For years I've been making the point that comic artists who draw Sonicverse characters inevitably get it wrong if they've made a career...

ball by MusikalGenius

The layout and design in general are good, as is the lighting on the bubble. But it's the expression on her face that really sells it. ...

Fallen Empire by jcbarquet

Very effective. I'm reminded of Turner's paintings and the use of a diamond shape in the center to express the action and to take in th...

Activity


After posting the first drawing I assessed the results and decided, to quote a line from "Blazing Saddles," that "evewything bewow der vaist is kaput!" So I tried again, jackknifing the knees and bringing them closer to the elbows.

I'm still not totally satisfied with the results; the defects can be chalked up not to the 8-bit character model but to the 2-bit talent of the artist. But there is it.
I usually burn off any unused vacation days at work between Christmas and New Year. So anyone wanting to do anything for me would either get it in early or wait until the new year.

The beginning of the year is when I discovered several tokens in my In-box: an MLP calendar (dollar store variety), a Pinkie Pie zipper pull, and this card signed by my co-workers.

If it looks a little funny, like a recolored Derpy, I have to state that this is not a store-bought card. Someone in the department hand-made this, or printed it out on a computer to be more specific.

I've never been too shy about being a brony, and I figured that my co-workers would either tolerate it as an eccentricity or think I'm crazy and keep their distance. This is something else; I'm not only touched by the participation but surprised that someone took the trouble to make the card for me. I honestly never expected them to show props to the ponies this way.
FRISK : STOP, DROP, AND ROLL by DanDrazen
FRISK : STOP, DROP, AND ROLL
At one point in playing Undertale the chara Frisk has to deal with a doggy guard (I forget the name). One of the suggested strategies was to drop and roll on the ground to give him something to smell, I suppose. Since I'm playing as a pacifist I thought this was a proper strategy. I also thought it would be a cute idea to try and draw.

I know, I know, my attempt at doing anatomy is really lacking but I like to think I got the point across.

Hey Dan, I remember you hating the "Play on Playa" cover to Sonic #152 in one of your reviews, and I just thought you'd find this funny. :)

I have been reading your Sonic comic reviews for the past 16 years. I'm going to miss reading them. It's too bad there will never be a review for the Nicole arc "Spark of Life" in Sonic Universe. Oh well...

Thank you for the many years that it lasted.

Maybe I'll break down and read it, since it seems to have hit a nerve with a number of fans. At least it doesn't seem to be slavishly tracking the "the world is coming to an end in slo-mo" continuity lifted from Sonic Unleashed.

Thank you for writing.
