Unbreakable Bond by sketchiegambit Unbreakable Bond by sketchiegambit
I really can't beleive its been 20 years!

I'm glad Sega are more than tipping thier hat to the classic days, the original games were the best whatever anyone else says.

I wanted to do some sort of tribute to the original box artwork that used to ship with the games. Back then I used to buy games based on how interesting the art was as I was only 7 years old and the internets and nerd rage were not invented :giggle:

Took me a while as I tried a few new things with this :)

Characters copyright Sega, Artwork copyright me :)

You have neat stuff in your gallery, not just the fanart. :L I hate when people stop by just for the fan art.

Thanks! I see where you're coming from, having a varied gallery isn't a stretch from what I like to draw so I honestly don't mind, although I prefer to work on my own ideas. But fanart certainly seems to be more popular :) And I love your gallery too btw :D

Nice! I really like this one. The simple 1 toned mountains really work, and you've really got that classic colouring style done well! Super well!

Thanks! It's suprising how playing with colour saturation can create depth.

So it seems :D I really like you're colour choice, the bright colours really stand out. I'm not ashamed to admit that when I just relooked at this now, I was like, "wow, I forgot how cool this was"

Thankyou :D I'm glad I've manage to capture that fun aspect, I used to be surrounded by box art for games when I was a kid and I really miss the lack of action and storytelling box art has these days. And thanks for commenting on the perspective, it was a bit of drawing by instinct while being aware of the vanishing point but not letting it rule the action or the composition.
