... Vs. the Egg Hawk
Requested by ~Devil-505

If I had my doubts about liking/not liking this boss, they've been settled. Boy, this was a pain in the rear.

-Perspective issues are rampant in this. Eggman probably seems small, and to that I'll say - Tails and Knuckles are closer to the camera than they appear.
-This pic has far more Photoshop burn/dodge work than I'm accustomed to doing. This felt like it took forever as a result.
-I suppose I wanted to do more with the BG than I did, but I'll leave it as one of those "It's better off this way" situations.
-Yes, the Egg Pawn is looking in a completely different direction than the one he's firing in. Probably good for Knuckles.

Concept - Sonic Team

Seeing this artwork has brought back memories of when I played Sonic Heroes for the first time. I was not used to it, but the music in the game was enough to keep me hooked. When I saw the Egg Hawk, I knew that a real challenge was about to come forth. The details are beyond amazing in my opinion and have a nostalgic feel to it. I rate this (personally) as a 5 star effort. If this were at an auction, I would like to have it on my wall at home. This is my perspective on how well this has been made.

Heh, cool picture! :D Yeah, I still think Egg Hawk was one of the better bosses of that game... :XD:
There's a lot of action in this pic, all right!
Whoa, looks like Knuckles took a really near miss there! :O

XD Anyone ever notice Eggman's machines are never truly THAT different? You think at some point he would just shoot sonic xD Maybe outsmarting him is part of his goal.

I like this ^^ I played Sonic heroes yesterday and beat this guy in less than a minute =P Really good though dude ^^

If I were Eggman, I would fuse the components of a machine that is super accurate (Egg Viper for example) with a machine that's shots travel with no lag time (like the Egg Devil Ray's instantaneously traveling lasers.) There's no way to lose - you'd hit him every time!

true, but the only times he ever makes weapons that even come close to that is at the end of the game when Sonic is Super Sonic, and NOTHING can beat him x3

exelent detail!! and love the action too :D

Eggman sure made a big dumb bird this time

You'd think he would have come up with something a little more robust or menacing. It was probably his most juvenile creation to date.

I think it's a great image, it nice to see more characters appearing, seems much more interesting.

The Egg Hawk itself looks 3D, it's fantastic =D

Just wow. That is absolutely amazing!
I saw this in my devWatch and thought it was a screen shot... that's how amazing this is!
Great work, Haz!!

I'm actually finding that to be one of my most received comments nowadays - "I thought this was a screenshot." It's actually quite surprising and honoring. Thanks!
