Scrap Brain - The First Finale

No one has permission to re-post this. Period.


Final Zone
Vs. Dr. Eggman

Sonic has traveled the highs and lows of South Island, and has found the ever elusive Chaos Emeralds. The nefarious Dr. Eggman now has a golden opportunity at his fingertips; if he stomps Sonic into a blue jelly, the gems will fall into his clutches, and the torsion that had kept them hidden from him until now will no longer be of any concern. Sonic is likewise faced with a rare opportunity - Eggman has nowhere else left to run, and nothing else to terrorize the denizens of South Island with. With just a few more spin attacks, Sonic can end the plague of the Doctor's presence, and he may use the Chaos Emeralds to restore the island to its prior state of liveliness.
Which side has the strength needed to come out on top?
The battle of nature versus machinery reaches the first of what will be many decisive final battles...

Production Notes:
- "Press X to reclaim your former glory."
*Presses X*
I have reentered a state that I have not been in for some time, one in which I will be able to produce art with very little limitations. It's been a rough year, but I'm back, and I'm gonna make this opportunity count.
- All in all, I'm glad I was able to finally redo this piece. My last attempt had no perspective forethought, and it was made right after I learned how to make pieces with no visible outlines, so I was still really new to the idea. Heck, back then I used Flash gradients for everything, including the characters. That just doesn't cut it nowadays.

Until the next one folks.

Indeed this is something I do. Let me explain:

I, and many others, assumed that Sonic Adventure's redesigns for the cast were retcons, meaning that Sonic Team was saying "This is how they always were, ignore that previous stuff." Sonic Adventure's two flashbacks seemed to strengthen this argument, not portraying Sonic, Tails, Amy, and Metal Sonic with classic-styled models. I realize this is not the strongest argument, as they were presumably just not able to make additional models with the limitations of the era.

Sonic Pocket Adventure for the SNK Neo-Geo Pocket Color is where Eggman comes into play. In this game, he starts out in his classic outfit, and towards the end, we see him in his modern outfit. I like to think that Eggman's differences are more clothing related than anything, so I feel comfortable changing between the two based on the battle I'm drawing.

Members of the Sonic Stadium message board and myself have drawn the conclusion that we should not take Generations seriously when it comes to the Classic vs. Modern style debate. Not a single character made anything other than very vague observations about the changes between the Sonics. "Did you get a haircut?" and comments like that. It was almost as if they couldn't really see that there were two wildly different styles before their eyes. We take that to mean that Generations was a nod to the fans and not much else.

Sonic 4: Episode II serves as the final nail in the coffin for me. Here, we see Metal Sonic, who has not been touched since Sonic CD, is already in his modern form when Eggman rediscovers him, as if he had always been that way; a reference to that retcon thing I mentioned at the beginning.

I hope this clears things up.

how long did it take to type that
La la la la
 
Hazard-the-Porgoyle's avatar
15 minutes maybe. I've had to think about this issue for some time, so it didn't take long to formulate the ideas.

Have you made a king boom boo pic yet? He is one of my favorite bosses from Sonic and it would be awesome to see a drawing of the battle!
Hazard-the-Porgoyle's avatar
I had whipped up a minor animation involving King Boom Boo in the past, but that has since been removed from the site because of how poorly it has aged. I do like the idea of drawing a King Boom Boo piece, but I do not know when I'll be able to get to it. Things are kinda hectic.

No problems. No rush!

this is a very nice art piece.

too bad the battle itself was lame
HappyAggro's avatar
Welcome back! Nice improvement from the original.

Did you plan scenery through some sort of 3D CG software or you did it directly in PS?b Anyway , it's great.
Hazard-the-Porgoyle's avatar
Flash and Photoshop were all it took to make this. You may read about my techniques here: [link]
McKimson's avatar
I find your skill is superp. You do it with out a sketch. Furthermore , you can simulated those 3D without 3D SW.

I study your techniques now and thanks for the advice.

Heya good to see ya again, it's been a while! :) Great Fan-Art! I remember when I 1st reached the Final Zone, it was a pain fighting Dr. Robotnik like this.

Welcome back. Sonic should be careful, if he slides too far he'll be crushed. I thought you had done this before, but I can't find the first version in your gallery, unless I skipped over it. I think what I most like about this piece is the cylinders that move up an down because you're able to see inside of them and the technical complexity.
Hazard-the-Porgoyle's avatar
You are correct that I had a previous version of this piece; I deleted it just before putting this one up. You'd be surprised at how many people can't figure out that there's a new version they should be paying attention to, and that the old version is obsolete and unworthy. I've had pieces in the scraps that still got more attention than their new counterparts before I got rid of them.

Anywho, I'm certainly glad you like this new one. I wasn't sure how I was going to approach the "see inside the cylinders" issue, (and looking back, there could be a little more) but all in all I'm glad I wasn't as cheap here as I used to be.
