With school finally winding down, I can upload more often now. After hearing about the Sonic Boom TV show coming out, I made this in anticiaption...though I didn't really have until now to color it in. I decided to redesign Kraus as if he were in the Sonic Boom univers, and I'm satisifed with outcome. The changes I've made to him weren't too drastic and involves a metal collar for looks, redesigned mech arms and jet boots to look more Holy like, and slightly altered hair.
Now on to the show. First I'll say that I was looking forward to the show, more than the games because, well, Sonic games are ALWAYS coming out, but how often do we hear about a new Sonic SHOW coming out. I mean the last Sonic TV show we had was Sonic X, a show that became worse over time. Sonic Boom is...alright. It's nothing "amazing" but nothing "terrible". I'm glad they expanded more on the characters' personalities and gave them some depth and some pretty funny lines. However, these new personalities are also kind of a problem. Sonic and Knuckles look like they traded personalities. Sonic seems more serious and lonesome now. Knuckles is more cocky and fun loving, but now has a cookie cutter. Mr. Meathead, "Me strong but dumb" personality. Knuckles may have been gullible and slow at times, but he wasn't stupid. Tails is the same, but just uses more flowery words. Why can't they make him behave more like a child. Amy seems to be less of the annoying younger sister type, and is now more of a Motherly type. It's cool they ditched her whole "I love Sonic" thing and made it more of a secret now, but they still left in the whole "girly girly" part of her. "Girl Power!" Ugh, We get it Amy, you're a girl. Sticks the Rac...I mean Badger is just Tarzan but a little girl with a mean throwing arm...who is also a massive believer of conspiracies. With all that said, I still think the show is worth the watch and I'm glad I can wake up every saturday to watch it. *sigh* reminds me of my childhood. Actually, there is one gripe I have with the show. The intro. Remember whne the intro to a cartoon was one of its mot defining features? Well, cartoon developers don't see to think that anymore. Sonic Boom's intro is the definition of generic, and considering the competition it has with Past Sonic cartoons, I have every right to think that. Why didn't they make a modern remix of "Sonic Boom" from the Sega CD game?
Now I can't say anything about the game, but I see a lot of gamers completely dumb on this game. I haven't played it, but from what I've heard, I think I'm making a good decision not to buy it. However, it feels like they made this game JUST so they could make new designs for the characters. I'm fine with that, but I didn't really see the point. I mean, what's with all the sports tape? Did the designers think it looked cool or something. Maybe on human characters, but not Sonic characters. Anyway, hope you enjoy my drawing.
