Dood. Too many black lines. D:

Seriously, I think that's the problem here, the black lines that you've used everywhere. xD Screw 'em, just go without the outlines and such. On the emerald, it'd look a lot better if you replaced those dark lines with extremely light/dark green/yellows, to make it look shinier and more awesome, and on the rock outcropping holding up the emerald, just use dark browns, and on the stone predastal/contruct and wall thingy, just the darker shades of the off-white colour. And Knuckles certainly doesn't need those outlines.

YEAH. CRIT. Take it or leave it. ;D

BUT THE BLACK LINES FLACCID; THEY ARE MY SAVOIR *baws*

Yeah, I have to admit I'm too dependent on them... XD By that you mean the use of colored lines, or no lines at all? I think I've done the former before, just without success.. :P

I just want to apologize if I fail at taking critique outside of my realistic art projects, since on most of these I just get 'COOL' spammed on them, so... Yeah, not used to them. :XD: I always appreciate them though!

And oh, I forgot, rather than the black lines on the rock supporting the ME, you could replace it with a faint green light. I know you've already shaded it, but this is just an extension of the whole no-lines-whatsoever advice. xD

Well, a mix of both, really. As in, if you have to use a line (say, to draw a mouth) use the appropriate colour, which in the case of a mouth would be a brown that's near-black, but aside from such things, methinks you'll want no lines whatsoever.

Meh, I don't mind. xD Me critiquing others' artwork helps me to identify the mistakes in my own as well, but I certainly hope you use it. XD Even if it is on a Sonic piece. ;D

IN ANYCASE, I DEMAND AN ABSOLUTELY LINELESS REVISION OF THIS PIECE, IMMEDIATELY. D:<

I couldn't stay for long whilst you were doing this, but I really the enjoyed the little bit I did see :D I love the detail, and the effect of the rain - it makes him look so lonely but stoic at the same time XD Plus, the colours are great - the vibrancy of the emerald especially!

Very cool! I had no idea it was going to rain! No wonder you did that shading.

During the livestream, how did you find Dracula the Musical?

Um...I found it pretty good for a musical adaptation. ^^

Looks pretty good! :thumbsup: the only thing I would say is that the Master Emerald and wall look a bit
wonky but I would notice something like that ^^;
