What if we got this?

I'd honestly prefer this. It looks so much better with beige arms 

I would say it's better at least. The neck needs to be removed, the mouth needs fixing.... and would prefer the shoes replaced and socks added.

Saw this on Sonic Retro. Is getting closer to the right idea maybe.... Just add bigger eyes to go with it like from the other idea example. Mix both ideas together basically.

So Sonic officially is rocking a pair of Nike's now. No surprises there, and I can officially start the clock on how long it takes for the Swoosh marketing team to try and sell me a pair.

(Honestly, I'd buy them - I just hope they arn't so limited run that they are impossible to get even from scalpers like the last PUMA kicks)

 

Other than that, I keep seeing "could of been worse" which is a backhanded compliment. If that's the best you can muster, then you missed the mark. Glad we dodged the beady eyes bullet, but there is just so much here that I can only hope looks better in motion. I'm kind of scared to see him talk/emote with that mouth. Can't tell if its a maw or a muppet trap.

That's pretty cool. The socks should be shorter, tho. Make the arms beige

I guess i'll quote the OVA, but remove the question at the end.

Spoiler

STRANGE!

The first image i saw (the one from the style guide) I thought "Ehh, It can work, it's not that bad, it reminds me of '06, it can work" , then I saw this render and I'm like "Excuse me how even?!?"

It actually says likable.  The image on the TSSZ website says that.

And yet I wouldn't be surprised if "lickable" is what they wanted to say.

Let's put this into contextualization:

Even Ken Penders, the man behind such abominations as The Lara-Su Chronicles, wants nothing to do with this design. This is surely uniting even the unexpected.

No even Ken is smarter, sure he is a bane and a pox on the franchise but he is still a smart guy.... terrible writer and artist but still smart.

Hmm... something else I just thought of.

Sonic normal model has elongated arms, and cartoonishly large hands, enabling him a greater range of motion. This movie render scales that waaaaay back and gives him a pair of limbs more proportional to his body size.

Thats going to seriously hinder Sonic's ability to do much of anything with his upper body.

Look at him. He can barely reach over his head. He won't really be able to carry anything of real size and even basic things like hanging from ledges or spinning around horizontal bars really becomes an animation challenge. Sonic's usual model let him do things like carry humans around if he had too. This thing won't be able to do that.

The "leaked render" may be an early design because the shoes are different. No Nike logo and the they don't have the white trims/soles PicsArt_03-04-09_53_31.thumb.jpg.bbe836e81178eaaa89e2b5c5a5a285e9.jpg

 

Also the face is a Hi-res version of some fanart oddly enough. 

 

The promo art is still the closest look

Okay, so I was trying to skip from wherever this thread was last time I was here, but there are so many pages that I just starting skipping every five from 275 and got to 295 when I noticed that has posts from today.

What has happened with this since mid January?

You know what the worst part is to me?  This attempt at modeling Sonic as he might be if he was to function realistically has no spines below the head.  They haven't always been on the backs of other versions of Sonic, but with a big head and small body that isn't a huge issue.  This Sonic, though, isn't built in a way that lets him roll into a spiked ball.

I dunno. It sounds more like he's saying he wouldn't do it just because a ton of people would bother him about it. A ton more than usual in a way that he's unwilling to handle.

Plus, the stuff he draws is just as ugly. Like, the only positive thing I have to say about the few issues of his run on Archie that I do own is that he... let Sonic keep his gloves.

Penders is a reactionist who will say anything to make his own brand look better. I don't hesitate for a second when I say he could design some kind of unholy abomination that would be a billion times worse than the movie render and stand behind it 100% unironically.

Heck, he's already done it with Laura-Su. Jesus.

Brand Personality 

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Yup that's the selling pitch for Sonic. Sonic is just a edgy brand to sell to kids and this movie is trying to be more cool

...This is literally about the brand itself dude? Like this about what they're planning to do with the franchise.
