<<EDIT>> changed the file so it's a bit smaller. ;)

It's official.

I love this new painting style.


I was doodling in school earlier today a drawing like this, but of Blaze. I got annoyed, and threw it at ~Aliceloveszombies' friend. Then I got home and tried again. I really don't know how she transformed from Blaze to Marine, but whatever.

It's undefined what abilities Marine possesses, as shown at the end of Sonic Rush Adventure. (final boss fight) She fires off a blueish orb, but never says what it is. Some think it's telekinesis, like Silver. Others, hydrokinesis. Will we ever know?

SEGA needs to come out with a Sonic Rush Adventure 2 or something. :XD:

Marine the Raccoon SEGA/Sonic Team
Artwork =CyberImpact

Used Manga studio for the lines, Easy Paint Tool Sai for the "paintings", and Photoshop Elements 7 for effects
Total time: (without breaks) 3 hours

This is my second time drawing her. My first was this horrible thing: [link]

I think that the most enchanting thing about this is just how calm Marine looks; she seems more mature and elegant. The title is very fitting as well, as this power is a "secret".

Setting this at night or early morning makes Marine's bright colours stand out. The shading is very smooth and you used a good technique.

Marine's hands are almost perfect, it's just the pinkie finger on her left hand looks a little long, but other than that, they look great.

I would have to criticize her head though, it would probably look better if it was more circular.

Your art has improved a lot since I last looked at your gallery.
I can say that using Marine for this was a good choice, but if you were considering doing it again as Blaze, I would definitely say to give Blaze a crafty look, as if to "mirror" Marine.
What do you think?

I hate when they introduce new characters and then just die / vanish / are forgotten.
Kind of like with Vanilla, Rouge, Wave, and Shade.

Or they make a new character that doesn't follow in line with canon of the games.
Like Quake Woman, Sally Acorn and Cosmo the Seedrian.

wait, all of those listed are strong independent women.....

I was noticing that. :XD: And it's strange how it seems to only be the women who go missing. Aren't we all equal?! *is shot*

SEGA seems to make a lot of characters that appear once or twice, and then are never heard from again. I'd really like to see Marine in another video game, and hopefully, with a voice actor. XD

There are so many things Marine could do with water...
Put out fires.
water plants to make em grow
use water to cool of her mates in the desert
thaw ice
make ice by throwing it onto something really cold.
(Sonic and tails make whirlwind in a cold place, Marine adds water turns into ice and then Knuckles punches it and they ride it!)
