Sonic Pulse 001 Cover Art by Jetstreamx Sonic Pulse 001 Cover Art by Jetstreamx
Okay. There is a bit of a story behind this one.

A few weeks :iconnuckles87: asked me to do a cover for Pulse using Spaz's style because my style's not "Sonic-y" enough for him. Well, rather than just Spaz's style, I did some crazy variation of a mix of his stuff.

First off, I decided to base this cover off of one of his older ones, basically as an homage to it. The cover in question is Sonic the Hedgehog 62.

As for the exact style, being as Spaz never sticks to just one, this is a bit of an amalgam of a couple. Basically the style he used with Darkest Storm mixed in with the Sonic X-like style he used with Sonic Universe 1.

So yes. If you're wondering why this cover looks so familiar in SOOOOOOOOOOOOO many ways, that is why. And I am well aware of the fact that Sonic looks so friggen creepy.

Sonic and Tails r belong to SEGA

As far as I can see, this is one heck of an awesome deviation!
Sonic and Tails both deliver dynamic poses as they head to the unseen horizon. They look true to their original designs while keeping the old Sonic flair. The color job is superb and brings out the characters in a beautifully thought out background. The New Mobotropilis-esque building background as a nice Archie Sonic touch and the street below Sonic is passable.
On note, this deviation seems to be inspired by the cover of Sonic the Hedgehog #66 with the same duo and poses. A fine job indeed from JetstreamX!
What do you think?

Sonic looks sugar-high o_o
Anyways, I love the coloring here; everything's so bright. I also really think the textures on the backgrounds are great, especially the road. With all the details, I almost what to see even more detail on the characters too

Oy! I never said yer style wasn't "Sonic-y" enough. I said I wanted to see how you measured up to Spaz at this point. Never once have I ever complained about yer style; it's fine.

I was going to critique it, but considering it's style emulation, using someone who we agree isn't actually very consistant at all with his Sonic style... I won't. Emulation is pretty difficult to get down, especially old Pat's. Sometimes I either get the impression that he finds it difficult adjusting to the style, or that he doesn't like what he achieves each time, hence it changing so often XD I dooo like this pic though, Sonic doesn't look too creepy (I think it's the smile~) but overall it's awesome work man!

I hate it more each time I look at it. By this time tomorrow I'll despise it. I totally can't wait. But yeah, he used to stay consistent, back in the day. Part of me suspects that Archie nags him iinto several directions for the sake of staying in line with the official look

Hmmm, yeah, that may actually be an added pressure. Which is why I sometimes can't envision doing illustration as a job, myself. being pressured to adjust or change my style for the sake of pleasing people would annoy the living hell outta me.

To be honest I think your style looks Sonic-y anyway o__O
