In the same vein as my last journal entry about my top five best Sonic covers, I thought I'd share what I believe to be the top five worst Sonic covers. Here goes! :p



#5



Sonic #148

A homage to Sonic Battle, this cover is a throwback to a style that never really caught on. The characters are so blocky and jagged that they lose some of their appeal, and the striped purple background is particularly hard on the eyes. Doesn't exactly encourage me to play the game.



#4



Sonic #100

What happened here? It says "Spaz" on the cover and the drawing suggests his work, but the colouring just screams "Somebody dun' goofed up!" The inking is terrible and everyone is shaded in such strong, rounded increments that they look totally unnatural. The bland, desaturated cover collage reminds me of something I'd see at a chip shop. A terrible disappointment for the 100th issue.


#3



Sonic #156

You have to laugh. If you don't, you'll never stop crying. Sally's expression is so vacant, she looks like she's on drugs or something, and her swollen lips are enough to make Angelina Jolie jealous. Sanford didn't adjust Bunnie and Amy's facial structure properly for the angle, and Fiona's hair is the wrong flippin' colour!




#2



Sonic #255

Tyler Capps, you had one chance to get the variant cover right for this issue... and you blew it! Not only do the Freedom Fighters appear too lanky here, but the composition is so lazy and unimaginative that Capps probably just phoned this one in. Matt Herms must have had his work cut out for him to make this cover look remotely interesting, but you know what they say: "You can't polish dog shit."

AAAAAAAAARRRGH!!

I don't do requests or trades. New commissions are suspended until further notice because of work. If the situation changes, I'll announce it in my journal and make my status clearer henceforth. Thank you for your interest.
