You are looking far too much into what I said, I was simply baffled that you would compare one of the terrible 90s renders to a pretty much accurate version of game sonic.  

A patronizing comment being read as patronizing shouldn't be an unexpected occurrence.  As for the model, it's only as accurate to game Sonic as this is an accurate render of the Sonic Free Riders box art-

Obviously, one was traced from the other, but you can also tell the artist (perhaps a young artist, so I'm not saying that with the intent of disrespecting them, and also it's not like I draw any better) does not have a grasp on line art, lighting, shading, or anatomy that makes Sonic's design work.  It's an accurate model of Sonic, but I don't think too many people would argue that it's a good drawing.

Obviously, I'm not saying the model looks like it was traced over and then colored in Microsoft Paint.  But I'm saying, there's more to the quality of a model than how accurate looks at a surface level glance.

Tara, lol

Stop using big words - I don't know what they mean. ;) 

Anyway let's shift focus because this is already too much drama lol 

The design may look even better than the leaks, I'm sure tails channel mentioned a source who said it will look close to the leaked images.

You're being incredibly condescending for no reason (also saying you don't understand "big words" doesn't make you clever) so I suggest you knock it off. Your attitude is extremely poor right now and there's been nothing in Tara's post to warrant this tone.

Oh, good fans are doing the "I bet you don't even know this character or this one. How dare you be in a movie based on this franchise if you're not intimately familiar with it" thing. Actors do not have to know everything about the franchise. They just have to act.

makes even less sense to really criticize her for it considering she isn't playing an established character in the franchise, or even the primary or secondary foil to an established character. She's filling in a role where she could likely know jack squat about the franchise and it wouldn't make a difference.

Giving Sonic a fur texture is fine by me. It doesn't really change his design, it just adds details that obviously couldn't be rendered back when Sonic's design was being finalized. I for one am starting to get sick of the overly abstract artstyle that has taken over since Lost World and caused Forces to look WORSE than a 2008 game in 2017. The idea of giving Sonic more texture isn't even new. SA1 clearly (tries to) gives Sonic a fur texture in the DC version. I don't really get why they switched over to ultra shiny latex Sonic in the ports. (Hardware differences maybe?) The old movie design is ugly because of the tiny hands/feet and the unnecessary changes to the quill configuration. (Sonic 2 special stages anyone?) Also whats up with giving Sonic lips these days? Stop it, it looks terrible on him.

Apparently Sonic the Cosplayer knows when the trailer is coming. 

 

 

 

Hmm, A Sonic fan knows when the trailer is going to be released? Interesting. Probably around early November.:

Considering the characters themselves have always been designed to be a overly abstract art-style outside of maybe Sonic 06, it isn't strange that Sonic-Team tried to reinforce that idea for the series at some point. You know what I don't get? why certain Sonic fans desperately want the series to be realistic as if that is somehow a good match for the series, which it isn't BTW. I wouldn't disagree with saying the Lost World style isn't perfect, I think there is a better middle ground in style somewhere. But I was not a big fan of the style for the environments on Sonic Unleashed, sure the characters were fine, especially the upgrade of making NPCs look like cartoons... but the world itself at times just looked like a video game version of real life with a handful of fantasy tossed on top like loops and what not. The idea of throwing Sonic & gang on top of a semi-realistic world creating a mismatching art style for the main portion of the franchise is just bad I say and I don't see real appeal in it.

Odd that the stand has a "coming soon" rather than the actual release date... but whatever. Would have jumped all over that as a hax had we not seen renders of this new design last week.

Well, the leak is looking pretty legit now. I guess I should be glad they at least updated the design from "dumpster fire" to "awkward imitation"...it still doesn't look great, and it's not going to save the movie, but at least this won't be giving anyone nightmares.

...probably. Probably should wait to see it in motion before saying that.
