Robotnik (Happy 25th, SatAM!)

On this day, back in 1993, the Saturday-morning "Sonic the Hedgehog" cartoon (aka SatAM to most fans) premiered on ABC. It's been 25 years since then, so I felt something to celebrate it was in order.

The version of Robotnik/Eggman in SatAM is by far one of the greatest interpretations of the character. He's intimidating, he's glorious, and in an act that wouldn't be seen until the game Sonic Forces, he actually WON prior to the start of the show. The entire series is spent trying to take back control of Mobius, and the bad doctor doens't make it easy for anyone.

Add in Jim Cummings' voice-acting, and he's a deliciously-evil villain who'd make the game version of the character piss himself.

Leap the Iguana - 1920s
Quick drawing I did of my character Leap the Iguana in 1920s wear. Some folks on Twitter were doing an art contest based around a "Gatsby Party" theme, so I figured I'd give it a shot (the prospect of a small cash prize may or may not have had some influence).

Apologies ahead of time for any inaccuracies in '20s fashion, as that is not my forte (also how many talking lizards you know of wearing them, anyway?).

Tweet of said contest:…
'Draw this in your style' OC challenge
Around Twitter (maybe elsewhere too? That's just where I saw it) there's a "draw your friends' OCs in your style" challenge going around that I've been meaning to do for a while but never got any responses for. So I just decided to do a lot of OCs of fellow staff from Sonic Legacy, plus a couple of people I know on Facebook.

All OCs belong to the following folks (Twitter handles unless otherwise stated):
Red Rabbit (Facebook)
~Hey_Yo~ (Furaffinity)
Leap the Iguana (2018)
Decided to remake a very old OC of mine (here's the original version:…) who I really haven't drawn in around 12 years. Wanted to see if I could get him much more into the Sonic style as well as giving him a look that wouldn't be mistaken for anyone else.

Had a bit of help picking out his new color scheme, which I think stands out since it's not really something done so far with an official character or a comic one.

I also came up with a bit of a backstory for him; basically making him an explorer who travels the world in search of rare sights and treasures, as well as trying to discover whatever became of his father. His extraordinary jumping skills aid him in his adventures, and his tail can pack a nasty wallop if he needs to resort to it.

Wouldn't mind making a game surrounding him, if I actually had the know-how of doing such things.
Elora - Reignited
I found myself absolutely head-over-heels in love with Elora's new look in the Spyro remasters and I knew I had to draw her. I expected Toys for Bob to spruce up her design and do something about the bug-eyes of the original model, but they really knocked it out of the park here.

Only downside is some wild inconsistencies between her concept art for the remasters, and the actual in-game model. Both look good, but it's odd how many differences there are, and made things slightly harder to draw.

Since I'm not really sure what kind of reach those new-ish status updates have, I'll ask this question here.

I'm sure some of you folks have already seen the drawing I submitted of this character Nili (…) for a hypothetical series of the adult-oriented variety. turns out that it sparked a crapload of ideas for characters and a world and before I knew it I realized "oh crap, this could actually be fun to do".

At the same time, it'd also be really really cool to get a few bucks flowing for doing this, so I guess the real question here is: Where in the hell do I go for something like this? I know Patreon is a thing, but you can't be "listed" if you do NSFW stuff.
