How Sonic 2 really started by manic-in-tricolour How Sonic 2 really started by manic-in-tricolour
Okay, full disclosure - this is something I came up with at work and thought it was pretty hilarious. There is a good chance that I am the only person who might find this funny, so I apologise in advance. There is a really good chance there will be more, equally dumb, coming down the pipe in the future.

This is closer to a really big personal experiment more than anything else - trying to work on general weaknesses that I otherwise try to avoid in some way:

- colouring
- backgrounds
- also colouring
- "keep it simple, stupid"
- not overloading PS with a tonne of layers
- COLOURING
- bottom-up angles

Yeah. Plus I wanted to work with some whacky expressions. I think those turned out pretty good.

It's now 2am. I should... do that thing called going to bed.

That face in the second panel~. It just screams Ren to me. Have you watched the cartoon Ren and Stimpy? It use to be on Nickelodeon back during the 90's. XDD Oh man that is such a Ren face.

As a matter of fact this whole thing screams Ren and Stimpy! 8DD That makes it better! I loves it~~~~. Faving now~. :3
