Terminal Velocity
Vs. the Nega-Wisp Armor

As the demise of Eggman's Amazing Interstellar Amusement Park comes closer to certainty, the Doctor decides he is not going to take the loss in stride. He decides that Sonic's extermination is all that matters now, but puzzlingly the power of the Nega-Wisp Armor isn't as impressive as the Doctor had hoped. Eggman should have savored Dark Gaia's power while it lasted, because the Wisps have some things that that beast did not - consciousnesses and a will to fight back. As the Wisps already in the mechanical beast fight to hinder it, Sonic's personal entourage prepares to unleash the ultimate power contained within them...

...UNLIMITED COLORS!

Production Notes:
- This is one of those pieces that has been in development for quite some time, but only recently have I had the free time to push it into "completed" territory. I started this file so long ago, in fact, that Sonic's head here was used for two other deviations, one of which was posted back in mid-December 2010 (Exception) before it could even be used for the deviation it was created for. Yeesh, time flies fast.
- The boss was ironically the fastest component of this, by far. One day drawing, another shading, and that's it. Other parts were made in less time, sure, but when taking about pure speed, the boss takes the cake.
- I tried to make interesting use of the curved road in this battle to create what you see. It was exaggerated a bit, but I'm not complaining. Both Sonic and the boss are good and visible while still being in decent scale.
- The white Wisp there is one that had escaped the boss after Sonic landed a hit, and it is heading towards Sonic, explaining its different positioning/perspective.

It's awesome. need i say more? Well, I have to, because of the 100-word minimum. You captured the Egg Armor Nega Wisp beautifully. I love d Sonic Colors, so I have a particular fondnedd for this piece. The lighting adds ore to the drama of this fight, and the shading is impeccable. I also love how you drew Sonic. He looks awesome. The runnung pose is great, and the Wisps's glow on him is a nice touch. As for the actual Wisps, they look awesome! All he Wisps from the Wii version of Sonic Colors are here. (Yes, I see you, too, Yacker.) All in all, this art of the Nega Wisp Armor Phase is truly stunning. INSTANT FAVORITE!!!

this is the most amazing piece of sonic color art i have ever seen on this site. looking at this reminds me of the first time i versed the nega wisp armor. it was an emotional time for me and a woundeful boss fight that ended the game beautifuly. to u sir i tip my hat and bow to you. for u had made something that no one can recreate. Hell, if i worked for sega, i would contact u and ask u to be a designer for concept art for all other sonic games from now on. u have made something to be proud of.

In all honesty with how you do your artwork there are times where I'm convinced it might actually be 3d modeling. The lining and color shading is simply beautiful and your attention to detail is wonderful. However while this is a magnificent piece, it is not very original. (sorry to say) It's generally taking a scene from the gaming and making a portrait of that scene through a perspective, but regardless of that this just seems like it could be hand drawn sprite work for a 2d sonic game in it of it's self. Overall this is a very well done piece and I do look forward to whatever pieces you make in the future.

I'm most certainly glad you like what I have produced here, and I thank you for generating this critique. Indeed sometimes I've been able to replicate the look of 3D models well, but I assure you that so far all my art's been 2D. It's quite a fun endeavor to turn 3D into 3D-looking-2D.
As far as the originality rating goes, I won't contest your decision, but I'll try to impart some advice for future critiques. It might not hurt to modify what the Originality rating means when you are critiquing fan art. Personally, I'd take it to mean, "To what degree has the artist modified the original concept - what have they done to make it their own?" Granted, my piece would probably still rate a tad low given that criteria, but on other pieces dynamic changes in lighting or stylization could help give a fan artist some originality points. Perspective could also be a factor if the original source was 2D.
Apologies for the tangent there. It's just becoming a pet peeve of mine to see "It's fan art, so reductions in originality points for you." I'd like to see the meaning of the Originality section change with the subject matter being critiqued.
If that doesn't appeal to you, at least gloss over that aspect when generating the text portion of the critique. It most likely doesn't bear special mention.

All in all, thank you for taking the time to generate this critique. Be well.

You drew the Egg Nega Wisp Armor very nicely. It takes both skill and effort to draw something that complex and succeed. I can't really say much more on the robot. Amazingly drawn, that's all.
Sonic and the Wisps were done nicely. Drawing Sonic when he had just rescued the White Wisp was a thoughtful detail. Nice idea. However, since he had just gotten the last Wisp, I think that you should have drawn Eggman either beginning to stumble or about to lauch his final attack (depending on whether you were drawing the DS or Wii version).
Overall, though, this was very well done. Good work, as usual.

I thank you for this analysis. I was hoping to capture all of the Wisps here since I felt this was going to be the only time I was going to draw them, and that effort was good yet also produced an oddity. You have a good eye, as you have caught this oddity. Indeed, if game accuracy were truly being upheld, the boss would be glitching up at this moment. (It's based on the Wii version.) I've noticed there's a slight delay in the boss's animations between the final normal hit and the Final Color Blaster hit, so maybe this piece represents the final fraction of a second of normal operation Eggman has with the machine? That's what I've been telling myself this whole time. At any rate, thank you for taking the time to develop this critique.

I really love the detail you put in this piece, especially with the Nega-Wisp Armor. I also like the transparency you gave the Wisps charging towards the Nega-Wisp Armor. I also love the detail you gave each Wisp, especially with the eyes of the Rocket and Cube Wisps popping out. In fact, this almost looks like a screen from the game, but I can tell it isn't.

There were a few things that could be improved. While the Space Elevator looks great, it felt a little bare, and in the game, it had a little more to it. The capsules in the back of the Nega-Wisp Armor are fine as they are, but could provide a little more liquid inside of them. I know it's hard to draw the liquid inside the capsules, but it's just a suggestion.

Four stars were given for originality since it is fanart. I do admire the style you used and you did a great job with the piece, but since it is fanart, I can't give out five stars for this. (Sorry, just a personal thing.)

Overall, great work, and I'll be looking forward to seeing more.

I thank you for taking the time to generate this critique. The Wisps' effects did indeed take a lot of trial and error to create, so I am glad you thought that aspect of the piece turned out well. I cannot agree with your assessment on the detail of the space elevator however, because in that particular battle, that really is as detailed as it gets. If you were comparing it to the Terminal Velocity Act 1 and 2 versions, mine might look under-detailed, sure, but when compared to the version that actually appears in that battle, it should be found as being quite accurate.
All in all, thank you for putting forth the effort to analyze the piece in this way, and I appreciate the input.

I checked the accuracy of the space elevator using one of my let's play videos and it turns out you're right about that. When I was writing the critique, I was thinking the other version seen in Terminal Velocity Act 1. I thought it showed one of the huge rings during the final boss battle, but I was mistaken. The only difference I saw is that the game's version of the elevator was smaller, but that's just a perspective issue.

Is this done with SFM...because if so WHERE ARE THE MODELS I NEED NEGA WISP ARMOR!!!!!!
Hazard-the-Porgoyle's avatar
I am honored that you believe my work is good enough to pass for 3D models. Alas, what you see here is 2D, drawn with the techniques seen here: How It's Made - Hazard Edition
That said, there are a variety of Colors models, including the Nega Wisp Armor here: www.models-resource.com/wii/so…
Perhaps that is what you are looking for, if you have not seen it already.

OH MY GOD!!! Thats some good stuff. i cant draw like that at all.

The final Color Blaster is my favorite final attack . Oh and maybe the final Color Blaster will be stronger due to the new wisps that were introduced in Sonic Lost World. The Wisp announcement would go like this “UNLIMITED COLORS! LASER! DRILL! SPIKES! ROCKET! CUBE! HOVER! FRENZY! BURST! VOID! ASTEROID! EAGLE! RHYTHM! QUAKE! LIGHTNING! BOMB! FINAL COLOR BLASTER! “

I'm gonna reach for the stars,
Although they look pretty far.
I'm gonna find my own way,
And take a chance on today.
