I know I said every other day, but I just felt like doing this, ok? Think of it as tomorrow’s drawing. 😛
Anyway, if you don’t know, this is Shadow the Hedgehog from the Sonic series. He is Sonic’s rival at almost anything, whether it be fighting or speed.
And he’s the most badass character in the series. The part on the left is his normal form, while the right is his super form. He transforms into his super form when he gathers and uses the power of the 7 chaos emeralds. The reason why it reads, “Shadow in Smash, or else” is because the creators of the game “Super Smash Brothers for Wii U and 3DS” are holding a ballot to see which video game character will be added to the game. I would like Shadow to be added. If you haven’t noticed, the red and beige is more vibrant on the super side on the drawing, which I added as a visual touch (look at snout and place above snout for comparison).
The idea of drawing this came up when I was playing the previously mentioned Super Smash Bros. I began playing on the “Windy Hill” stage in the game (Windy Hill is a location in Sonic Lost World), and the song Open Your Heart by Crush 40 came on as the background music (Crush 40 is a band that has done many songs for the Sonic series). That song reminded me of another song by them (Live and Learn), and Shadow appears as one of the main characters for the game that song was used in. After I finished playing the match, I turned off the game and started drawing this.
Game used for drawing: Pokémon Art Academy for Nintendo 3DS.
