What he doesn't know is that when the smoke clears, he won't find his prize. Sonic's already dodged the bullet, readying himself for a counter-attack.
"Hah! No measly bullet's gonna stop me!"
Okay, so I found out just earlier about this little contest-thing that Archie is holding right now. It's called the "Sonic Versus Contest" and the idea is that you have to draw Sonic versus one of your favorite comic villains. I chose Nack because I not only like his character, but I also thought it would be a little unexpected. My first gut reaction was to draw Scourge, but I figured everyone else had the same idea as well.
...Also, Nack is purple. I mean, come on. PURPLE. I had to go with him.
I'm really sorry if this looks rushed, because it should. It takes me hours and hours to get anything done, and I was really pressed for time here. (I think the contest ends really soon!)
I wish I were faster with this stuff. Oh well... That comes with practice, I suppose. @_@
Aside from tight time-constraints, this was also a challenge for me in that I have never painted a desert before. Nor a gun. Nor Nack. Nor a bullet. xD I'd say it's okay in that regard, though I obviously could have done better if I had more time. (Took some artistic liberties with Nack's attire. I thought it turned out pretty well.)
I was thinking about using a cork instead of an actual bullet to stay kid-safe, but then I recalled countless times actual guns and bullets were used in Sonic games. (Take, oh say... the intro to Sonic Adventure, for instance..?) I don't think it's a big deal.
So yeah. There you have it! I know I probably won't win... but I figure that it's better to try and fail, than to never try at all!
I think my wrist is about ready to catch on fire. LOL Enjoy!
