This was so much fun. And I've been wanting to create a bright picture like this for a while.
I must say, I'm actually very satisfied with this. Cool color schemes are my absolute favorite, and making the water and effects and everything was a blast. I can't wait to continue improving upon this and become even more comfortable with Paint Tool Sai.
When I was finished, this brought back so many memories that I had growing up with Sonic games.....especially Sonic Adventure, since it strongly resembles Emerald Coast! Haha, one of these days, Im totally making a picture of Sonic being chased by a whale. When I first saw that, that like defined Sonic in 3D for me! xD
