Canoe Trip by Speedy1236 Canoe Trip by Speedy1236
Drew this after I was playing the Olympic Games with my sister and she said I should draw them in a boat. I said 'poor Sonic'. :XD:
I still say 'poor Sonic' now. Kid certainly doesn't look too happy about that trip... Probably he lost a bet.

Anyway. I got kinda mixed feelings about this picture. For some reason it took forever to draw... I like how the characters turned out, also the boat and the water are nice I think. I tried a lot of different things for the shore, in the end it became reed and rocks obviously but I am not sure yet if I like them.

Comments are greatly appreciated. :)

Sonic, Knuckles and Tails (C) Sega/Sonic Team

What?! Sonic has a life jacket on?! I'm surprised he doesn't have a jetpack and oxygen canister too!

Sure, fire away. The worst thing that can happen to you is that I give you a nonsensical answer. ;)

Thoughts on Pokemon? (In general, not just the games, anime, or manga specifically.)

Never really been into it, actually. I'm more the jump'n'run type when it comes to gaming, and I never got into the anime, either. ;)

That water looks brilliant! c:
And so do the characters. For some reason I really notice the eyes a lot, especially Tails's eyes. But they're all so shiny and full of life. ^w^ Also love the coloring especially on Knuckles's dreadlocks, Sonic's quills, and Tails's tails. The coloring is great in general but I couldn't help but notice something I really like on each of them. :aww:
And aww, Sonic's ears. I'm guessing he's probably happiest in the middle there.
...Or, you know, on the shore. xD

Oh, and also the reflection of the grass and the boat in the water is really nice looking.

Great job on this! ^v^

Yeah, I guess he's happy to be in the middle... and having that life jacket on. But the shore would probably be his prefered alternative. :XD:

Thank you DC! :aww: How've you been doing?

As always, I am very impressed by your grass. Those must have taken forever to do properly without copy and pasting. I also like how the whole work is lineless. The water effects are really nice too. What program do you use for this? Nice work really.

Speedy1236 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks. :) Actually, the rest took a lot more time than the reed (not grass, it's supposed to be reed of sorts ;)). Glad you like the water, too. Water can be tricky to get right.
I always do lineless, I hate doing lineart so I just stopped working with it at some point. :XD:
As usually, this was painted in GIMP. :)

Oh, really? That's cool, so do you just color directly? How do you know where the boundaries are? Thanks for replying.

:iconspeedy1236:
Speedy1236 Featured By Owner Nov 19, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Sure thing. :)
I sketch freely on paper, usually just the character(s) or another thing that's 'in the center' of the picture (in the case of this piece here, I sketched the canoe and the three characters). I take a photo of the drawing and import it in GIMP, using it as underlying reference so to say. Then I add more and more layers above it as I color (usually one per element).
And yes, I guess you could say I color directly. I select a brush and color I want and just draw over the sketch (on a different layer of course). Most of my sketches actually are a kind of lineart so that I always know where the boundaries are.
For things other than the characters I usually just draw completely freely, with no boundaries at all. I just kind of start and see where it gets me. ;)
