Still a bit rusty, but...

For this week's theme of heroics, I decided to instead focus on a character who was initially a villain, and had a change of heart, becoming a hero. A certain red and black individual who initially followed orders loyally, only wanting what their master wished, until a certain pink hedgehog helped them find their way. I am of course, talking about...

Gamma!

So the idea of this was pretty simple - somewhat at least. Initially, it started out as a Most Wanted poster that would've taken place during Sonic Forces, ordering for Sonic's capture, but said poster would've been defaced.

However, as things progressed along, I got some more inspiration, and decided it'd be a neater idea to do Gamma, because not only does the poor robot not get nearly as much attention as other characters, but I feel like he actually conveys the theme of heroism pretty well - a villainous robot only mindlessly following Eggman's orders, who changes and redeems himself thanks to Amy's help. This is especially true when you get to the Archie books, where Gamma wasn't destroyed at the end of Adventure - instead becoming a lone agent taking down Eggman's forces, which infuriated the doctor to the degree he sent Omega to hunt him down, and even at that, Gamma still gave his upgraded successor a good run for his money, as well as leaving him with parting words that would causes Omega to have a change in heart in that continuity.

So here's Gamma being bestowed with a great mark of honour for any hero on Sonic's world - with Eggman wanting you captured for a huge ring reward, with Eggman handing him the greatest title you can have, for any hero - having backstabbed his empire, and massively taken down Eggman's elite army by a wide margin, Gamma's been branded a Empire Traitor.

Apologies for some of the wonky writing, the program I use for sprite work isn't particularly friendly when it comes to text, but hopefully it all came out decently in the end.

Uwaaa, I thought it was custom Badnik week. But! I was able to get this together.

It doesn't matter how strong or fast or cool you are. It doesn't matter if you're the most famous hero in the world. Everybody, sometimes, will be in danger. Everybody, sometime, will get sucked into a magic video game with the batteries running out. When that happens, the heroes become the innocents in need of a hero themselves. Who saves the heroes when they need protecting?

The sidekicks, of course! Don't forget,they are heroes too. To the world, Mario and Sonic might be the greatest heroes. But Tails and Luigi are their heroes. And by the transitive property, that means that the world owes these two, too.

(Five seconds after this picture, Metal Sonic is going to learn firsthand why you never underestimate a Mario Brother with a seemingly harmless object like a football.)

I thought it was Badnik week!!!!

Had to scrap something together quick, and I went with our hero Tails receiving a Chaos Emerald for saving Station Square from the Egg Walker.

The schedule was posted here:

Hopefully Badnik Week is still happening next week? @Dreadknux? Any clarification on that?

Huh, I never noticed the schedule part. Weird. Good thing I hadn't, or else I probably would've did a Badnik picture of Motobug instead lol.

What could be more heroic than savin’ a lil’ damsel in distress from the horrors of evil? 

 

You’d get the picture if you played the game the girl’s from. 
 

Medium: still life photography.

This piece is called "Chivalry"

52142286746_74a05dfd8f.jpg

It features Sonic & Caliburn protecting one of the child villagers in Camelot.

Originally, this was going to be a practice sketch but I really liked Sonic's pose (although his left ear might be a little off).

While looking at references, I never realized how much detail was in most of the characters in this game.

Another idea I had for this sketch was having Sonic run while holding the villager while Caliburn is floating beside him while a horde of the Knights of the Underworld chase from behind.

I call this one "Complicated Guy"

Tails may be one of Eggman's greatest enemies, but right now, they're allies. So as soon as he sees Tails in danger, he leaps into action immediately - which I always interpreted as Eggman being a good (temporary) ally and genuinely trying to save Tails's life. The moment happened so suddenly, and Eggman reacted so instantaneously, that I can't logically write it off as him merely hedging his options or manipulating the heroes. Eggman saw his ally in peril, and without a moment's hesitation, put himself in harm's way to save him.

As villainous as Eggman is, this moment is "Heroic" by any metric.

Yes, my apologies - things had to get switched around last-minute. This has probably screwed up people's timelines for working on these things, but I'm going to be removing all time limits on the month's activities later today anyway so if you can't get it done this week then you should be able to contribute before the end of the month :)
