Sandopolis Zone by NextGrandcross Sandopolis Zone by NextGrandcross
WARNING: Download Image is extremly large.

This is the BIGGEST piece I ever did, so big that I had to use baseline standard just to save the image.

Anyway, pic of my favorite Zone from Sonic 3 & Knuckles, simply cause I like desert stages in any game I play. However I do despise those accursed Skorps badniks here.
I added the Death Egg and Lava Reef Volcano at the last minute.

Anyway, lot's of fun with coloring, and I was occupied by listening to Sonic Colors Music: Planet Wisp Act 1:[link]

Such a beautiful song, you don't here a piano in too many Sonic Music do ya?

I wish i could draw like you, man. Ever since I got sick, I just lost my desire to draw just faded away and then I just got so outta practice, I suck now.

Wow, this is amazing. There's a lot happening here. I like it. This zone is okay with me. It feels a little slow to play through (unless you are Super/Hyper Sonic/Tails/Knuckles).

Nice work. I too listen to Sonic music while doing art. :D

This is really unbelievable! You must have taken your time to get it this awesome and realistic! I love the scenery, the shadings and the characters' poses, especially Sonic's!
There are a few Sonic songs that have a piano playing. I would love to make a listing of the songs with the piano from different Sonic games for you! =D

Even when drawn...

THIS STAGE STILL LOOKS LIKE THE DEFINITION OF HEAT STROKE.

This stage always drained my time limit:

Best time? -- 5:30 xwx;

Well, Angel Island was inhabited by Echidna's in the past, so I thought, they own the island, they put their faces on statues.

A good music track aids well in drawing, and the Planet Wisp music is particularly soothing to the ears, makes you want to fall asleep.
