Ice Cream - Sonic Comic.

By taeshilh
(Couldn't think of a better title, durpawurp)

I actually had this comic sketched out when I finished the first Bittersweet summer comic.. so this has remained in my drawer since 2007. It's only just now that I just sat down and decided to ink and colour it.

The ice cream trucks in America are awesome because during the time I was in New Jersey, I got to order a Sonic ice cream each time! So I thought it would be interesting if Sonic himself had his own ice cream. He's throwing his away in the first panel, holding the one meant to Amy.

Sixth panel was depressing experimentation, I wanted to see if I could do a fuzzy memory effect.. it looks sloppy and blurred now "XD;" Whoops.

Sonic's hand in panel seven is the worst ever, you could break your wrist that way. And christ my ruler failed it with the vertical lines.

When I first saw this (Like, 6 months ago), I fell on my butt laughing. I absolutley love the way you drew this, as it is very clear, very easy to read, and has a simple, hilarious one-page plot. Like I said earlier, this has a very good plot, as it landed itself a place in my faves. My only complaint would be the last panel, in which I think that Amy/Tails could have been a bit better drawn, and the fact that Sonic had skin eye lids and green eyes, which does not really appeal to me, but that's just me I guess!

OK, so first off, I like the coloring scheme you used in this. I also like the way you made the backgrounds. The characters look accurate and you can really tell who's who. Even though this was done with colored pencils, it looks really neat and well done. I don't favor colored pencils though, but this is still good! I like the way you shaded the drawings. It looks really nice. I also like the dust cloud you made in the last panel. However, I think that it shouldn't look too much like splashing water. I suggest making light, curved strokes with the same color as the dust to make dust clouds. Also, I think that to make a fuzzy memory scene, you should make colors lighter than usual. In some cases, I suggest making the outline the same color as the inside color of the object. And you should also try blurring it only just a bit. Other than that, I really like the comic! Nicely done! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=";)" title=";) (Wink)"/>

LINEART: Inking / outlining the whole thing was definitely a smart move. It's practically a requirement if you're going to color it. There is one thing I note, in the last panel, where Sonic is running away. The lineart looks slightly thicker and less clean there. I can't tell if that was the way you had outlined it, or whether it was originally smaller and you decided to enlarge it slightly.

COLORING: I think coloring makes a big difference to this picture, and helps get its point across better. I like the way you blended the shading, especially on Sonic's flesh tones. It reminds me of...something I can't quite put my finger on. But it looks good. I also note how the backgrounds of each panel change, starting with blue and then going to green for that reminiscent part, then yellow and orange for the parts that involve Amy. I don't know whether you were going for symbolism with that, but it seems to divide the comic into different parts, especially when viewing it from a distance.

COMIC: I have seen a few comics done about Sonic-themed frozen novelties before. However, I can't say I've ever seen it presented in quite this manner, so I do give you points on originality for that. It's nice to see that Sonic can be nice to Amy, when he wants to be. I can't help but crack up on the third-to-last panel, where Amy's eyes go wide. Just the mouth part of the ice pop is gone, as if she was trying to suck face with the Sonic pop, and it makes the Sonic pop, with its beady eyes, seem to say "GET ME OUTTA HERE! <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":noes:" title="Noes! - :noes:"/>" I don't blame the real Sonic for not wanting to be around Amy in that case. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":XD:" title="XD - :XD:"/>

I like your panel structure... And the backgrounds... Amy is so cute, especially in the last two panels. Sonic and Tails expressions are lol. The part where Amy's bothering Sonic is really cute. So are all the hearts. I like all the blue ice cream on her mouth and the way her eyes are all liquidy in the last panel. Your coloring is really good. It looks like you did it on a computer or something. It's random... But I like the gray dust where Sonic is running away. Tails is really cute sticking his tongue out in the first panel. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" /><img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" /><img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)" />

This reminds me of when I was little: watching sonic x and eating sonic ice cream from the ice cream truck. Great comic, by the way. The coloring and facial expressions are almost perfect.
