Sonadow - Recovery by BlueNeedle-Inu Sonadow - Recovery by BlueNeedle-Inu
Hi guys! Forgive my transparency on here from time to time. But uni work is getting busy and assignments are starting to get closer to due date :)

But for now here's a new installment - and sequel to "Please"

This gave me a great excuse to practice on line art, crease shading and background styles. oh, blood and bruising too XD

Anywho - no flaming non-sonadow fans, but welcome and enjoy :D

Catch you all later :)

P.S Sorry if it takes me a while to get back to your comments/replies/watches - I do see and read them - but getting the time to give replies is getting smaller as of late.

EDIT: I thickened that visible left thigh simply because it became obvious and started to annoy me greatly XDDD

Thanks for pointing it Riverbanks ;) All fixed - i think ^^;

Haven't done one of these in a while, but I just couldn't resist on something like this. Well, let's start with the visual, which is amazing! As always, the lighting shading, colors and everything is just perfect. And after watching you're youtube video, I can see the incorporation of your techinque. It's clear as day how dificult it was, and kudos to you for being able to perfect it! The expressions on their face is wonderful as well, Sonic's espicially. It' displays the mood of the piece perfectly, and I love Shadow's caring glance. This really captures the essence of these two.

This is also extremely original, not one of those every-day, find it on the DA homepage pictures, which is wonderful. The whole bloody and bruised idea is very underused, which is a pity, because characters look their best when their beaten to a pulp! (Maybe that's just me...) But the background is also different, I like the starry effect, as well as the light surrounding each little star. If I'm not wrong, that must've took a heck of a lot of time to do.

The detail is nice as well, right down to the folds in the blanket, you hit it all! And it's really emotional and moving! WONDERFUL job!!

Why would you think that from this pic?
sonicyoaifangirl1904 Feb 6, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
cuz it looks like hes killing him...
....Uh no. Shadow's repairing his bandages. There's an ointment in the corner of the picture if you notice, along with many gauze pads he used to wipe away excess blood until it clotted. It's during the early stages of Sonic's recovery from his wounds. And a rather large injury on his side reopened from Sonic tossing and turning in his sleep.

Shadow's holding Sonic up so he can wrap the bandage around the middle, The bandage end is in his mouth so he can keep the wrapping tight enough. Because it won't do much good if the bandages are loose. Sonic's expression is showing he's clearly in pain - but Shadow is trying his best to get the job done so Sonic can continue resting.

Hope this explains it better for you :). I swear it's not Shadow trying to hurt him, it's quite the opposite really. 
I've been shipping Sonadow as my OTP for 4 years now - I assure you i'm not going to draw what you think you saw here.
