    The Rusty Ruins Of Richard Jacques A drawing that I have done on an individual A4 sheet. I drew this piece while listening to this YouTube video on loop: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXubvSgn-KA. Most of the elements in this drawing are inspired by Rusty Ruin Zone from Sonic 3D Blast: Flickies' Island. (Specifically the SEGA Saturn iteration.) The lamp post is inspired by lamp posts in White Park Zone from Sonic 4: Episode II. BIC blue médium biro pen on regular paper.

    Gloopincerig. Bramblewood A5 Notebook - Page 37 The pincer is inspired by the pincer on the front of house robot Dead Metal from the Robot Wars television shows. The gloop is inspired by gooey elements of the Goodra character from the Pokémon series. The satellite dish styled element is inspired by some similar elements from one of my previous pieces, called "Aquatic Architecture.". The name Gloopincerig is a portmanteau of three words: gloop, pincer, rig. These words represent the main items in this piece, with the word rig referring to the overall mechanical structure.

    MentumAuris Feline Hybrid. Bramblewood A5 Notebook - Page 36 There are quite a large range of inspirations behind this piece! One of the biggest inspirations behind this piece was the fact that my previous animal-based piece, called "Friendly Fins.", turned out much better than I had anticipated. As a result of that, I was eager to try drawing another animal-based piece. Another large inspiration behind this piece, and the starting point for it, was to draw a cat body, as they are one of my favourite animals. One of my family member's cats, who had black and white markings, and is sadly no longer alive, was lying down on my lap for a significant amount of time while I was drawing this. As such, this drawing has quite a bit of sentimental value to me. As the drawing progressed, I incorporated visuals inspired by various other sources... The size and styling of the spikes on top of the head are inspired by spikes on top of the Zomom character's head, from the Sonic Lost World video games. The eyebrows and fur tuft on top of the head are inspired by the eyebrows and fur tuft on top of the Crash Bandicoot character's head. The fur curls at both sides of the head are inspired by curls at both sides of the Classic Miles "Tails" Prower character's head. The muzzle area is inspired by the muzzle area of the Sonic The Hedgehog character's head. The size of the ears, the ears' inner fur tuft, and the spacing between the ears, are inspired by the ears of the Braixen character from the Pokémon series. The outer tufts of fur on the bottom tips of the ears are inspired by the ear tufts of the Sticks The Badger character from the Sonic The Hedgehog series. The tuft of fur on the bottom of the head, inbetween the ears, is inspired by goatee style beards. The accented tip of the tail is inspired by the tips of tails seen on foxes. The fur patterns themselves are inspired by those seen on black and white cats, however the smoothness of those patterns are inspired by markings seen on cows. Mentum is the Latin word for chin. Auris is the Latin word for ear.

    Branches of foliage. Bramblewood A5 Notebook - Page 34 This piece has various sources of inspiration. One source of inspiration comes from my desire to do a more full-fledged take on drawing plant life. I quite liked what I did in my previous piece, called "Chunk of nature.", and was eager to expand upon that. Another source of inspiration comes from the Unravel video game, and all of the stunning detail its level environments have. This piece was particularly influenced by the plant life from the Berry mire level. Additionally, the rope on the middle branch references the similar type of material that Unravel's playable character Yarny is made of, and also references trees in reality which have had ropes hung on or wrapped around their branches. This piece also has a little bit of influence from Sonic The Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles. The tendril coil on the middle branch, and the large spotted mushroom on the bottom branch, are inspired by gimmicks in Mushroom Hill Zone.

    Vintage Visuals & Traditional Trimmings. Bramblewood A5 Notebook - Page 33 The circular shapes at the ends of the street light's horizontal bar are inspired by circular bumpers in Carnival Night Zone.

    The Trials And Tribulations Of Screen Tearing. Bramblewood A5 Notebook - Page 32 There is a perspective error in this piece, which I did not notice at the time of drawing it. The base of the monitor is 3 dimensional, while the desk is 2 dimensional. ^o^

    Thank you! I'm pleased you like the design! ^w^ To this day, "Friendly Fins." remains one of my favourite drawings. I wasn't used to drawing animal-like things at the time (And I'm still getting better at that.), so this one turned out better than I anticipated. I really like how the face turned out, the overall expression ended up coming out rather nicely. I contemplated adding a nose at the time, but decided against it, and I think the design is better without it. I think the lack of a nose compliments the 'cuteness' of the face. 🙂 Slim-legged Springy-spines Cyclopes. Bramblewood A5 Notebook - Page 25 The main influence behind this drawing comes from the sentient treasure chests in the Tricky Treasure levels of Rayman Origins, which is what the slim legs, and in particular the Cyclops elements, are inspired by. Additionally, there are quite a lot of other sources of inspiration behind this piece... ... The spines are inspired by the spines from Sonic The Hedgehog. The dangling rings are inspired by ear rings, as well as rings from Sonic The Hedgehog video games. The springy coils on the spines are inspired by the coils of springs from Sonic The Hedgehog video games. The hair above the eye is inspired by the hair of the Bart Simpson character. The roughly triangular section of the body is inspired by the volcanoes in the backgrounds of the Lava Mountain levels in Sonic Runners. The semicircle design of the eye is inspired by eyes of Metal Sonic.
