    Man if thats all he see's let that be all he see's, he's far better off with life not to be exposed to the horrors of the internet we have seen

    Although all I will say, purely and I mean *PURELY* from an artistic standpoint, that rain is far too viscous, for the sake of innocence, it looks like someone has gotten a car jetwash full of wallpaper paste and just sprayed away.

    I didn't even think of that when I posted that cover here. :psyduck:

    On my butt in front of the computer. Where else?
    I'm working on working up the willpower to work on learning how to make my own Sonic fangames. Not quite there yet.
    That it's white doesn't help, but mostly it's the "goopy" look it has. I realize it's just supposed to look like it's splattered on his face, but I've been out in heavy rain before. Water doesn't look like that, never mind the color.

    The edit there is more like it, although water in Sonic's eye is still weird—if he had water in his eye, why would his eye be wide open, rather than reflexively blinking to clear his vision?

    Hey it could be a straight porno, and Sonic just so happened to push the lead female role out of the way at the wrong time.


    ...It's possible.

    Who's to say that that liquid is necessarily coming from a guy?

    That raises a whole new set of questions. Questions like why would Sonic do this? And how many people are involved (as I said before, that looks like a lot more than a single person produces)? Did Archie really think this cover was a good idea?
     
  11. Y'know what? I thought the same thing while doing flats for that cover. I messaged my friend and just said "THIS COVER IS EXPLOITABLE"

    Hey! That's not the only possible explanation. Given the quantities of fluid involved, it is, in fact, much more plausible that a glue factory simply exploded.

    Can't wait for all the jizz related post to be trashed and the topic be called "ITT everyone's a faggot" or something

    xD Both covers made me laugh so fucking hard. This is great. + - Also guys, you're all wrong. It's both Jizz and Rain, Archie has that power.   :v:

    Wait, so you were the one to colour the flats for the rain as white? Oh you troll you.

    That would look more like water.

    And this, friends, clinches it. If the STAFF know it's spunk, then we know it was done on purpose. ;P

    Also, with regards to the above comment about me not having a sense of humour - I do, I just fail to see what's hilarious about a six year old child-like rabbit riding a motorcycle - it's STUPID, not funny. Playing CARD GAMES ON TIME TRAVELLING MOTORCYCLES, THAT breaks beyond stupid into funny. =P

    1) It's self-depreciative humor; by giving cream "attitude" in the picture, they're making fun of ShTH.
    2) It's unexpected. You see the black arms motorcycle and you expect shadow, and instead, you look up and see a six year old child-like rabbit with ridiculously huge shades on riding it.
    3) Shadow's expression accurately portays the first thing everyone thinks when they see it. By mirroring the reader's reaction, it connects with the reader.
