    Both classic sonic and Tails are unbearably cute. Shame we couldn't have got a classic knuckles and Amy too.

    So much of what tails does in AoStH is adorable, making him a younger/babyish character was a great move for that series.

    *in hushed whispered tones* I actually think Eggman's '06 design is pretty cool. Especially in the opening cutscene. Apart from the nipple buttons I think it's pretty badass.

    just a quick though about AoStH and satAM sonic's having mohawks, it may be down to wanting to save time and money by having less quills to draw rather than an attempt to copy the american design.
    Back then companies did everything possible to save money and get the product made as cheaply aspossible, drawing three spines rather than six on the main character for about a hundred 20 minutes episodes, 12 frames a second, weird as it sounds is a massive saving.

    I'm definitely a fan of japanese sonic over Americass, I've just never been bothered by him, some people seem genuinely bothered by him whereas to me he's just never been a problem.
     
    There was a time when the artwork used to promote games was almost always radically different to what was in the games, mostly due to technical  limitations of the game, but these weird pieces of artwork are never described as another version of the character like assface seems to be referred to.
     

     
    I've always just lumped assface in with these weird pieces of artwork.

    Am I the only one that doesn't think american is actually another design? Can't say I ever thought that was the  case as a child, my copy of sonic 1had japanese, sonic 2 had American, but seeing as it was just the cover art it never bothered me, I was more concerned with how sonic looked in the game....
     
    So if
    looks like
     
    and
     
     looks like
     
     
    then......
     

    What's the problem?

    I think we should be called

     
    seriously though, "Sonic Fan" is fine, I've always found all those labels Brony, Twi-hard, Monsters, Frogs whatever.....cringey as hell

    iDEATH got a reaction from KingScoopaKoopa in Are there only 7 Chaos Emeralds?   
    There are 7 emeralds but it's easy to see why someone would think there are multiples given how completely messed up they are in the games,sometimes they're lying around, sometimes in special stages, sonic has them all one minute then none the next.
     
    But yeah, it's all but 100% certain that there's 7.
     
    In Sonic one we can assume Sonic just doesn't get all the emeralds, as for sonic the fighters, I've never understood why people say it's non canon because there's 8 emeralds, one of the fighters you take on is a clone so wouldn't it be fair to assume the emerald is a clone too? Tails makes fake emeralds in SA2 so why is it not considered to be something like that?

    iDEATH got a reaction from SurrealBrain in Smurfs: The Lost Village - Coming 2017   
    I'm not really a fan of the smurfs in any case, but from this image alone, it at least looks a lot nicer than the cgi/live action films...though...is that even worth pointing out at this point? Of course it looks better than those flicks....

    Shame they didn't recolour him, he could have also been the first Sonic OC.
     
    Cool bit of trivia though...now I kinda want to track this down.

    iDEATH got a reaction from Oscillo in Mass Internet censorship to go live in the UK   
    So apparently this has stemmed from a campaign the Daily Mail has been running for the past while? Their "War on Porn"?
     
    So the government is now taking advice, and putting actual policy into practice based on the most idiotic, knuckledragging, homophobic, racist, bigoted piece of shit in print? Nice one Dave.
     
    It may also interest you to know that today, the Mail ran an article claiming it had "won the war on porn" mere pages away from pictures of a 17 year old girl in a Bikini and an invitation to go online and ogle her some more?

     
    Reminds me of a game Graeme Linehan used to say he'd play. On any day the daily mail runs a story about a peadophille, calling him/her scum and calling for castration, go on thier website and search for the term "She's all grown up".
    You'll be greeted with countless articles about the nubile duaghters of celebs celebrating their sixteenth birthday.
    "Look, *insert celeb's name here*'s daughter has turned sixteen, we can look at her tits! Everybody....look! Her tits!".

    iDEATH reacted to The KKM in Fleetway Design Conventions   
    I think this one works because for all the "yeah he's badass evil", he also feels genuinely flawed? He needs assistants, does stupid decisions, often ends up with his butt kicked to him, and by the time he begins approaching critical levels of competency in evil, he's also approaching critical levels of insane nihilism.

    also personally I prefer Nigel Dobbyn's old colouring work, his digital feels too sterile. Love his inkwork though.

    is this a good place to bring up the StC redesigns I commissioned freelance-who-works-with-Archie artist Ben Bates to do?

    If you ever read the series you're in for a treat. Captain Plunder's one of the most enjoyable characters in the whole series.

    I actually quite liked the varying styles for the original characters in STC, I thought it gave quite a bit of variety to the world. Wheras the archie originals all feel a bit samey to me, there was a lot of variation in body types and style between the STC cast.
     
    I get that a lot of them were fairly humanoid but I think there was enough traditionalc sonic body types for it to never seem like Sonic and co were out of place.
     

    Characters like Captain Plunder were probably the most notably un-sonic and yeah, I guess the design could be kind of jarring but even as a kid I never felt it was totally out of place.
     

    The leaf was one character that had a pretty traditional Sonic look to him. The face was a little off but the body type and general look was pretty much the same.
     

     
    Hobson and Choy were a couple of characters that I think got the best of both worlds, neither have quite the traditional Sonic look but I think they emulate it well enough while delivering a bit of the STC detailed, un-sonic style to be a good cross section. I really wish they'd shown up more.
     
    Even if you're not a fan of the overall style, you've got to admit that STC had some pretty cool unique looking designs for their supporting characters, even if they weren't too Sonicy.
    Frankly I'd take a thousand characters like ebony, porker lewis and fabian vane over the bland and ugly characters Mick McMahon populated his strips with

    I love the troopers, they've got a much more serious, scary look to them than the SWATbots and it matches the tone of the comic really well.
     
    As for the Nazi reference, they might not be directly influenced by the, but the Nazi uniform has seeped into common useage as a villain design so it's morel likely a variation on that trope than a direct reference.
