Such a Waste by TurtieDroppings Such a Waste by TurtieDroppings
Because I couldn't think of a better title XD

Thank you for everyone who came and watched me color this! I was so nervous and all the kind people, friends, family, and watchers, even inspirations, made me feel so much more comfortable! You're all awesome!! <3333

Sally looks like she's on the verge of crying.  Maybe she laments something, like that structure in the background which is probably Robotnik's handiwork?

Between you and this other artist Trunks24, you guys should submit your stuff to Archie Comics.

I think the title could be referring to the cityscape. Since it was once a glorious metropolis - and was effectively bulldozed to bring in that mechanical plateau - she must feel great pain for having lost her home to that monstrosity.

Although, if you looked at it, I suppose it could almost be beautiful, depending on the lighting. The city lights and glow is really quite pretty. Y'know, if it wasn't a smog-chugging, oil drenched sewer plant. Imagine where all that backwater waste must go.

:heart:This picture of Sally is beautiful! And the way her hair is blowing in the wind makes her look even better. I'd suggest calling this something like "Older Sally Acorn" or "Sally Acorn Redesigned". You did a super great job. Bravo! :D:heart:

Actually, the long hair was a throw back to the times in the archie comics when she grew her hair out. It's fun to draw long <3

Thank you :D

And this is why you're one of my favorite artists. Had I been in charge of that background, she'd probably have been right in front of a rather non-descript building that would have taken up most of the space. But you, thunder-lady, really go the extra mile, and I salute you for that!

I still stand by the idea that the grass shouldn't look so healthy, but your work is fantastic nevertheless!

You have a beautiful technique, KTT. It's no wonder you've amassed so many fans to see you in action. This is a lovely and flattering representation of Sally. The proportions and faithfully depicted and I particularly like the volume you applied to her vest. The background with its hazy lights in the distance adds a bit of extra mystique. You have a strange way of drawing Sally's ears that I think look more fox than chipmunk, but that's just me. I also feel that you have have applied some sharper shading to the hair to bring out its detail and vibrancy. Work those highlights!

I would like to give you some constructive critique, but I there is just one thing I would like to criticise in your picture:
The eyes seem to be a little bit blurry. It's just a personal opinion, but I would make them with clear borders, too (but keep the reflections as you did them, blurry).

Besides this I like how you shaded Sally's fur/hair. Since fur/hair itself is't that reflective as it's sometimes shown in Anime many people make it sometimes too shiny. You kept a very good balance here just highlighting it's edges.

The rest of the picture seems to be right. A lot of details in the background, Sally's proportions are correct and the hair is very detailed.
