Blaze - 5 Years Later by ShadOBabe Blaze - 5 Years Later by ShadOBabe
Tada!! It's 5YL Blaze!!
I LOVE this one... XD

Just like the Silver 5YL pic, I don't know much about Blaze because I haven't played through her games. I just know she from a different time period (same as Silver's), she's a princess, and apparently from what other people say, she's really up tight. XD

Oh, and she's a pyrokinetic. :w00t:

Anyway, you'll have to forgive the little mess up I did with the tuffs of fur on the sides of her face. They're supposed to make more of a gentle slope down the sides.

So her head looks a little rounder instead of the ovalish shape.

Oh, well!! I still love it!! :love:
So five years later, Blaze is now 19, same as Silver.

I grew her hair out and gave her some bangs. She also has some lovely new jewlery. I loved the pearls trailing from her tail (even if it was a pain to color XD).

And I think what I like most is the outfit I gave her. Very princessy, but in a bit of a sharp, elegant kinda way. Kept her hot pink and purple colors, and added a little bit of the fire theme in there.

And I'm most proud of the lace hanging from the bottom. I learned how to start doing the semi-transparent look. It turned out very nice I think.

So that's pretty much it!! I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!!

Espio 5 Years Later is next!! :ninjastar:
Love ya!! :heart:

Critique by Shinmera Mar 20, 2010, 4:52:06 PM
This is my first critique but I think I can say something useful about this picture.

First of, this picture catched my eye as I was browsing through my inbox.
Mainly because it has it's own style and can almost be considered a new character, compared to the original Blaze. I can imagine very well that Blaze could look like this when she's older.

What's missing here is a background. This is a pose and character that would really be supported by a background, so it could have a bigger impact and vision with one. With just that White, it looks a bit empty. I understand that this is supposed to show the character itself, but still, it looks to me like it's begging for a background (which I'm sure you could have made).

This is a Sonic-style character and so I can't give you full stars on Originality, even though the design of her clothes and accessories is really good.

The technique is really nice, I like the shading and the not too strong lines. A bit stronger contrast wouldn't have hurt though.

Overall, it's a good looking and pretty original piece of fan artwork! :)
What do you think?

:icondyed-in-black:
Overall, one of the best aspects of this piece is how true you corresponded with Blaze's character (parallel universe flame princess). For five years, she does look a bit younger than I'd assume for being of nineteen though does, without a doubt, look older to an extent. I love the visual addition of more gold and red because, as mentioned before, it emphasizes her character and is done very well.
I really enjoyed this work though X years later Sonic characters have become less and less original though I still loved this one. Unlike most, Blaze is not seen in the X year later drawings hence I've wondered about her possible design in a future timeline.
Great job, once again.

Um Blaze isn't from the future, she's from another dimension and she lives in the same time period as Sonic not silver.

GAH, Blaze and Silver's lore has always eluded me.
Not that I really care a tone, but yeah, I get different info from different sources.
I should just go look at the Sonic wiki again.

Plus Sega did repcon/erased Sonic 2006 out of existience, Sonic 2006 never happened and it's not a prequal to Sonic Rush and Sonic Rush is Blaze's true back story, Sonic 2006 is not. I learned that from Clementj642 Reviews Sonic 2006 Part 6, He talks about what's worng with the story.

In 5 years later, I think of Espio as a samurai rather than a ninja.

A samurai is not a level that ninjas progress to.
Ninja and samurai were mortal enemies during the time they were used as assassins and protectors.

The last entry I made in this folder was three years ago.
How'd you guess? XDD

Heh, but really, I haven't drawn any Sonic art in a very LONG time.
After doing for eight years I got kind of bored with it. But maybe I'll come back to it one day. I'd like to edit a lot of these designs.

I'm pretty much going to say the same thing I said with Silver.
SWWEEEET!!! Silver and Blaze are perfect. I love the small amount futuristic themes you sneaked into there and Silver's pic. It's mind blowing. I love it.
