The problem is it's a flat gradient, rather than some sort of actual attempt at shading. Otherwise it looks fantastic. I was going to have a hand at it myself, but there's really no point in trying to improve that one.

But you can improve the shading, after all, I uploaded flat-gradient for that... I suck at manual shading, so, you know xD

The only thing I shaded is ...Tail's body, if you look at the "orange fur" ... some manual gradient shading is there.

How about a computerzied pencil-sketched version? Would that look good?

I was thinking something like that, but no computerized, would somebody draw it?

So why exactly is it that Tails can't turn Super without the Super Emeralds?

Thing is, if we ignore S3&K (Specifically the whole Super Emeralds thing which was never mentioned after the cluster-fuck bodging that was what SHOULD have been 1 whole game), only hedgehogs have ever GONE Super.

The sole exception is Blaze, who's from another dimension anyway...

EDIT: And didn;t she use the Sol Emeralds to do so?

Sonic and Knuckles (alone) would like to have a word with you.


Also, I'd like to say that I disagree with the brown shading in Tails's eyes. Last I checked, it was always bluish.

Please render it in clean vector format and upload it onto the Database! :(

Everyone willing to remaster different versions of this, please post your new experiments in the Concept Art / Muckup Topic! ^^[/quote]

Sorry, I'm not around quite as often anymore. Should I draw the other frames for you guys to vectorize? /grabs tablet

I really don't think the ending pics should be done as vectors. They should be painted or hand-drawn.

Yes, your drawings are without any doubt the best ones we received up to now.

Please complete the resting ones! :(

I think the ending illustrations should be handmade.
They are imitating brush strokes and probably are going too look a bit strange in vector form.

Have got up off my lazy ass and updated my monitor art to no longer have 'stepped' shading, to match the new improved shading style for characters and objects. = ) Changes include new shading on both the broken and unbroken monitor, new borders for the monitor icons, an improved shield icon and my own attempt at a Speed Shoes icon (with and without a strap).

Posted Image

As always, comments and criticisms are appreciated; I want to be able to achieve the same high standard of work as the other contributors have been making. = )

Apologies if this is the wrong topic for this, BTW; since the monitor art I did is already in the opening post, I assumed posting this version in the approved topic was OK. If not, please could a mod move this to the appropriate topic?

Looking good. Also, maybe for a nice extra, you could add a small shine on the screen, to make it look like the window is glass.

Thanks for your nice contribution McAleeCh,

You posted it on the right section, as it was APPROVED time ago.

Now there are no more visible color steps which adds more definition to the overall result, very nice! :colbert:


P.s. Don't forget to upload the original source file for it! (Send me the upload link via PMS)

The monitor base has already been approved, yes. Glad to see you're taking it further for the new HD treatment! A few of the monitor icons have already been revamped, so you may want to check out the latest updates on the speed shoes if you're looking to continue work on that piece. I have to agree with the glass suggestion, sounds like it could be a great touch.
