Commission:: Friends... by Jetstreamx Commission:: Friends... by Jetstreamx
So I was asked to do this a long time ago by :iconcapnchryssalid: Sorry for taking so long with it though. Every time I blinked something came up with school. Free time was almost impossible. Its why, after I got done with :iconsaturngrl:'s I worked on the cheap ones first, since they were quicker. I just hope that I didn't disappoint. I worked pretty hard on this for the past few days.

Well, I've been busy in the interim myself. I ended up taking time off to work on my dissertation, at the expense of my internet and fanwork related endeavors. I understand delays all too well, but kept an eye on Devart to see how this developed.

This should do perfectly for a Chapter 7 title picture.

There’s a quiet introspective atmosphere to the picture, which was just what I wanted. I actually didn’t expect a picture where all four characters have their faces hidden from view, but this allows their body language to speak for their moods. I also like how it gives the impression that they’re headed somewhere ahead of them, or at least that they’re looking towards it, but we can’t see exactly what lies ahead. It fits in with the growing ambiguity of the story; every one of them looks or thinks about the future in Chapter 7. Sonic dreams about his carefree life and holding onto the past; Sally worries about how she’s losing control over the war and the relationships she has with those close to her; Tails is actively pushing forward his own agenda to save Mobius; even Nicole dreams of a day when AIs are integrated and trusted within mobian society. The sad fact is that a lot of the dreams they individually have are incompatible.

Chapter 7 has almost no action in it. Aside from the handful of pages handling the Mephiles/Iblis subplot, the meat of the chapter is the interaction between these four characters and the friendship and understanding they have that seems doomed to become frayed as the story reaches its climax. In that respect, I think this picture reflects just what I wanted in a picture for the Chapter.

It’ll be interesting to see how you handle the Chapter 5 picture, since that is the exact opposite: an action-picture for an action-Chapter.

Well, I started work on it earlier today, but I started with the designs that you had for Tails and Cream, such as [link] and [link] but I'm going to have a field day with this one. I can't wait to finish it to be honest, though its going to near about kill me xD I'm glad you approve so highly of this.
