Mecha Sonic by stucat Mecha Sonic by stucat
+Full view recommended to see details+

This was a challenge. Over the past three or four weeks, Iíve been clicking away on this pic in what ever spare time I could scrounge. I always though Mecha Sonic was cool from Sonic and Knuckles as a kid, so here is a rendition I completed of him now nearly tens years after that game. Using some sprites, I saw that had had the one eye and is the orb that powers up, not from his belly. Looked like he had spring arms in the sprite too (well to me anyways). The other challenge was to use freehand for this pic as I have neglected it for a while and I have never ever used it to do a full drawing. Everything in this pic was done in freehand, even the rendering, it all just lots of layered gradients (I found a good use for them for once) and why it took so long to do. The BG was a simple wand trace as Iíve already suffered over Mecha himself. But I played with the colours in Photoshop to get the desired result before I used the trace tool. So yeah my first piece of vector art. And it Mecha Sonic not the usual Metal who is (c) Sega and Angel Island in the BG. Art (c) Me

He did. Then they did that...weirdness to him in Sonic Heroes. Still, he *did* get his own game, in a way...

Probably. Still, they're both awesome. I think his best treatment was probably in Sonic CD.

lol If you didn't notice, I was refering to the fact that the picture says "Mecho" instead of "Mecha"

stucat Featured By Owner Apr 12, 2013
that's just the pixel font, if you look carefully there is a couple notches taken out of the left side to make it asymmetrical vertically to make it more an 'a' shape.

Most badass of the "robo" Sonics. I seriously don't understand how Metal got so popular.

Yeah this design was great. That is an interesting point though, maybe because it was featured in that Japanese movie.

At least what most people think's the next in the design of Silver/Mecha Sonic appeared for Adventure 1 =)

the one in SA1 was a bit different from the S&K version, but cool seeing another design for sure

I think being silent like Metal sonic was in the old Japanese movie with some servo motor sounds would be rad as well :]

Though I am more of a Metal Sonic fan, it is nice to see Mecha Sonic get some recognition too. The colouring and detail alongside the shading is superb. And I love how you managed to put Angel Island in the background. Amazing feel of nostalgia from this picture too. Brilliant work.

Metal will always be a classic enemy for Sonic, but I really liked the shape of Mecha and thought I'd give it some illustrative love :U

I've always wondered what it would be like to see him come back. Like his remains have been slowly mutating or something and he plans a vendetta on metal sonic.

why would it have an vendetta against metal sonic?
Sonic and knuckles were the ones who smashed it up :0

metal sonic Obviously replaces him and he feels a sense of betrayal at the hand of Eggman.

hmmmm thats a bit weird... didn't know that. They should twaek the story to make it fit because Obviously metal was more successful

stucat Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2011
not really sure what they would have to change story wise to make any of this fit. I just think metal Sonic's design was more popular with the crowd since it was featured in the Japanese OVA.
