I have Corel Painter 11. I still hope I'll be able to try that. Or "attempt" it, if you will. I definately can't be as good as you at it, but what the hey. I can give it a shot. Awesome work, I love it. Keep up the awesomeness~!
good to see some painterly sonic illustrations.. excellent.. you work in corel painter much?.. very well rendered.. the only thing i could say that bothers me about this painting is that there's a little too much going on w/ the glow effect that encompasses him.. i feel like it could be more centralized around sonic, and just mask off a small glowing border around him.. this way it makes him the focal point as opposed to him blending too much into the painting.. other than that.. love his form and pose... cool stuff.. added to
