Heh, I recognized which issue this is referencing immediately. Your use of your Sally model continues to impress, and I believe this is the first time I've seen your Sonic model. While he's still close to his game appearance, there's this sly bit about his expression that evokes Yardley's artwork. The rendering is exceptional, with realistic backlighting and detailed texturing on the stone prison. For lack of including hair effects, which I understand are difficult to do in 3D, there's a subtle texture on Sally's hair that conveys the appropriate look. Even the blurring of the background shows an amazing attention to detail. It's submissions like this that make me wish my paltry 3D skills were as advanced as yours. I look forward to seeing what other covers you can accomplish in 3D. My top choices would be Sonic #47, SSS #2, Sonic #114 and Sonic #125 (although I doubt we'll see that one).
Thrice now that you have produced superb work, excellent work. Your artistic talent is more than worthy of being official SEGA artwork of the Archie Sonic series. It is like the actual comic cover was brought to life, especially with detail on their skin, the texture on the wall and the lighting in the scene. I really like you pay close attention to the little details that make all the difference on one's artwork. Your amazing artistic talents and skills are very professional. Your artwork will always make me jealous of your skills. I'm glad you make amazing Sonic artwork; keep up the great work and good luck to you in your future endeavors.
I feel like you were cheated of a good critique. I know you are not requesting a critique so I'll make it short.
I see what they mean by make it better like... | They want you to keep the textures to other of your artworks. In this work you made it appear as though they were models/plasticine and you kept this look throughout e.g brick wall and jail bars. Good job at keeping theme. The remodel is exactly what the original looks like, which is what you aimed for. Lighting, expressions shape perfect.
Problems: Improve warn texture/appearance, make the cell look dusty +/dirty, the body textures are slightly wrong and make them look like plastic, however these are models. That was what you were aiming for though, models.
Devious Rating: 4 |Vision: 4 |Originality: 2| Technique: 4.5 |Impact: 4.5| Overall 4: Originality 2 because it already exist just remake but change in medium etc. + appearance still gains some originality technique: very good, consistent, not perfected Impact: very good, sentimental, appearance etc. also, not the most visually explosive Overall quite good.
