Hello, everyone. Today, I am going to give my observations on my all-time favorite fictional villain: Everyone's favorite robot doppelganger, Metal Sonic.
First, a bit of history, for those of you who might not know who he is. Though, this being the Sonic News Network, that's not likely to be a problem... I'll say it all anyway.
Metal Sonic is a character introduced to the Sonic the Hedgehog universe in 1993 by way of a classic Sega CD video game called Sonic CD. This game is considered by many to be the best Sonic the Hedgehog game ever made, with others give that crown to other titles made in that same era of Sonic the Hedgehog history, namely Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (& Knuckles), Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and for some, even the very first Sonic the Hedgehog…Read more >
Okay, so recently I've gotten into computer art. Right now, as I write this, I'm trying to draw one of the characters in the Jezz of Time fiction.
There's one problem, the program I use is GIMP, and as far as I can tell, it doesn't have a tool for making circles, or even elipses.

Is there a program out there that has the best of both worlds, as it were?Read more >
For the uninformed, SRB2 refers to Sonic Robo Blast 2. It is a fan-made game developed by a group called Sonic Team Junior. It is built on a modified Doom Engine, and mostly plays like a real Sonic game, barring the lack of real slopes and loops. The game takes elements from the Adventure, Classic, and Modern Eras, with momentum-based gameplay returning, along with transitions between Adventure-style 3D gameplay and Classic-style 2D gameplay. The game is also very playable over the internet, with various game modes specifically made for multiplayer play, including a Co-Op version of the single-player levels. The official website is here, and it is there where you can download the latest version. The game is still under construction, so you…Read more >
OK, so I decided to work on drawing Sonic characters again, after a few months of inactivity from drawing anything at all (took a break from that to do that map of Aerolatus for Kagimizu). This is what I came up with.
Now, keep in mind, I'm not very good at drawing Sonic characters. Nowhere near as good as a good number of artists here. Heck, their work just blows mine right out of the water!
So, I want you guys to have a look at this picture I drew. Is there anything I should focus on improving? Do you have any tips on how to improve? Any "how-to's" with pictures I could follow?
Thanks! -- AkamiaRead more >
