SONIC ADVENTURE ART TUTORIAL by TheGatestormer SONIC ADVENTURE ART TUTORIAL by TheGatestormer
SONIC ADVENTURE ART TUTORIAL

When?
Way too long.

About
The long awaited SA style tutorial.

Description
At long last, the day has arrived where I'm finally releasing the Sonic Adventure Style tutorial!

The question I get asked the most is when I'm finally going to release this project that I've talked about for years, and I've never been able to give a solid answer until recently.

This thing has been on the cards since 2007, but every time I started it, something got in the way that stopped me, whether it be education commitments taking up my time or the hard drive crash I suffered in 2010. This time though, I was determined to get this finished and finished well.

I'm actually thankful for all those roadblocks over the years. I realise now that I wasn't really ready to produce something that was worthwhile back then, whatever I produced I would have been unsatisfied with months. Now years later, I feel I've developed enough solid skills and techniques to be able to make this a reality, something I can be proud of and something that I hope others can learn from.

I actually released this last week on physical discs at Summer of Sonic. I only had 100 of them and they proved to very popular, I hope this digital release continues the trend.

So, I hope what I've put together for you here is useful and that you enjoy working through it!

Thank you!

HIT THE DOWNLOAD BUTTON TO DOWNLOAD THE .ZIP FOLDER!

ADDITIONAL:

If the PDF performance is very sluggish, to the point where it's hard to work with, please send me a note and let me know! I'm hoping to work out some way of providing an improved performance if it's needed.


What did I use?
Adobe Photoshop CS4, CS6 and Adobe Illustrator CS4

Sonic the Hedgehog and all related items(c) SEGA/Sonic Team

That's weird, can you not open it? What's the file extension?

I'm not sure what the problem would be...I've never heard of that before.

I assume that file is an APPLE exclusive.

Well, I do use a Mac - but the file itself should just be a .ZIP containing two .PDF files and a .PNG. I know plenty of people who have downloaded this who aren't on a Mac.

I'm not familiar with Gimp, I've never used it so I can't say for sure, but this tutorial was made for Adobe Photoshop.

Sorry!
