Knuckles - 5 Years Later by ShadOBabe Knuckles - 5 Years Later by ShadOBabe
Whoohoo!! Knux is lookin' awesome!!

wow, I am SO relieved!! I didn't like the way he looked as a sketch. Something just wasn't right.

But in color it looks so much better!! XD

So five years later and Knuckles is 21 (he's totally legal - *bricked*)...
Still faithfully gaurding the Master Emerald no doubt. Probably got that big scar on his chest from a scuffle with some would be thief (not Rouge of course).

In this picture I really wanted to bring out some of the best of Knuckles. I resurected those killer scary shovel claws he had in SA2.
And I absolutely had to bring back the cowboy hat that Knuckles has worn on occasion (Anime Sonic movie - see here media.photobucket.com/image/kn….

I'm a Texan. What do you want from me? XD

That hat was unfortunately destroyed in the same movie however (newsimg.ngfiles.com/84000/8456… but it was brought back for the Sonic 25 Years Later series by Archie comics.

Or the other way around. I don't know when the movie or the comic series came out.

I also altered his shoes. They look less like lego blocks now and more like something the would pop out of the ground to kill Sonic.

It was so much fun to make (they all are)!!
Tell me what you think!!

You might want to redo the link to the comic cover; it leads to some power company site now.
