I guess Eggman/Robotnik himself isn't classed as "Character Art" then? I mean, when I think of "Badniks and bosses", I just think of the machines, rather than Eggman himself (but I suppose the sub-explanation is it's "enemy art" rather than a 'character').
Anyway, the chicken's turned out very nice
Although is it just me, or do the shadows have a tint of purple to it? Zooming in, it would seem like it - just wondering why really?

Well a couple of reasons (it's kind of in the official art). Neither of which might be the "right" reason! When I was originally drawing over the old chicken on the green background, if I just went straight from purple to green (and there does need to be shading there I think - for the cheek), it was quite hard to see where the background ended and the chicken began. And because the cheek is quite an important part of the whole shape and character, I thought I'd better find some way to bring it out more. So I added the highlight. It also helped me to "round" out the cheek a bit.
I don't quite get this. How would making the shadows gray (if that's what you're talking about) affect how it blends in to the background? I'm not even sure if I'm making any sense myself!
