Well it looks like the Sonic the Hedgehog #268 cover is online now, so I thought I’d post some some progress shots. This was a fun cover to do, and had an interesting design process.

-First, the thumbnails. you can see I didn’t really nail it in the thumbs, but the ideas are starting to form.

-As per specifications from my editor, I made the rough— you can see my original idea for a visual gag with Bean and Bark didn’t make it past the legal department!

-Sonic was too small and not gun-ho enough, so I did two alternate poses. Also I forgot about the sidebar that’s on the comics now, so I had to scoot Tails and Amy over.

-Final pencils!

Covers always go through a lot of revisions, because they’re the most visible part of the comic.

Enjoy!

I hadn’t actually heard about THAT angle of the Sonic reboot started by the crossover with Mega Man. Interesting.

And on that note, the Sonic/Mega Man crossover was far, FAR superior to… THIS. In pretty much every way. And not just in the “low hurdle to clear” sense either.

Huh, I got mentioned (I mean, unless there’s some other tumblr user that did an [excruciatingly] detailed writeup of the Penders case).

Glad to be of use.

Yep, it was you! Thanks for the write-up, it was quite helpful!  ^_^

YOOOOOOOO

Aaaay it’s me!

Remember when it took several minutes for a Flash cartoon to load because your modem took forever?

Uh… thanks to today’s ruling about Net Neutrality, chances are we could be going back to those days. And we won’t even get a cute song to go with it.

A total load.

MY CHILDHOOD— every Monday we would wait 10-15 minutes for the latest SB email or cartoon to load on our dial-up.

Funny story— it’s not in this video, but the loading screen for one of the “Stinkoman” cartoons was made to look like a “page under construction” image… my brother and I waited about five minutes, concluded it really was a page under construction, and left. Didn’t see that cartoon ‘till years later.

Also, another good point about Net Neutrality.

Legit question…

Would you guys flip if I drew an issue of GOTF with humanized Sonic characters?

Doodled a bunch of humanized GOTF headshots while waiting classes to start/food to arrive/ etc. Shadow looks super dumb and Silver’s still odd, but I like the rest. Little be more ‘toony than usual!

Yeah I just really wanna post the next page so this is to tide me over.
