Metal Sonic - 5 Years Later by ShadOBabe Metal Sonic - 5 Years Later by ShadOBabe
Dun, duh-duh, dun dun, dun DA!! *fanfare*
It's the next character for my Sonic 5 Years Later series!!

It's Metal Sonic!! :clap:
I'm really proud of this one. I was really worried about whether or not I would be able to pull off the robotic, metalic texture, but it turned out GREAT!!

Whoohoo!! :heart:
Alright, so anyway, on to describing the character.

5 Years Later Metal is the same metalic menace we all know and love, but he's recieved some SERIOUS revamping from his creator Dr. Eggman.
For starters (if you hadn't noticed already) HIS LIMBS AND HEAD ARE DETACHED!! XD
(no, I've never played Rayman, this has nothing to do with that XD)

You see those dark metalic orbs on each of his limbs? That's Eggman's greatest invention for his little invention here.
It's an all new metal substance Eggman created himself just for his new Metal. It's a HIGHLY magnetic, liquid metal (a bit like mercury in that respect).

Metal Sonic here can control the magnetic pull on his detached limbs by manipulating this substance.

For example, let's say he wanted to grab an enemy. He could simply send one of his arms flying at them without even changing positions. Then the arm would grab the enemy and pull them back for the real thrashing.

He can alter the form of the large orbs where his hand would be to form many differnt shapes.

He could turn it into a mace, or a blade, or simply a hand to grasp things with.

He's one of the most deadly things to have ever emerged from Eggman's workshop.
But as we ALL know, EVERYTHING that comes out of his workshop has some sort of flaw.

Hilariously enough, this Metal Sonic is only a killer when ordered to be by his master.
At all other times he is simply a curious, knowledge hungry, little critter. He likes to sit in front of the televison and furiously scan the channels or speed read every book he can get a hold of. He'll mimic anything he finds interesting, which annoys old Egghead to no end. XD

Will our newest Metal Sonic become the demise of Sonic the Hedgehog, or will he just get too smart for his own good?
Heehee, you'll just have to guess. XD

Please enjoy and let me know what you think!!

This is my first critique, but i've seen some, so i'll give it a shot *sweatdrops*
Anyways, first thing i see that is really good is that he has a few more vents on him, so that would work with the upgrades very well.
The detatched body-limbs part it very startegedic, something eggman would have definatley tried to strive for. I especially think that the magnets are a good way to keep thos limbs from going with-way-what-way, seeing as they are probably calibrated for their matched ball on the torso. the detatchabily would be very efficient also beacause it would be easier to miss him when stricking.
The strips of white and red metal are a great contrast, making him stand out more.
Now drawing technique (i guess?)
The thing black lines give a good "classic" feel to the picture, and the shading goes very well with the type of lineart. The shading give the metallic look, yoet it's not so complicated as to add the reflection of the things around him (if there were stuff round him) wich also adds to that "classic" feel.
The image is simple, witch is good for an introductory image, beacause to many details and we would look everywhere but not realize the general image of what is being potrayed.
MS is not your char, but you did make him extremely original, most lickely enough that you could take this guy and copy-right him.

I hope i was fair and that what i said is wrong to the majority of the deviants.
What do you think?

I love your idea for the curious nature. He reminds me of... oh, that's right, Aximilli Esgarrouth Isthill from Animorphs. I think that sonic is not going to last long against him. the metal morphing orbs that you mentioned, a real way to fight. the metal texture was rather good, and i think you should really consider continuing this but the quill design? Blew me away!! and i liked his personality. i think that if you made a story about this, i would read it until the Rapture. what else can i say Hmm. oh, try to make his eyes look a little less like slits of red paper.
and now my rating.
Vision: 5 it was very good.
Originality: 2.5 it has been done before, yet not quite as mind blowing as this.
Technique: 5 well drawn.
Impact: 4 I think you could have done an inner diagram of his weaponry, equipment, and design.

Oh Metal Sonic you got fancy, pretty damn awesome. I love Metal Sonic one of my favourite characters and he looks great here. Does he still know everything Sonic's thinking and does Sonic still know everything he's thinking? STRANGE, ISN'T IT!

I didn't plan for this Metal to be able to read Sonic's thoughts, but it's not a bad idea. I'll have to think about it more.

Glad you like it!!

Expression of Metal Sonic seems to me a look of "Oh, finally I am a heroine." Liked this your drawing. If you have time, go to my gallery and comment on my Metal Red.
