"Even without wings, I can still fly" YES, Best quote in this game uvu

An old piece i discovered two days ago oAo, it was lined, flat colored and almost done with shading so i decided to finish it, it's kinda old so sorry if the perspective or the angles are not correct ;n; enjoy!

EDIT: Woah! thanks so much for the DD I could never imagine having one ;A; thanks Sonikkudrawings and Ry-Spirit!

EDIT2: I fixed the hand that is holding the board (I was so annoyed that this picture has a DD with that misshapen hand XDD)

What an amazing Sonic Riders piece! The lights, colors, effects, and Sonic with the Blue Star II all look so awesome. Good work. ( Suggested by Sonikkudrawings and Featured by Ry-Spirit )
WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW!! I cannot stop admiring this. When I first saw this I actually thought the picture was from the game, I had to look twice. I love how you've drawn the sky, the colour of the sky makes Sonic's board stand out beautifully. And I also like the angle that you've drawn this from, it's very creative how were looking up at Sonic, it makes you feel like he's jumping over your head and your looking up at him, I don't know if that was your aim but if it was you've achieved it well. The glint of the sunlight is very affective, in my opinion that's what makes this picture look real. Sonic's expression is perfect, he looks like he's on a mission at beating Jet again in a race. This is the best Sonic Riders art piece I've ever seen on DeviantART. Seriously. I mean that. I could admire this all day and not get bored. :D

This is, simply put: amazing. This really does look like it's part of a cutscene from the games, specifically the first one since it has an Anime opening, also the only Anime opening for Sonic Riders; plus the fact that you nailed the art style so incredibly well! It just fits so perfectly! Everything is perfect about this! Sonic's cocky grin, the angles, the perspective, the background; EVERYTHING is just SO. PERFECT! The grin matches Sonic's cocky, adventure loving attitude perfectly, the angle makes his board stand out incredibly well, the perspective really does make it look like Sonic actually IS jumping over your head like LittleFoxxie said! The background is so beautiful and wonderful! I cannot find a single flaw with this drawing, it's just THAT GOOD! Outstanding job! You deserve all the praise you get for this!

No había notado que la mano de Sonic estuviese deforme... lo que sí es que ahora se ve aún mejor! :D

Holy shit this is gorgeous, this right here is one of the most beautiful pieces I've ever seen. No wonder it got a DD. You should be so so proud of yourself because it's gorgeous and just can't stop going on about it. Hopefully this gives you the attention you deserve.

Also this would make an amazing poster.
