Spring Yard Zone
Vs. Boss

Sonic encounters and conquers the dizzying pinball features that South Island has to offer, and at the end, he finds the persistent Dr. Eggman back with another unpredictable machine. The suspended blocks create the only decent foothold, and the Doctor has come prepared with that in mind...

Production Notes:
- Another redraw here. You can view the old version at the bottom of my before and after piece here: hazard-the-porgoyle.deviantart…
- Let's see, stuff I got wrong last time that I tried to get right here:
1. Plant matter used to look like a bunch of blurry smudges.
2. Foreground blocks might as well have been upscaled sprites with how lazily I drew them before.
3. I honestly couldn't have been bothered last time to check what the tops of the buildings looked like, so I took my screenshot's top margin at face value and drew the tops devoid of any details. *Headdesk*
4. Last time I drew the far background as sky, but it turns out it's the side of Spring Yard's mountain range. *Headdesk*

Alright, but seriously, it's time I got something genuinely new in this gallery already.
Until then, folks.

Concept - Sonic Team
Piece - *Hazard-the-Porgoyle

A really incredible picture of Sonic avoiding Eggman attacking him with a spike on his Egg-bot with the classic Spring Yard Zone in the background! I so love the poses and expressions! Very magnificent!
This all looks very 3D! Fantastic work! :la:

Indeed I've fallen out of creating boss pieces as of late. I'm still working, still creating, and I feel pretty good about my current project. It's a long term one, so it will be a while longer before details trickle out. Looking forward to that day.

Awesome redo again, man.  Love how you made Robo look bigger in comparison to Sonic this time too.  Makes him looks more like a crashing threat to him.  B-)

Indeed. Before I put too much emphasis on the perspective, but not even in an accurate way. Close things were unnecessarily huge, other things, not so much, and it didn't matter how they scaled to each other. Truly, in those days of old, I was undeniably the twit.

Glad you like the improvements.
Thank you for this comment.

Surely, if this was Robotnik's plan in the first place, he could've removed the bridge entirely.

Ever since I was a kid I always thought that this was Eggman's laziest design for a boss fight!

Indeed the Doc left much to be desired in those old days. I read something that helped change my opinion on these Sonic 1 bosses though. Someone posited that Eggman really wasn't prepared for opposition in the beginning. He thought he'd just stroll in, make badniks, make them search the island for the Chaos Emeralds, and that would be it. Sonic through a monkey wrench in that plan, but the doctor didn't have any greater plans than "stick whatever attachment I can find to the bottom of my Egg Mobile, and pray I can kill Sonic with it." By the time of Sonic 2, he was prepared for Sonic better, and that's why his bosses seemed more complete.

That's what I like to think anyway.

This is indeed an interesting theory but we both know it's bullcrap, besides Sonic 2 still had some lazy designs, MPZ boss screams lazy to me, but there's nothing more lazy than sticking a drill on the vehicle's ass in my opinion XD

You say "we both know it's bullcrap" like I suddenly agree with you or something. I do not. I still think "single attachment on the bottom of the Egg Mobile every single time" shows how unprepared Eggman was compared to every other boss that followed. Say what you will about the laziness of Sonic 2's bosses, but not a single one stooped down to the singular attachment thing.

Not all bosses from Sonic 2 were lazy, I agree most of them seem more "prepared" but you can't say the one in MPZ isn't a lazy attachment.

I cannot for the life of me figure out what you mean when you say MPZ. If you mean Metropolis Zone, I advise a different acronym.

No worries. We should know each other well enough by now to have the little debates in light spirits. Now, as far as the Metropolis boss goes, indeed the Egg Mobile itself had only the single attachment, but he made darn sure those orbiting eggs would be a pain the rear. He had a good 5 different attack patterns/methods of inflicting pain. Not bad if you ask me.

why doesn't Eggman just move slightly and stab Sonic?

Hazard-the-Porgoyle Featured By Owner Nov 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That's what he tries to do in the battle - impale Sonic - it's just that Sonic keeps moving out of the way, hence why he keeps destroying the blocks.

Got anything to say about the piece while you're here?

Still fantastic as always and since I now know you're the sonic boss artist I can think about this a bit differently. I do find this one to have a lot more pizzazz I guess u can since unlike the previous artwork I stated look beautiful it was more like just the boss fight it's self, to me this one feels like it's more in the moment which I find very appealing and I think adds to it. I do love your work as always and hope to see more of it
