Heh.. and again, you say
well anyways, when I enjoy a character why not doing it more often?
The reason behind this is easy, it's supposed to be a t-shirt design, cleaned up and simplified, examples for the t-shirt can be viewed here: [link]
actually all the glowy parts have the color of the t-shirt.. I love that effect, looks rather nice!
Except that, had this laying around for a while as well, quite quick done in a unusual style for me, but anyways.. really enjoyed making him, I wonder if Sidey is even able to have a happy face.. hmm...
