Sonic the Hedgehog #134: Page 4 by jongraywb Sonic the Hedgehog #134: Page 4 by jongraywb
Uploading a few raw pencil versions of pages from the older days when I first started drawing the Sonic comics in 2003. (But only the ones I'm happy with or want to talk about.)

OMG this is so friggin' busy. @__@

I remember being really overly concerned with making sure there were backgrounds and that there was always stuff to look at and never calming down and OMFG complete sensory overload and this was my first gig and I gotta make this look good and OMGOMGOMG.

It's a detailed page, I'll give it that. But that's the problem, I never had anyone to properly teach me that it's OK when less is more. It's a lesson I learned over time and in a way still do. Anyhow, it's too bad that in all that hubub, I'd get so concentrated in big details, that I'd forget little ones here and there like Sonic's ears...heh. Dumb butt. ;)

Is Jules done up like the 4th Doctor thar?~ If so, I think that's awesome since I'm a Who fan in recent years.

I remember this issue... Aside from the new, crazy, energetic and wacky style that I felt was totally awesome (if a little misplaced in a story with a serious tone), I also noticed it was insane with the crowds in the backgrounds... it's kinda no wonder the colorist decided to just have everyone colored purple to make the important characters that were focused on stand out more XP

Admittedly I really wouldn't mind seeing you pencilling for the issues again if the comics ever take a break from the serious storytelling and maybe have a comedic chapter on the odd occasion or something~
