This is a picture for a box art assignment. I am currently still working on the background for the boxart itself, but have the standalone image with a little background :)

The character was originally for a 3D assignment but the model still has some texture errors here and there. I will upload a .swf turnaround here once i have polished it a little! Images of the current model can be found here: twitter.com/FyraeArt/status/72…

It is still a bit too Sonic-styled for non-Sonic projects in my opinion, so definetly gotta work a bit more on that.

Hmm. This is a good character. Sonic O.C, right? This is a very good piece of art. I absolutely despise Sonic, but I have my own O.C too. This actually makes me like sonic a bit more. It's drawn very well, and i feel like i wanna hug this character. I think you did a very nice job. And this is very original, too. ^-^ I like how you made this character an starfish, wich is different from the usual jerry the fox or terry the hedgehog you'd google online. In fact, i will favorite this. It's that good. /.<./ Good job!

I over all like this piece, it's very clean and consistent with very nice colors. Pretty pleasing to the eye! Naturally though there's room for improvement. While the shading is nice as is I feel like it could leave more of an impact of the shading used darker values with an addition of a back light- perhaps a nice blue? The color choices while good there is one thing that stands out to me, and it's that her shirt color under the red stripe is pretty close to her skin color and it's pretty easy to mistake that part of the shirt for skin. But that's the only part of her design that I believe can be improved, over all it is a very nice take on a species that would be very difficult to sonicfy! It's very simple yet memorable. One other thing I think would improve the piece is if you over all lightend up + desaturated the arm and hand that's behind her head. Lighter colors and values is a great way to show distance and it would make it easier to tell where her head ends and where the arm begins, also it would help make the piece pop more.

Over all, this is a very clean and nice piece, it's hard for me to believe that this is something that's outside of your comfort zone. Keep up the good work!

Ben heel benieuwd naar je schoolopdracht haha.

Ik kan je wel helpen om soms een beetje los te komen van de Sonic stijl als je wilt? Heb er een paar tips voor.

You know not to be an arse about it but
What was the point in making the comparison to the other character if you don't have a reason behind it?

Like you probably don't know this but to compare one character to another character isn't exactly a compliment. It's actually really rude to the artist as it makes it seem like their work and design isn't as special as they would like to believe it is. I understand that there are characters out there that can look similar to other characters but in the end of the day it shouldn't have to be called out. Especially if the person had no idea of the other's existence.

I'd love to see more aquatic characters as well! Your Sea Angel character is very cute.

By the way, for some reason, when i try to visit your page my browser says that it found malware or something, but the link to your gallery works. Just not your profile.. :o
Is everything going alright over there?

That's so weird that it does that. A few other people mentioned that as well. I'll have to do some further investigating on it. And I'm glad to hear you like Shore, my sea angel. She's one of my personal faves :).

It's really weird. It only does that on my computer, but it works just fine on my phone. A few of my friends had the same happen. I hope this will be able to be fixed!


I love her design. It is simple but powerful. The colors really make her pop out!
