Very rarely do I ever make fan art of anything, eh~? Well, this one's a bit of a special case for me.
See this dragon girl? She's from this awesome game called Freedom Planet - a game that ALL fans of old-school platformers akin to MegaMan, Sonic, and the like should know about and be playing. You can probably tell from the demo and the trailer (located here! ==> freedomplanet.galaxytrail.com/
) that the style of the game draws quite a bit of inspiration from the Sonic series - among others.
... In fact, this game started
development as a Sonic fan game, I believe ~ I remember seeing Lilac and all her friends, many years ago, before the game had much of anything to show for itself. I never thought I'd see anything from it again, afterward...
... Buuut, fast forward to a couple weeks ago and, through some random bit of fan art I happened to stumble across, not only have I learned that this game was very near to completion, but, in fact, I learned that it had evolved into something that I had ever thought a mere "Fan Game" could ever become - a stand-alone title. With it's own original story, gameplay, artistic style - you name it. :,DD
... See, the game hooked me for that reason. Now, if y'all have been watching me for a while, you know that I've got a few characters that are technically still Sonic FC's in design - characters that I've been working towards establishing as something all their own, with a unique story, unique designs, etc. To see something similar to what I want to do actually achieve a goal like that and succeed...? That's kind of a huge inspiration for me. |DD
... I'd love nothing more than to give Vivian and the others their own game, comic, or whatever - something that could finally take them apart from the Sonic world. XDD Much like Freedom Planet has done for Lilac, here~<3
... Though, obviously, what I have in mind for my girls is something a bit different than what Freedom Planet is~ XD
Aaanyway, that's enough of that ~ just wanted to draw something up as a bit of a 'thank you' for inspiration, I guess. :,DD As well as to celebrate the fact that this game is really awesome. XDD Hopefully, I can do something similar to what GalaxyTrail has done~<3 ;u;
Sooo, have a Sash Lilac picture, made with my mediocre talents.
Aaanyway, Freedom Planet and Lilac are owned by GalaxyTrail and those associated with them~
See y'all next time~!
