Shades The Hedgehog Ref by Jetstreamx Shades The Hedgehog Ref by Jetstreamx
Wanted to practice my Sonic X style for a character ref of Shades the Sissyhog. This is all so I can soon begin work on a tutorial for doing your art on open source software. This would be doing linework on Inkscape, and doing colors in gimp. I intend to post this tutorial on youtube whenever I'm done.

Shades created by Snax and Shigamado.

I think I did it that way because some of my friends think Shades should have a different, more girly voice, than Shadow's. I wanted it to have the same sound, but a different presentation, similar to how Luke and Asch have the same voice in Tales of the Abyss, but Luke's is more snobby and Asch's is more harsh.

I don't often assign theme songs to characters o.O

Unfortunately, that's a problem on our end. Every time we make progress on getting it back up, we all kind of forget about it. I will have to pester Shigs and our site admin some more.

hey Jetstreamx if Shades and the real Shadow actually met face to face, how would they react to one another?

Jetstreamx Featured By Owner Jan 26, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I could imagine Shadow just brushing it off like it's an every day thing. I imagine Shades following him around and pelting him with questions, and being all "Golly gee!" I think after a bit, Shadow would eventually get noticeably annoyed.

We've been working on some pages. As for the site, I honestly have no idea what happened. I think our coder is going to get around to fixing it when he's done with his new page uploading system.

As for the site's comic glitch, good luck! I hate when I have my technology and video games get glitched up so it is not fun to have things happen.

Oh man, I don't know if I could imagine Shades or Shadow with a personality switch. I know that's kinda weird to say, since I drew Shades without his pink shirt for so long, but like, I really tried hard to add to his personality and mannerisms without destroying what Snax and Shigs had already done before him *I like to have him extend his pinkies when bugged out, for example.*

Oh gosh, I'm rambling. DDD=

LOL don't sweat about it :pat: I LOVE what you did with SHADES the sissy hog =D lol he makes me laugh!! :clap: especially when Amy wanted him to call her PINKIE PIE LOL did you know thats the name of a MY little pony? LOLOL

=D to tell the truth I'm more of a sonadow person :bow: and I hate shadamy. but I do see Shadow and amy more of like a Big brother and little sister relationship:clap: just for my opinion =D I LOVE SHADES and the comic!! :squee: :squee: =D

and yes in my fan-fic Shadow the hedgehog movie Shadow actually acts like Shades in the comic because I made Shadow more sweet and nicer than his grouchy self and he's like a Father figure.

That's not offensive. If having a sexual preference is offensive, then so should be hairstyles.

I don't know if I'd go so far as saying that he has one preference or another. He's pretty effeminate, but at the same time he's much like a child. For example, his relationship with Amy is very one sided. I don't believe the character has a concept of what romance is. I would think his idea of love would be more like the love one has for a friend or family member. I think his reaction really wouldn't be much different if Sonic or Knuckles made him their boyfriend.

Of course, that's just how I feel about the character. I think a better person to ask would be the writer. This is just the vibe I got and how I approached it with the art. Mind you, Shigs does like to deliberately throw in homosexual jokes with Shades, though in Shades' case it's pretty unintentional and he's likely oblivious to it. Like the whole "Do you want to see my Pink Monster," comment.

He totally meant Amy....totally.

OOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHH =o... kk then =D.. it would actaully be funny if he was zapped by cupids love arrow and he fell for Sonic XD and he would kiss Sonic at one point and Amy would be all like "SHADES!!! I thought you really liked me!!!" and then cry off XD =D lol i knew he meant Amy cause he called her a pink monster XD and also in my Fanfic movie Shadow actually acts like a child at most times,and sings and dances and he actually falls in love with Sonic in my movie LOL

I'm not going to put anything past Shigs. Of course, he's gotta get it past Nux first. He acts as ECC's defacto editor. I'm amazed we got the Pink Monster thing past him xD

As soon as Shigs and I (Mainly I) get off our butts and do it. We have a page or two already finished if I remember right, but I think Shigs wants some more done before we start updating.

SHIGS is a genious!!!! I have to agree that I only read the Eggs comics just because of Shades XD =D =D although I love Shadow more but Shades is awesome!!!

by the way random Question if this was a theaters movie who do you think would be the voice of Shades?

I would like to see how David Humphrey or Jason Griffith do it, but if all else fails, I wouldn't mind doing it myself! xD

Seriously, though. I think Shigs initially had a different take on what Shades would sound like from me, but I was all like "Shadow, but girly."

Okay? And Mephilis is a Shadow recolor. Shadow is a Super Sonic recolor with snazzy new shoes and gloves. So what if they look alike or similar? I don't even know anything about RaeLogan or her story. From what I skimmed of her gallery after reading your comment a while back, I don't remember any pictures of Mephilis running around in a pink sweater. Maybe it's in story? I don't know. Even if he is, I don't care (well, aside from minor curiosity of course). It's not like taking Shadow or something that looks like him and using him, let alone the character in any form of clothing is necessarily original or innovative. Neither of the characters were designed from scratch to begin with. If this is based on Mephilis from Sonic 06 in any way, then RaeLogan is in some way using the same character or design, or something very similar. She didn't invent it. She just used it for her own purposes and went about her business much like the guys I'm crediting. Sorry if I'm reading too deep into this, but frankly you're being insulting to my integrity.
