... The Doomsday Zone
Super 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. All while fighting off Eggman's forces, Sonic collected the elusive Chaos Emeralds, and in the Master Emerald's time of need, the emeralds reach out to each other; yearning to be reunited as they were in the days of old. Sonic, hoping to make that a reality, unleashes the might of the Chaos Emeralds amidst the chaotic expanse of space outside the decimated Death Egg. He becomes the Golden Light, Super Sonic, once more!

Production Notes:
- Standard image version of the animation seen here: [link]
- I shaded Sonic in the palette you see above, then modified that to get Hyper Sonic's colors. When I made him a more accurate Hyper Sonic yellow, some contrast was lost, and I was like, "Oh heck no am I going to put up with that," so I just decided to use the parts I was going to wind up with anyway to make the image seen above. I also made this so that mercy might be enacted upon our poor eyeballs. You think looking at the Hyper Sonic animation is rough, try being the one to have to make it.

Not much else to say, really.

Happy 21st Anniversary, Sonic and Eggman.

Concept - Sega & Sonic Team

Out of curiosity, where does Eggman store the Master Emerald inside that thing anyway? Nice shading on Super Sonic. Now he's really looking 3D. Especially around the ears, legs, and other areas that overlap another.

Nice foreshortening on the arm and shading on the glove.

One of the things I most notice on Eggman's mech is the bottom front. Each piece is lined up very well showing depth.And also because the ends are circular and hollow, it allowed your shading there to stand out quite well (which of course also adds to the 3D-dimensional feel).

Thanks for this comment; good to hear from you.
Funny thing about the Emerald - I was also wondering where Eggman might be storing it, and I was planning on having green lights shimmering out of the back of the craft where that mess of wires is to indicate that that's where he has it stored (I imagine alongside the parts for the Phase 2 mech) but I couldn't figure out a decent way to animate that shimmering light, so it was left off entirely. (I probably should have looked into a way to put that into this static picture, but by that point I forgot.)
I'm glad to hear you think Sonic turned out well. Being an in-your-face element of the piece like that certainly pushed me to pay extra attention to how he was shaded.
Thank you for noting how the bottom of the boss was handled. One of the things that tore me up about the old version of this piece was how I tried to make it so that there was only one of those pieces on the bottom, centered (and the same with the part above it), and how I drew it so horrendously bad that I forgot to make the hollowed out ports line up with the boss's tilt. As another commenter noted on that old piece, "It looks like it's hanging off crooked." I almost somehow made the same stupid mistake here in the early drawing stages before metaphorically whacking myself with a rolled-up newspaper while saying, "No, bad Jon!"
Oh, now I'm starting to ramble.
Thanks for providing this analysis.

It's amazing seeing how you've progressed with all of these images, I always find it fascinating, especially with the S3&K bosses how close you keep to the shading style.
