Flames of Desperation by darkspeeds Flames of Desperation by darkspeeds
Can I just say that I give my applause to the proactive fans of this unique universe in the Sonic series, originally home to the U.K. Sonic community, known as Fleetway's Sonic The Comic series.

You can watch these guys on deviantART by clicking on the icon next to me - :iconstc-fleetwayclub:

You can check out their 'officially unofficial' website via Sonic The Comic - Online!. It's loaded with comics, editorials, fan letters and awesome stuff that continues off from the last official publication that is Sonic the Comic # 223.


The proactive team of StC Online is incredible and I thank them for their inspirations and for keeping the series alive to all the fans who still hold their hearts out for more adventures from the StC universe!

Just a quick note on what made me draw this, this was actually done more than 3 months ago, right after I got back home to Perth, Western Australia from my visit to the United Kingdom.

I've attended Summer of Sonic 2010 summer last year and right next to my booth was none other than the StC gang themselves! They were promoting their artwork and website by showcasing their talent by the tables.

I had a great time checking out their stuff and was even offered their merch!! I was super lucky to have been able to purchase their limited edition 'Sonic the Comic #250 Special', it wasn't for sale but I still managed to get it. :)

Check out this photo where the StC team signed the merch I got from them! Too cool.

So when I got back home I've promised 'Stiv Thermal' :iconstivthermal: (who is currently the managing director of StC - Online!) and the StC team that I'll contribute something in return for their kind offering over at SOS2010.

This wallpaper was the result! Hope you'll enjoy! ;)

Ebony the cat.

She is a sorceress who was able to temporarily remove all the evil from Super Sonic.

You probably already found out who the fleetway chars were, the "mary sue cat" is named Ebony(who was a friend to Fleetway Super Sonic when he became a pacifist), and the character behind Sonic is the Super Sonic in the Fleetway universe(Fleetway Super Sonic),where he is evil and just plain destructive(powerful enough to destroy the planet),Sonic turns into him in times of great stress or when in contact with too much chaos emerald radiation.

This is a nice piece of work that certainly continues to show your skills and how you grow gradually with each step via original or fan related work. What you've done here is nice and to see you approach something from the world of Fleetway is a nice change of pace, it shows how you would tackle the theme and style of show whilst adding your own touches into the creation through design and colour. What you've done is good and it feels strong, what's nicer though is how you've focussed your style on that of the Fleetway look rather than the coming drawing approach of sonic found today. It works well and feels much more homely to the focus of the comic, more so with the additions of Blaze, Super and Sonic along with one of them I forgot the name of merged all in one shot to open the addition of the current story. The character design of sonic and super is certainly very vivid and really shows how you've unlocked a looser and freed style of drawing that adds more the appeal and energy of the work you create, it might have bee nice to have the same done to the other two ladies rather than face one another or towards sonic, but that doesn't stop it from have such a strong appeal.

Yeah man going for that StC look on Sonic was quite a challenge. :) I should do more of these in the near future so that I can explore the fascination of the series! ;)

Btw, how are you doin lately'?

Cool, I just knew about fleetway's comic before, but I didn't know it was still running until last night. The world is full of interesting surprises and coincidences. Now, I'm trying to catch up by reading back issues.
Cool man!

No worries, I'm glad that this drawing has encouraged you to check out the StC - Online series! They put in massive amounts of time and effort to get up to where they are (and they're not even getting paid to do it!)

Have to admit. While the comic was well done, kinda dissapointed that Ebony, my fave StC character is sort of being "bad" now. :( I really hope forgiveness for her actions.

As for the comic itself, I love the art. :)
Reply
:icondarkspeeds:
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah I was hoping that Ebony would be more of a good person but then again I can't cast judgment till I know the full story. She's probably doing the right thing from her perspective because she just wants to save a friend who wholeheartedly believes he can change for the better. ;)

Yeah, while that is respectful, one can be a "villain" by how one gets to that by personal means. Such as taking Super Sonic from Sonic without his permission and endangering them all.
