I don't normally do much fan art- but the recent Sonic Generations demo made me. It made me I tell you!

Classic Sonic or GTFO ;)

This piece has so much dynamic, style and emotion.. like the ol' Sonic lol! :XD:

No seriously the detail here it's just top notch, the BG, the blur, the ground dust goin' up , the pose.. everything looks awesome here, kudos to you for this awesome piece! :D

Thanks, man. In hindsight I may have made his spines/quills/hair too long- and the underside of his shoes are actually red... My bad. But I'm glad you like it all the same!

I like modern too, but regardless this a great piece.

Got to your dA from a comment on Sonic Retro.

Thanks man, I know he's still popular- especially here on DA but modern Sonic is just too... irritating for my tastes. And I've had too many bad experiences with the 3D games (except Generations 'cos I haven't played it yet). Been loving Sonic CD since it's re-release though!

Give Sonic Generations a shot, granted I'm a fan of the older blur and MOST of his games (really, there's stuff that doesn't fly with me either, namely 2006) but the game is just very enjoyable , besides that Classic Sonic was really great in that game.

Yeah, I've been meaning to play it- though why Sonic would want to save his friends still confuses me- with the exception of maybe Knuckles, Tails and Amy they all need sticking in a blender. And that's only because once upon a time they didn't speak :)

Mute Sonic is good Sonic. Anywho- I did enjoy the classic stage of the demo. The 'Modern Sonic' stage was just a case of holding down the boost button and listening to him shout 'Woo' a lot.

Don't worry, there's more platforming in the later stages of the game for Modern, besides that, if you see your fastest time on Modern, it should be around 2:10 or something.
Some people managed to squeeze out 1.52 or so, there's a lot of different paths for Modern. Have fun!

You really managed to make him look like he's actually running, I always fail at that :XD:Those hands are amazing too!

The most impressive thing about this is how much form you managed to make him have. Oftentimes classic Sonic is depicted a bit flatly compared to his modern counterpart, because of the simpler design. Seriously, kudos for such epic form while still following the CD design spot on!

That's not to say nothing else about this is great. I love the pose, it's visually striking but playful at the same time (a quality I quite admire about classic Sonic). The speed effects on the ground, his shoes, and the dust (plus the hints of grass and earth being thrown into the air) are very convincing without being overdone. I think that's what really makes this whole piece great--striking without being overdone. It looks like official art.

Incredibly impressive hands btw!

I know what you mean- I wonder if him being 2D was the reason for his alteration in the (old) cartoon series? He only had one row of quills which looked a bit dumb. I imagine he was drawn like that to make the artists lives a bit easier though. Always used to bug me anyway.

Thanks for the kind words though, sir- I indeed wanted to capture Sonic's older charm- the bright colours and the rounded shapes and the idea he just loves running for the hell of it. None of this skater boi 'radical dude' mentality for me! Anywho- thanks again!

Heck yeah, that's the way Sonic should be. And I don't blame them at all for simplifying his spikes for animation-sake, but I still hated it too, haha.

Yea Sonic CD was a wicked game though I much prefered the European and Japanese version just due to the amazing music XD

Totally agree. Sonic CD on the gamecube mega collection just wan't the same compared to the ol' european mega CD one.

Thanks man. I've tried to base him on the way he looked during the Sonic CD cutscenes.

This is the Sonic that I remember, before he had the green eyes and all of the anime/emo crap added in.
