Rocket Ride by Speedy1236 Rocket Ride by Speedy1236
For a while I've had the idea of drawing Sonic riding one of the small rockets from Chun-nan. It always seemed a kind of thing he'd really enjoy. ^^

My best friend and a few others too have said the tail of the rocket looks weird and I kind of agree, but I tried a few things to change it, but it didn't really work and I guess I'll just leave it as it is now. Ignore the weird end of the rocket, look at the fire from the exhaust and the sparkly fireworks and Sonic enjoying his flight instead. ;)

Oh my, this is beautiful! :wow: The fireworks looks so amazing and real. You did an epic job of Sonic, too, his pose and the way he's looking over his shoulder. That IS totally the kinda thing he'd like, haha! :happybounce:

Thank you DC! :)
Everyone said I should do fireworks for the background and I tried although I thought I couldn't do it... but it turned out rather simple. O_o
Haha, with hobbies like these and his general lifestyle, I doubt Sonic will find any insurance company taking him. ^^

Heh heh, they'd have to design a plan specifically for Sonic just to cover mad scientist attacks, echidna scuffles, rampages by giant killer robots, and freelance rocket-riding. :XD:

And it would DEFINITELY have to cover water damages. *shot*

Coming to think of it, that plan would cost Sonic a fortune. :XD:

Fireworks! ^^

But wow, what a picture! I love all the colors and the lighting effects, and Sonic just glancing back and grinning while riding a potentially dangerous rocket. Perfect thrill for Sonic the Hedgehog. xD Don't worry about the rocket end, it looks fine to an art newb like me. I'm too distracted by the fireworks anyway. :dummy:

I REALLY love this. :happybounce:

Thank you Child! It really looks like Sonic's kind of thing. Ignore the dangerous rocket and enjoy the view of the fireworks you get riding it. ;)

Haha, should I say now the fireworks are there to distract you? I could, but it wouldn't really be true. I painted Sonic on the rocket and didn't know what to do with the background and everyone said 'do fireworks' immediately. First I thought no, because I didn't think you could draw fireworks. Then I thought what the heck and drew them. :XD: And they really do a good job distracting people. :D

Thanks. :) (Love this emoticon, by the way. :happybounce: It's like me when I'm happy.)

Hee, makes ME want to take a rocket ride. :XD:

Well, there IS something about fireworks that are mesmerizing, and seeing them portrayed well in art makes me happy. Glad you decided to go with it. :D

You're welcome! :aww: (Heh, me too. I also like :squee:, :eager:, and :juggle:. They're just fun-looking. :XD: )

Haha, me too! Wheeeeee!

True. I thought it'd be impossible to draw something like fireworks, but they're a much more simple pattern than it seems on first look. :)

(DA just has the most awesome emoticons. :highfive: :typerhappy: :stupidme: ... They're just so funny. There are smileys for almost everything. I tend to miss them on other sides or chat programs. ;))
