Renae De Liz (http://www.GoldenGoatStudios.com/Renae) started drawing comics because of Sonic the Hedgehog, so this is a childhood dream come true. She's currently pencilling issue #198 and is loving it.

Renae's Bio: I was born in Anchorage, Alaska, moved around in California and Oregon, and finally settled in Kansas with my beautiful son Tycen.

I'm a huge fan of zombie and scary, scary cave movies (which should be its own genre), video games, drawing, cooking, watching my fat cats gobble food, reading, and eating lots of bread.

And here's a quick note from Renae about working on the book so far:

Hi guys!

I thought I'd share some pages from Sonic the Hedgehog #198! I'm so excited about this, this was THE book I loved as a kid that got me into comics in the first place waaaaay back in the early nineties during the Sonic 2 days of yore. The whole series has an extra special place with me.

There has been some learning curve, Archie uses traditional inkers most the time, so I needed to make sure I used a VERY light pencil, which I'm not used to yet ( which is why the scans might look a bit odd due to darkening in photoshop) and learning where to roughly place word balloons. Also, trying to learn to keep the page in fit condition for the inker is hard for me No more eating spaghetti over my pages I guess.

Anyway, I got permission to post a few pages. Let me know what you think!

Here are some preview pages:

Congratulations, Nae! Does this mean you don't want me harassing top comic company execs on your behalf anymore? ;)

Nice work. Reminds me of a mix of James Fry and Sam Maxwell. It almost saddens me to not be working on the title anymore. Best of luck!

This looks great on all counts! The first cover I ever colored was for a Knuckles comic and I've always been a Sonic fan, but never really bought the comics, but I think I'll start picking them up now!
