Flight with the Overlord

This was my entry for the Sonic and the Black Knight fanart contest that was held~

I admit I'm a bit bummed I didn't win, but hey, can't win 'em all right?

I waited until they released the names of the winners before posting this.

:XD: I spent a whoppin' 2 days (14 hours ish) on this (the last 2) and got it done a day early (because there was a typo in the Terms n Conditions). I'm happy with how it turned out actually~ Metal Overlord was such a bitch, just looking for refs alone! :giggle:

Anywhoop- congrats to the winners and I hope you enjoy this!

I feel it's my best pure Sonic fanart to date, but we'll see what happens in the future~ ;)

- Pencil & Paper for sketching
- Photoshop 7.0 + Corel Painter X
- My trusty 3 year old tablet! Wacom Intuos 3~

Really awesome. This mode of painting is beautiful. The dark style painting of Metal Overlord combined perfectly with the style of that monster.

Tails expression is cute, but, in this moment, he is not "feared" in that combat, remembering, Tails is not more kid XD

Knuckles is f*cking awesome, that face enraged for a final fight makes Knuckles simply badass.

That obscure ambient are really different than the real game and that idea is truly beautiful.

I Liked the mode you use to the form you used for M.Overlord pbscure painting ^^

Really congratulations, your work is truly beautiful <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt="=)" title="=) (Smile)"/>

Keep it up ^^

/D I'm surprised people still pay attention to this after... going on what...5 years now? ... I should probably do something bigger and better to show I can do better than this lol.

But, I'm still glad that after so long that it's still enjoyed~ :) Thank you for your generous words!

Oh Arceus, imagine just flying through the sky and then looking down and seeing metal overlord.

Dammit all...I can hear that song in my head now.

This only took 2 days!?  I wish I could draw this complex in so little time.  I can't draw Tails standing still in less than one day.

Love everyone's expressions here, especially Knuckles' feral grimace.  I also love Metal Sonic bursting out of the clouds like Jaws or something.  Really reminds you that even if the gameplay to this boss was simple, the scope of the battle was INTENSE and Metal Sonic was truly a nightmare of power.

Well, almost six years ago it took me two days when I had more free time on my hands lol.

But glad to see it still has some kind of affect even today~

Oh, okay.  That takes the sting off a bit.

I guess it doesn't matter how old it is, good art always has an effect on people.

"Flight with the Overlord"...Is that a pun on an orchestral piece?
BlazeTBW's avatar
I can't say I remember at the time... but some how it's oddly even more fitting lol. Good show~

This is awesome! I'm still wondering why they only gave Miles and Knuckles super shields. They have super forms.

Tails- Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (My favourite Classic game of all time) and

Knuckles- Sonic & Knuckles and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles

Long time no see, Sonic, my loathsome copy!

Nice photo. I always wonder this. Why didn't Sonic Team give Knuckles and Tails super shields instead of just giving them their super forms, Super Knuckles and Turbo Tails?
BlazeTBW's avatar
:shrug: I honestly wouldn't know. However the only idea I would have is that Super Knuckles (at least in the games) required the Super Emeralds (which haven't existed since the one game)- same with Super Tails. Turbo Tails was only within the Archie comics and, at least for a long while, SEGA Sonic never really crossed paths with the comic universe.

Also this picture's super old (to me) lol.

This was annoying boss but I still defeated Metal... But weird that Boss sucks metal and combines it into some cyclops monster...

BlazeTBW's avatar
That's just how it goes~ :) But there were some great entries that did make it in.
