the whole bottom of his body seems to be a bit twisted. Still, about 23x better than i could do late at night, so kudos.

Shade runs fast.

The tone work on this is utterly fantastic. The light areas are absolutely perfect and the figure is brilliant as well. Only one thing, should the sole of the closest shoe be showing as much as it is?
