Episode 6/10 - Sonic Showdown, Part 2
OK, so M.D.'s plan to thwart SZ, and use his own power against him, involves the band's Marshall stacks. "But hang on," I hear you say, "you've never drawn Marshall stacks before! How convenient that they should suddenly appear now!" Well, while it's true that I've never drawn them before, they've always been there. I've never drawn shoulder straps, or leads, or pedals before either, but they've all been there. Hell, the characters don't have noses or ears, but they can still smell and hear...! My point is, my art has always been representative rather than explicit. I don't feel the need to draw every single little detail. If I draw the band with their instruments, you know what's going on. Stacks or not, you know they're rocking the fuck out. I am also very lazy. My very first draft of the very first Episode featured stacks in the background, but, when drawing the final, I thought 'FUCK. THAT. I'll go nuts drawing and inking these things over and over...' So I didn't. Which is why you don't see anything here that isn't absolutely necessary to tell the story (or to effectively create a respecful homage)...
