... The Doomsday Zone
Hyper Sonic Vs. Dr. Eggman

Sonic's courage and valor have had their effects on Angel Island; he has morphed into the island's hero. As the prophecy of the Master Emerald's theft has become a reality, so has the prophecy of a hedgehog warrior confronting the evil behind the theft. Sonic, having gone beyond the call of the prophecy, had acquired the valued Chaos Emeralds, and he had brought them to the Master Emerald that controls them. Sensing the imminent danger, the Emerald had offered Sonic the chance to tap into their rarely seen extra power. Taking this chance, Sonic traversed the extra-dimensional Special Stages and earned the right to wield the power of the mighty Super Emeralds. Now, amidst the chaotic expanse of space outside the decimated Death Egg, Sonic plans to show Eggman just what this new power can do; he will unleash the light of Hyper Sonic!

Production Notes:
- It was about time I got to updating this old thing. As with other major redraws, not a single element of the previous version is found here, and thank goodness. Back then I was like, "Oh, it's all going to be animated anyway, it's not going to matter how blurry it is, " yadda yadda. Don't know how that idea got into my head, but thankfully it's no longer a concern.
- I think that something that led to me holding back on the old one was the clunky computer it was made on. I really thought this new version would cause slowdowns, but it thankfully did not, and it's actually a smaller file to boot. That said, I'm running on 2 GB of RAM with a 3 GHz processor, which I think I am learning is very average these days. I hope it runs well on your machine.
- I tried to use ActionScript to create a custom right click menu, and the feature I was hoping to add, the "Click my name to get taken to my site" thing works, but sometimes it causes my Flash Player to stop working. Use at your own risk. Oh, and if the animation tries to scale itself to fit your screen and it looks jagged as a result, try to ensure you are viewing it in a way that ensures a 100% zoom as opposed to the auto resizing "Show All" thing that Flash does. It doesn't even seem like there is an option to switch it to 100%, even though there initially was when I was testing the animation in Flash 8.

To prove that I don't want to sear all of your eyeballs off with Hyper Sonic's crazy flashing animation just for you to view this piece, I also whipped up this variant with our good old non-eyeball-killing friend, Super Sonic: [link]

Happy 21st Anniversary, Sonic and Eggman.

:star::star::star::star::star-half: Impact

First off, ive got to say: WOW. Secondly, as always, the technique seems flawless to the human eye, and makes me think that this were straight from SEGA themselves. The animation of Hyper Sonic looks as if it had come directly from the game itself, as the colors flawlessly lead into the next, as well as the slight silver coloring between each coolor change. The aftermirages left in his wake have also been recreated. The only slight thing i have quips for, is that there seems to be a bit of clashing. As much as I enjoy perfect recreations of classic sprite-like artwork in your deviations, the modern, clean cut, near 3-D image of Hyper Sonic seems to somewhat clash with the sprite like image of Robotnik's ship, while at the same time blending smoothly. However, this is most likely my own viewing. In any case, this piece deserves to be seen by all eyes of Sonic fandom.

Thank you greatly for developing this critique. There were certainly many components to Hyper Sonic that I was going to be sure not to miss; I'm glad you think they turned out well. I can see what you mean about the difference between Sonic's smooth Burn and Dodge shading vs. the boss's cel shading-ish appearance, which was brought on by gradients. Following the sprites too closely did indeed play a part in that, as did the assumption that metal commonly displays sharper shading than other types of objects. In any case, I'll keep that in mind.
I'm glad you like the piece, and thank you for taking the time to develop this analysis.

Indeed, the fat man's milking it for all it's worth. Maybe he's hoping Hyper Sonic will run out of rings.
