My first, of what will be hopefully 4 entries to the The ultimate fandom contest so before I start with my long-ass description, I'll give the rundown as requested by contest rules:
-Ultimate fandom contest3: video games (already gave a link up top) -Gaming franchise: Sonic the Hedgehog (can fit many of the games, but more likely Sonic Adventure) -Environment or character: Character (I will do an environment next) -My description: read below...
At first, I wanted to avoid the temptation to draw an already popular game character, but really, nearly all the games I am a fan of are either Sonic or mario-related lol. So if I forced myself to draw a game I didn't care about simply because less will do it, well it would defeat the purpose of fanart now wouldn't it? Plus, I just realised I havn't made any Sonic-related fanart in a year and a half! oh the time goes faster than Sonic himself In recent years, Sonic has gotten bad press from half of his fanbase, who think that the newer 3D games are butchering the franchise and many former fans just think Sonic would be better off rolling over and dying. Well, I agree that the old ones are definetily more "fun" and have more replay value. But I don't think the new ones are all that bad, But still - I'm hanging on for the day when Sonic explodes in popularity when Sega finally brings out what we all want...a 3D rendition of some of the best older games
And now for the technical details. Both Sonic and Dr Eggmam had their poses based off found images, I got the idea for Sonic's pose from a screenshot of Sonic Adventure, and Eggman's is from the "Sonic-X" anime show that seemed to go out as quickly as it came in (mind you, Eggman was really holding a control stick to one of his machines, but I thought the Emerald would be more appropriate) However, the lighting and colour scheme on the characters, along with the background was all purely my idea, I wanted the action-packed movie-poster sort of thing going on here
Sonic and Dr Eggman are copyrighted characters of Sega. This fan-art is made and copyrighted by me, please do not steal and use this artwork
So this is my third design entry for the T-Shirt competition, I think my first two efforts were really a means to start getting the old grey matter ticking. I decided to try and focus the design on the fact that DA is an online community. I’ve tried to do this by creating a computer clipart image set up in the same colours and style as the DA logo. To try to enforce the community part of the design I added my own DA mug, which hopefully tells someone that Da is a place to curl up and chill in front of the computer with a nice drink. I just went for a front design.
PLEASE…………. If you do like my idea then vote for me by clicking on the “I’d wear this” button and passing this on to your friends and groups.
-Ultimate Fandom Contest 4: Inspiration [link] - The name of your source of inspiration: Sonic - What genre it falls in: Video games - A paragraph detailing why you were inspired by this fandom: I've been a Sonic fan when I played Sonic Heroes. It was an awesome game. Actually, I've already knew some characters from Sonic X. But when I played Sonic Heroes, I've noticed that they are much better... Rouge is one of my all time favourite characters so I drew her with long hair, a nice dress and singing.
