  1. Here's a classic Amy I got commissioned to draw :v

    1. Kiah


      That is absolutely adorable! ?

  2. Meant to post something about this a while ago, but go check out my friend's student film! I helped out with some of the animation on this

  3. Is this real? 'Cause, uh..

      I will always love that floating island bit. 

    3. The Master

      The Master

      Its real. This was his pitch for a Sonic movie. He screwed over Ben Hurst (Sonic SatAM writer) to do it too.

    4. Forte-Metallix


      The savior of the franchise, ladies and gentlemen.

      This is what he's fighting* for.




      *Not doing anything but whine and brag on Twitter.

    5. Osmium


      why does Sonic sound like he's 5? Was that supposed to be when he was a kid or something? 

    6. Tara


      Worth a note that it's just a pitch so it's not supposed to look anywhere even close to finished.  It's just supposed to showcase a concept and convince companies to finance it.

      That being said, it's still not a particularly impressive pitch, and having a child voice Sonic was probably not the best idea.

  4. I just started playing Super Mario 3D Land out of curiosity anfter finding my brother's copy lying around, and wow this is like the worst feeling Mario game I've ever played, both thematically and control wise. And here I thought 3D World was the worst.

      It's funny, I just got my 3DS a few weeks ago, and got New Super Mario Bros 2, and my first thought after "Man, this is every bit as creatively bankrupt as I thought it was gonna be" was "Wow, using the D-pad sure gives me some great hand cramps".

      Mario really hit rock bottom back then didn't he?

    3. Ferno


      If that was rock bottom then Mario really has it good.

    4. Nightly


      Oh yea, though honestly I think 3D Land is even worse than the New Super Mario games cause at least in the 2D ones you have a competent control scheme. Everything feels so imprecise in 3D Land due to it trying to mix 2D level design in a 3D space.

      This just makes me even happier that Odyssey is a thing.

    5. shdowhunt60


      At least I got Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon to wash my mouth out with at the end of it. Good game, made by people who actually tried.

    6. Dejimon11


      There's something hilarious about this status. 

    7. Nightly
    8. Nix


      This status hurts my head.  3D Land and 3D World are incredible.  The controls are really tight and they both have some absolutely fantastic level design.

    9. Celestia


      Honestly what strikes me about 3DW (never played 3DL) is that it was the first time jumping on enemies actually felt...reasonable in a 3D game. Not just in Mario games but any 3D platformer. It's such a minor thing but it really stood out to me.

      I can understand not liking how they restricted you to 8 directions, but I thought it still felt pretty natural and precise.

    10. Nightly


      To clarify I really don't think either of these 2 games are super bad in general, especially not 3D World, but compared to other Mario games I think they're really weak.

      In 3DW's case, it's a perfectly competent control scheme, but the fact that you're so restricted in direction and movement makes it just feel really underwhelming to me. I don't feel like I'm controlling Mario however I want like in 64/Sunshine/Galaxy, I feel like I'm following a specific set of rules and I'm never allowed to do anything more. It's perfectly playable though due to the fact that it's made with more 3D sensibilities in mind. 

      3DL on the other hand, at least from what I've played so far, is way imprecise. I keep finding myself overshooting and undershooting jumps and having to reposition myself all the time by hovering in the air with the tanooki suit. I don't know what they did in 3DW to make jumping on enemies actually work, but it helped bring up the control scheme from being really flawed imo to something at least playable.

      Maybe I'm just not used to it , and that's probably true, but even still I just feel like these controls are really lackluster.

      Oh to clarify something else, when I said that I thought that 3D World was the worst, that's compared to other 3D Mario games. Also I think it's fine game and can be fun at points, so that really says something about Mario games when one of my least favourite games in the series is still good fun.

  5. I just updated my art thread with a bunch of my recent art


    1. Silencer226


      You have a very very very nice gallery of art.

    2. Nightly


      Oh thank you ^^

  6. This song has been stuck in my head like all day.

    I just found out about this artist recently and I really like what I've heard so far.

  7. No other Sonic 06 review is ever gonna top this.


  8. I'm so glad Sonic Mania's a thing.

    1. Nightly


      If it was just Forces coming out this year I'd just be really sad seeing one of my favourite franchises growing up have absolutely no idea what to do with itself.

    2. Osmium


      would you be gone now if Mania wasn't a thing 

    3. Soniman


      It's also kinda sad how this is said by someone everytime we learn something new about Forces lol 

    4. Nightly


      @ShroomZed I wouldn't have come back and stuck around this long in the first place if not for Mania.

    5. TheOcelot
    6. Nightly


      @Soniman Well I'm not gonna lie about how I feel. Forces doesn't look very good to me and Mania is a blessing.

    David Lynch is so fascinating.

  11. Here's some Snicks

    1. Kiah


      Beautiful! :) 

    2. The drunkard from space!

      The drunkard from space!

      Not quite Tyson's style but I think the way it's drawn still has style and charm to it. Very good!

    3. Nightly


      Yea, I was mostly just drawing these off of memory so there's a lot of stuff off about these. His head needs to be a bit more squarish and something different has to be done about the eyes, I'm not too sure what though.

      Either way tho I'm glad you like it =P

    4. Osmium


      yeah these are extremely competently drawn, but to be honest these look nothing like Tyson's Sonics. It's more your own style than anything. 

    5. The drunkard from space!

      The drunkard from space!

      Nightly, if you ever do draw Tyson's style that'd be great! But personally, I don't want you to lose the style in which you draw Sonic. It's really good! Don't give up your style in favor of someone elses. I'd like to see more Sonic characters drawn in your style. A Nightly styled Shadow would look badass and adorable at the same time, infact take that as a request Lol. Keep up the good work!

  12. So yea, that new trailer is just like the hypest thing.

    1. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      I've seen hype-er(?)

      ...Is that even a word? To the dictionary!

  13. I'm really glad that this guy's videos are showing people the importance of character construction, as opposed to like every other "how to draw" video on Youtube where they just draw/trace lines and don't actually teach you anything.

    1. Osmium


      Most definitely agree. Nothing peeves me more than a "how to draw" video that just does the silhouette. That's not really teaching you how to draw the character, that's just following lines. 

  14. Puyo Puyo has taken over my life. Don't help me.

      Don't worry I won't ;)

  15. Watch Jordan Underneath.

    1. BlueTidalGamer


      I quite liked this one.


  16. Here's some animation I've done recently for a film my friend's making. I'm really happy with how this shot turned out~

    1. The drunkard from space!

      The drunkard from space!

      Lol. That's cool!

    2. FriendBot


      It's animated very well, it's got that nice cartoonish stretch to it! ME LIKE VERY MUCH!

  17. God, I really wish I could animate like this. Rod Scribner was a mad genius animator and a huge inspiration to me

    1. Osmium


      I've never spoken to you directly about your art but I do like what I've seen of it very much, just saying. You understand squash and stretch extremely. 

    2. Nightly


      Oh thank you! ^^

      I've been practicing the fundamentals of golden age cartoons since I was a teenager and I'm glad it's paying off lol

      Still need a lot of practice at making things move correctly though.

  18. tfw animating for 10h+ in the past three days

    1. Nightly


      That is to say 10-15 hours straight for each of those three days, not just 10 hours in total. That'd be sane.

  19. Here's a little mashup I did of Sirius from Kill la Kill and Live and Learn :v

    1. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      Just gotta mention your drawing of Shadow is so cute!

    2. Nightly


      Oh thanks! ^^

      I haven't drawn Shadow since like I was a kid, so it was fun drawing him again lol

  20. Just animated a quick little Sonic thing.

    1. Kiah


      Go Sonic go! :) 

    2. FriendBot


      A very nice thing!

    3. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      Awww! He looks really happy and cute.

    4. Ellipsis-Ultima


      It's so cartoony!

    5. Nightly


      Thanks! Cuteness and cartoonyness are two things I strive for =p

    6. FriendBot


      Then you pretty much at your peak unless you think you can do better, if so I don't think I can be mentally prepared for such cartoony goodness.

    7. Nightly


      You won't be mentally prepared

    8. FriendBot


      Welp, it was nice to think properly until then.

  21. Here's a Daff I drew the other day

    1. Kiah


      That is so cute! ^_^ 


    1. FriendBot


      That was just bizarre.

    John K, the creator of Ren & Stimpy, just followed me on twitter :0

    He's a huge artistic inspiration to me. I'm ecstatic right now ^^

    1. MightyRay


      You're snagging those connections pretty quickly! ;)


    2. CottonCandy



      I know the feeling. The director and animator of the Boondocks followed me on twitter. I couldn't believe it. 

    3. Kiah


      Awesome! Congrats! :) 

    4. Emperor Robrainiac

      Emperor Robrainiac

      Considering how picky he tends to be, (At least from what I've heard) I'd say that's a pretty big honor to have him following you!
