The Scrap Brain's Shadow by NextGrandcross The Scrap Brain's Shadow by NextGrandcross
Not the best title, but whatever.

Music: Scott Pilgrim Vs the World Game: TechnoMan [link]

This one had ALOT of coloring to be accomplished, and some of my penciling was a little blarggh!! looking at first so it took awile to do the lineart. The silouette of New Megalopolis and the sky was he most time consuming part of the picture, and not really to pleasing to look at, but at least the Egg Dome came out okay.

Despite this being New Megalopolis, kinda weird to named the image the Scrap Brain's shadow, but whatever, New Megalopolis is practically all of Eggy's base's in one, well, till Enerjak wiped out the place with the exception of the Egg Dome building.

Bunnie turned out the best in this pic. Hey, I love Bunnie, so it's expected I do good work on her.

Another dynamic composition. There's a lot going on and I can imagine it would look quite busy as an inked piece, but the colourful heroes help them stand out against the details in the background. I like the blue glow of Sonic's blur, and I agree that your drawing of Bunnie is well executed.

Wow! How much perfect detail did you put in this pic?! It's absolutely jawdropping!
I love all the action in this! I love the sun in the background! All the darkness gives it such a dreary and outstanding effect! The colours are just spot-on! You deserve a clap! :clap:

I'm really digging this and a lot of your other "full scene" images, they're very well done! But looking through your gallery somewhere around here (a little before this one) it looks like you hit some turning point where you went from good to even better. It's cool to see improvement like that, I'm excited to see what you do next. :D

I got to really paying attention to how Archie Sonic comic artist like Jamal Peppers,Ben Bates, and Tracy Yardley put ALOT of detail into not just the characters, but into the very background scenery as well.

You should really look into working with Archie... You did see that internship thing on bumbleking right?
And that's quite a compliment you got there about looking like a cover. It sure does! :)

Very nice picture. I can see alot of effort put into this picture(especially coloring!)
Looks like the freedom fighters gave eggmans forces a bit of a roundhouse around the egg dome. Well in it anyway.

Great job.

Is the black lining done usin a tablet in comp? Or traditionally?
Reply
:iconnextgrandcross:
NextGrandcross Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2011
The lining is done using Painttool Sai's pen tool and using my tablet for other details.

I do it over my penciled sketch of the drawing.

Dude, you're an effing machine. You're cranking out quality art at an alarming rate. :wow: And not only is your coloring improving, but your inking has jumped by leaps and bounds. What are you doing different now that's improved it so much? Brush pen, digital, ...? And with how your style is advancing it falls perfectly in line with Archie's Sega-approved style. Is someone making a run at a staff position? :iconwinknudgeplz:

Painttool Sai is to thank. It's a very good program especially for doing lineart as it has the most easiest pen tool option.

It only cost 65 U.S. dollars (the program is mainly use in japan, but can be bought online)

How would you rate it compared to Photoshop or Illustrator?

For the lineart part,10 out of 10.

However I've never colored in Sai before.
