SONIC 20th Anniversary Cards [WAVE 2]: 8 of 28
EXCALIBUR SONIC THE HEDGEHOG

★ First Appearance :: Sonic & the Black Knight (Nintendo Wii), 2009
★ Age :: 15
★ Height :: 100cm (3'3")
★ Weight :: ?? (assumedly NOT 35kg due to a massive amount of armor!)

...Well, this was long overdue. But there's been a literal crapton of things in the way before I was able to finish this. Needless to say, the battle was well and truly won.

I really wanted to do Excalibur Sonic justice and I wanted to get the details about as right as I possibly could. I think I did very well. Needless to say, this took far longer than the other cards to do. I am very sorry that I did not pull a LiveStream together to finish this up with you all, but considering the circumstances (which I refuse to air here) you will probably understand why. I just looked at it today, and paired with everything I felt, I took it out on this.

Please, enjoy~ ♥

[EDIT 11.06.11] ★ Wave II- for reasons unknown to me (Probably due to being a complete clutz!) Were in the wrong size dimensions, and have been adjusted with bleed areas compensated for in order to bring it in line with the other products. In addition, colour tweaks have been made throughout this wave for consistency!
★ This will be available as part of a limited run at Summer of Sonic 2011 as a glossy postcard print (4.13 x 5.82 inches), with flavour text on the back and a big, white space for whatever you want! (I'll even sign it if you like), available to the general public at a later date. Limited run, will cost 3.50 GBP (5.75 USD) each, and 13.00 (21.00 USD) for the entire Wave of four!

Can I say something? I have nothing against Sonic or most of his games(Shadow, on the other hoof...). And this is pretty awesome. I just have one teensy tiny problem. And it's not you, it's the developers of knight Sonic.

What's with the ass-cape? I mean, really?

Other than that, this is pretty good. Okay, I wash my hooves of Sonic forever.

Or at least until they make another decent game.

I'm working on drawing Excalibur Sonic right now and I have to say, it is the most difficult thing ever. You should be really proud of this because it is absolutely incredible.

I have to admit, he was a little bit of a pain to compose initially due to all the initial shapes and overlays, but it certainly paid off. Thank you very much!

Excalibur Sonic is difficult to draw. It is a big challenge to draw his armor but it is only beginning.. Shading is really hard, but effects of work are amazing :D

He was a little bit tricky! But the core of it was basically to make sure that the sketch was as clean as possible, and building off the basic shapes, as usual. The colouring's pretty much down to practice, though. :3 Thank you!
