Team Chaotix by darkspeeds Team Chaotix by darkspeeds
This is a sketch and inked version of Team Chaotix (without Knuckles X3;; ^^).

It was requested by a guy named Magnus. He takes great interest in Sonic the Hedgehog and loves the Chaotix. His favourite character is Mighty. ^_~

For now I've been told to draw this. It is half of what I've been told to do because I've still got the Floating/Angel Island to do for a background. What do you guys think of the slightly modified designs? ^^

Also feel free to use the inked version as practice for colouring. ^_~ If you wish for a larger version for easier colouring don't hesitate to note me and I'll send you a larger file. ;)

P.S. Magnus' website can be found here: [link]

Go check it out, it's rather cool. ;)

*Tries to make her hand in that position of Espios* Not.. so.. hard.. at all.. owie.. *Hit*

Anyway xD This is great so far! I really like how smooth you are over inking "O___O" Especially when you choose to be bold in some areas while keeping relatively thin in others.. really brings out the areas where shading would be great and where the light would be aimed at.. I adore how you made Charmy ";_____;" He looks very cute, yes! His hands are great xD YOU ARE TOO GOOD AT HANDS. :|

Espio's head looks a little strange, though.. the peach-part of him that's under the horn.. I just think it should stick out a little more.. because it looks like his face was squished in, but that's the only probably I really see.. and it's not so noticeable anyway ^.^; It's still really good and I like the pose he has xD Especially when doing that interesting hand movement..

Charmy's so cute xD He seems to be the one not really going anything! Charmy's hopping in cheer, Espio's making a fighting-pose, Vector is holding his boom-box, but Mighty just stands and winks xD Nice and to the point for him.. I always liked Mighty myself ;.; Even though people constantly whine about him merely being a Sonic rip-off. :| Atleast you altered his shoes! They look very similar to Sonic in the original design.. basically Sonic's shoes!

But yeah xD Great work so far! I can't wait to see the background and everything ";____;" We need brilliant Chaotix fanart. :|

.. Knuckleeeeees ";___;" *Hit*

Wow! This is amazing! It looks fantastic already, And you said you wern't even done? :wow:

Sonic-the-Artist Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2004

Im sorry to say, but the idea of Vector,Charmy and Espio being a Team was new for Heroes.

Meaning Mighty wont come back.

they were all individuals who met by chance and then parted their own ways.

But Sonic Team kinda made them new Characters or so I heard.

So Mighty isnt part of Team Chaotix nor he will come back.

unless Fans drive SonicTeam Crazy, like they did with Shadow I bet.

just letting you know. I got carried away.

OH, but this is so good. When can we expect to see the colored version? I'm very curious. ^^

Awesome O_O :wow: Your inking job is brilliant, man I wish I could ink like that!
You draw them so well, and interesting notes on the sketch :lmao: Suberb job, as always Darkspeeds!

One word dude: SHWEET. \m/ rock on!

Nash-The-Mutt Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2004  Student Digital Artist
The Chaotix artwork is excellent (especially the fact that made Espio, Vector, and Mighty shoes look more complex than the original). I also like the fact that you give back the belt Vector once had in the original Chaotix Game.
Noshi--001 Featured By Owner Dec 2, 2004
Wowzers Darkspeeds you did a really good job on this picture! In fact it is so good i'll have to fav it now ^_^ :+fav:

Wow that's awesome. :wow: Are you part of the Sonic Team? ;)

Project-Shadow Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2004
wow that's simply amazing darkspeeds, the sketches are great, and your inking is so smooth. It's incredible. The poses are great too, they kinda show off some of their personalities the way they're standing (or flying ;P) lol keep it up darkspeeds :) :thumbsup:

O____O W O W

This looks so super cool! ^___^ You made the whole team look great. But how come Knuckles isn't there? Ah well. I guess he found some grapes and got distracted (they're his favorite fruit, after all), or else that sneaky thief Rouge was after his Emerald. *chuckle*

I like seeing both the sketch and the finalized ink version at the same time like this. It shows how much you've straightened and refined the lineart with the black lines. =] Nice details, and I really like the changes you've made to everyone's attire. For what I can see of Charmy's sneakers, it looks like you've replaced the sort of zipper thingy with some strap things. (Charmy is so cool! ^___^)

This definatly looks great, and I love how you've characterised them by making their poses all so unique. I love how Vector's got his boombox. Still hafta do the background, huh? ^__^;; I'll be more than willing to help you color, if you'd like me to. Just say something, sweetie. =]

I only have one suggestion for your ink job. The side of Mighty's face (not just his eye! I noticed the little marking thingy, too, lol!) has a thicker line than the rest, sort of putting more shading focus there and not to really anywhere else on his body (as opposed to maybe Vector, who has the darker lines on his legs, arm, bit of his back, etc.).

However, I could be mistaken. You ink differently than I do, so my suggestion might be kind of pointless. XD

Very nice of you to do this though, and it looks great =]


Talk to you soon, sweetheart~ :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart: :heart:
KnuxZ Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2004
wow, awsome. Vector has headphones and a boom box at the same time? XD. I love how you often have knuckeles "quack" whenever you sketch his lil' head. it's silly. These are like the best characters in all of Sonic. Though I don't like their new designs as much as the old ones. I liked it when Vector had a belt *bricked*
The way that you draw hands is so perfect. Not too big and not too wee. ^^ the poses are really cool too. If this were colored then it would make a really good desktop wallpaper o.O
love how you put in a lot of details. I especially like Vector *hugs Vector* XD

Knuckles: "QUACK!" *murdered*
sonicolas Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2004  Hobbyist Digital Artist

EbonyDarkster Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2004
This picture is so awsomely detailed! The inking is very clean. You did Vector so well. (I find him VERY difficult to do because of his face structure.) I LOVE team Chaotix! *has theme stuck in her head* Instant fav or such an amazing picture!

It's not impossible to bend your fingers like that. See?

*uses one to bend the other hand's fingers up*

S'cuse me, I have to go to the hospital now.

Awesome pic, Darks. I always loved the Chaotix. Vector, Charmy, Mighty, Espio and even Heavy and Bomb, they were all awesome. :D
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2004  Hobbyist General Artist

Heya Zin. ^_^ It's nice to hear from ya. X3 Goodness man you don't want to do that IRL... Otherwise suffer from not being able to eat your favourite meal for the rest of your life! (or even draw... depending on which side of the hand with the fingers is broken...) :giggle:

Thanks for the compliment on the Chaotix pic, and yes I know you love the Chaotix ever since the good old times. :) Indeed they were all an awesome bunch, not like the new characters we're getting nowadays that are being thrown in by the Sonic Team at the last minute... ^^

Do continue to fire up your artistic talent cuz you've really got what it takes to advance into a good career with that talent of yours. ;)

HondaWhiteFox Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2004
WOW! You did an awesome job on this picture! The inking job looks fantastic. I like how well you varied the line widths and all the little details you put in. I also like how well you posed the characters. Especially Espio. He has a very ninja like pose. The whole thing has a very professional appearance to it. Again, very nice job on this! :)
kevintheman Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2004  Hobbyist Photographer
wow great lineart, espressions, and poses darkspeeds. I like those little notes you put in especially the "quack" one XD
egpNoodlez Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2004
Yay Chaotix! And Knuckles left out at the top, nice touch :XD: Your art's great as always, I like your tweaks on their accessories and stuff, and I love Vector's boombox :D

My fav Chaotix member is still Espio, ninjas rule!
Lightwind Featured By Owner Dec 1, 2004
That is very good... Vector and Charmy are excellent, (they are my favorite Chaotix characters) Espio and Mighty are okay, but Mighty makes no pose... Why? Is it beacuse he was left out of Sonic heroes?

"Quack" That is very funny...
