for reminding me to put this up here. This is one of my favorite illustrations I've been lucky enough to produce for Archie's Sonic series! IF I get assigned to do vol 4 I don't know how I'll top this one, at least in personal investment.
Typically I have one specific detail on each cover (or panel or page) that I'm interested in, one detail that makes all the rest of the work worthwhile to produce, but in this case practically every piece is my favorite. At the top of this list is the inclusion of Nack (or Fang if you prefer)! I've got a special place in my heart for Triple Trouble and this might be my only chance to draw him. I think its super cool that Ian still utilizes the character in the comics and would love to see his return in the games.
I read somewhere that he's supposed to be a wolf weasel (or half breed of some kind), and I was pumped to apply a similar type of nose on Drago. I'm certainly implying that's the kind of nose a wolf in Sonic's world would sport because I can't stand how generic the cartooning was done before.
Almost as cool to me is the chance to draw based on the Sonic CD style which I tried to apply all around. I wish I had a little more time to mess around with the Chaotix designs, or maybe I'm just better now, but I see how I could have gotten more out of them (pretty cool though to draw old style Vector). I thought I would follow
's lead for Mighty.
