Now explain to me why a fighter character like Knux hasn't made it into Mario Smash???

Knuckles also has a lot of untapped cultural history and heritage which is why Tikal kind of made her way into my train of thought.

Let's also not mention how Shadow got his own game before a veteran character like Knux >_<

I like the lighting a lot -- it's pretty bright and bold and has a lot of impact. I like that you used the lighter, kinda pastel-y tones -- I think it makes for an interesting effect. Kind of give things a bit of a dreamy feel.

I like their expressions. I like Knuckles' serious, tough guy look -- and the little cloud coming from his hands, showing that he's punched one hand into the palm of the other.

Tikal's expression is pretty strong, too -- that kinda melancholy look on her face.

Nice job. : )

I agree with literally everything you just said omg. Have thought these same things at one point or another. I was so sure he was gonna make it into this Smash Bros, too. ):

Also your color palettes always seem to have some thought put into them, no matter how complex or simple the draw.

Funny coincidence: Happened to be looking up Tikal pics and then saw your most recent upload is a pic of Knux and Tikal! XD
I'm so happy to see this out of you! Unusual medium; sets it apart from most pics of these two.

Nice job!

Knuckles got his own game time ago in the 90's, along with the Chaotix, but only a few know about that game :(

But, technically, isn't Shadow older than him? He was made in a time before Sonic & co, and is claimed to be immortal (which makes me wonder that, if he were immortal, why can you die as in the game). So, in a way, it's sort of Wolverine thing.

That may be the case in their fiction world but in our world, Knux has been around longer real time.

True. Maybe they will.

It's so true... the world may never know! All we can do is hope for an unannounced unlockable Knux in Sm4sh!
