Ark the Lizard (Maria Robotnik) by Cylent-Nite Ark the Lizard (Maria Robotnik) by Cylent-Nite
This is a more developed design of my previous deviation which features my Maria Robotnik reincarnation concept: [link]. I've adjusted some of her features while giving her clothing and a colour scheme to work with. I've done my best to retain a lot of Biolizard-esque features, almost having my own try at creating a Mobian Biolizard in the process, which I'm pretty pleased with. For her name, I decided to go with something else instead of just calling her Maria. While Shadow understands that spiritually she is Maria's successor, he would want her to have her own identity. He names her "Ark" based on the Space Colony where both Maria and the Biolizard originated, while also subtly implying the "Arch" in "Archangel" for her namesake.

Her clothes I based loosely on her original clothes and inversed the colour scheme, while also drawing reference to Honey the Cat's style of clothing, who I've deemed would have become the leading fashion designer in the world 10 years along the line. Intentionally I've also stylized her clothing on Honey's Candy variation. Her head accessory is a bit random, but I needed to have something there since it looked empty without it. I've added a ring attached to it to represent a halo of sorts, since people commonly consider Maria to have become an Angel after her death, so I play around with that idea fashionably as well.

This is a beautiful design, I like the fact it isn't simply a more Mobian-looking version of Maria. Love the ring- given that rings appear to have protective properties, it could also double as a symbolic act of protection.

I think it's time I said this: I absolutely ADORE your drawing style. I love the way you did alternate versions of characters. Do you think you will make a alternate Sonic in the future, in case you haven't?

Rock on!!

Ahhh, thank you so much! That really means a lot! And yeah, I do plan to draw out some alternate Sonics in the future (since I have four different timelines I have, so four different Sonics, haha!). Should be fun!

Is Ark also an Ultimate Lifeform?
Reply
:iconcylent-nite:
Cylent-Nite Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
She isn't identified as such, but she is the offspring of the Prototype of the Ultimate Lifeform. So she possesses some of the qualities by association.

This is an interesting concept, and, albeit, still a plausible thing in the Sonic universe. Maria could have became a hedgehog via Shadow's DMA(my guess), and, if a reason were necessary, it could be said the biolizards dna. Nice work.

The similarities to Espio are entirely species-based, that's like saying Shadow and Silver look too much like Sonic. The only things remotely similar to Espio are the lack of nose and her brow hanging over, which is the desired effect to represent a similar reptilian species.

Well its a more unique design than having Maria come back as a hedgie. Lizards are allways fun. So she's a biolizard lizard eh? I allways wondered myself if the Biolizard was a salamander. Awesome design.

I'm not a huge fan of Maria reincarnations, but this is BRILLIANT.
I seriously want to draw fanart of her and learn more about her and just WOW SHE'S PERFECT.

Also, props to you for not making her a hedgehog, her as a lizard (in my opinion) makes a lot more sense.
