Way Past Cool by arvalis Way Past Cool by arvalis
So this is kinda late, but its my 20th anniversary Sonic picture. For me, it all started with Sonic Adventure on dreamcast in christmas 1999. I had watched SatAM when i was little but i was around 3 or 4 when i watched it. So Sonic Adventure really started my sonic love.

I wanted to incorporate all my favorite parts from the best Sonic games, Sonic Adventure and Sonic Adventure 2. I worked way too long on this, its filled with sonic passion. I had to look up an excessive amount of reference, those jets are even referenced from SA2. I learned a lot in this piece, as almost everything here i had never tried to draw or paint before, with the exception of sonic.

This is my end all, be all sonic illustration, i probably wont paint sonic again for quite a long time. I hope you guys thoroughly enjoy this, as im quite fond of it myself.

Easter Eggs
Two chaos emerald shapes
"Sega" written somewhere
Orca
Biolizard/Finalhazard
Possible Shadow the Hedgehog?
Rings

You just hit me in my nostalgia... I'm looking for a DreamCast/GameCube emulator so I can play Sonic Adventure at least one more time.

Wow! Just Wow! This painting is amazing! And filled with nostalgia. I can really see that you put a lot of time and energy and love into this artwork. I thinks I found all the easter eggs... with the help of some of the commentary though. So wonderful! I'm in awe honestly. Envy licks at me. I would love to make something like this. Sigh. Anyway, such wondrous artwork! I'd love to see more. Keep drawing :D! I'd give you critiques, but honestly, there's nothing I could suggest to make this any better. I'm nowhere near qualified to make any suggestions, anyway. Simply Wonderful!
