So what’s different? Well, if you remember the original line art for Shadow himself was done in 2005. I think I didn’t get around to coloring him until 2010-2011…maybe. I didn’t like the background. Like most of my work, I keep a layered file so that I can change things later. Also, as an artist, I never stop learning. Most times I’ll call a piece “done” simply because I’m too lazy to do the obvious…like a paint a background relative to the subject. So I decided to paint something based on a stage from Sonic Adventure 2. Also, I added some highlights that didn’t exist before, but kept that cool analog effect in the emerald and energy, similar to what you’d see in an old 80′s cartoon, because you know, I’m an 80′s child. Anyway, I think this looks MUCH better, even if it isn’t perfect.
We got asked for this so many times! You ask, Team Chaos Cosplay, we listen! We tried to do, with what we had. Sakuraflor Arts and Cosplay made the Armguards just for this and DeathstrikeCosplay lent out his amazing reaper costume!
