Ready for Round 2 by SaffuranLoL Ready for Round 2 by SaffuranLoL
I said I needed a little more juice to beat you... This may be a bit excessive but it'll get the job done.

I said I had something super in store and hopefully it (or at least the render) holds true to that. First of all, Happy JANUARY 28TH!!! Why? It is my one year anniversary on deviantArt (hence my paying homage in the background stylization.) However, as I was thinking of what to do I thought.. what haven't I done yet that is original for me.. and somethin hit me and said "Super Saffy.. enter stage right." To me most characters have a super form whether we choose to illustrate it or not.. all depends on the artist and what they want. This won't be a common appearance either only because traditional.. more "purpley" Saff is what I built upon over the year and is my overall preference, though making something horrendously shiny WAS very fun. ^^

I seem to have illustrated that pointing finger to a point (lol) that it has become part of his persona, a common taunt or so I would believe.. but when you are powered up and shiny.. nothing's impossible. Harmless irritant at one time may now become some sort of energy firing "fingerbang" cannon.. who knows. XD

Bang!

Songs that inspired this the most:
Burn In My Light - Mercy Drive

You - Bad Religion

Again, happy January 28th.. here's to another.. much better year for me and everyone else.

Don't suppose the title was inspired by Sonic Chronicles, was it?
After the first fight with Ix at Nocturne, Sonic drops down through a window and says, "Ready for Round 2?"

Nah, I've never beaten Chronicles because I haven't been trying so I didn't even know about that. It is just a common-ish quote that worked as the pic's title.

Interesting.

You didn't beat it because it's terrible, right?
Lol.

Also the final final boss is HORRIBLE.
I'm sure you can guess what it is...
But seriously, it takes easily ONE TURN to win, and that's it! That's the end! I mean, sheesh, the forms leading up to it were harder!
>_> <_< FAIL.

Nah it's a fun game to play, I just don't feel like beating it. Hell I decided to finally beat Unleashed last week after not playing it for weeks.

And that's because you are Super S in the last fight, gotta make it look convincing.

I absolutly love your character dude and how you stuck to the classic roots for the super form (unlike a lot of sonic fans on da, i happen to be one of them XD). A wonderful character. Great work.

Thanks, it means a lot to hear that you like Saff. And as for keeping him true and blue (.... gold) as a super form I just thought to myself that since hedgehogs seemed to always come out gold (golden warrior legend that the super form is based on) what would make him so "special" to be something like.. say.. Neon blue. xD

Plus gold suits him I'd say. =P

Thanks again.

There wasn't so much shading here only because I couldn't think of a way to appropriately shade it but I'm really happy that you like what you see. And beating someone upside the head with a stepladder sounds pretty funny when I visualize it. xD

Happy you liked the music inspiration as well man. ^^

I'm totally not late at commenting on this. Not at all... In fact I'm early. Everyone else is late. End of story.

Well damn, where do I start. The lineart is so perfectly smooth, it makes me jealous. You've got Saff looking nice and badass here. Lets just hope it's not Agg's ass he's about to kick. XD The coloring is flawless and the simple use of shading gives this picture the perfect amount of depth.

And a random observation maybe, but the fuzzy bit on his ears, I fucking love that. XD

Simply put this is your best piece of artwork yet and I look forward to your second year on DA brings.

XD Thanks Agg!

No way it's Agg he would be lookin to pound into the dirt, maybe a super pillow fight of dumbness of something but not face breaking a good bud. xD

Happy you like it, while some will disagree about it being the best it is at least a nice pic and I'm happy you find it to be my best yet. ^^

Pffft dude you already know how fucking brilliant I think this is. My favorite thing about it is the pose, obviously. I LOVE how he's pointing right at me! :lol: You did such an amazing job with it, it just looks so spot on perfect. The shoes and gloves look fantastic too, the shading makes them stand out so much :)

He... won't look so serious when he sees that water balloon off to the side heading straight for his face :D

But it looks cool. I like how the aura makes him seem shiny.

For a first it isn't bad at all, you need to see how I started out to know what I mean. XD

As long as you stick with your gut and take inspiration from others styles and slowly improve your own unique way of doing things, the only way to go is up.
