The lighting on this is very interesting and unique, and you nailed the highlight effects for such, it really truly is stunning work. The work on the blood and it's placing is just right.
One thing I notice here is not a coloring fault or anything like that. It's something you may have intended but it's just bugging me: The cuff on Shadow's left arm (on the right side of the pic) is wrong, and the hand looks a bit strange, Just a bit! Also, the forehead marking on Shadow is, for lack of better words, cut off on the right side (his left.) about halfway up. Once again, not sure if it was intended. Also, though the background is amazing, the buildings and the pile of rubble stick out a TAD much as everything else is done with a soft style that those have a complete definite shape and colored with one single color, though it's moreso on the pile that it is.
Everything else about this pic is perfect! This is most certainly one of the most original Sonic and Shadow pieces I've seen since... Well.. I don't know. I encourage you to keep up the fantastic work!

Ouch. I like the idea behind this picture though! I like the unusual lighting effects where the the light source is the burning city behind them. I think their poses and expressions look quite realistic and I like the colouring technique again.

There seems to be too much contrast for the buildings in the background. It's okay because it creates a dramatic effect but it also makes the buildings look unrealistic and 2D rather than 3D in some cases.

I would have added some grey highlights in the rubble to show the outlines of a few objects.

There seems to me that there's too much white highlighting on Shadow's right leg and chest, and it looks like his fur is white or grey rather than black. (sonic's right leg appears to be about level with Shadow's right, yet it doesn't have much white shading on it at all.)

I would expect Shadow's glove cuff to be black with a red tounge, like his shoes, even without the ring. (I think that's why =Shadowknight731 said it was 'wrong') The tears in his glove and Sonic's shoe look too 3d and shiny, so they look like spikes rather than tears.

This is awesome!! I don't really see it as a result to a party, but more like they where fighting together when shadow had to use up all his power so sonic is helping him or something. Not like sonadow, ( I don't like sonadow) but more like an ally relashionship. You did a great job! But i can't really tell, is Shadow walking or is sonic just dragging him?
This is so amazing.
thank you for not doing any of the cliches you just pointed out
Okay, who invited Black Doom to that party?!
look like they did have an epic battle with someone both sonic and shadow are injured

I feel a really strong, brotherly connection inbetween these two especially through this picture.

Just beautiful! I love the lighting on this piece. Poor guys. They look so beat up, I wouldn't have thought of this as an "after party" type piece at all. I would have thought they'd just had a serious battle. Interesting how a title can make a world of difference.

And this is why we won't have a Shadow the Hedgehog 10th or 20th anniversary!

hey did people acutely watch the cartoon series cause I did and shadow was supposed to destroy Chris's world if recall maybe eggman managed to control shadow and was able to take over his body did you guys think of that~???? cause it was Dr.Geralled that created him to take over Maria's planet and during the show Shadow starts to ignore eggy's comands but he couldn't (to get to the point is that eggman might have gotten to control shadow in this picture and as you can see Sonic probably saved him by doing something for him to lose his power rings like a race or something) so anyways stop with "wtf" comments if you don't have anything to say about this persons work kay~?????

(sorry for those who didn't put rude comments on this picture^^;) and AWSOME PICTURE DUDE/DUDETTE~!!!!!!!
