Tornado Uppercut by tazsaints Tornado Uppercut by tazsaints
Theme 85: Spiral from the 100 Themes Challenge.

Wow. After about 4 hours of artists block (which was infuriating, to say the least), I finally managed to get a good idea. Despite never playing Sonic Battle, I've always liked the art style. And of course, that meant I had to have a go at it sooner or later. :D
You wouldn't believe how hard it is to draw in that style. :phew: It takes freakin' forever!!
And as per my norm, I made it harder for myself by adapting it to how I like to draw at the same time, so it's not an exact copy of their official art.

But oh well, I think it came out rather good. What do you guys think??

An Upper Kick, huh? Sounds cool, but my Fire character Julia, is very passive. She only fights when backed into a corner.

FREAKING AWESOME. I'd definitely recommend Sonic Adventure I and/or II, if you can find them.

XD Thanks a bunch! X3 But if you actually compare it to official art, you'll see the differences immediatley. The biggest challenge for me whenever I try to imitate Sega's art styles is trying to make my fleshed out characters match the same flow and aesetics that the skin-and-bones Sega characters have.

Lol The style does, but not the actual art itself. My characters actually have muscle, and that is soooo hard to incorporate into Sega's art styles.
