Knuckles the Echidna:WALLPAPER by TheGatestormer Knuckles the Echidna:WALLPAPER by TheGatestormer
Knuckles the Echidna:WALLPAPER (2010)

When?
Last month.

About
The new wallpaper for Knuckles, to replace 2007 edition.

Description
Well, seeing as I haven't submitted anything for a while, I figured I should show something. I was a bit sneaky during the making of the tutorial and on the sidelines ended up making this in a spur of the moment (I'lll fill you in on the lost file status in an upcoming journal).

I said before I was going to re-make some of the wallpapers and Knuckles was one of those. This here is the updated image, something I believe to be much better in quality and general appearance. I feel it's a big improvement over the original from 2007, which I believe looked very disjointed in it's parts, I also didn't like the original's facial structure-but I digress. I'm very happy with how this turned out, in lineart and shading. The ONLY little niggle I have is that back arm, I won't say why but knowing me, there could be an edit resulting sometime in the future if it continues to bother me, we'll worry about that later though.

I hope you agree this is an improvement over the original wallpaper :)

Enjoy!

What did I use?
Adobe Photoshop CS4

yeah? so am i. i'm 13 and the reason i almost never express my true fangirl is because when a second someone wants the character i feel like killing myself... but i never do because i'd end up giving up everything i actualy care about... i'm sorry i yelled. it's just i never had this kind of argument before...

Yeah, I didn't mean it. and im glad I said sorry too. I wouldn't want you to kill yourself. And the funny part about that fight is that knuckles isn't even my favorite character. Shadow is. X)

Incredible, you did a fantastic job! Though the only thing I noticed was that Knuckles' eyes are purple, not blue. Though honestly it's such a small detail compared to the rest of it.

-Sonic, Shadow and Dr.Robotnik I don't think need changing.
-Super Sonic I will most likely make some edits to, but it won't a different picture.
-Cream, actually...I might change her to, she's a maybe along with Tails.

I'm guessing you're gonna add the yellow tint and upturn the top quill for Super Sonic?
Reply
:iconthegatestormer:
TheGatestormer Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2010
I might add some form of aura around him, but I wasn't actually intending to upturn the top quill, only because that wasn't the way he was designed in Sonic Adventure, which is what these wallpapers strive to cater for.

If I were to ever make a more modern image of him in the future, that would have an upturned quill :), the wallpaper however, won't.

Oh, in that case, the Sonic Shuffle art for Super Sonic will be your best friend, since that's right from that era. In fact, let me get the stuff right now:

[link]

I think the most interesting things are the "sharper" look Super Sonic generally had, and the fact that the shading color for the yellow is a darker yellow instead of the usual orange.

And no, I have never found the source art for that icon. I kinda think it may have been created just for the occasion.

I hope you find that useful :)

TheGatestormer Featured By Owner Jun 20, 2010
I hadn't considered that, but not a bad idea actually, thanks!

The main thing I want to edit is that fist, among a couple of small other points.
