Ash, Ruby and Fei by ElsonWong Ash, Ruby and Fei by ElsonWong
I missed drawing these guys (and girl, of course!). :aww:


But yeah I wanted to try and see how I would do using SAI to draw and paint the characters I created from the days of old.

The concept I had in mind - well it's pretty much this:

"What would their reaction be when they are surrounded by the enemy?"


Hope to draw more stuff soon, but for now it's back to working on the SONIC UNIVERSE Animated Adaptation Act 3 project. 8-)

there they are! I was wondering when you'd draw them again
so.. is the grand hunter series now officially cancelled? 'cause I really liked that comic.. it got me into reading manga :P
tales of the cursed wombat sounded good though, Id love to see more of it :D

Oh yeah! Ruby looks ready to kick butt! I like the way she looks here...More tough and independent! And yay! It's Fei again! 8D Fei always had such a cool personality. =) And Ashworth and his new evil scarf! XD

Ruby looks very serious and sophisticated, that is cool
And Fei, so awesome, i like that, i wonder what outfit does he wear this time

The colors and lighting effects are two of the biggest strengths of this piece. I really like the attention to detail that was given to their faces and eyes.

There was one crit I have. On that closeup of the eye in the bottom left panel, I think the lighting effect is too bright and should be toned down a bit. It distracts from the eye itself.

I remember Grand Hunter from a while back. :D But my memory is so bad, I forgot a little about it. I should go and read it once again when I have time :aww:
Have to say.. Love how you're using SAI for your works now. They seem to be more watercolor looking :dummy: Were you using the watercolor brush?
Either way, great job! ^^ I always loved the sketchy lines you'd put, almost for like shading :)

Yes indeed I did use the Watercolour brush - seriously that brush is doing some pretty amazing things that Photoshop cannot do.

Working on that drawing of Ash, Ruby and Fei was more of an experiment really - I wanted to see what else SAI has to offer - I've lots more to learn from it and I'm sure there will be new tools just waiting to be discovered. ;)

Thanks for the feedback as always and take your time ready the comic - remind me to get a book for you when I come over for a visit over the Summer this year... (you don't have one yet right? ^^).

It almost feels like a real watercolor brush :XD: but.. A whole lot easier to handle.

:) That's great then, to explore the program even more. I'm still looking around as well.. I haven't touched Open Canvas since I got on SAI, and my art looks so dramatically different now XDD I guess you are right when art can be so different depending on the tools, this is much like traditional art to me :)

No problem ^^ :hug: I will try to find some free time when I'm out of school maybe :)
Sure! Oh? You're going to come visit here this summer :D Sweet! We shall go to the giant mall here *shot* and I don't have one yet, I haven't had time to read the comic at all ;_;

Yeah man I read up on Edmonton and you guys have a frickin' huge mall! XXD

I'm in the process of checking out how I'm planning for my trip and adding Edmonton into the itinary is presenting quite a challenge atm! XD Btw I'll be attending Summer of Sonic (the news has just been confirmed [link]) and hopefully Sonic Boom when I'm visiting Canada/North America.

We'll see how things go Blaze...! = ) :hug:

It's huge :XD: But I know that mall by memory now. Though I get lost when trying to find shops :lol: 800 stores is hard to memorize, even after the many years I've lived here. >:3 Even the indoor amusement park would be fun to check out.

Wow.. You're really busy with your travels! Makes me wish I could attend Summer of Sonic still. I've heard of it for a while now. :dummy: Maybe in the future I'll be able to go, and that's pretty awesome! Well whenever you decide to think of coming into Edmonton, you'll have to tell me so we can arrange it with my parents. It's a first I ever meet up with someone from online, but I'm sure there shouldn't be a problem.. I hope :XD:

Despite me not knowing about these three characters, I could see some major changes in comparison with the previous appearances, such as their facial expressions. Haven't seen them in months.

Man, Elson, I missed them too! I've been thinking about them since your recent journal entry (on DK) and I seriously considered asking you when you were going to get back to Cursed Wombat - but I didn't because I figured you would have gotten annoyed about it. Plus, I don't think the hiatus has reached the one-year mark yet XD

It's good to see these fellows again. I look forward to seeing more entries in the future.

Thanks for asking! I don't know... I'm feeling that comics ain't the way to go for me anymore, I just don't have the creative energy to create a story... I've realised that you need LOADS of imagination and creative effort to make a story work.

I may JUST be able to pull of a story short at max nowadays even if it's a fan story of the Sonic series. So yeah original works are hard to master but very rewarding when you get it right. ;)

I hope to draw more concepts and ideas of my past comic works. ^^

I just felt like giving Ashworth a different look now... :) I do really miss his fun side but maybe that's what will make me feel challenged the next time I draw him - to show a fun side to the already serious nature that he has right now in TALES OF THE CURSED WOMBAT. ^^

Glad to know that Ruby caught your attention there! 8-)

I like Ash's anatomy there. o3o Seems a bit different from the last pic though. :3 Also I don't think I ever saw Ruby so serious. XD Might have been but she looks really serious here.
Huu, really curious how Fei would look like in this style. l3 I mean, anatomy vise. I've been practicing with anthro birds as well, here are some~ [link] Might give it a shot with Ruby. :3
