Sally and Mina by BenBates Sally and Mina by BenBates
Messing around a little with Sally and Mina's designs. I was never happy with how I was drawing Mina in general for issue 221 and have wanted to play around with her for a long time now. This is still not what I'm looking for out of the character but its better.

Mina holding that mike...reminds me of vocaloid for some reason.

Nice job, btw.

Love what you did here, Mr. Bates. You did an excellent job of drawing their designs into the Sega-style. There's not a line out of place, and the colors just POP. :)

It's odd seeing one of the simplest character designs right next to the most complex.

Thanks! I appreciate the words of support!

I've been away from Sonic for a few months now but I just finished a cover for 260 and had a lot of fun putting it together. Now I'm about to start work on the cover for 261. 

I don't know when I'll get back to penciling interiors so hopefully these covers will keep my name in good standing!

Who says Mina can't have a new look?

I was browsing my sonic favorites and found this gem again, i just love the way you drew these gals ovo Sally's face here is great, its unique but fits the sega sonic style :thumbsup: Those boots are perfect too.
I hope you dont mind but I did this [link] with the Sally sketch ;v; I hope thats alright!

Oh man, hey Charlotte! I happened to jump online way back when you sent this and I really appreciated it! I tried the link again now and it looks like its down.
I was working and tired back in June, (yeah, June 25th? Man I was in a super crunch that week. I had to finish the Cutie Mark Crusaders comic by June 29th) and it was great to hear you enjoyed just a little doodle I did and that it then inspired you to go on and create more stuff with it. 

Sorry it took me so long to say, but thanks again!

You should use the eyes on this drawing of Sally on her new design. I think her new Amy-like eyes are what's putting a lot of people off Sally's new design. The eyes you gave her makes her look very young.
