:collab: Don't panic by rontufox :collab: Don't panic by rontufox
Sketch by =RiotaiPrower :iconriotaiprower:

I was so psyched to get a collab with Hydrocity Zone as the backdrop! The scariness of the level made me hate it as a kid, but playing it later I realized it's incredibly beautiful (with awesome music too~). One of my favorites now.

I thought this was gonna be one of the more easier collabs, but the geometric shapes ended up stumping me for a long time in this lineless style. A really long time lol. I was so overwhelmed with the challenge that it'd never get finished. But once I got it that aspect figured out, I went all out with all the other elements. Really hope you guys find the water rushing through believable, and I hope you enjoy the tunnel's depth! (and try to ignore the wonky perspective... :XD:)

Hope you like it, =RiotaiPrower! I know it was a super long wait, and I'm sorry.

Hydrocity Zone...ah, this takes me back to one of my favorite Sonic games. :heart: I never did like the sudden rush of water forcing you along the channel and making you dodge spikes, though. :shakefist:

This scene would've made for some great "blooper reel" material, though.  Imagine Sonic holding onto the pole and passing gas, just to watch the bubbles get quickly swept down the channel. :lol:

You yourself illustrated some small bubbles in the water channel, which probably came from the game itself.  What's wrong with Sonic adding a few of his own? :XD:

Hm, I'm not sure... I didn't draw this, I only colored, so I'm not sure what style the person who drew it was trying to emulate =)

Great job! You've captured the essence of hydrocity zone very nicely, but did you ever feel like swimming when doing this? or have that stage theme stuck in your head?

This is probably my favorite water zone in any Sonic game. Said 'probably' because I love Aquarium Park too, heh.

Anyway, awesome work!
