Sonic Live Action Movie Thread (Read OP for topic rules) "Gangsters Paradise is on Page 380)

(Sigh) As much as I'm really excited to watching this movie, and I'm still looking forward to watching this despite the controversy, but I'm really mixed on the design. However, I feel like they could made a much better and bad ass design, rather than making him just a short blue guy with blue arms and white hands. That's probably disrespecting the design.:

Even Detective Pikachu look better. Look at him. He still look cute and recognizable.:maxresdefault.jpg.

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.

Sorry Pen(dejo) Kenders, but as much as the movie design changes from the source material, at least it's something that does not rape my eyes like your god awful manimal monsters from THE MARY-SUE CHRONICLES.

Besides, it's not like Kenders did any better:

Anyone who draws Sonic as hideous as this has no right to say shit on how others interpretate the character. At least they're making something, while after years and years, Kenders has nothing, zero, nada to show for his shitty characters over which he took Archie and Sega to court.

In short, he's just butthurt over Sega having rejected his vision for a movie so many years ago and it stings his petty little ego that it's someone else who got the project. What a sore loser.

More than anything, I just find the design to be really generic. It might as well be a knock-off. I don't really have any doubts that the thing will look fine in motion, because that's a bare minimum expectation for a movie being produced by a major studio, but that doesn't mean it's appealing. TMNT 2014 had some pretty good special effects, but I still thought the designs were hideous.

It's especially disappointing when you look at how Legendary translated the Pokémon designs for Detective Pikachu, and didn't really compromise on any aspects of the core designs to bring them to life in a realistic setting. Maybe not all those designs translated perfectly (Psyduck comes to mind) but it's an effort I appreciate much more to Sonic's. The basic features are the same, but it's strange to me that a fantasy movie supposedly necessitated such a huge change to a character design that is already really iconic and charming. This is just change for the sake of change.

 

 

Also, we all knew Penders was going to comment on this no matter what lol. I kinda want to rerail this topic away from him since he's basically using that post to shill a project he's never going to release and he doesn't deserve the attention.

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.  

he's just trying to ride the movie coat tails to be relevant.

Its not terrible... but he kind of looks like a reject from those Skylanders games.

This just makes me all the more anxious to see how dear old Jim Carrey looks as our favorite egg-obsessed madman. The suspense is killing me!

Oh.

Eh, it just looks like an interpretation cribbed off Deviantart. Although those hands are really awkwardly timed since FCTR has been doing his edition of Lego Dimension.

The reveal.  Hence why I said everything.  Too many details to count

That's what we got 

It might have been the angle but the proportions on the Pratt one look way better plus his shoes are better

Penders is the pot calling the kettle black.

 

Like other people mentioned its not helping that the Pikachu Detective movie is also comming out this year and showing quite the better version of how to translate a cartoony design.

Okay, so is this actually 100% legit, official..."art"? You know things are looking good when you have to ask that question because the design looks so shit you have an easier time believing it's just some guy trolling with a lazily thrown together crap picture.

My 2 cents:

- First off, I must say:

- Second:

- Third, looks like something Ken Penders would do.
- Fourth, I've seen hundreds of better Sonic fanart on DeviantArt, which tells pretty much everything you need to know.
- Fifth: - "We want to aim for a more realistic design with this movie."
              - "Does that mean you're finally getting rid of that stupid side-mouth?"
              - "Nah, we're actually keeping that."
