:collab: Airborne Artillery by rontufox :collab: Airborne Artillery by rontufox
Line art by *Aerobian-Angel :iconaerobian-angel:


I've been infatuated with *Aerobian-Angel's incredible napkin drawing ever since I first laid eyes on it. The epic camera angles and perspective distortion, the dynamic posing and action, the split down the middle alluding to S&K's dual playability--plus, Flying Battery is simply an awesome zone (my second favorite).
At the time I still had no grasp of color, so I always secretly hoped someone would color it--who knew less than a year later it'd be me, heh? :lol:

This is the most complex character lighting I've ever attempted, and it was freaking hard. I kinda feel like I overdid it in a few places, but. Ah well. If you notice no other details, please at least look at those missiles. And the capsules along the wall. I spent so much time on those tiny things, and I'm proud of them :XD:

Also, don't you like how Sonic's skin keeps getting increasingly pink with each piece I make?
How long til I ditch peach and just start coloring him hot pink I wonder lol.

"Sonic" and all other trademarks and trade names are properties of :iconsegalogoplz:.

Me too I LOVE to mess them up with PAR codes (swaping genocide city with Metropolis act 3 for example wich causes a very glitchy stage to load)

I was gonna point you in the direction of ~Aerobian-Angel's line art since he should be the one getting the credit for it, but I see you've already done that! Much appreciated =)

Yes, I noticed almost instantly after I'd commented lol. Oops.

But praise where it's due, the choice of colours and use of heavy shadows are beautiful.

Oh, this zone. I love Flying Battery Zone. This is one of the best fanarts I've seen for S&K, which is (the second half of) my favorite game in the series.

What's your absolute favorite zone, by the way?

~Aerobian-Angel's line art was definitely an amazing tribute to the level and the game, so I'm glad you like how I colored it =) I love Flying Battery as well--I can't pick a favorite zone though... I love Hydrocity, Ice Cap, Flying Battery, and Lava Reef! What about you?
