Family of aviators

This is my entry to the Tails Fan-art contest for Archie's Sonic Universe.

I wanted to change from the usual "Tails with his friends in awesome poses" stuff, so I thought about Tails' passion for planes and the idea of "old" aviators came to my mind. And instead of Sonic & co, I've added his parents.
All done on a tainted paper, inked + a few gray markers.

I love how this pic here has an old early 1900's style, kinda reminds me of Lindbergh or Earhart. Nice job!

It's pretty neat and old fashionedy! (I think that's a word). I couldn't help but feel that this picture looks familiar, like it's based off a real photograph I've seen somewhere before. Either way, it looks great!

It's so simple but it really gives me that nostalgic feel one gets when looking at an old photograph! Simple but very effective!
It's so well done! : D

I love the direction you took with this picture! Tails is by far my favourite, and this has to be the best original piece of art of him I've seen! LOVE

I like how old fasioned it looks, right down to the old comic line-shadings. :)

I like their outfits to. Nice touch keeping the eye patch for his Dad like in the Archie Sonic comics.
