Ok, let me start this with "I DID NOT COPIED THIS FROM THAT IMAGE OF SHADOW IN THE JAPANESE OPENING OF SONIC X."
Really, I didn't copy it (actually, I had forgotten about that image, but maybe, since I like Shadow a lot, it remained engraved into my subconscious, or what it's called...), one day I was so bored that I started drawing, and this was the result; only after a few days I discovered that the pose was the same.
It's the second time I cg a pic, but this time it was a struggle; while the shadows were easy to do, I hard a really hard time doing the highlights, and there may be some errors on that part, but since I can't see them anymore, to me it looks good.
The fact that it was hard to do (took me half a month. Hey! I'm a beginner! Remember it), it made me proud how it came out, and I'm happy with it. EXTREMELY happy.
To not let the background a simple, plain dead middle gray, I decided to put Shadow's eye (a little blurred so it wouldn't ruin the main subject too much) because it's the part that I came to love the most. ALSO, that eye is 100% sized. This means that the file I worked on has the eye that big (my computer froze over more than one time, and one of these I lost to hours of work. Luckily I have 256 mb of ram. I don't dare to think what would have happened with my previous 128... brrr!)
