      Got another one for you.

      Don't know who the artist is though.

  2. Well then I guess I'll just disagree with SEGA and Sonic Team then and say in my mind there is officially only one Sonic because there really is only one bloody Sonic.
  3. Here's a bunch of bloody useless details about Sonic 1 Sonic's design 

    -Scleras are more tall than wide
    -Slope of sclera tends to be harsher towards the centre of the face, curves out smoothly until peak 
    -Side of scleras are curved, and conform to shape of muzzle on bottom curve 
    -Bottom of centre sclera slope always curved smoothly, no skin ridge or fold
    -Pupils are totally black
    -Pupils are narrow and and a vertical ellipse
    -Nose short and an ellipse, becoming nearly flat in the middle parts
    -Muzzle extends beyond outline of sclera, smooth curve, curve at end always higher than curve that hosts nose at centre 
    -Gap in muzzle between upward curves is long and muted
    -Either has no mouth, or has one with smooth curve, dimple often large and noticible 
    -Ears are short and narrow smoothly with a curve to a peak, general triangular shape
    -Interior flesh part of ear's shape is synonymous, area between outer edge and flesh part is wide
    -Outer edge of ears follow curve of the outline of the sclera, meaning ear is at a higher altitude than sclera 
    -Ears' outermost horizontal point are just beyond muzzle 
    -Eyebrows either nonexistant or very muted, concentric with sclera outline 
    -Sclera on position farther away from viewer will have eyebrow ridge above it, almost always flanked with a layer of skin concentric with sclera, narrows smoothly closer to nose 
    -Top of head's curve is usually between halfway and the edge of the ear horizontally wise 
    -Proportion of abdomen height to head height (bottom of muzzle to top of top spike) is essentially 1:2 
    -Abdomen is slightly elongated sphere, top curve of sphere meshes into the curve of muzzle 
    -Horizontal length of abdomen goes from basically start of nose to end of muzzle 
    -Circle of skin very large, height of it almost as much as the abdomen itself, and length close to one of the sclera outlines 
    -Spines are generally short
    -Top spine and middle spine do not curve down
    -Bottom two spines tend to curve down more, especially bottom 
    -Two spines are on head, two on bottom
    -Spines are very thick, with the second top being the thickest, the top one being second thickest 
    -Top slopes of spines are much more curved, with the points of the spines being where the top slope of the spine becomes verticle and reaches the slight curve of the bottom slope 
    -Crease between second and third spine at height of muzzle 
    -Creases get closer to head and abdomen the futher down you go 
    -Large region on abdomen where no spines connect, roughly 3/10 of abdomen height exist below the connection point of the bottom spine 
    -Tail is long, and smoothly curved with a sharp edge at end, exists on part of abdomen curving where no spines connect 
    -Height of legs is 2/3 that of abdomen, and thus very stubby 
    -Legs quite narrow and noodly, consistent width entire way down
    -Transition point between legs and abdomen is quite harsh, basically a cylinder attached to a sphere 
    -Transition point of legs and abdomen are on bottom of sphere, and close together to each other 
    -Shoe cuffs are made of two cylinders, top not as wide as bottom 
    -Shoes are long (length is 5/2 the legs) and the height of them are taller than the cuffs
    -Shoes are curved triangular shape, the bottoms curving up very smoothly, top curivng down slowly, edge of shoe a curve 
    -Backs of shoes are a curve, curving out, then becoming less harsh with height decreasing, curving back in near the bottom, or simply straightening out in some art 
    -Stripes of shoes curve with manifold, and start beyond the cuff 
    -Shoes have no soles 
    -Buckles on outer sides of shoes, colour of them is white 
    -Arms start a short length below muzzle, their horizontal starting point near the edge of the muzzle but always within it 
    -Arms, like legs, are narrow and noodly, consistent width for entire length 
    -Length of arms nearly as long as abdomen 
    -Hands' cuffs have only one cylinder here, smooth circle 
    -Hands are very large, fingers simple and long, length of hand with inddex finger exposed nearly as long as height of head 

  4. There really is only one Sonic. The largest schism that will get people to divide Sonic is obviously Adventure, but it wasn't even that big of a design change. If you look at SoJ art through the 90's Sonic fluctuates in proportions but he does start to get slimmer in the Saturn era. It's been noted on SSMB before that the main reason for Sonic's adventure design was so he would work better in 3D, so he got a bit slimmer so his back would be easier to see. Sonic was always meant to be treated as the same entity, but Generations was where I think the classic vs modern really came alight. This is an honest question: how did people treat Sonic's designs pre-Adventure and post-Adventure before Generations? And how many people called pre-Adventure "classic Sonic"? I've always wondered how most people treated it before Generations came along. And like Indigo says above modern Sonic, along with classic fluctuated in proportions and details between every single game. I think one thing to take away is that Sonic's changes in design are a lot more "long-term" in duration of change if you know what I mean, more of a transition than a jarring change. Like I said Sonic's changes in Adventure came from several years of making Sonic slimmer and taller to work in 3D better. If you look at Sonic The Fighters Sonic his legs are a bit longer than they were before. If you look at Jam's model, his legs are also longer here than previously, so his running would be easier to make out. If you look at the artwork for Sonic from the same time, you'll notice his legs and spines are longer than before. Also a more subtle thing here, but his cuffs are starting to resemble Adventure Sonic's more, with how they fold out more. This art made very close to the time of Adventure shows many traits of Adventure Sonic such as the spines that fold down immediately, the more curved shoes, the more wavy ears, the eyebrows, the long curvy legs and all that. And of course we can't forget these The true moment of Sonic transitioning into his Adventure design. Right now everyone tends to like the dichotomy but just looking at the SoJ art you can tell this was just a natural evolution and it was always meant to be the same Sonic.
  5. You know, I like Roger Smith and Ryan Drummond just fine but now that I think about it I don't think I've ever really heard a voice that fits Sonic perfectly, at least how I picture his voice in my head. Like I always imagined Sonic would have a more ratty sorta voice, you know what I mean? 

    Like, this is a bit out of the blue, but I honestly really like this Sonic voice, I think this fits him quite well. At least classic Sonic. 

    1. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      I think something like that works better for classic sonic than RCS's version, but I don't think that voice would fit well on modern sonic.

    2. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      Perhaps not. That's why I said at least classic Sonic anyway. That guy would work really good in a classic Sonic animation I think. 

  6. For some reason I keep thinking about how everyone basically treated me like shit at both school and camp several years back and I don't know what to make of it. Did I deserve it? Was I too weird? I don't know why I'm thinking about it so much. 

    1. Kool Kirb

      Kool Kirb

      Ik how you feel man. I went through the same thing growing up with my family and going to school and both treated me and to an extent still treat me the same way. I'm not sure why either. I guess maybe because I'm myself instead of giving into and becoming what everyone else wants me to be. I don't like being made fun of because of it but I don't regret being who I am.

    2. Kiah

      Kiah

      I don't think anyone deserves to be mistreated and disrespected at all. Being weird doesn't warrant it. I'm sorry that happened to you and I've been there. I didn't get it and I still don't get it to this day.

      If anything it really influenced me and strengthened my resolve to try to always be nice and definitely respectful towards others as I did not want to do to others what was done to me in that regard because it's terrible and makes one feel such. 

    3. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      Honestly I'm wondering if it was one of the things that made me a lot more bitter towards people. 

    4. Kiah

      Kiah

      That's very possible as that was how I initially felt after going through that. And I was terrible and did not hide my bitterness too often believe it or not. I think that is a natural inclination to have that be the effect on you considering how negative and detrimental it can be.

      That didn't last long in my life fortunately and I made some major adjustments in regards to my thinking attitude and my actions. I really needed to do that. 

  7. You know what would be a cool Sonic stage? One set in a cold desert climate, so you could have features of a desert but also one of a snowy wasteland at the same time or working in synergy with one another.

      WELL I FORGOT ABOUT THAT ONE I'M JUST A MAN

      Weather changes would be nice too.

    4. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      What about a zone that takes place in a big north American type forest with giant sequoia type trees and shit like that, Yellowstone themed 

    5. The Deleter

      The Deleter

      A NA-based stage like that would be nice, yeah

      It's feels like all we're composed of are cities and highways to Sonic Team tbh :Y

      Autumn level please

      And a rainy level too. I don't care if is "too dark and moody for Sonic" let me have my dark rainy level.

      rain is beautiful dammit

      I always felt mushroom Hill kinda took slight inspiration from that kinda autumn changing forest locale 

  8. Wow, even the music is terrible. You really did done fucked up SEGA. Why is the zone so damn blocky and straight?? Generations' Green Hill Zone destroys this crap.
  9. One thing I like about Mecha Sonic is how he actually used his spiny design for attack. Not just spindashing but how he would try and ram into you backfirst and fucking impale you. I like Metal Sonic as much as the next person but Mecha Sonic is just so awesome in every way, in my opinion he's honestly a lot more intimidating than Metal Sonic, how he destroys the teleporter right under you, then stops and towers over you. I kinda wish Mecha Sonic would come back, or at least a modification/advancement of his design, it's too good to just use once. 

    1. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      Honestly, I find Mecha pretty overrated. Yeah, his design's cool, and he's a step up from Silver Sonic, but he's still pathetically easy and couldn't survive one game.

      I'd rather they just utilize Metal in more creative ways and give him some of Mecha's attributes.

    2. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      Is he really that overrated? 

      And pathetically easy? Metal Sonic's race is pathetically easy, I don't understand what the difficulty of their fights has to do with this. If we wanted to rate the Sonic robots' coolness on difficulty, then Sonic 2's Mecha Sonic is by far the coolest. I prefer how Mecha actually spindashes and shit, it's a lot cooler than most of the stuff Metal does (besides the chest laser, but Mecha has one of those too, so eh). 

      And Mecha survives a thrashing from Sonic, survives a fall thousands of feet on a collapsing tower, then comes back unscathed and tries to destroy Knuckles. Metal ran into a wall and died. Please. 

    3. Forte-Metallix

      Forte-Metallix

      No, Metal rammed into a wall and shut down, but his body remained intact enough to fix. He always survives his battles. Mecha's body was blown to bits after Knuckles defeated him. There wasn't enough left of him to make into a toaster.

      And Mecha's Super form wasn't particularly impressive since Knuckles took him out singlehandedly- and this is when Knuckles had almost no combat experience. Meanwhile, Metal Overlord took no less than twelve highly-skilled heroes to destroy. And his body still came out of it completely unscathed.

      mecha sonic returns in lego dimensions, so i guess he's not entirely forgotten

    5. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      Alright you got me with the body thing, I legit did forget that Eggman uses pretty much the same shell every game, I thought he had to be rebuilt after CD. Still though, Eggman had to electronically power him up in 4 to get him to function again. It took a lot more for Mecha to initially shutdown and he didn't need any help to power up again. Still Metal does outlive him. 

      Metal Overlord is powerful but he needed a shitload of stuff to function it, and remember this is Neo Metal Sonic who I'm assuming was modified a lot by Eggman in the first place? Just saying. 

      So yeah I concede Metal is stronger and in the long run more durable. Still I like Mecha a bit more though, he has more of an impression on me. 

      Also though, you have to remember Knuckles did destroy Mecha but this was the same game where he could punch Sonic straight out of Super form. The rules were a bit different at that time. 

  10. I still want a game where you are an arthropod and you fight other arthropods. I want to be a tarantula hawk and fight a japanese giant hornet. Someone bloody make it happen already. 

  11. Did you know Sonic is only running at 240.64 mph when he runs up the chain at CD at peelout 

    1. TCB

      TCB

      ... I did not

    2. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Huh. I'm conflicted on these results.

    3. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      Yeah, that video is where I got all the ideas to do this in the first place, but it really isn't as fast as you'd think. Just watching the cutscene though it makes sense it's not that fast though as the whole place isn't that big actually. 

    4. Kiah

      Kiah

      "Only" lol. I know for Sonic that's very slow but that's cool to know!

    5. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      The thing is that he doesn't know how long the chain itself actually is because he never bothered to figure it out. 

  12. Alright I'm redoing my Sonic CD calculations stuff and so the mountain Sonic stands on is 309.8811875 feet tall and the mountain with the chain attached to it is 670.1290536 feet tall. There's gonna be a test folks. 

    1. Kiah

      Kiah

      Spare me and give me my F now please...

      I'm so not going to remember that. 

    2. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Can I round up

    3. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      YOU'LL GET PARTIAL CREDIT 

  13. You know, this may sound depressing and it's obviously not a representative of everyone, but I decided to look up "how much do your parent's argue?" because mine do so often, and basically the responses I see in multiple places is just about everyone's parent's either fight day in and day out or they are divorced, and it just makes me think, what's the point in even trying to get in a relationship or married or anything? It just seems like statistically if I end up liking anyone and having a relationship we'll end up hating each other's guts. So what's even the point? May as well save myself the hassle. I dunno. 

    1. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      I think if you look up something like that, you're kinda bound to find more responses towards the "arguing all the time" side. I don't think that's truly representative of the norm. Speaking for myself, my parents almost never argue or fight and they don't even strike me as passionately in love or an exceptional couple, honestly.

    2. ShroomZed

      ShroomZed

      That's true I guess, but the whole thing just makes me feel a bit sick. 

    3. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      Yeah, I totally getcha. It certainly disturbs me too.

    4. Kiah

      Kiah

      Eh it's nothing predetermined as one doesn't have to be argumentative even amid the odds. My parents seem to fuss on a daily basis and they are still together after 33 years and I really don't get that. Keep in mind that no relationship is perfect and some disagreements and arguments are bound to happen. Relationships can be a wonderful thing or the worst considering how the couple treats one another. 

      But I'm at a point in my life where I don't even feel like being bothered with it all so don't mind my ramblings. 

    5. Speederino

      Speederino

      I know this is late but whatevs. I see similar situations in my own life: my parents are horrible to each other and most of the relationships I've seen in my family have gone really poorly. As the youngest, that's definitely daunting. But I view all these mess-ups as a guide on what not to do in a relationship. I'm determined to take those lessons to heart and not make the same mistakes (which more or less comes down to awful communication and rushing relationships).

      There's ALWAYS gonna be struggles, but take that as a sign that it's worth it because none of the good stuff in life comes easily.

  14. I think the draw bad Sonic topic is getting a new contribution soon 

    1. Dee Dude

      Dee Dude

      I surprised anyone even remembers that.

    2. Monkey Destruction Switch

      Monkey Destruction Switch

      I loved that topic. It was fun to see such unrestrained creativity toward such a strange end.

      Excited to see what you have in store!

    You know, for a while I've actually found the idea of a really lanky Sonic to be very appealing despite my disdain for Boom's design. Boom doesn't do it right. 

    1. Polkadi

      Polkadi

      It just fits for a runner. Lanky people run fast.

    2. Soni

      Soni

      Where's the sports tape? Where's the neckerchief? This is all wrong!

    3. Kiah

      Kiah

      Boom doesn't do a lot right...

      Seriously though you are on a roll with these drawings!
