The Cryptic Gem by rontufox The Cryptic Gem by rontufox
Tried my hand at an epic pixel piece. Inspired by this lovely work: [link]

So, I really wanted to make something simple but powerful. Because with the huge spectrum of differences among Sonic fans, things get really muddled up and drama-tastic. So here's something I hope every fan can enjoy. I really wanted to give the emerald justice as the mysterious, powerful thing that it is. Hope I succeeded!

My favorite version of Sonic's ever-changing design is from Sonic CD, during the animated scenes, because of the simple and charming design. [link]
Listened to this as I sketched it, the most awesome Sonic 3 remix ever: [link] Oh yeah~ :XD:

i love the way the energy looks, its swirling in on itself and exploding on the edges where it can no longer contain itself, into the smokey effect i just can't stop looking at! i love it!

Holy cow man, your description of how you see the piece is just fantastic.  "Exploding on the edges where it can no longer contain itself," dang!  Thank you so much for your feedback!  I'm so glad you can't stop looking at it, I wanted it to look super cool!

Not sure why this wasn't in my favorites already!  I remember seeing this back when I first watched you and I was kinda awestruck.  Really cool how dynamic this is.  I'm so impressed that it's all solid colors!

It's funny cuz three years later still feel like I outdid myself here and will never be able to top this.  Meaning ever since I posted this I've felt sorta guilty for my watchers... but then I guess it doesn't matter much in the long run?  I never know what to think!

Thanks so much!  Conversely, I'm always impressed by artists who can shade with blended colors! :XD:
