Immortal Bond - Shadow x Tikal by Cylent-Nite Immortal Bond - Shadow x Tikal by Cylent-Nite
Been a while since I did any fresh Shadow x Tikal art, so I thought it might be best to celebrate coming back to dA with a new piece! Pretty pleased with how this turned out, the drawing and lineart took me a while. Though, I ended up just half-assing the colouring. I'm still unsure what kind of colouring style I'm satisfied with. In any case, I do enjoy how it looks simply. I named it after the title I gave to the ShadowxTikal club many years ago, and it's a huge upgrade from my very first ShadowxTikal picture, complete with Super form!

Since there seems to be some preference with the setting and colouring, I might do an updated version of it later with more effort put in. xD

Update: I've fixed a few things on the picture, like neatening some of the shading and adding highlights, as well as screening the colours to make them lighter. I think it looks better now.

Why are Shadow's quills all up?

They are like Super Sonic's quills, not Super Shadow/Normal Shadow.

Not really sure, I've always just been a real big fan of this pairing. I wanted to do a super picture of them, and what better way than to actually make Shadow Super! xD I wanted to show what I felt for the pairing, and it depicts Shadow preparing to go off to fight a major battle and saying goodbye to his love, much like a soldier kissing their wife goodbye before heading off to war.

I don't understand this couple, can you explain it?
Reply
:iconbellaura:
Bellaura Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2012  Student General Artist
I can. :lol:
The main thing to say is about they are both dead. :rofl:
Uhm... ok. Then, we can state as dead characters, they are somehow related with Emeralds ; emeralds generated by Master Emeralds + Super Shadow. Why not to say them as the "Evil and Good", and rival couple of Knouge ? :XD:

We can state common and opposite attractions :
:bulletblack: He has red eyes
:bulletorange: She has blue eyes

:bulletblack: He is the past
:bulletorange: She is the future

:bulletwhite: They are dead.
:bulletwhite: They failed to save their family (Shadow with Maria, and Tikal with old Knuckles)

Well, that's the best I can say (only currently). Maybe something else better than this ? ^^;

I really love your style. Also, this picture brought back a memory I've forgotten until now. I used to support this paring as a kid. I think I still like it too :D Screw pairings making sense o3o
