desperation 01 by ElsonWong desperation 01 by ElsonWong
Time to take a quick break from working on that Silver Saga animated adaptation project!


I decided to go and practice some speed painting by drawing and colouring fanart of the SONIC UNIVERSE series. I do this by doing quick sketches of scenes that I remember from the comics, then I follow it up by a finishing off the piece with colour as quickly as possible. The aim is to get the colours right. Each exercise will allow me to experiment with different colours and determining which colour set suits best for the drawing.


On this occasion I went for apple green and violet-blue complimentary colours and see how it goes. This was the result.


For those who are curious about this scene it is taken from Sonic The Hedgehog (Archie) #168 where Shadow the Hedgehog is quickly taken down by the A.D.A.M. infected Tommy Turtle.

I couldn't believe how little effort it took for A.D.A.M. to defeat the ultimate life form! LMAO!! XXD That was something I'll never forget from the series. It was done in like 2 pages or something like that. XP


Anyways I had to do a Shadow piece, everybody loves him and I'd like to thank :iconmissyuna: for her recent sketches of Shadow too... They're really cool and inspiring. ;)

wonderful as usual... the colour mixture is done cleverly... but the strang thing here is line arts... I don't know what they call it on English...^^; and I think you could draw the blood better... but it's a COOL art and inspiring soooo much!
OMG! it's strange to see Shadow was kicked up by a turtle?!!! and just 2 pages? OoO I don't know the story but you showed so well that there's no hope for shadow.

YEAH! That issue was mental :wow:! OMG it was soooo crazy! Getting every chaos emerald in the UNIVERSE to one spot using Super Shadow and The Chosen one aka Tails to summon them xD and Eggman is like O3O whut....why didnt I think of dat!? :iconwhutplz:

Yeh and A.D.A.M defeating Shadow with a Facefloor XD omg Shadow should up his game a little more ^^;

Although compared to the Silver Issue where Silver shows how easy it is to loose control of yourself was very well built up and thought out ^^ They should do more of Shadow issues in the....lol...future omg sorry for the un-nessary pun xD

I like the soft style of coloring on this. I'm a bit torn on what to say about the lines. One side is saying it's too rough and jaggy, but another side is saying "It's part of the style, so maybe it was intended". The lighting and shading effects aren't bad though.

One of the biggest strengths of this though is the scene portrayal, and I think both how Shadow is portrayed and A.D.A.M's facial expression also adds to the tense scene that is shown.

Yup it was done deliberately Kev. ;) I'm just going to rough it with a sketched finish that than the clean approach in which I've applied to the other drawings recently. ^^

Though I'm actually tempted to go clean with my next one... It's going star a green hedgehog and his gang... :D

As I recall, he plowed Shadow's face into the cement. xD To be fair, he did take Shadow off guard with the whole kidnapping the doctor thing. Still, a very cool scene, and I really like the details on A.D.A.M./Tommy Turtle.

And yet ADAM struggled to fight against Sonic (not counting when Tommy showed himself). Go figure.

Good work though. Very impressive. :nod: :+fav:

I may not understand much about the "Sonic Universe" Series, but you really know how to color a page in a matter of minutes. And I totally agree that *missyuna has amazing sketches of Shadow. Getting the colors right can be very tricky, but the blood effects & the apple-green glow really captures my attention. & Shadow taken out in 2 pages, D**N!! that is one powerful dude.

I think one of the resons Shadow was beaten so easily was b/c they needed the space for the rest of the story. Either that or Shadow's just a wimp ;)
