Sonic Artists of dA by sapphii Sonic Artists of dA by sapphii
I've been wanting to do this for quite some time, but never got the chance up until now

I wanted to try my hand at the styles of all of my favorite Sonic artists here on dA (though doing a collab probably would've been easier ^^;) Not only are these the best of the best Sonic artists here (in my opinioin :)), they're also very nice friends who have made this fanart account of mine the more enjoyable to go on :thanks:

In order(excluding myself :XD:: :iconrontufox:, :iconetsucocoa:, :iconaerobian-angel:, :iconmog17:, :iconmylafox:

You all rock so hard, not only in Sonic art, but original art/other fanarts :D I hope I didn't mess your guy's styles up too much, its not that easy to partake in mimickry, since all of you guys are way better at drawing Sonic than I am :XD: plus, you all use tablets and I do not, so the feel of the style is a bit different ^^;

I also wanted to make this a special tribute to :iconetsucocoa:

Since yesterday she deactivated her account under unknown circumstances. Cocoa, I may not know why you deactivated or if your ever coming back, let alone reading this, but I just want to say that none of us want you to leave. You have been one of the greatest inspirations to me for Sonic art, and original art, and I, along with several other people, would hate to see you leave forever. You really helped me out and comforted me when I almost decided to deactivate, so now its my turn.

If you ever see this, I really hope you like it :)

These styles do not belong to me, they belong to their respective owners, I only mimicked them

YOU SHOULD FEEL TERRIBLE!!1! Haha, sorry, I just get really sentimental when it comes to art. Like when I look back at pieces, even it's the stupidest ugliest thing ever (like kid art), I remember how I was feeling and how life was at that point and get super reminiscent :XD: So I'd come back to look at this every so often =) Glad to see much of your art unstoraged now!

i came back on for a bit to let you know that i ADORE THIS. ;______;

i am in awe, and i have been ever since :iconmylafox: showed this to me. i'm so very honored that you chose to feature me in this. ;~; i was all fjsldkjlksjdadlfjslkaf *BOOM* *___*

i could instantly tell which one was mine even before i read the description! (does that make me conceited? xD)

what you said in the description about me deactivating made me wanna cry, cause at the time no one really knew that i left due to an ailment. you are seriously one of the sweetest people i've met, and what you had to say really touched my heart.

you, sapphi, rock so hard <333333333

hats off to all the other sonic artists you did as well! they rock! ;D

Thank you so much! Why wouldn't I feature you? Your such a good friend and an amazing artist, I'd be dumb not to :XD:

Really? Whew, I'm so relieved, I'm told quite oftenly that they all look the same lol :rofl: I dont think thats a sign of being conceited though :XD:

Aw thank you so much! :heart: I remember noticing when I started sketching your part of this picture, so I guess I was one of the first to find out, I felt so devistated :cries: I'm so glad you came back :hug:

So this is the image you were trying to get her to see. When you spoke to me I was expecting something a bit larger. Like an image that would probably have something a bit different. Like a dedication to her. But this seems to be something for quite a few people.Well, It looks pretty good. I've actually seen someone do something similar to Super Mario and damn his ass got a Daily Deviation for it which shocked the shit out of me. Well since she's back I guess I'll have to see whether or not she wants to retain her position as an admin. Damn if only Anna would have stayed! :D

Lol actually I do have a larger version of this thing, though it was so huge, I didn't want to cause an lag or something like that that ^^; Ah I see what you mean, though I hope I at least she likes it, as I wanted to make something for everyone, but didn't have the time to do five picture for everyone, so I put them together :XD:

Seriously??? Someone got a DD for doing something like this? Man thats weird, I'd totally want to see what it is :XD:

todd18 Featured By Owner Jun 19, 2011
It isn't weird. Of course he would get a DD for it. It's FAWKING Mario and that series is boss hands down. Media has chosen Mario to be the godfather of gaming. In NYC, we have our own store called Nintendo world located on 10 Rockefeller Plaza
New York, NY 10020-1903. It's all about Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, Metroid and other first party games. Sonic or any other franchise is nowhere to be seen here unfortunately.

*ahem* Anyway, I cannot link you to it because I do not know where to find it. It is not in my favs and it is not in my downloads anywhere. But these are nice artist. It's hard for me to draw Sonic or watch a Sonic artist. Not after all those games I saw from 2006 to 2009. I couldn't deal with it anymore. But other artist see the light differently. Some have hope in the series. Some have said Mario and co. and other franchises suck. Couldn't really say though. But as long as you like it and it keeps you drawing, that's the true goal to be gained on this image here. And it is shown. And so far over one hundred people agree with you.:D So what keeps me drawing? This guy right here! *points to the right*

OH MY.
I'M AWESTRUCK. C:

This is amazing. Just amazing. I rather like the emulation of all these styles, you've pulled them ALL off marvelously well! I feel honored that you would choose me out of the Sonic fan-artist crowd, and I would REALLY like to repay you someway. Again, I thank you. CX

And a great big shoutout to the other talented artists from the pic! They rock too!

Oh my god!! I am so terribly honored, Sapphi! This was so nice of you..! Thank you so very much. ;~; You're certainly one of the best here, too. I can't believe you don't use a tablet! That's really impressive. O:

I'm in love with the monochromatic color scheme you've used here. It's so beautiful!

I wish I could write more, but I need to head to sleep... Don't you worry! I'm contacting Sam right now... She needs to see this!!!

Thanks again, sweety! :hug:

Aw your totally welcome! I hope I didn't butcher your style, it was the hardest of the rest since I'm no good with serious Sonic ^^;

Thank you so much :heart: I hope Cocoa likes it too, her style was pretty hard as well ^^;

Mine's the one all the way to the right, correct? Because I totally love that one! xD You didn't butcher it at all-- you made my style look better! Haha... Thanks again!

And by the way... Here's what Sam had to say!
"PLEASE tell sapphi that I'm in love with the picture ;____; about to friggin' cry tears of happiness, man... C':"

She adores it!! <3

Pfft, naw! You're really great at drawing Sonic. I struggle every time! ;~;

She loves it, and I linked her to the pic on dA-- so I'm sure she knows which one's hers since they're in order. c:

I hope she comes back soon, too! She said she may actually come back in about a week, which is good news!

You do? It really doesn't seem like it, your drawings always suggest that it comes easy to you :XD: You definitely make it look a lot easier than it really is ^^;

Thank goodness, I've been concerned about that, since I've been told by someone and my sister that they all look the same and I should try harder ^^; Oh well :XD:

Wow that sure is quick, can't wait to have her back on the site :D

You're not gonna believe this... but just five minutes ago before even seeing this I started drawing a Sonic in your style. It was so bad and I was so embarrassed that I closed it without saving though :XD: Ugh, trust me, it was so bad, but the point is I thought of you and your art today and felt so inspired by you that I wanted to make you gift art :thanks: So seeing this piece that's part tribute to me is so freaking awesome...!!!

I'm gonna write a better comment here later... this is just me writing a knee-jerk reaction, but I wanna give better feedback on it soon! =D

Aw you were really? That's so sweet rontu! :blush: I totally want to see it, even if you think it looks really bad, I'll bet it looks amazing! :thumbsup: I'm so honored you were trying the style I draw Sonic it, I feel special now :iconimveryhappyplz: Glad you like my interpretation of your style, Sonic CD style is so fun to do! :D Though the quills were for some reason a bit difficult to draw :noes:

:iconrontufox:
rontufox Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2011
Ah, like I said I closed it without saving so it's gone forever... but I probably wouldn't have shown you anyway cuz it was embarrassingly bad :XD: Buuuut, I will remedy that in the near future! :lol:

And now for my better comment on this piece! I love how my-style Sonic looks the cutest out of the bunch! And the shortest. That's cuzza the Sonic CD style of course, and I love seeing that style. His pose is also really nice. I really like your Sonic in the background looking all concerned and confused at all the other Sonics :XD:

Don't worry, I have a heck of a time drawing Sonic's quills in every pic I make of him. If they're angled just a tiny bit off, they look bad =/ So I kinda can't believe you drawing five different styles of him!

I think... it would be incredibly awesome if we all did actually do a collab together... I'd totally do it. Only I'm not sure how to unite them, since *MylaFox and !Etsucocoa's styles are so much more realistic than the rest of us :noes:

sapphii Featured By Owner Jun 17, 2011  Hobbyist
Lol darnit, I wouldn't think it would be that bad :XD:

Aw thanks! :heart: Well it definitely had to be the cutest, its Sonic CD Sonic we're talking about after all :lol: Lol thanks! I hope the focus isn't on my Sonic too much, since this was mainly for you guys ^^;

Aw man I know :noes: that was the one part I had the most trouble on, I kept erasing because it would end up being a tad inaccurate :/ Haha thanks :D it wasn't the easiest task, but it sure is do-able, and it sure was fun too :lol:

Ah yes... definitly would've been an awesome project :nod: I really wanted to, I just know if everyone would be up to it, or have enough time on their hands :( Plus, I've always wanted to make a gift for everyone, so I took the chance :XD: Lol yeah their styles are much more realistic than ours and Aero's, not sure how that would play out ^^;
