Sonic Calibur?

Tired of seeing those ugly attempts of trying to make accurate recreations of our anthropomorphic blue friend Sonic? Man i've seen some ugly ones. People should know you aren't going to be able to make an accurate anthropomorphic character( maybe a few exceptions, just ask party wolf about his goofy CAS). I figured as a Sonic fan myself I wanted to take a crack at making Sonic, but by taking a different approach at making him. If you saw pockyyoshi's pokemon CAS thread http://8wayrun.com/threads/contest-challenge-pokemon-gijinkas.16176/. Then you know what to expect. More of human interpretation of Sonic
Right now you're probably thinking "GET ON WITH IT ALREADY AND POST YOUR CAS ALREADY." So here you go, my interpertation of Sonic as a human

Design notes:
Since Sonic's design is very plain and there's nothing but blue dominating his overall color scheme, I tried to mix in small upgrades and items from other Sonic games.
-Soap shoes from Sonic adventure 2
-Flame ring from Sonic adventure 2(left hand)
- Metal gaunlet from Sonic and the Black Knight(right hand)
- his goggles from Sonic Riders.
- YES I GAVE HIM GREEN EYES DEAL WITH IT
"But why did you create a thread just for this?"
Well you see, I liked how my sonic game, despite being very plain, but then I realized, why stop at Sonic? Theres a boatload of sonic characters i could keep going with!
So i did lol. Heres the rest i've made so far

Shadow
101DBBCA-FB4D-4D0E-AEF8-865D45C63306-33696-00004140B713594F_zps9ca75c1f.jpg

notes:
I had everything I needed to create a good Shadow. Fur scarf, Red highlights in mitsu's hair, adding two upside down hearts to the shoes to create the white part of them all help make this CaS recognizable as Shadow. This DLC vest + red and white stickers help add the coolness factor. I'm quite pleased with how Shadow turned out :)

Knuckles

Notes:
Since Knuckles is known for being a treasure hunter in the sonic games(and also doing a bad job guarding the master emerald XD loljk) I tried to go for a more " adventurer, explorer" look for Knuckles. Also gave him his hat from the Sonic OVA. His trademark spiked hands are the boxing gloves + horns. Though the horns will glitch up on some animations :/

Silver

Notes:
out of all my sonic characters, this one was the one that required me to do the most thinking. Used stickers and patterns on the front of his shirt to match the color of his telekinetic aura in Sonic 06. The pattycakes boots worked perfectly to match Silver's. pure rings added for his golden armlets. Took me awhile to figure out a good style for him, but eventually i settled for ZWEI, wish there was a better character BUT ITS NO USE!

Blaze

Notes:
this one came out really good. Almost everything I needed was already an equipment piece. Seong mina's coat + Jun's cape and pants work perfectly. Natsu's 2p hair + feathers give an almost exactly perfect hair for Blaze. Ivy's 2p gloves and shoes are almost exactly alike Blaze's. i really like how this one came out

Thats all I got for now, but I encourage you all, if you have any human interpretations of Sonic characters, share them here in this here thread as well, I'll be trying to create moar soon

So i leave you with one last thing..
I caught you SnooPINGAS-usual I see!!

Notes:
I normally dont add animal parts to these but for tails i wanted to make an exception, so i gave him his two tails because thats what hes known for.
figured i'd also give him his Rhythm badge from Sonic adventure.

Notes
pretty simple one to make, Phyrra clothing works fine, Leixia's 2p hair and feathers work perfectly. Also gave her the warrior feather upgrade from sonic adventure.

Heres one i decided to do on my own, my favorite of the Chaotix members(they're Detectives you want on your side!)

Notes
I gave him more a ninja-like look without trying to make him look like the generic ninja, i think it worked. Kilik hair also works perfectly for his hairstyle

Nice human-form Sonic characters!
I like to put Sonic characters in SC5 too, but I'm more used to making direct recreations of anthropomorphic characters.

How did I do at making anthropomorphic characters?
http://8wayrun.com/threads/retrotators-sc5-re-creation-gallery.16904/

If they're good enough, I might add some of my new Sonic creations to this thread, or I can help you with making anthropomorphic characters if you want.

Awesome thread idea, but I don't agree that people should just give up at making most anthropomorphic characters. Features like the stickers, 3 special equipment pieces, and the kittymeow head, provide a lot of possibilities for making animal parts and fur patterns. It's very possible to make good anthropomorphic creations, but the problem is that they can be very difficult to make. It takes a lot of precision work to move stickers and special equipment to the right places, but it can be done.

I've been attempting to re-create characters like Sonic in fighting games ever since the year before SC5 came out, and I think SC5 is the best 3D fighting game for recreating characters like Sonic.

I believe you missed his point

Is not about "people do ugly Sonic", it's about "with all the skill of the world even pushing SCV cas the best sonic you can make is still fucking ugly"

Don't watch it with mommy eye and you can see he's right

Okay, I understand now.

Maybe everyone has their own preferences as far as choosing between making re-creations look "more accurate" or "better looking"
I guess I favor accuracy when it comes to that balance, while some may prefer that the creations look less weird.

I'm looking forward to seeing more Sonic creations either way! :)

Gatsu, i know that your opinion of a good CAS is a soulcaliburish one, and i respect that, but i have known how to do this for a long time now, and there are many others here that think otherwise, and value what i tried to do "beyond" the editor...
So let us just say i am happy with that, even if i can only agree with your statement (slight understatement aside), art and design being a matter of taste :)

They're nice. I'll put this in Contest, Tutorials, and more thread. Also, I might make a Chaos Gijinka sometime if I feel up for it. Just know I'm somewhat busy with things.

Also....

@VILARCANE. As long as you don't resort to hacked stuff, everything is fair game. Just know, CAS is a preference thing that is always a debate.

Awesome Metal Sonic and Sonia!
I tried making Metal Sonic before, using the skeleton dlc.
I like the tough look that you gave Sonia. Do you plan to make characters from SATAM and Sonic X too?

Also, Is it okay for us to post "any" of our Sonic creations here?
I'm a big fan of Sonic, but I feel like making more than human forms.
