  1. I can’t find a source on this at all but I’m sure I’ve read somewhere there’s a mandate that states ‘Sonic can’t show both his teeth and tongue at the same time in official artwork’ or something to that extent.
  2. Finished this last night, been working on it on/off the last week. I’ve never tried imitating the classic Sonic style before so had literally no fucking idea what I was doing pretty much the entire time but it came together in the end somehow lol edit: on mobile and no idea why my text has got black highlights but it looks good so slay I guess
  3. I mean... I don’t think it’s as simple as just walking in there and asking... is it? Can I just do that? Or is that weird?
  4. Oh hey Climax Studios, it’s right above my work (wagamama), I often get some of the staff come in for lunch so it’s cool that they once pitched a Sonic game.

    Mega Man

    I’m not strong enough to read the OP I posted in 2009 More Megaman in Smash is a good thing, Duff McWhalen assist trophy when?
  6. How many years have these monthly wallpapers been going now? I remember getting excited about these in my early teens... I’d be devastated if they ever stopped.
  7. You don’t *need* permission since it’s technically fan art but out of respect for the artist you should ask. I’d be pretty pissed off if someone tattooed my fan art without asking to be honest. To the point though, it’s a really nice design that would look good as a tattoo.
  8. Isn't that the Sonic 2 HD logo? You should probably ask for permission from the guy who created it before getting it done.
  9. After the piss poor treatment of Power Puff Girls and Wacky Races... I'm not sure I want them back
  10. I haven't made a thread here in years... scared... A lot of you may remember me as 'Professor J', I've had that username since like 2005 (before that it was SonicBlitz *cringe*) and I've hated it pretty much ever since so as sad as I am to see it go its time for a change. So please allow me to reintroduce myself, I've been drawing Sonic fan art since basically forever. I've drawn loads of artwork for the Sonic Show over the years, I used to get commissioned by AAUK (former SEGA community manager) to draw for Sonic Wrecks and I used to help run the Sonic Showcase Network (hence my staff member tag WHICH YOU BETTER NEVER EVER TAKE AWAY FROM ME ;_;) Let's cut straight to it anyway, here is some of the more recent artwork I've drawn- I drew this for the tenth anniversary of the Sonic Show (I drew the logo too some many years ago btw fun fact). It's actually a remake of another piece of artwork I drew for the show over a decade ago... that is depressing! (you can see the original artwork here btw -> https://professor-j.deviantart.com/art/Concept-TSS-Sonic-2-70626146) I wanted to keep the edgy look of the original art style (aka i dont know how to use photoshop) but bring it into a sleeker modern style. I wanted to do a whole Classic Sonic project for the 25th anniversary... I didn't lol... and I ended up just drawing Sonic and Amy but I really liked how this turned out. I changed the colouring style on this like 3 times before just settling on flat colours, I kinda wish I had shaded it like the classic artwork though tbh. Here was Amy from the same project, I'm not overly keen on this one to be honest, something feels really off about it and I don't like the higher Chao's hand on it's face, i cba to go back and change it now though hahah This is my most recent artwork, Jay the owner of the Sonic Show asked me to design a tattoo for him and we settled on a recreation of the iconic SA2B intro scene. The actual tattoo obviously isn't coloured in SA style but I liked the artwork so much that I wanted to create a finished version of it. I'm so used to colouring in this style in the more modern Sonic Channel way so it was difficult to get all the little nuances right in this older version of the style. --- BONUS OLD ARTWORK --- This fucking thing. I drew this in 2008, since then I have seen it spread across the internet, mostly with my signature cropped out (ew why did i sign sonic fan art that was a remake of official art) and on countless YouTube videos. Truth is, I hate it, I think it's awful, it looks so flat and lifeless and off model but I wanted to show it here anyway since it's like a proper legacy piece for me hahahah. AAUK once told me that some staff members at SEGA had it as their backgrounds because they thought it was official LOL. I'd love to do a modern version tbh, I might see if I can get it done for halloween this year... This was my winning entry for the Sonic & All Stars Transformed graffiti contest back in the day, you can actually see this artwork on the Graffiti City track. That hand couldn't physically look more rigid in retrospect and I forgot some arrows on the halfpipe (which I noticed long after I submitted and wanted to die) but overall I think its a really cool design and obviously I'm super happy I won.
  11. ugh why does my avatar lose its transparency when i upload it 

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Why is your avatar the Sonic Cult Amy Chao?

      Can't help with the transparency issue. I'm not even sure if transparent avatars are supported.

    2. goku262002


      It's not yours, its Sonic Cults. Site may be dead but respect where respect is due.

      Second, the avatars have issues with transparency. its why no one here uses them.

      @goku262002 Aren't like 90% of us using avatar we didn't create ourselves? Mine is an edit of some of Ken Penders' awful art that someone at Retro made and I shamefully stole and pasted over a Sonic 2 gif (also shamefully stolen). There's really no issue with him using Any Chao. I just thought it was funny to see it show up after so many years.

      I’ve literally used an Amychao as my avatar here for over a decade ?? I used to change the face on it to random things all the time but it’s always been an Amychao. It’s not stolen from Sonic Cult, it’s out of respect to Sonic Cult cos that was the first forum I joined back in 2004 ? chill.

      ugh annoying about the transparency, I swear my old avatar was transparent but I just never updated it since 2009 lol

    5. Zaysho


      Transparency doesn't work on the regular themes, but it does show on the dark themes.

    6. Cortez


      Ah ok that explains it, thanks ??

    7. Zaysho


      Also, you were on Sonic Cult since '04? I joined there around '03 with Heroes hype haha

    8. Cortez


      Yeah but I was like literally 13 at the time and had the mentality of a typical 13 year old sonic fan... my username was ‘Sonic Blitz’ I think I got banned like 3 times ahahaha

  12. Oh, they changed the style again. I really like this, it's been a while since we've seen a style with clean line art like this. Kinda looks like some amalgamation of the Adventure, Battle and Riders style. Though it makes me wonder why they don't just go with the actual 'Sonic Adventure' style rather than something so close to it.
  13. Truly terrifying I guess this is from a late game scene with those hundreds of avatars in the background. Good job making them look individual ???
  14. This game feels like more of a fan game than Mania... I just don't really get it, it's like they've thrown EVERYTHING together to try and appeal to every aspect of the fan base and ultimately ended up creating this big alienating mess than doesn't really have any identity of it's own. Despite it's short comings Generations was a beautifully presented love letter to the franchise, this is just some fan fiction-esque amalgamation of ideas that manages to rub me up the wrong way with every new reveal of information. Like I said, I just don't 'get' this.
  15. No thank you @ that art style Cute artwork though, just really don't like the style
  16. I have a spare European Genesect code if anyone wants it?
  17. I had multiples I traded Orangurus for lol. I was just naive to assume that Dittos nicknamed '6IV' would actually have 6IVs ??
  18. Honestly FUCK the GTS, just traded away a my spare Cosmog, Type: Null and Solgaleo for '6IV' Dittos that weren't even remotely close to being that. Fuck people.
  19. Love it. Like others have said some of the best Sonic clothing that's ever been released. I want it all.
  20. This is important. Olly Sykes of Bring me the Horizon's clothing brand 'Drop Dead' announces this morning that it's collaborating with Sonic the Hedgehog to celebrate the 25th anniversary. The collection will be available to order from 12pm today. I love Drop Dead, the clothes and accessories they make are amazing and so much more in your face cool than anything you would ever find on the high street. Their Itchy and Scratchy collection was one of the best things I've ever seen clothing wise and the Gremlins collection was just as good. Colour me excited for this. They've done a SEGA collaboration before featuring Golden Axe and Ecco clothes so to wake up to this today was a pleasant surprise. I'll post pictures of the collection here when it's revealed at noon.
  21. I've got 2 spare EU Darkrai codes if anyone wants them? If you have a spare 20th Mew to exchange for one it wouldn't go unappreciated cos I can't not have the full collection ???
  22. Anyone got a spare Mew from the event earlier this year? Wanted to get them all but ugh completely forgot to go to Game and get the code while it was active and now I feel like I'm missing out ?? I have other Mews, I just wanted the complete anniversary collection... Have shinies and things I can offer in exchange.
  23. I'm really surprised at how much I'm enjoying Blue after all these years. I was dreading it in the run up to it's release because I just thought it must be an absolute slog to play through and I figured the modern games would have spoiled me with all the new features and streamlining but for a 20 year old game it's actually not that bad at all. edit: I have no idea why half the text of this post is a larger size lol
  24. I had a dream last night that the final DLC character was SpongeBob due to his extensive history on Nintendo consoles. ...Visions of the future ?
  25. I realised this straight after I posted it... In any case it's still strange that she appears here at all.
