Drawing Fanart helped me get an Internship +NEAT

Journal Entry: Wed May 16, 2012, 4:35 PM
I did a redline of a terrible "professional" Sonic drawing ( seen here: cosmicremix.tumblr.com/post/23… ) which was then viewed by the owner and producer of a commercial studio here in San Diego. After also reviewing my portfolio, they decided to bring me in. I start work tomorrow.

This is actually the second time that drawing Sonic fanart has lead to getting me studio work. The first time a rendition of Knuckles I did instigated some freelance work at a studio in L.A. Of course, having original artwork and designs helps to solidify any job opportunities.

BUT STILL.

:'D


Excite!

Thanks for ripping Penders a new one.  I hated his art forever and I was an avid reader of the comics as a kid.

I saw the art the other night and I was REALLY impressed. I was actually hoping you had a dA page so I could tell you that, because that is fantastic.

(also, ooh, name changes! I'm tempted to get a premium membership just so I can go by Shensation. Animeshen is an amazing pun, but I don't draw anime anymore.)

Two things.

1. :iconsoniamproudplz:

2. I agree with that post. Penders just does NOT do any Sonic character justice. I honestly think a good portion of the Archie Sonic staff is made up of adults with the mind sets of whiny twelve year olds. With that said, why can't I stop reading what they publish?

Maybe it's like a bad soap opera? It's just so awful you can't look away? :'D

Though, from what I've seen, a lot of the newer issues have nice artwork. I still just dgaf about the writing, though hurhur.

The artwork has improved SO MUCH, it's really nice. I'd subscribe again if I couldn't just get the comics from a website. LOL! But seriously though, Penders started a freaking court trial because he got a stick up his butt. I just hope they don't do anything dumb like this with MegaMan.
