Thanks, Skye! Now, let's get the real deal, shall we? The one character that design never got to represent...
Blaze the Cat, blasting through in a fake comic page... with no background. I just found I scanned a pair of cool Blaze sketches, so I coloured them and made this. The one narrating in the caption boxes would probably be Gardon the Koala, Blaze's guard from Sonic Rush Adventure.
Sonic could have been a rabbit, Cream could have been a squirrel or a racoon, and Blaze could have been... errrr... whatever this is? So, inspired by (not to say BLUNTLY RIPPING OFF) Blaze's prototype design, here comes who I called Mist the Chimera:
Yeah, it's obvious why to consider this a chimera: first of all, because we have no idea what kind of animal it was supposed to be. Maybe she could have been a lion, but female lions do not have that long mane... but the mythological Chimera does, as well as a snake for a tail, hence that creepy-looking tail with a face that resembles a dark wisp or that weird giant yellow ball Zazz carries around. To make her look weirder, her eyes are based of the ones that prototype version of Silver had. And she has no mouth, like Mephiles. Considering how many elements this design borrows from other characters that were or never were, this is a chimera in and out of character! As for the name, Mist, well... she creates mist when she shows up (duh!) and is able to turn into a cloud. She might also have ice powers (the opposite to Blaze). I wanted to keep the dirty and imperfect texture of scanned pencil strokes to make it feel like the droplets of water and other particles are forming her body.
Okay, I feel like I shouldn't corrupt that last wish, since it's something very personal. Honestly, I feel like I have also failed some people because of this, because of not talking to them enough and waiting for them to take the iniciative. I'm trying to change that behavior... I also hope things got better and those people reconsidered what they did and gave you the attention and love you deserve.
Papika, from Flip-Flappers Well, I... don't remember any particular quote she said in the anime. Not that she doesn't say anything memorable, it's just that I saw this show a loooong way back. I should rewatch it tho, it was a blast, crazy fun. Loved it.
Truth is, we had PLENTY OF TIME to win this. But we didn't... We let time flow, with no intention of coming back here. Users dared to think that no administrator or moderator would come here to break the chain. Now look. Look at this disaster. This... dramatic turn of events. After more than a year, an admin, none other than Shadow himself ,showed up and broke the chain. This rusted, forgotten chain that I refuse to let disintegrate. With that said, it's time to start a new journey, that may end on another defeat, or maybe, just maybe, can come to a close being an undeniable success: 1
Okay, Knuckles deserves all the love, but I hope that, if the character is introduced in the sequel, he comes with all the echidna lore and Chaos Emeralds stuff. Still... shouldn't Tails be the priority? And how do they plan to introduce Jaleel White? As a cameo?
