{Excalibur Sonic / Lady Gladys}

"The English Ladye And The Knight"[link]

It was an English ladye bright,
(The sun shines fair on Carlisle wall,)
And she would marry a Scottish knight,
For Love will still be lord of all.

Blithely they saw the rising sun
When he shone fair on Carlisle wall;
But they were sad ere day was done,
Though Love was still the lord of all.

Her sire gave brooch and jewel fine,
Where the sun shines fair on Carlisle wall;
Her brother gave but a flask of wine,
For ire that Love was lord of all.

For she had lands both meadow and lea,
Where the sun shines fair on Carlisle wall,
For he swore her death, ere he would see
A Scottish knight the lord of all.

That wine she had not tasted well
(The sun shines fair on Carlisle wall)
When dead, in her true love's arms, she fell,
For Love was still the lord of all!

He pierced her brother to the heart,
Where the sun shines fair on Carlisle wall -
So perish all would true love part
That Love may still be lord of all!

And then he took the cross divine,
Where the sun shines fair on Carlisle wall,
And died for her sake in Palestine;
So Love was still the lord of all.

Now all ye lovers, that faithful prove,
(The sun shines fair on Carlisle wall)
Pray for their souls who died for love,
For Love shall still be lord of all!

Trust me, I have A LOT more to post by next week, I just really wanted to go ahead and post this since I already had it done y'know.

Alright, so...
But, he was LOADS of fun to draw, you guys should try it sometime XD

Meh, this time its a creativity for thought drawing.

I was aiming for a scene with both of them kind of in a respectful silence after a few losses of blah and blah.

Or maybe even a scene with them just silent at each other, maybe angry, or saddened with each others behavior?

Meh, IDK.
These two do not like each other, **kinda** at all XD, Lady Gladys is a soloist and of course Sonic wants everyone to work together towards the common goal, but Gladys being the b**** she is wont cooperate with anyone for nothing :D

LoL Knight Rivalry Lurve <3

Okay the drawing in general.
My thoughts, I think I shaded well, for my first time ever drawing Excalibur Sonic it came out alright, I think the scene kind of fits with the tone of the song I chose.
Gladys is alright, I honestly like Excalibur Sonic MUCH more in the drawing.
I could have done the tree better, and the background though.

Any extra critique would be amazing.

I hate and love my taste of music BTW ;w;

Excalibur Sonic belongs to SEGA
Lady Gladys/ Vegas Silversnow Counterpart belongs to Me.
Art Style belongs to SEGA
Art Belongs to Me.
Song belongs to Loreena McKennitt

Questions in the Comments,
Favorites, Watches, and Critiques would be just great ^^

I'll give a critique. C:
The shading is very nice and blended well. It looks like you actually put some time and thought into it instead of adding shading to random areas. Same thing with the lighting. I really like all the detail you put into the clothing, especially Sonic's helmet. I love that cape. x3
The colors you used for the flowers are the perfect tone for this particular piece. Not to vivid, or not to dull.
The branch of the tree Sonic is sitting in looks unnatural to me. The blossoms are very nice, but are clumped together too close, and look as if they were just put up on the tree without anything supporting them or holding them up. I suggest that next time you add some more branches to the upper area where the flowers start to appear. Here's some great tutorials to help you out-
The style you used for this is a bit overused, and not very original. I suggest you move on to a more individual and thought out style. However, the idea behind the drawing is very creative.
The line art is sort of messy in some areas. For a good result in line art, you should be very concentrated on what you are doing, and keep a steady hand so it doesn't get all wobbly. And don't make some areas (of the line art) thicker than others unless it's part of the shading or if you're making the outline stand out. That makes it look like you were trying to cover up mistakes, which I am pretty guilty of doing myself sometimes.
The expressions are okay, but it doesn't really look like they don't like each other. It would look better, in my opinion, if you made Sonic glaring at Lady Gladys out of the corner of his eye.
The anatomy is okay, it fits the style, and their poses actually look anatomically possible and make sense. However, Lady Gladys looks kind of stiff. Sonic's farther leg looks kind of awkward. I think the pose would look more natural if it was resting on the branch instead of having it lifted up.
I do like the perspective on this one for the most part. I can see you put some work into making it loo like they were actually sitting on the tree branches, and you pulled it off pretty well. However, Lady Gladys sort of looks like she's floating. I believe it's because she doesn't look like she's ON the branch, but just floating in front of it. If you happen to create a similar piece, seat the character a little farther back than you did for Lady Gladys on this one. The perspective on sonic is very nice though. C:
Did I mention I like the vines hanging down in the background?
Cause' I do. :u
Well, I don't really have anything else to say about the picture soooo....
Originality- 3/5
Effort- 4/5
Shading and lighting- 4.5/5
Background- 2.3/5
Perspective- 3/5
Vision- 2/5
Technique- 2.9/5
Impact- 3/5
total score- 24.7/40
Overall, I think this is a nice drawing, but like all artists, there's some stuff you need to work on. There's no such thing as a perfect piece of art, and even the best artists pictures have plenty of flaws.
I hope you find this mildly helpful. :)

I can't believe you really love the armor :D
MoonlightVegas Featured By Owner Dec 20, 2011  Student Traditional Artist

And YES I LOVED the armor, although I switched it around a bit her for the Black Knight setting, other than that the ORIGINAL armor I am STILL using, I just need to draw it XD

I was waiting until I got a tablet so I could do the beautiful glow effect
