N: "Tell me.. Don't you remember the old saying... 'Things are not always what they seem' I may look like some common grade product.. But I live.. I eat.. I sleep.. I breathe. I am more like you than either one of us would like to admit."

S: "So... your secrets out, Now that you don't have to hide it from me anymore tell me.. whats up with the suit.. You that bad a fighter or are you just that damn ugly."

N: "Insults won't be enough this time.."

S: "That so eh, then come on.. lets see what you can do when you're not hiding behind your tech."

N: "If that is what you wish, just know.. You don't always want what you wish for.."

--------------------- end sequence ---------------------

And finally the final product is done. This has taken far longer than any of my other works before it and took a grand total of 384 layers to complete.. while it may not be practical, I guess it's just how I do things and I can't say I'm unhappy with the result. ^^;

Looks like a confrontation between my top 2 characters has broken out.. both seem to be beaten up quite a bit and the effects of the battle surely show from the physical facial damage to Saffron, and the Metal and suit wear/tear on Nova from scratches to out and out metal rips.

But the rips expose a truth that I felt many looked over in his introduction, Nova is no mere robot.. that is now revealed.. Some may want to know exactly what he looks like now that they have gotten a glimpse.. You don't necessarily have to wait for much longer.

Something big is about to go down... but no more spoilers from me.

Saffron and Nova the Hedgehogs- :iconallbowdown:


I would like to thank crap loads of music, Pepsi, and all the people who gave feedback on the preview image for all the help in allowing this pic to come out as good as it did. Thank you people and products alike. ^^;

Damn man. You really outdid yourself this time. How the hell you managed to use so many layers is beyond me though. XD

Great work on the lighting, especially on Nova. You can see you put a lot of time and effort into this piece and it definately paid off. Nice work.

a total of over 100 layers!? that sure explains the epic coloring and shading in this!

Very nice,
I love the blood effects on his teeth.:)
And also the fire effects. (its fire right?^^;)

But it seems to me there are too many stars...probably just me...:XD:
The shading on the front character (whats his name? ^^;) seems a little off....

I think the glow effects on the robot could be a bit cooler...:XD:.

*just now reads the your comment thing*
DAMN, it don't say "Advanced Critique Encouraged"! :noes: So i guess ill stop here....:+fav:
