This is yet another comic, featuring my Elemental Goddess fancharacters. Unlike the first two, however, this one contains Sonic Battle-style cutscene sprites. Also, rather than being a recreation of certain scenes that have already happened, this one features the Goddesses interacting with their parallel dimension counterparts, who are going to be featured in the next Elements of Power episode. Get it, bee featured?

...

Moving on.

Panel #1: Featuring Scorch, the Goddess of Fire and Volcana, the Goddess of Flames. I'm sure people recognize this one already, since I linked to it in Volcana's Quiz. As for what's going on... Volcana most likely impersonated Scorch (using a shapeshifting belt given to her by "Doctor N."), and the latter's pissed off about it. As you can see, Volcana is somewhat of a troll...at least whenever it comes to Scorch.

Panel #2: Featuring Splash, the Goddess of Water, and Oceana (pronounced "Oh-shan-uh"), the Goddess of Waves. In this scene, Splash is repeating a joke that Charmy told her before, and Oceana doesn't find it very funny, since her personality is a bit more serious than Splash's.

Panel #3: Featuring Slush, the Goddess of Ice, and Frostina, the Goddess of Snow. I originally intended for Frostina to have an "icy clear" color scheme, but things weren't turning out right, so I gave her a different one. There isn't a whole lot to say about this one, it's pretty self-explanatory.

Panel #4: Featuring EG-001 ("Eee-Jee-Double-Oh-One")/Squash, the Goddess of Stone and PG-001 (Pee-Jee-Double-Oh-One)/Stonia, the Goddess of Earth. Yeah, I know I use puns a lot, but I couldn't think of anything else.

Panel #5: Featuring EG-002/Seedra, the Goddess of Leaves and PG-002/Woodra, the Goddess of Flora. Like Frostina, I originally intended for Woodra to have a different color scheme (teal), but it was the same outcome as before, so I gave her one based on a palette edit I've done to the Emerald Hill Zone in a Sonic 2 ROM hack I've attempted eight years ago. As you can see in this one, Woodra has a fascination with rhyming words. Nearly everything she says rhymes.

Panel #6: Featuring EG-003/Shock, the Goddess of Lightning and PG-003/Electra, the Goddess of Thunder. In case anyone's wondering what "superhero cartoon" Electra's referring to, then it's Static Shock, which is where that catchphrase was stolen from.

Panel #7: Featuring EG-004/Storm, the Goddess of Wind and PG-004/Tornada, the Goddess of Air. At first, I was going to give Tornada a palette that's similar to Squash's, but I went for Seedra's instead, since I didn't think the former color scheme would look right with a green gem (which is supposed to be a reference to the Wind Stone from Sonic Adventure, which leads to Windy Valley). Plus, the Double Cyclone from Mega Man X4 is also green, so why not? As for what's going on in this panel, Tornada has a very cheerful and upbeat personality (which is the exact opposite of Storm's serious and somewhat uptight personality), even to the point where it's sometimes seen as irritating to other people.

Panel #8: Featuring EG-005/Silvra, the Goddess of All Elements and PG-005/Goldra, the Goddess of All Elements. The two of them have a sort of "good half/evil half" and "mirror opposites" thing going on, with Silvra being the good one, and Goldra being the evil one. Goldra also considers herself to be the superior one, and tries to shove that in Silvra's face in any way she possibly could, even at the expense of unintentionally insulting herself.

The Elemental Goddess are (C) SolarBlaze. Credit goes to Azuroru for making the sprites. The backgrounds, if I remember correctly, came from Backgrounds HQ and The Leaf Forest Zone.

Nice :3 Looks like the sprite work took a while.

Yeah. Simply recoloring the sprites takes time, so I just can't imagine how much time it must have taken for Azuroru to make them from scratch.

That would've taken forever DX

I have to say, the spritework is excellent, and the dialouge is hilarious. But, what does PG mean?

It stands for Parallel Dimension Goddess.

Huh. So obvious and yet so devious. Nice.
