Sonic Redesigns by vaporotem Sonic Redesigns by vaporotem
After Mina the mongoose redesign i did, i wanted to play around with more characters from Sonic's world ( some that we will never see again probably ) :>
I posted it first at Ian's forum and forgot to post it in here ofcourse... MORE TO COME~

Some names were changed for sake of laugh:
Blershey, Blelias, Geoffey-poo, Tommy, Fulie-Yu, Feist, Some back Mina sketches
Merlin, Fiona, Leeta, Lyco, Sonia, Manic and Mogul.

In case of "Ken Penders Chronicles" SEGA can have room for these characters in Sonic Games hopefully in the future.

I think Mogul's head should be smaller in comparison to his body, so it would give a sense of scale and not look too cartoony.

Ayeeee, Merlin mah Nigga XD

I think that what Vap was going for (I dunno too much about Mogul, even if I've read a good deal of the comics, but if she's going for someone who's pretentious and show-off-y, ya know, Nouveau Riche, Vap succeeded).
TheSheepPen Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
Yeah :3

Interesting designs
cartoonking1 Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2014
This is awesome looking! :D  Have you considered doing one of Jules and Berrine?
SonicBlueRanger Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2014
Some great work here Vap.
Sonic-fan17 Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
Wow these designs are awesome!
Guardian-of-Legends Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2014  Student Digital Artist
It sort of looks like you planned on making Fiona raising just the middle finger, but then added another one so she wouldn't seem that offensive... I dunno, it just looks like it. ^^;
Anyway, WOW these are cool looking redesigns! Very original and creative. I'm very impressed!
Any idea how Scourge or Dr. Finitevus would look with a redesign?
thisiswherestuffis Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2014
gosh your style is so nice to look at. your choices in colour are so fun too!
Erose355 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2014  Student Filmographer
Well we are defiantly seeing Julie-Su back because she's part of the chaotix and we might see Leeta and Lyco but other than that I don't think we'll going to see the rest any more.  But loving the new designs! :)
ToaArcan Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Julie-Su is one of the characters that is definitely not coming back, actually.
Erose355 Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014  Student Filmographer
Really do you know why?
ToaArcan Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Well, it's a long and complicated mess, but basically, the reboot happened because Archie the company (Who are assholes) and former comic writer Ken Penders (Who is an asshole) got into a huge court case because Archie weren't paying Penders what he was owed. Penders then claimed ownership of the characters and stories he wrote, and filed copyrights on them. Archie sued him for this, and basically lost. They came to a settlement, but it apparently involved giving Penders money, and SEGA refused that idea and made Archie go back and reject the deal. It became another losing battle, and the case was dismissed, essentially leaving both of them able to use the cast- on Penders' conditions. Since Penders' stories were pretty much the backbone of the continuity, he started making his conditions ridiculous, like canonizing XYL (Which SEGA won't allow), reviving Knuckles' father, and acknowledging the comic he is planning to make with the characters as canon. Unsurprisingly, Archie refused this, cut their losses, and rebooted.

Of course, Penders' comic is going to crash and burn anyways, so we'll see what happens when Penders realises that he's spent all this money on a court case, so that he could make a comic that no-one wants to read. The only people who would read it would be Archie fans, but they don't want to give money to Penders after his and Archie's fighting cost them the characters they liked.

Of course, Archie aren't guiltless. They fired, sued, and removed one of their employee's names from every book he ever worked on. Who was this man? The creator of Archie Andrews, their mascot.
Erose355 Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014  Student Filmographer
Wow so all of Pender's characters are gone.....awwww man! I was actually liking juli-Su wow Penders' really is a butthole!:angry:  I mean that just screws up the whole story line! Penders is an idiot! Thanks for telling me this. I'm real sad and ticked cuz I actually liked some of Pender's characters and that means everything that involved the old story lines are gone just history. But in truth Penders as the story grew more complexed was getting crappy with the story lines and they got bad so did the art for the comics did. Anyways but thanks to that moron he just screwed up big time and Archie just lost lots of fans because of this crappy issue.
ToaArcan Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
Well, Penders wasn't the start of the problem. It was Archie screwing him out of what was his, and then tyring to sue him with no evidence to back their claims up. They brought it on themselves, it's just that Penders exacerbated matters by being a giant douche.
Erose355 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2014  Student Filmographer
Thanks a lot for telling me this it really made this problem less confusing
cartoonking1 Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2014
Actually Ken was going to sue first, but Archie beat him to the punch, and he sued because he got butt hurt over "Sonic chronicles"

This is positively beautiful.

Not to mention how all of your redesigns are pretty fitting given their character. Hell, even Mogul looks amazing.

Metsevyen! (At least I think that's Hebrew for 'excellent work'; my Hebrew's a bit stale. And I'm part Israeli too, lol.)
Jeezes718 Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2014
These are pretty good....but there is no way I can take Mogul seriously with a chili-bowl cut, it looks too funny
artisdeviantun Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
i like them ^w^ they are looking cuteeee :heart:
ll Featured By Owner Jan 8, 2014  Professional General Artist
Alas I am still not very famiiar with the characters in question, but I really like these character designs - the sonia and manic ones I do actually recognise so it's particualrly interesting to see the tweaks you've made to those two, but I'm also a really big fan of the pink twin dogs! Great job, keep 'em coming (would love to see what havoc you'd cause in the fleetway universe...:P)
clariktheking Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
i like merlins look since its less simple then the Archie design 
darkspeeds Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist

These are simply amazing. Love the re-designs, each with their own unique size, shape, expression and pose. Every small detail matters and looking at these is a breath of fresh air for me being a fan of the series. Oh and don't forget about the colors either. Great stuff!

Gonna post this out to ya if you're interested in contributing something back to Tracy Yardley:…

Hope to feature your artwork in the book and get it exposed to Archie staff like I did with my previous Sonic Art Collection magazine project. *thumbs up* 8-)
