    Today marks my 15 year anniversary at my job. Usually on Saturday nights I work both Customer Service and bookkeeping. I go in the bookkeepers’ office and find this on the counter: I was so surprised and happy to see this gift-especially the socks as I’ve been looking for Sonic socks for a while. The orange cupcake is of significance because orange is my favorite color. I knew right away this was my friend that left this for me as she was the opening bookkeeper this morning and she has bought me Sonic-related gifts several times. So yeah-15 years! It’s been quite a journey with me being a shy 19 year old that had second thoughts about taking this job to a 34 year old that talks too much and enjoys her job. And my coworkers are a huge reason why as they are like family to me.

    Now that my birthday has officially come and gone on my end I want to thank you all very much for your visits, wishes and kind words and goodies-especially the Sonic related ones! You all really cheered me up in doing so as I was feeling down for several reasons on my birthday including being in sick in bed all day with food poisoning so many thanks again!

    ....I may be two years late, but I felt like doing a drawing tribute to Komodin. It would've looked better in color, but I didn't have them at that time. I was inspired by the Sonic chili dog avatar (and maybe the ending of Unleashed) for this.

    Last night I left a note for my coworker wishing her a Happy Anniversary as it is her 15th here (my 14th will be in April). I come in tonight seeing she wished me one as well-pertaining to my 5 year anniversary here at the SSMB. I had only casually mentioned it to her some time ago so I'm surprised she remembered as well as tickled. But then again she knows I'm a big Sonic fan and she's the one that has surprised me with several Sonic gifts But yes it's been 5 years since I've joined the SSMB! Where did the time go?! Seems like yesterday when I was 28 and super nervous to click that button to join here. And it's definitely been quite a journey along the way where I've experienced and learned a lot...

    Alright, here's my honest to god attempt at Sonic 3 Sonic. I admit some parts of this were difficult, especially the face. I would like criticism and @The KKM I would like to know your opinion on it since you are especially eagle eyed when it comes to these things. I know it's not perfect at all.

    I've updated the Studiopolis zone map. This one's a lot better <<images>> So this is what the zone looks like based on all the videos so far. There are obviously huge chunks missing as certain areas have not been seen.

    Four tips I want to share for those who stress out easily when drawing. 1. Having trouble getting a pose right? Use references, build the pose up by shapes and lines, and do not trace! When you are tracing a picture, you are not focusing on the pose, you're only retracing the lines and where the color and shading goes. Also, it doesn't help yourself build confidence as an artist because you're depending more on the picture than your skills. And if you're planning on making a career as an artist, tracing is considered taboo in the field. So don't do it. Instead, use a reference picture of a pose you want to take on to help make it easier for you. And when you see the picture, still don't try to mimic the picture! Break it down to lines and shapes for the roughs. Take the roughs and fix the proportions to the character you want to make. Once you're satisfied, work on fleshing on the roughs. Be sure to also focus on poses and positions you're not familiar with instead of those that you are. 2. If you start a drawing, but immediately want to start erasing after just drawing a single line. Stop it. Save details for later and work on roughs now. If you constantly erase every time you think you make a mistake, you will only take up more time erasing that actually drawing. The eraser is a great drawing tool, but wait until you actually have a good rough drawing and then clean things up. You don't have to nail the picture immediately and roughs are supposed to be messy. So literally just go with the flow. 3. I want to stress this... don't rush a process. Yes, people love getting to the part where you add details, but details always come last, especially the fine ones like texture, fine lines and such. Take your time and get comfortable with what you're working on. Because if you rush it, you'll most likely miss an opportunity to add more detail to make your finished piece really shine. Patience is a virtue. So take advantage of it so that you'll gain more confidence in your work and be able to speed up your process. Also, if you're working on a deadline, waiting until the moment is always a bad idea! So don't ever do that. Plan ahead, make a schedule and pace yourself. 4. One of the best tip I've ever learned for speeding up my drawing process is turning my brain off. This may sound hilarious, but one of the reasons why most people struggle to finish a drawing is that their mind is occupied with a massive amount of thoughts racing through it... Mostly doubt and self-loathing of all things. Take a moment to calm yourself and push those distracting thoughts out of your head. After which, focus on the drawing and confidently draw your picture. Listening to music or podcasts normally calms me down and keeps the maddening of silence away. Now these are only a few tips I want to share. Honestly, if you have way you prefer to draw, do it. Some people are wicked fast in their process and their are a few that actually to need much to any references. But if you ever have those moments that you're finding yourself banging your head against the wall when you're drawing. Hopefully these tips will give you more of an idea to loosen up, relax and better your progress. Because at the end of the day, the best tool you can have as an artist is confidence. And no matter how good you get it's always important to note that there has never been an example of perfect art no matter how good it is. So as you get better, always be sure to appreciate how far you came and continue to improve by drawing as much as possible. I used to draw like this... At the time I made this, I remember that this drawing took me around 8 hours to complete. And even when I finished it, I would even make excuse on the flaws by saying the it was "what I was going for" when I knew damn well that they were flaws that I was too intimidated to correct. This is me now, This took me around the same time as the drawing above, maybe give an hour or two. I can still see that there are places that I can better myself at, but overall, I'm extremely happy with how much I've improved. I have a style that I can comfortably say that's a style of my own so that I could improve in places doesn't bum me out at all. So yeah. I just wanted to share this just to share a bit of what I know. And to be honest -- and this isn't aimed at anyone -- but I hate it when people shoot their skills down as artist. Some people don't want to be better artists because they're not interested in drawing. That's cool and I'm fine with that. But if you want to better your skills, then you can improve yourself as long you're willing to put the time in. Anyway, yeah. That's my big ol' post on this. Build confidence, use resources and references, and give it your positive all!

    "Son, for fuck sake," Black Doom roared angrily. "You're letting the family down. You never listen to me. I try to bond with you like a good father, and you just blow me off and disrespect me. What happened to you? Years ago, you were firing the Eclipse Cannon, destroying Prison Island, making the humans suffer... I was proud of the old you! But now... you're a different creature! You're the opposite of what we stand for! Your newfound kindness cost you your memories, and almost cost you your life! What do you see in this pathetic world? Why did you change!?" His back facing the Black Arm leader, Shadow turned his head to the right, not changing his expression. "I suppose you could say I..." Pausing for a brief moment, he turned his head back to the front, with a little smirk, and a nice new pair of sunglasses. "...Lived and learned." *DAAAAAAAAMMMMNN*
