The Fastest DJ: MC Sonic by GagaMan The Fastest DJ: MC Sonic by GagaMan
Just got the e-mail from Sega...I'm one of the 50 winners of the UK side of the Sonic CD fan art contest! Yeaaaah.

So here it is! Based on one of my favourite discoveries as a kid with this game: the hidden artwork in the sound test. It's mainly a re-creation of the MC Sonic art, but also has little elements from some of the other ones (all but the tails "See you next game" one).

Characters drawn in Illustrator, coloured in photoshop. Really wanted to give this a 90's dance scene vibe as that was the feel the game (at least the Euro/Japanese one I grew up with) had in it's soundtrack and in some ways in the art style. Huge influence on me as a kid.

EDIT: fixed a major mistake I hadn't noticed all this time. If Sega posts it on their blog it'll still have the mistake, doh!

Eggman, stop being a DJ. In Sonic CD you we're a terrible DJ. XD

I see how you snuck Demon Sonic and Batman Sonic in this pic. Great job at capturing the look of the original pic made by Sega.
ACE-Spark Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2011
Looks like Sonic's gotta work that sucka to death, come on now.

That Robotnik pose is bitchin'.

LOL at Meatal Sonic! Btw do you have to buy illustrator? I'm looking for some drawing software.

Love Robotnik's look here.

Nice! Don't think I ever came across this image long ago, but hey!

Congrats, man!
DCLeadboot Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Heh, heh... they sure got the beat! :giggle:
Rogerregorroger Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Hobbyist Filmographer
Figures itīs robotnik of all people doing the instrumentals. Yo!
Just proves again that Sonic rather hangs out with everyone who wants to kill him rather then Tails/Amy and the like.

Anyway, great rendition of the classic artwork.

This was always my favorite of the hidden artworks in Sonic CD (evident due to the fact that I drew a pic based on it way back in the past). Glad to hear that you were one of the winners.

Keep up the good work, as always.
GagaMan Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Oh man long time to see man!

Yeah I recall that pic you did now that I looked for it, hehe :D
MontyEggman Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011
Yeah, it has been a while, hasn't it.

Glad that you haven't forgotten me. :)
Luke-the-F0x Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh yeah i remember seeing this as one of the hidden artworks in the game along with cute Chibi Sonic and Sonic with a weird human face. I really like the style, lighting and D.J Eggman.
Great job mate, and congratulations.

Congrats! Great entry!
GagaMan Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Thanks man! :)
ChibiBeckyG Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Professional Digital Artist
Haha! I thought about this one but opted out as I wasn't sure if it would technically count (even if it is in the game, its one of the more obscure aspects of it)

...For some reason I want to stick bling on metal too with maybe a bandanna on his head in that pose, whyyyy

Congrats on your win all the same : )
GagaMan Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Yeah, I took a bit of a risk picking this scene. Wasn't even sure if it was gonna be in the re-release, though turns out it is, and there's even an animated version of Robotmik from this in the soundtrack option!
gsilverfish Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011
Heh, risky indeed! When they say in the rules about possibly receiving entries that closely resemble the original materials, this is the sort of thing they're talking about, I think! xD

I do like your spin on the characters, especially Eggman--that little brow detail adds a ton of expression! The Batman Sonic needs to be bigger or featured differently, I could barely spot him! :)
GagaMan Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2011  Professional Filmographer
Was considering putting batsonic looming over the whole picture, but thought that might be a bit weird looking and didn't really wanna draw him for ages, so I just did a small doodle of him instead. Maybe I could make it lighter or bluer though.
