Sonic Boom Shadows by fennecthefox15 Sonic Boom Shadows by fennecthefox15
At the request of :iconagentwerehog:, here is my own version of the Sonic Boom Shadows with a bonus Hawaiian Shadow to boot.
Before I say anything else, I think it should be noted that Sonic was pretty much completely inspired by this picture: fennecthefox15.deviantart.com/…
Once I saw Sonic with the visor, I couldn't draw anything else in it's place. I tried SO HARD to come up with something original, but nothing I tried fit right. So, credit goes to SEGAmew for that one.

I imagine Tails looks pretty much the same as he usually does, but I wanted to do SOMETHING different on him, so I gave him a little bandana/scarf to wear.

Knuckles was based on the Knuckles Tribe Echidnas from Sonic Adventure. Since, you know, his clan and everything.

And then Amy is basically her Olympics outfit with a different color scheme.

Oh, and Hawaiian Shadow, can't forget him. XP

I don't think these are anywhere close to correct, I just did it for fun.

EDIT: As we are all aware by now, I was very, very off on a lot of them. Though I did predict a bandana/scarf would be on someone and I even gave Tails a tool belt! Plus I started making that Ancient Echidna- Knuckles comparison before most people- if not everyone. Once again, this was for fun, don't take it seriously.

Nice drawing of what the Shadows would look like XD


I am in the minority who think that Knuckle's redesign isn't a big deal, hell they still haven't showed his image yet. I think people are just jumping the gun, and prejudging the show too soon. Then again I don't consider myself a Sonic fan, I mean I like the games, but I don't see myself as a fan, then again Knuckles is my favorite character of the franchise. Still I think it's silly to judge his new muscular look without them showing his real design.

Then again opinions, you're welcome to dislike it for whatever reason lol

Thanks. ^^

I was one of those people who didn't really know what to think of it at first. Now I don't see it as a big deal because all the filled shadows by various people have seen actually have made Knuckles' build work so I think it'll be fine in the end. :meow:

But you're right, they're too quick to judge, especially since we know so little.

To be honest, and no fanbase is immune to this, because they all tend to overreact, but some in the Sonic fan base tend to bitch and groan at everything about Sonic these days. It's quite sad, and I'll be a hypocrite if I didn't say I overreact prematurely sometimes to things in my favorite franchises.

One thing I kinda do not like about the new cartoon that it will be in CGI, but then I like TMNT 2012, so I don't think the CGI aspect will make me hate it.

What determines my preference is how the story is, the writing, and the acting. And all the character's personalities

Ugh, yes. I'm sure EVERY fanbase has this problem, but I find the Sonic fanbase is most notorious for being filled with brats. Maybe our brats are just loader than every other fanbases' brats, but, still... you can't please 'em these days.

The CGI part never bothered me because I always thought the cutscenes in the games were animated well, so I never had a problem with that. My fears are most with the portrayal of the characters. I really don't want anyone turning into a big joke. Story and writing is also a pretty big factor, but if they can get the personalities right, I think I can at least tolerate it.

I guess I was so accustomed to the Cel shaded Sonic cartoons, I prefered that route. I'll give the cartoon a chance, and see if it stands on it's own. I just hope it's not too silly, I want some pretty good solid story lines. If the whole cartoon is just meant to be dumb down for kids then it's not for me

And agreed, you cannot please everyone, we all have different wants and tastes Quite frankly, I'm not too attached to the sonic franchise to care of the changes, I actually stopped playing Sonic after Unleashed. That is not to say Unleashed was bad, no way, I actually loved Unleashed. I consider it to be better then Sonic Heroes, Shadow the Hedgehog (Which I find it as a guilty pleasure, I do like that game) and it was a relief from the god awful Sonic 06 game.

Sonic fans hate Unleashed cuz of the Werehog thing, which I do find it unneeded myself, but I do see it as something to hate on the game.

Understandable, I'm sure many others are in the same boat. You know, when they're not complaining about Sonic's two extra quills. XP

I'm going to be honest, I never really played many Sonic games due to growing up in a Nintendo family, but I still really like the series and I'm sure if given the chance I'd enjoy a lot of the games in the series. Except Sonic 06, that one needs to go die in a fire. Shadow the Hedgehog's okay I guess, though it is a rather... interesting addition to the series. But I know of people who also like it so... yeah. Not sure what point I was trying to make.

I can understand the hate for the werehog, seeing as the series built up a reputation for speed, but I don't know if that's enough to hate the game as a whole. Then again, never got a chance to play it so I can't really say.

I seen some fans argue that Sonic mostly been about platforming then his speed. I mean yeah his old two bit games did have platforming as does his games in the present, but I argue that his speed is what makes him and his franchise, if anyone is known for platforming it's Mario. But yeah the Werehog thing was a gimmick at best, but Sonic Unleashed is a much better game then Sonic 06, hell some idiotic websites rated 06 higher then Unleashed, like WTF?

Funny how Sonic is now seen in Nintendo consoles, he is in other consoles as well. But he has had mostly Nintendo exclusive games, like Sonic Colors, Sonic Rush, the Mario and Sonic olympic games, Sonic lost world , and those fairy tale games for the Wii he was in. Funny how he was once Mario's main rival, and now he's in a Nintendo console, oh how times have changed! XD

I really, really did not like it though when they changed Sonic's voice in Sonic Color's and the rest of the cast. I do believe Jason Griffith did a much better job voicing Sonic.

I don't understand how '06 can be rated higher than anything. I can understand if someone sees it as a guilty pleasure, but better than any other game in the franchise? Hell no.

Yeah, he's like an honorary Nintendo character nowadays, isn't he? Strange how drastically things can change in time.

As for the voice cast, I find them all pretty much tolerable now for the most part. Tails I was okay with at the start, Knuckles didn't really change in my ears, Amy was annoying at first but I'm coping with it now, but Shadow just sounds weird. As for Sonic, I'm kinda still on the fence. I think he's doing an okay job, but it could definitely use some work. I agree, as of now Jason was the better Sonic.
