Cliff-top battle by Swirlything Cliff-top battle by Swirlything
Yeah, fan art. *shrugs* I was testing out how much detail i could get away with... been on my hard drive a while, but considering how much time it took me to do i thought i might as well post it. Of course Sonic's hands and feet are wrongwrongwrong, and for some reason i decided to do a green eyed Metallix. Blah.

Looks like they've been fighting for ages...I don't know if Sonic's going to win or is about to die horribly, you decide.

Colouring method and rain effect inspired by zonefox
I've been told a tutorial for the rain effect can also be found here [link] although i've never seen it.
Glowyness inspired by lockon .
If anyone has a problem with this pic, note me and i'll remove it.

I always did love Metal Sonic. I was kinda sad that he was only in a movie and had no appearances (that I know of) on any of the various shows. He was a cool character.

Do you know what the word "epic" means? Because you just redefined it. Great job.

Damn man, nice attention to detail!

The green optics on metal are interesting. Maybe he's ramped up on Chaos energy or something.

Now this is Sonic art I can get behind. I think it gives the kind of climatic battle feel the comics pull off. Sonic has always fought robots, but this pic makes me feel like the outcome is actually important. If animators could dupilcate that feel Sonic could reach a whole new level.

Metal kicks so much butt. Go Metal! I love the neon lights and the mud all over him and Sonic. :)
Redmadman3000 Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2006
oooh, neat neon highlights. Have to say that the first thing I thought was Robotnik pimped his Sonic mech... and then I hit myself, drank some coffee to calm myself and decided I have to say this is dramatic, wel proportioned, perfect everything and bow.

Clash of the Titans! You are extrordinarily talented- this is a masterpiece.
Go to Japan, slap Sonic Team in the face and convince them to start drawing Sonic properly again.
Totally stylish, mate....
