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.

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

Holy crap this is EPIC!!!!:wow:

*Sees Sonic on the ground* NNNOOOO!!!!! *Starts running towards him, drawing my iridescent black katana, teeth baring*
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.
