Sketchblog Archive for Tags: Knuckles the Echidna

A catch-all dumping ground for art, sketches, and miscellany.

Bunch of doodles and coloring samples from the ArtSkills double-ended Brush-tip Marker review. I usually only test a few singles of a marker, but it’s nice to have a few more colors to play with sometimes. Limited palette is always a nice exercise in experimentation and compromise. Pink is a decent stand-in for a grey as far as darkening other colors go.

The chest ring on Loki’s costume first reminded me of tazzy devils. And then it reminded me of Knuckles. But Knuckles is more like Thor than Loki (punch first, think later durrhurr). Enter crossover idea wherein Knuckles has an adopted brother (possibly of some Legionaires?) who grows into a jealous jerk and harnesses the Master Emerald for evils and wants to throw Knux off Angel Island and rule and be king and stuff. …This really isn’t very farfetched for Sonicverse and I can totally see it happening. :|

Originally I was gonna color him black, but then it was hard to tell which parts of him were “skin” and which were costume pieces. But I think I might have liked him black better.
