To Halt Our World's End... by Hazard-the-Porgoyle To Halt Our World's End... by Hazard-the-Porgoyle

Sonic Vs. Emerl

As Eggman’s nefarious scheme to control the Gizoid succeeds, and promptly fails, Sonic finds himself with an impossible task to complete – destroy what he has fought so hard to create. With the most sophisticated creation of the Nocturnus now ready to bring the world to an end, will Sonic bring himself to end the free spirit he has shaped? A tragic tale unfolds…

Production Notes:
- It's been a little while since anyone's seen anything new from me, eh? Sorry about that. I've been trying to work on an advanced animation project, and while I can't complain much about its progress, it's still taking a long time. This picture only took about 3 days, just to give you a measure for the size of the animation project.
- Sonic and Emerl's poses are indeed a throwback to Sonic and Metal Sonic's poses from that iconic JP Sonic CD artwork. They aren't meant to be identical, but at least recognizable.
- Feel free to ask if you have any specific questions. If I went into all of the little nuances of this piece here, I'd be typing all day.

Concept - Sonic Team

Eggman: IT CAN'T BE! *explodes* :lol: heh and seems that Emerl did came back to life after restarting the game from the beginning lol. (just like when Tails said if they will ever play with Emerl again,. and Sonic agrees.)

Emerl's first battle with Knuckles? Yeah, that's a complete pain. I don't remember how I finally overcame that, but it was a slow process of the "perform one big attack then run and wait for Knuckles to approach again before using the same move again" variety. I think.

I am quite proud of the style I have developed over the years, and there was no reason to change it for a single image. Also, I might draw scenes from the Genesis era, but I don't purposefully make them look pixelated.

I couldn't resist - I figured this was a rare chance to draw Sonic battling a robot his size, so...

And a lot more people caught on to that when I first posted this than I thought.

Hazard-the-Porgoyle Featured By Owner Mar 13, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I believe the story worked well due to the "sub plot" concept. The episodes all had their own conflict and resolution that still added to the over-arching plot as a whole. It's a concept that seems to have fallen out if use lately.

Seems to have. Especially since back then I was still trying to figure characters out. (The only other game I'd played at the time was Sonic Heroes, which is what brought me to the Sonic series)

Either way, great job on the picture. :)

The first thing I remember seeing this was how much Emerl kicked my butt in this, well, the first time I played it. XD In all honestly, it perfectly suits the tense battle between them. It must have been tough for Sonic to battle a friend, but that's what made it more exciting. Great job!

I'm most certainly glad you like it. They did build this up to be one monumental battle indeed, and I remember first thinking: "Okay, so he's the final boss, but so what? I didn't make him that tough - this'll be easy!" Then I saw how fast his idle animation was, and "Oh, that's not good, is it?"
Spamming Trap and Shot attacks helped.

First of all, i love the throwback to the Sonic CD pose, very appropriate =)
I also like the inclusion of Dr Eggman being beaten prior to this fight, especially the look of the broken down mech.
The setting has also been reproduced well, in all it's neon goodness =D

Also can't help but think that Sonic looks a bit more "furry" than usual?

:iconhazard-the-porgoyle:
Hazard-the-Porgoyle Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm glad I added Eggman too. He's the last element I put in, and my sister kept whining, "but it's practically done already - just put it up!" I had to explain that it was just one of those elements I planned from the beginning and was not going to do without.
And Sonic... Furry on the inside or outside? If outside, that may be due to me adding a very slight glow to him to make him match the CD artwork more.

TrueKaoz Featured By Owner Feb 6, 2010  Student General Artist
Well it certainly paid off, would have seemed somehow emptier without :nod:
On the outside lol, I assumed it was probably the way he was lit. it just reminded me of some of the official art, where up close you can see strands of fur.

:iconhazard-the-porgoyle:
Hazard-the-Porgoyle Featured By Owner Feb 3, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Everything's custom. The planet was made with a little aid from a tutorial found here on dA, and the arrows are standard Flash and gradient work.
And oh yes, you saw what I did there indeed.

I like the portrayal, and the throwback to Sonic CD.

Even though Sonic Battle was a less favorite game in the series, Those final boss battles had me gripped.
Eggman being his most challenging, and then Emerl flippin' the fcuk out. Then Again... I found a way with Sonic to avoid being hit in the fight, so that bit was easy!
Eggman was still difficult.

Oh, this reminds me of a comic... [link]

Those two end bosses have their tricks, but thankfully have glaring faults in defense as well.

And I'm glad you brought up that comic. I try to regularly read NFR, and I'm sure I must have read that one before, but I just can't remember it. Fits perfectly. :)

An interesting prospect. I don't think I'd be the one to draw it, though. Then again, there a lot of pictures in my gallery I didn't think I'd be drawing.

Why thank you. The description turned out how I had hoped - the title, I'm in the middle with it. I use "world" and "end" too often...
Hm.

yeah it's too easy

Sonic vs Metal Sonic =D

now about the picture. good job, it's completly attractive. you used so many colors combined with a successful shading. yeah you agree, it's not dark here but the shading is as fabulous as your last drawing. look the characters, emerl is the best.

your realistic earth is really mysterious, you just never fail to drawing our beloved planet. ^^

nice details too
emerald pieces sonic's side and the crack egg mobile with robotnik on emerl's side.
it's like if your drawing said that it's Good Chaos (left) vs Bad Order (right)

lol it's my interpretation
