'You'll die beneath the stars' by Bolty 'You'll die beneath the stars' by Bolty

The grass on a lonely valley sat quietly, only moving to the slight breeze. All of a sudden, something was shot down from the sky. It shot towards the valley and plumeted into the ground. It was Super Shadow the Hedgehog. His super form was fading, as another hedgehog followed him to the ground. But this one landed more gently. Dark Super Sonic the Hedgehog.

He landed gently besides Shadow and began mocking him.
"Why are you doing this Sonic? It has to stop!" Shadow pleaded.
"You are a threat to my power", Sonic began, "and any threats must be eliminated".

Shadow tried to get up, but he was beginning to think it was already to late.
"Sonic please, this isn't like you, you don't have to do this!" Shadow said.
"Yes I do!" Sonic shouted. "I cannot let you live for you hold the power to overthrow me", he paused and thought. "It's ironic really".
"What is?" Shadow asked.
Sonic smirked, and began charging his power, "You were born above the stars....and now you'll die beneath them!"

Just a little story to go along with the pic. Please do not flame me for the situation in the picture. This is also my entry for the ~ssclub's Free-For-All contest. I have no idea how long this took, but i think the inking took the longest. 66 layers. 66 I TELL YA!! *shot* I really how this pic came out. Which is a good thing, cause atleast my last Sonic pic is a good one. Yup, i doubt i'll draw Sonic again.

Ever since i drew my first furry pic, i seem to have lost my touch when it comes to drawing Sonic art, and all my sketches are crap. And don't give me any of that 'But you are a good Sonic artist' crap, cause i know the difference between good and bad art. Yeah, maybe my standards are too high, but if i didn't set them so high, i'd never improve. Plus, i find furry art a much more interesting type of art. I may put a Sonic pic up every now-and-again, but it'll mainly be furry art.

Crappy title, i know, but i couldn't think of anything else. Advance crits please.

Oh, one more thing. Vote for me please ;P *shot*

That is so cool..... That is alot of layers. I could SO see that in a game. But I do believe that DSS would be more of a darker color... And you could've added teeth to DSS's grin. EVIL GRINS FOR ALL!

You've done a really nice job with this piece, and I can definitely see why you needed 66 layers, lol. ^.^

I do have a couple of suggestions tho. To me, Shadow's skin seems to be a little too dark. Normally Sonic's skin is a little lighter than Shadow's, but his Dark form makes his skin turn darker than Shadow's colour. In this instance Shadow's skin seems a little too dark. It could just be me tho.

Another thing I noticed is Sonic's mouth. It doesn't really seem menacing to me. From what I can gather about Dark Sonic, his anger makes him transform into that state and makes him not unlike Sonic the Comic's form of Super Sonic, albiet probably slightly less psychotic. His mouth just tends to remind me of Mickey Mouse for some reason, and you rarely see him pissed off, lol. Maybe a full-teethed grin would suit Dark Sonic a little better? Seeing a full mouth of teeth on an evil/anti-hero character always makes me think that he's either enjoying the pain he/she's putting others thru, or that he/she is ready to snap. Again, just a suggestion tho.

The real standout here is your grass. It looks so good! It has variety in colour, depth, everything good grass should have. It also adds a lot more depth to the image as a whole. Great job! ^.^

Overall I think this is a great piece of artwork, and you're definitely in with a chance in the comp. Good luck! ^.^
