With Sonic’s new super-form revealed, let’s take some time to reflect on some “super” moments from the past. Metal Sonic’s return in “Sonic Heroes,” a game that I really enjoy for some reason, was nothing short of awesome. BlazeTBW captures the moment Metal goes berserk and becomes an “overlord” in his piece “Fight with the Overlord.”
BlazeTBW drew this work for the Black Knight contest and didn’t win. Like I said with a previous rejected entry, the ones that were picked must be amazing if they didn’t accept this one. BlazeTBW sketched the work in pencil and uses her Wacom tablet, Photoshop, and Corel Painter X to color and detail the whole thing. She thinks that it is her best Sonic work to date and I certainly agree.
My own take on this work relates the expressions on Knuckles and Tails’ faces. I like to think that they aren’t grimacing over Metal Overlord and his ability to “ownz jOO,” but rather, why they don’t get a super form, something that we all questioned within the community when Heroes’ ending was revealed. Look at Knuckles, he’s so mad about not getting his super form! Haha…oh, I’m getting sidetracked. Nice work, BlazeTBW.
