This work speaks for itself: - Excellent color selection and contrast, nothing to hide; - Two characters, two companies, two rivals fighting... that's so epic, fighting for who is the best, what could be better than that?; - There's some details, like the shoe's zip of Sonic is suppose to be rectangular and hollow, but the work is so impactful that we can ignore them; - The background makes us feel the intension of the battle, that there's not just a simple battle, but it's for the honor. I can't say more, I love this work and, as I said before, this work speaks for itself! Congratulations, *Haychel! If I have to give you a grade, an A++ (or 10, or 100) wouldn't be enough. Keep it up!
I disagree on the pallette thing. I think it's how in their first games, they never said anything, so you got to completly invent their personalities. Then, in later games, they both have great personalities, but which only show up in some games. (Ex: NSMB has no personality, even though it's new.) This means that it started out well, and got even better, matching the preferences of more people. Plus, overall, they're both just plain awesome.
Wow...... simply epic! I'm speechless. This is a terrific work (in the good sense), the colors, the poses, the faces and the lights, it's awesome. Who did you kill to draw like that? Hehe. Once again, excellent work, man. Keep it up!
Yes, the colours of these two together are very appealing. And you have depicted taht very wonderfully right here.
Though to be honest... even though I have been a Nintendo fan all my life, and prefer Mario over Sonic, if they ever were to really have a fight where they each had their own powers, Sonic would win... hands down... -_-
Though now that I think about it, a battle between them probably represents the battle between the two franchises because they were both in very high competition with each other during their peak (nintendo vs sega). And that is also why this scenario appeals to so many people. I guess when looking at it that way, Mario won the fight.
