Since I haven't put up artwork in a while I thought I'd throw this up.

It was for a collab on the sonic stadium which was meant to be completed by SOS but uhh that went bust because everyone disappeared and lost the spirit, since it's been a few months since then and the project is dead as a dodo I thought it'd be okay to finally post this up.

When I did this I hadn't drawn anything in the Riders style since this pic so I was SO RUSTY it hurt, but hey I think it turned out alright despite that right? haha

As usual

awesome job!
It looks so much like the original Riders style!

This looks very nice! I really love the angle and you executed the style very well :iconyayzplz: Love the effects as well :3

Nice job with the rider style :D I just love Sonic's pose to this! You did a nice job with drawing his board there.

Boards are still an elusive beast for me to draw, I'll get better though, might do a series of rider like pics because I do love the style.
SikyuSonic Nov 3, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yeah they're pretty detailed to draw D: But you did a nice job executing them at least :) Just keep trying!

I know there's supposed to be a distance thing going on, but the feet and board still seem too small.. either that or his legs seem longer that way.

Still, my initial thought was "THAT'S what I like to see! A Sonic fan drawing something not too classy and not too old from the series!"

The spines have a pretty heavy size contrast, though :\

Hmmmm I see where you're coming from, even to this day perspective still boggles my mind, I think I could have improved on it by hiding more of Sonic's body and making his feet larger, what do you think? Btw not too sure what you meant by the spines having a pretty heavy size contrast?
ShonowTH Nov 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Size and contrast. There's a big difference in the size of his spines. Look at the top center one and compare it to the twigs on each side ^^;

I have no idea how to fix the distance thing, though. I'm not skilled at drawing. I may seem to be, but I'm pretty horrible ||D
