Sonic fanbase by QueenOfCuttlefishes Sonic fanbase by QueenOfCuttlefishes
EDIT: Scrapped

I love drawing fucked up expressions :heart:
Now, letís rant a little about this hell-hole of a fandom.

All these recolours.
All these Mary-Sues and Garry-Stues.
All these 13-year-old kids who thinks the voices is the most fucking important thing in a game and doesnít give a fuck if youíll fall through a floor because the game is so fucking glitchy ďYOU JUST HAVE TO GET USED TO EEEET!!!Ē
All there drama whores
All these people who wants to fuck a cute, 6-year-old, rabbit

J-just stop it. it enough, mmk?
ē Recolour if you want but donít slap it on the internet and then whine because people tell you it actually is a kind of ART THEFT
ē Make decent character who doesnít hump Sonicís legs 24/7 and has over 5000 different powers.
ē Who plays Sonicís voice? 10 words: I DONíT GIVE A SINGLE FUCK AND NEITHER SHOULD YOU
ē As fast someone recolours your stolen character: donít dare to whine about it. Leave the internet till you have grown more mature.
ē Draw hentai and fap to it a smuch as you want but please at least leave Tails, Cream, Cosmo, and Chamry alone :iconchriscrockerplz:
Theyíre like between 6-8. Even if theyíre some mutant anthros who ages differently than us itís still pretty damn sick.
ē And to all you over obsessed retrofans who canít accept the evolution of a character. Iím sorry you donít have your chubby, black-eyed and adorable Sonic any more (Honestly think CD-Sonic is plain cute), but Sonic grow sup just like any one else and you have to swallow it and move on. Who gives a shit about green eyes and longer legs? Go and play your Sonic 1 and 2 if the new stuff doesnít fit you (have to say Sonic ha had some shitty years now. Hopefully is Sonic Colors and generations good).

Now I just wanna make something clear: Iím fully aware thereís loads of nice, clever, and original Sonic fans out there! The thing is thereís just as many morons in this fanbase, if not more.
Also I on first hand knows that you can change your shitty Mary-sue to a decent fan character. Take a look at my very first Sonic character, Mystic: [link]
She changed a lot and anyone can do it if you only realize the flaws and changes them for the better. You donít have to destroy the recolour you love so much. Just give it some new and better stuff and DRAW IT BY YOURSELF.

So, I think Iím done.
I really hope this picture will entertain you because it was hilarious to draw it. I gotta do more things like this.

Have a good day everyone!

PS. Last message: if any recolour comes and whines Iíll probably ignore you. But I wonít hide your message. Instead Iíll keep it public so people can laugh at your rage.

The Sonic fanbase is the most picky and one of the worst (if not WORST) fanbase ever! if Sega adds in a new mechanic, changes the look of Sonic or even remove a hated character like silver, THEY WILL WHINE, COMPLAIN OR EVEN BOYCOTT SEGA ABOUT IT!!!

also some of them hate Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft or even Valve just because they are superior than Sega... WHAT THE #@*$!

I feel sorry for Sonic. If he gets a game that's considered "bad" or "mediocre" blind fans will defend it all the way to the Moon. But, when he gets a good game, they mindlessly find as many reasons as possible to give hate to it.


Seriously, this is just one of many stupid examples.

Things are simple for some, others are just blatantly convoluted for the other.

Sucks to be Sonic, all the way.

I wouldn't get involved in any of it. But, seeing as fans are capable of influencing the direction of the next game, you just gotta outcrazie the crazies of the fandom.

HelenaKnowlegdeOffic Featured By Owner Oct 7, 2013
Well, this is why people who make explicit arts with Cream, Tails, and Cosmo are hated (6-8). Well, ignore them, but the fact that the characters are children scare me.
awkwarddingo Featured By Owner May 15, 2013
THANK YOU. you could have not made this any clearer (more clear? screw my grammar). Anyways, i was drawing out a Sonic fan character when I saw this. I don't feel it's a terrible thing to do. It's hard being original when confined to a single art style, but I do my best to make him as original as possible. Once again, thank you.
BlueLegend15 Featured By Owner May 4, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
This is why I feel bad for having a couple Sonic FCs.

I'm afraid people will think they're Mary Sue's...

Also... green eyes? Really? People are complaining over that? When I first saw Sonic's green eyes, I didn't even really care.
QueenOfCuttlefishes Featured By Owner May 11, 2013   Digital Artist
Don't worry about it, give it a try! And if you are afraid people will think they're mary sues maybe you should take an extra look at them? Look if there's something you can fix yourself! Or ask for help <:

And yeah, I really don't get it why green eyes are such a big deal!
BlueLegend15 Featured By Owner May 11, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I guess I can modify my characters if they are mary sues. In fact, they are actually pretty plain and boring right now because they don't really have powers or anything, just a backstory and that's it... but I guess all characters are plain at first, right? After a while they'll develop, hopefully into great characters, and not mary sues like half of the sonic fandom.
QueenOfCuttlefishes Featured By Owner May 12, 2013   Digital Artist
Some starts out plain, some starts out as enormous mary sues, it's different from person to person! But remember a character does not need powers to be interesting, if you have problems thinking of power, try to develop them in a different way! Otherwise: time helps! All my characters has developed a lot trough time, since you don't get the necessary ideas right away, you might get them later! So develop your characters in a rate that fits you, no need to rush it <:
KFCMiyu Featured By Owner May 3, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I love Sonic, but I'm afraid to publish any of my fan - characters because of the psychos in this fanbase, insane hypocrites, scene characters, and Mary-Sues.....

I like Sonic but the fanbase is horrible...all the stupid arguments over Sonic eye color and his voice, shipping wars, over obsessed fangirls who call him sexy and the sexual crap is getting on my nerves. And I hate using the term fangirl that term is cursed. ):
SaiyanMasterGoku Featured By Owner Feb 7, 2013
He's raging, Right?
Starlight36 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2013
The thing is though that Sonic's eye color never even changed to begin with. The art style did. His eyes didn't go from black to green, they went from Irises Not Shown to green.
Although, I do find it amusing that fans look past all the other anatomical liberties the art styles (both of them) take and just complain about inconsistant eye color that isn't even inconsistant at all when you think about it.
I don't really mind shipping as a thing, but I think everyone just needs to realize that none of their ships are or will ever be canon and just lighten up about it.
Recoloring is just boring. Any characters I make for any series (my own or a preexisting one) are always designed with a unique silhouette (or an excuse for not having one, like being the twin of another character also made by me, or being another model in some series of machinery or something that would entail a similar appearence to existing designs) and a desire for them to be as visually-distinct from the other characters as those other characters are from each other. Otherwise, the character isn't even really original. Are you showing me your own character, or your dream palette-swap of Sonic for his potential appearence in the next Smash Bros. game?
Also, one thing that bothers me that doesn't seem to bother others much is when anthro characters are given a hairstyle that isn't just an extension of their fur, particularly when their main body is some fantastical color and then they inexplicably have an ordinary hair color that doesn't even match up with their regular color at all or appear anywhere else on their body. I dunno, it's just... I really don't like the aesthetic of that. At all.
And, about modern vs. classic games? Maybe it has to do with why I usually like games, but I prefer the modern ones, mainly because characterization is a thing in those games, as opposed to the old ones which, although admittedly cuter than the newer ones, didn't really give anyone much discernable personality in-game. Although, Sonic Adventure 2 Battle was my first Sonic game, so I'm sure that has nothing to do with me preferring the newer ones, no sirree.
Actually, the only Sonic games I've played that I really liked were the Adventure games and Sonic Battle, prolly because of the stories. They were SO COOL to me when I was younger, and now I just like to sit down and enjoy the nostalgic ham from time to time.
But, some people just take Sonic way too seriously! I know this is an overplayed statement, but really, it's just a video game/comic series, just play/read it and enjoy, and allow others' opinions to differ from your own without rage ensuing. And please, when you make a fan character, make them reasonable, and not a sparkling anthro demigod who vomits rainbows and can sing like Paul McCartney.
QueenOfCuttlefishes Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013   Digital Artist
Hahahahaahahaha, oh my gosh thi is probably the longest comment I've gotten here so far. But it was fun to read.
I do agree on you about how thevart style and anatomy all changed, but people have been complaining abous Sonics "Noodle" arms and legs. What they seem to miss or forget is that he do have knees and elbow, but they are only very visible when moving. I think it's more in Sonic X he has noodle arms and legs, but still bends them like he has knees and elbows.
About having hair on anthro characters, well, I honeslty see nothing wrong with it as longas you make the hairstyle fit and the colours doesn't clash like fuck. I myself have a Sonic character who has purple fur and black hair. ANd quite some in the Archie comic for Sonic have hair.
I'm also a big fan of the Adventure games. I actually finishe dre-playing Sonic Adventure 2 last weekend. Holy shit that game is so fun, but yet so short. I wish it had more stages.
Starlight36 Featured By Owner Jan 10, 2013
Heheh, I like leaving long replies; I hate being misunderstood due to my failure to elaborate, you see. Also, I remember we talked a bit before, too... Maybe you remember?
Yeah, the characters are kinda designed like action figures, which is fine and all, but sometimes I wonder what they'd look like when illustrated with more natural proportions and shapes.
I don't really HATE it, but it's more like... there are certain color combinations I just don't like much, although this does depend on how the two colors are placed together. It's just that a fantastical main body color and then a normal hair color makes the hair look really tacked on and not needed as a design facet, since the main body color already makes them look distinct enough... usually. And yeah, they do have hairstyles in the comics sometimes, but with, say, Sally? She has brown fur and then darker brown hair. The colors go together and make sense together, but purple and black together in the same way just look... weird. I dunno, it's just my opinion; pay it no more heed than you wish.
I was able to get through Adventure 2 in two days... Almost. Biolizard's final attack (fighting him/her/it/whatever for the first time as Shadow) is just unfair; it's unblockable, your agility is greatly reduced when trying to avoid it and if you get hit once you've got no way to get your rings back. It's been very frustrating to me. Although... I did end up making a redesign of the Biolizard to be closer in scale to the others, just for fun, if you'd like to see.
QueenOfCuttlefishes Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013   Digital Artist
Don't worry. I'm cool with long comments! And yes, i remember we've talked before! <:

And I understand what you mean with the hair and stuff. Maybe my sonic character wouldn't look so bad without her black hair because she already has some features that separates her from the rest. But she has had that black hair for so long it's simply a part of her now. I don't think purple and black is a strange combo since black goes together with a lot of colours. And I agree on that with Sally too, even if her hair seems to have the ability to switch colours since it's either brown or red, but it still goes together with her fur colour because she's brown/orange and both brown, orange, and red are warm colours. Purple is somewhere between because it's between red and blue, but i think it's more towards the cold colours.

And my god, Biolizard is such a freaking pain. I must say I could re-grab most of my rings. But I always died at the part when you have to jump at those little pink-ish balls to reach Bilozirad's weak spot, even if I hadn't grabbed every ring at the battle, I simply couldn't reach them in time. It was really frustrating. But i guess they made up for it in the very final battle when you pretty much just go right ahead for it and barely nothing stops you from beating it.
Starlight36 Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2013

Well, I guess I just saw it as her already having white as her secondary color and then SUDDENLY BLACK HAIR WUT!? The hair kinda stands out a lot. I don't think it's even the color, necessarily... I dunno, maybe having some of it curling around in front of her cheeks or falling down over her shoulders would help?

Oh, that is annoying... What I mean is, for the very final hit, when whisks you up into the air and those little pink balls are all around you, if you get hit it sends you back to the start point and its practically impossible to reclaim any of your rings, which means you only have room for one error and its infuriating. And then of course my brother just breezes through it and...
Oh, um, if you wanna see it, the redesign I did is here: [link]
The quotes are samples from the context for which the design was created. He's labelled as "Shadow", because the hedgehog who goes by that name shares it with his big brother... Who is a giant... salamander-bronchiosaurus thing... Yeah.
QueenOfCuttlefishes Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2013   Digital Artist
Humm, that's true, maybe her hair is simply too flat for her?

And that part of the battle is indeed just impossible. If you get hit away by one of the pink balls you might not be able to climb up again and you have to run around and wait it out and then have ANOTHER round of getting chases and having electric balls shot at you.

And aww, that's a pretty cute design I must say!
Starlight36 Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013
It just looks a bit like a wig, which is what I think needs fixing. I don't really know how to say it (or if it even needs said) other than that.

Yeah. Sometimes I wonder if developers make things like that just to troll us players. Besides, we already have I Wanna Be The Guy if we really need to fulfill our "trolled by video game" quota up quickly, so...

His redesign is meant to be cute. Sonic Adventure 2 doesn't really give him much in terms of personality, so I had a fairly free range to work with on that level. He's very submissive and obediant, just like his father taught him to be, and wants to fulfill his father's wishes, believing that Gerald knows what's best and that he shouldn't be questioning, since he's just a fake creature, and a child at that. In a weird twist, he ended up growing up in his little brother's shadow (heh), because his brother was a more perfect model.
Um, actually, I had the idea that the Biolizard you kill in game was an "alpha" build of the ultimate life form, which, due to generally sucking at the whole living thing and being impractically large, had its brain removed and replaced with machinery. The brain was moved to a laboratory where a new body was developed around it. This body is the one I drew, which is the "beta" build of the ultimate life. The Alpha build is being used as a puppet body, controlled by the Beta, because Biolizard's new body is much smaller and not fit for combat. At all. Obviously, Shadow is the final build of the ultimate life, with power, constitution and agility surpassing his older sibling.
...Did I just outline a fanficky thing to you? I think I just did. Oh well, I'm just sorta mentally tryin' to see what Sonic would be like with improved character and story depth, and I think it could be cool if done right.
QueenOfCuttlefishes Featured By Owner Jan 16, 2013   Digital Artist
I think it was more a bad boss battle design than trying to troll the players. I guess they just wanted it to be hard since it's pretty much the final boss.

And I do like that idea! And it sounds believable that Biolizard's brain was replaced by machinery and such. And also: Biolizard IS the prototype of the ultimate life form, he was a prototype for Shadow. Which bring s me to something important: I think you really should change name on your character tho. Since there already is a WIDELY known Sonic character named Shadow who is the real ultimate life form. Imagine making a fan character named Sonic, that wouldn't work so well would it? Maybe if the character is named "Sonic Jr" but yeah.

My thoughts
1.I was never into the shipping wars but for the people that draw up hentai of Tails,Cream ect.
Please find some other form of getting your kicks, you're making the rest of us Sonic fans look bad.
2.When it comes to voice acting, I just set it to Japanese, problem solved.
3.I cant say I know anything about recolours, so no comment.
4.Long lost brothers and sisters? from Sonic Underground? simple I consider it non cannon
5.Sonic's eye colour, really? thats a problem? pfft whatever
6. Dont know who Mary Sue or Garry Stues, sooo no comment
Love the picture, Sonic reaction is perfect.
Happy new years!
