Damn, I really think the fleetway continuation guys are fucking lame. Like I get these are ultimately done for free but they're still lame. No cool things like sonictober and that pic for halloween ASO did. Like they're way more active at least. no real offense but british sonic fans (at least at stco) are just boring.

Biolizard Vore The air in the massive chamber room felt pungent and chilly at the same time, a sacred yet profane imitation of an ancient shrine at the back corner while rivers of glowing cream colored coolant flowed in all directions around stone walking paths. This place was the beating heart of the entire space colony, and standing in the center of it were the Ultimate Life Forms gazing upon one another for the first time.
Shadow gazed up at the massive monstrosity of a bio-synthetic reptile. The surface of its skin was harsh and scabbed, grotesque tubing protruded from its body along its back and poking out from its neck, and a pair of fitting tipped metal prongs poked from the front of its head to serve as eyes. The sight of it filled his heart with a deep sympathy, but the creature appraised the black hedgehog before it with an expressionless face that betrayed no hint of what it was thinking. If it could think at all.
"So you're the true ultimate life form..." Shadow asked rhetorically aloud, his voice filled with pity. In response the lizard reared up and roared out at the hedgehog, a booming screech echoing through the chamber and rippling the water. Its mouth agape let Shadow see into the lizards glowing internals, a sickly flesh color leading to a pale white the further it went along to the back of its throat. The sound sent chills through Shadow, but the sight instilled an unspoken yearning he couldn't put into words. The same yearning that brought him down to the core of the ARK after discovering the secret project files on The Doctors computer that revealed he, Shadow, was not the first that had been created by the project to create the Ultimate Life Form.
Once the Biolizard's roar rumbled to an end it lowered its head to be closer to eye level with the hedgehog. Its sibling, in many ways. Shadow did not know how this creature felt, how it saw him or comprehended its own fate. But he knew what desire burned in his own heart, and he could only hope that this thing felt an equal but opposite desire itself. They were two missing pieces, and together they could finally be whole. Slowly, Shadow reached out a hand to touch the Biolizard's snout, and the synthetic life form rumbled but remained still allowing the contact to be made.
With the tacit acceptance provided, Shadow stepped forward and pressed his entire body against the lizards face, feeling the dull rounded lips opened against his torso while he embraced the snout as best he could. "I wondered why I was created. I couldn't begin to guess what my purpose for existing was. But now I know, there is no doubt in my mind. Do you feel the same way?" He asked, and could only hope the rumble vibrating through the lizard he received in response was a confirmation. Shadow couldn't know this creatures mind or heart, but he had to trust the connection they had in spirit compelled it just as much as it compelled him.
A pang stabbed at Shadow's heart when he felt the Biolizard pull itself away, reaching out in longing for the creature as it reared its head high again. But the concern passed instantly when he looked up to see the lizard opening its mouth and loom high above him, a drip of drool raining down to land on Shadow's smiling face. "Yes. This is my purpose. Our purpose. Take me." He sighed out aloud, lifting up his arms invitingly. And without a moments hesitation, the lizard lunged down and engulfed him. All at once the misty coolant laced air of the outside world was replaced by the organic heat of the Biolizards mouth claiming his entire body, so sudden was the change that he let out a gasp and wiggled against the flesh around him on instinct.
The Biolizard closed its lips around Shadows ankles and then lifted its head up once again, only the hedgehogs shoes poking out from its mouth while the rest of the critter struggled in its maw. After a moment Shadow relaxed, groaning out at the wet warmth compressing around his body and feeling the gentle grinding of the squishing flesh all around him, harmlessly chewing him in a way that felt soothing. He hoped if the lizard was capable of tasting anything, that his flavor was being enjoyed. Eager to fulfill his purpose for existing Shadow tried shifting himself further into the mouth, only to feel the lips holding in a tight seal around his ankles to keep him from going further. After a few seconds of not understanding, a realization occurred to the hedgehog, and with a muffled chuckle he kicked the shoes off of his feet leaving them to land with a splash into the coolant river below and get swept away.
Satisfied, the Biolizard tilted its head back and let Shadow slide towards the entrance to its gullet. Shadow felt the wetness around him grow warmer as he moved towards the glowing pale flesh of the lizards throat, and felt it flow around his body while he was sent away like he was going down a waterslide. The hedgehog made a slight bulge down the lizards long neck as he slid down, and the beast lowered its head and let out a high pitched hiss of satisfaction that lasted until the bulge disappeared from view as it reached the end of its journey. Shadow spilled into the waiting stomach of the Biolizard with a comfortable groan, panting on the pungent air inside and pushing onto his hands and knees while trembling.
The interior of the stomach was aglow with a sickly bioluminescence. The organic space was long enough for him to lay out with his hands above his head before he reached the other end, and wide enough to sit up on his knees before his head bumped against the ceiling. A sloshing puddle of fluids splashed up to his wrists and the walls around him shifted and undulated in a constant organic movement in rhythm with the muffled thudding of a heartbeat. It was oppressively hot, and yet at the same time it felt off with the emotional chill of a sterile lab room.
Shadow frowned sadly and laid face down, pressing his arms and legs out and began rubbing his body against the interior of the stomach. He felt the organ wave around him from the stimulation, and then clench down to compress against his body from all sides until he was forced to curl up into a tight spindash of a hedgehog ball. The puddle of sticky belly fluids splashed against him now filling the smaller enclosed space halfway filled, and the digestive muscle held firmly against his body without allowing an inch of open space. But Shadow was undeterred and continued moving as best he could, gently scritching his quills against his surroundings and pressing with his limbs to rub his shoulders and knees at the stomach walls, even nodding his head to nuzzle at it. There was a work quaking vibration all around him from the stomachs reaction, and the booming thunder of the Biolizard belching out a deep crass gassious discharge deafened out all other sounds.
Then the stomach relented, expanding back to the open shape it had been originally letting him tumble out of his hedgehog ball and sit up. He shook his head sending driplets of gastric fluid to splatter against the walls around him, clearing his head before assessing his surroundings again. The difference filled him with a warmth and brought a smile to his face. The pale sickly color was replaced by a deep warm pink, the walls were soft and ridged with a healthy humidity sweltering around him. Internal fumes flowed in a visible steam as the Biolizard breathed, and a quivering from the stomach walls pressed gently against Shadow in an appreciative squishing embrace. Shadow chuckled and rubbed at the walls, punctuating it with a sigh of contentment and resting back into the fleshy hammock of a stomach in complete satisfaction.
This was where he belonged. It was his purpose to be here, he felt whole and complete now. Separately they were lacking, it was only together that they fulfilled the reason for their creation. The Biolizard surged with a physical resplendence that had long been denied, and Shadow was at peace with the total assurance of what his place in the world was. In the outside world the Biolizard trudged through the coolant of the space colony core to a secluded room it used as a den, never to be seen by any mortal eyes ever again. Its movements were graceful and confident, and the motion reverberated down to its belly causing Shadow to purr amidst the gurgling of the stomach around him.
With the two creations of the project gone AWOL, the scientific research on the space colony was shut down and soon enough all human life aboard relocated back down to earth to find new journeys in life. The ARK was left desolate and abandoned but still buzzing with the perpetual energy that powered it while it drifted quietly in orbit around the planet. The only beings left behind to populate it resting at the very heart of the colony, The Ultimate Life Forms sleeping in unified bliss around and within one another, living eternally through the burble of happy belly and the regular rumble of a belch.

Jeez tho, these british are brutal. I'm not saying Archie is perfect, it had it fair share of flaws. But I'm LAUGHING at how perfect they make STC out to be. They still do it to this day lmao. Same guy unironically said STC-O was good. Good joke mate. Ton of them have some grudge over archie lol
>>454803 > seething over Archie I don't think that ever happened.
SatAM had 13 episodes each year, for only two years, not much to go by for a fan. Archie was the next best thing you could get under your teeth while waiting for new episodes to come out, and even more so after there was no more.
I doubt there was much seething about Archie existing from SatAM fans. Except maybe when St John was involved, but that's understandable.
>>454819 And that's it for the first chapter of this. And here's a summary of the story. >Synopsis: Sonic is having a bad day and just wants to chill. Eggman decides to wreak havoc like usual. Sonic decides to go super to finish him quickly but the emeralds are no where to be found. He gets more irritated and goes Fleetaway.
Egg Dimension Comic Page 29 https://www.deviantart.com/lonelybrowncow I feel like Boom Eggman would force Sonic to be his best buddy for the rest of his life. Which means watching movies with him and having to laugh at all of his jokes.
Genuine question. Been starting to save fanart I like since a lot of artists I follow have nuked their accounts lately. What advice would you have for archiving art from places like tumblr, twitter, or pixiv? Any way of grabbing shit that's been deleted already?
Amy's Family Chapter 2 Page 13 https://www.deviantart.com/princessgalaxia9 Personally, I don't find offense to it being tagged Sonamy because if it was a comic about Sonic getting physically abused by Sally and it was tagged Sonally, I might get a perverse chuckle out of it. I mean, isn't abusive relationships a cornerstone for Sonadow?
>>454814 Oh boy, I cant wait for some Sonurge! >>454816 Tails and Cream aren't friends, in fact we've never seen them together because they're the same person >>454820 Pretty good so far >>454823 Cursed >>454825 Man, this comic is so messed up >that second panel sigh hawt >I feel like Boom Eggman would force Sonic to be his best buddy for the rest of his life. Yeah, that episode where he moved in with Sonic is pretty much what he'd do >>454828 Highly recommend gallery-dl. It'll download images and video from pretty much any of the main sites. I wrote a tutorial on it here: https://the-ride.neocities.org/updates/2023-01-21-gallery-dl/ >>454833 That gay Shadow tshirt is so cute on robo-sonic. I wish I had a robo-Sonic ;_; >>454837 Yeah, he totally does. He was happy to turn of my ability to bump the Birdstone threads but put it back on once we reached the image limit. Missed the thread today but I've got some comics to fill the thread up with
>>454833 I don't know the actual rules for taggin ship, but I think it's fair to tag with a ship a story that explore that relationship.
Someone was mentioning Rosedualist and how she was handling the Sonic/Shade situation in her story better, but she tag the drawings where Shade is holding Sonic against his will and trying to groom him as "sonade" too. The situation is about the same.
Looks like we might be getting a Manic fan zine! If you're interested in reading one, I'd appreciate you filling out this form. It should only take about 20 seconds https://ask-a-light-of-hope.tumblr.com/post/732816095593086976
>>454839 >Missed the thread today but I've got some comics to fill the thread up with Based. It's hard to predict which threads fill up fast and some are incredibly slow. >>454842 I just think some people are very sensitive when it comes their ship and how it's handled. >>454843 >middle of a fight >eggman makes a bad egg pun >sonic doesn't laugh >eggman's robots stop fighting and he looks at sonic >sonic: ha... ha? >eggman smile and the fight resumes >>454844 Mite b cool >>454849 I was mostly referring to porn of Sonic and Violet.
Sonic the Continuation Issue 21 Page 14 https://www.deviantart.com/okida Sally and her super cheek tufts are getting a chance to shine, Amy and Tekno go on another date, and Grimer's going back home again.
>>454857 Shame but it is interesting to see how both continuations handled the plot. >>454858 It's fine. I'm kind of done with the language barrier and would like it if they could talk to each other. >>454859 Didn't even realize that. Was too busy looking at her cheek tufts and chest. >>454860 STC is so far ahead right now on Patreon. In a couple weeks we'll get the last page of this issue. Turtle Power is still chugging along.
>>454859 >Sallys eyes are too small Sally's red eyebrows need to touch at least a little her eyes or eyelids, even when she only frown a little, so whenever her expression hasn't her eyes wide open. (also, more often than not, her eyelids should cover part of her eyes, resulting in her frequently having bedroom eyes)
Those are design cue that can often be forgotten, but is part of the charm and expressivity of the character.
With that said, Okida's take has its own charm that I won't deny.

I do wonder what should happen after the Archie Ride is over. I'd be fine with the new board and posting only on this site but would I do daily storytimes like before or just post stuff whenever I find them? Also lets others post stuff if they want. And I still think the board and its threads will move pretty slow, especially compared to 4chan. Despite the memes, there's still a finite number of comics to post and even with new comics coming out, we'd cover all of them and there are still some that I wouldn't bother with due to interest or some other reason. Still there's a good amount to do, both saved away somewhere or needing to be translated. I'm slowly getting back into building up more content to post but won't do so until later.
>>454877 I think another sthg equivalent should be made in the new board. Yes it would be slower but the appeal could be that its actually way more moderated since you're gonna be in charge of it. I think that alone would get some people to visit it, but you should try to advertise it to many people. And if the board allows nsfw, porn threads would also be an appeal lol
>>454855 Speaking of S.T.C., seeing he seems to be working on a redemption arc for Super, I wonder if the DLC of Frontiers will be used as an inspiration to visually mark when Super has completely come over.
Then again, seeing he has taken upon himself to do game adaptation, it might take a while before we get there.
>>454880 Yeah, I guess that true. But some other ideas for the Sonic board conductor should take in consideration. So a consistent sthg thread in it where you can post anything sonic, and to make things not too scattered, conductor should use those same threads to also story time whatever they find.
and yes, it's an entire board to post about anything sonic, but there should be a focused point for most people to visit on said board. But of course, if someone wanted to make an entire thread to post just Amy, they can do that. I really hope you take what I say to heart conductor. I believe that will help a lot in the long run.
>>454882 My main issue is that moving the unofficial story time threads on this board might be too much for 4chanplus /co/, as we can already currently see, but having a full board for Sonic might also be too big and result in being quite empty, or worse, turn into circle jerking.
The arrangement there was before the janitor and mod went full moronic, with the 4chan plus thread serving as a backdoor wasn't perfect, but it seemed the most fitting to what the threads needed to be.
Don't know if the mod and Janny would allow things to be back to how they were before the archie ride, once the Archie Ride is over...
>>454883 >Don't know if the mod and Janny would allow things to be back to how they were before the archie ride, once the Archie Ride is over... It's unfortunely not gonna happen. They've made their stance loud and clear and theres nothing we can do about it there.
Like I get some of your concerns but what I desribed is probably what it has to be. Cuz lets say conductor in new board and made a thread for comics, the turnout, to be perfectly honest, would be fucking abysmal with like 2-3 people at most paying attention to it. But if a consistent sthg thread was made, conductor can and should post it there to get people to actually read shit while we also talk about other sonic shit. And yes I have thought about it, most of the board would just be fllled up with our old sthg threads, also why we were offered one so we dont keep filling here on /co/) but I still think a focused point like that would get people to actually go there. And we'll deal with problems as we ecounter them. That just how it gotta be man.
>>454884 Yes. The admin here is more than fine giving us a board since it was their suggestion. We bring in enough people to warrant a board it seems so if it's fine with them then why not? I've jumped through enough hoops and dealt with the worst kind of moderation and we've seen how the entire group of mods are like. It's not going to get any better. It's going to be tricky getting people to come over buuuuuut there are ways. One way is posting links and risking a ban. There's even advertising. We can probably get the new board advertised on other boards here. There's also /v/ and even /vg/ threads. Seems Sonic threads are more tolerated there. But it depends on the kinds of people we get and if it's worth dealing with potential troublemakers. I'm very lax when it comes to moderation so long as it's not destroying a thread and being off topic.
https://the-ride.neocities.org/threads/140154531#140156130 wait, Altair mentioned to tails that Knuckles and Sally know each others? Am I missunderstanding that or did I miss something in the Tails mini-series.
>>454935 Tails said that Althair didn't mention that. It's just Tails awkwardly bringing up his mini because he really wants to talk about it. >>454936 Doesn't make sense since it's so easy to fill up the thread with so much time left. And the board is moving fast. It's beyond futile.
>>454949 >reboot I'm talking mostly about changes that happened still in the preboot. Originally there's this curve on her face and then it becomes more angular later on. I thought it was just a minor detail at first but it changes her entire face shape and I can't stop noticing it now.
>>454931 I'm so glad this one is back, I absolutely love the moody atmosphere >>454936 And to think I was worried I'd over stuffed the thread with that Unleashed comic and the Frenzy art! >>454938 It's fascinating to think our very existence has forced the janny to spend half his day lurking threads about a subject he hates. If it wasn't self-inflicted, I'd actually feel bad for him
https://the-ride.neocities.org/threads/140174555#140177159 Slightly frustrating that the Neutraliser is mentioned so many time and is such an important plot-device, yet, it's almost never actually drawn in the comic. Geoffrey used the Neutraliser, yet, I have no idea who was holding it in the first place, or where ever it was.
>>454971 They've both done that. Sonic refers to Sally as his significant other in an early issue. Thing is not everyone thought of them as a couple. Especially Penders and Bollers didn't seem to care for the ship either. Sonic and Sally are just really close to being a couple but never getting to it.
So I was looking into our favorite Sonamy shipper RaianOnzika, and it turns out he's doing another lewd comic. This one's about Tails rebuilding and plapping robo-Fiona. I'm not storytiming it since I only post smut where Tails is unambigiously older, but others are welcome to: https://inkbunny.net/submissionsviewall.php?rid=6885ebb83e&mode=pool&pool_id=70858 >>454972 Yeah, it's actually pretty frustrating now that I think of it >>454973 Honestly I've seen them as a couple since the start, although they don't immediately put a label on it. Of course, I just ignore Geoffrey every time he's written by Penders. Then again, I also think Sonic and Knuckles are constantly fighting because they're kinda into each other and would plap if their girlfriends were fine with it
>>454978 He did one of the most unhinged Sonamy comics we've ever storytimed. A drawanon produced some absolute kino about it here: >>444837 https://the-ride.neocities.org/comics/2022-05-25-the-dark-doppels/
>>454975 >This one's about Tails rebuilding and plapping robo-Fiona Pretty good comic. I find it interesting, in SatAM and early Archie robots in general are pretty disposable, even the ones that appear to be more sentient than others, but as time passes they begin to be more humanized, specially once things like Nicole gaining a body and the whole Shard stuff happen, and even characters like Belle in IDW and Sage in the games becoming a thing. So a comic about Auto-Fiona appearing now seems fitting, funny that it's a porn one though.
>>454980 Sonic X made Sonamy toxic and yet acceptable to some people. Thank goodness that version of Amy is gone and while she's still Sonic-crazy she reigns it in and doesn't do all sorts ridiculous stuff as one anon point out in Sonic Battle. I will say I prefer Sonic being casual and flirty rather than being overloaded by Amy's cuteness. That's not how Sonic works. He's too cool for that. Even Boom Sonic gets flustered but awkwardly plays it off.
>>454979 And that's us up to date with the Klonoa comic! >>454994 Yeah, people complain about how many Metal Sonic's get scrapped in Archie but we've seen a heap of robo-duplicates destroyed despite appearing to possess some amount of free will. Kinda fucked up really >>455011 Sonic X ruined a generation of shippers really. I'm glad Boom and later Archie salvaged that character assassination. Yeah, flirty Sonic's way better although the slight awkwardness in Boom was pretty cute
I really don’t know what they were thinking with Amy getting super aggressive and violent when sonic didn’t get her attention for a second. And people thinking sonic owes any for doing that shit. It really is a good thing they’re moving away and low key acknowledging that Amy was bit of a psycho in canon
>>455032 Yeah, I've been converting them to webms to speed up loadtime but something weird's causing it to break. I've actually got an entire list of things that need fixed, including some cross-board links not working and posts without any text saying "NA." So much to do!
>>455036 Actually, it fits best after after issue #42, which contains the first part of Knuckles's Quest, then Sonic Live has Tails back to knothole for the two first stories and then sonic Live conclude the second part of Knuckles's quest. It actually all mesh not that badly.
https://the-ride.neocities.org/threads/140233473.html#140233542 That comment about conflicting stories disturb me. Sally only gave one story, that she knew Knuckles. before that she acted like she didn't really knew him. Not really a story. But maybe it's just me being to anchored on words.
But then there is that comment about Sally having her "memories changed" and THAT really disturbs me.
>>455039 It's later revealed that she's always known Knuckles but pretended to not know him to protect him because he wasn't allowed to talk to anyone during his training. It's weird and doesn't make sense but it's the explanation.
https://the-ride.neocities.org/threads/140286054.html#140288387 wait, doesn't Sally's memorial appears, before that point, where the people of Knothole congregate around her thinking she is dead, or did I made that up in my head?
>>455067 And done! I'm thinking of doing more webcomics that are no longer available or hard to find. Feel free to make some recommendations >>455101 I decided against using mouse-based gestures since they wouldn't work on mobile. It's been pretty tricky to get all the features to work consistently across desktop and mobile. Which reminds me, I still need to get the post previews to work for mobile too

Sonic and the Freedom Fighters Notes Energy has always been a part of the Sonic franchise but it’s much more important for this series. There’s a hierarchy and various gods with their own power. But all energy, much like anything else in the multiverse, comes from one source. It will be interesting to see how various gods react to a certain character.
Sonic’s been hogging all those transformations. He needs to share them with others.
His name was Enerjak. A great echidna warrior and serving as Pachacamac’s right hand man. He was also very ambitious but remained obedient to his ruler. It seemed he was biding his time until he was presented an opportunity to act. Such a time came when he was called upon to receive a blessing from Chaos.
>>455153 >Sonic’s been hogging all those transformations. He needs to share them with others. Now that's interesting
>His name was Enerjak. A great echidna warrior and serving as Pachacamac’s right hand man. Enerjak serving someone else feel weird, to me, bu why not. >Such a time came when he was called upon to receive a blessing from Chaos. That's more like it.
>>455150 And that's the end of chapter 2! >>455153 >comes from one source The mind of Ken Penders! >Sonic’s been hogging all those transformations. He needs to share them with others. I don't know, I always get in trouble for posting transformation comics no mater which character gets tf'd >A great echidna warrior and serving as Pachacamac’s right hand man. That's an interesting direction. Dimitri's always been a nerdy scientist so having a warrior Enerjak from thee start would be cool >>455155 >Enerjak serving someone else feel weird, to me, bu why not. The original Enerjak was an unnamed Albion scientist, so Dimitri was the only incarnation that was a leader.
https://the-ride.neocities.org/threads/140326006.html#140326367 Unless I missed a key plot point, this doesn't look like a population that has given up on technology. Then again, everything is relative and maybe "giving up on technology" only means getting rid of your VCR and Sega Genesis.
>>455157 If they had a decent budget Nintendo wouldn't be able to poach all their best talent >and buying more ferraris for Yuji Naka. lmao, he got those Ferraris fair and square: through good old fashioned insider trading! >>455158 The whole thing's dumb, but this is 400 years after they renounced technology, although it's not clear just how much of it they actually gave up. I like to think they went Amish (i.e., tech only where necessary) for a while before fully re-embracing tech again.
>>455160 They've got a long way to go before they reach my level of mastery! Seriously though, it's great to see such talent in artists that young. You can really tell they've put the hours in to get that good. It's also nice to see younger fans enjoying older continuities like Archie and AoStH
Speaking of talented artsit: https://twitter.com/JadePesky/with_replies >This was the establishing page for a comic I wanted to make around my NFF AU.

>>455162 Huh. Kinda scary to think that we have multiple generations of fanartists now. That Sally Protest comic by Gonterman turned 26 this year! >>455163 Very nice!

>>455157 naka got fired for asking about salary the fuck they'd be buying him shit for but no i do agree, sonic team's management has always been utter shite no matter how much money or time you throw at them
>see for months of that one schizo telling me sally is terrible and worst of the ffs >read the comic >see that she's a decent compelling character with her own flaws, has good chemistry with Sonic but unfortunely gets fucked by the writers with dumb shit like geoffrey love triangle, etc
>>455167 🔵🦔❤️🦔🔴 It's so unfair they don't have echidnas in unicode but there's room for 5 cuneiform alphabets: 𒊓𒉈𒆪 ❤️ 𒈾𒆪𒍪 >>455169 Some people just really fucking hate her for some reason, mostly for dumb shipping reasons. If you're talking about IDWkun, it's because he was bullied off every Sonic forum, but was most salty about Archie/SatAM fans. Boco hates Sally because he's insane and obsessed with Sonaze. Sally's actually one of my favorite non-game characters because she has such a fun relationship with Sonic, even if you don't read it as romantic. At her core she's someone who was thrust into a de facto leadership position that rose to the occasion. She's caring, yet decisive when needed, and is one of the few people that can keep up with Sonic's banter. Actually, now that I think of it, rising to the occasion has been the core of all of the FF's character arcs. >>455170 Rouge, you've done it again!
>>455172 Agreed. I've even like the other FFs now too tho Sally was always the one to get so much bashing. Those people mad at some old forum shit need to move on for real. Always raving about archie fans not moving on but they literally can't either.
https://the-ride.neocities.org/threads/140380963.html#140381489 Wait, if Barbie and her friends weren't attached on the wall like Antoine and Bunnie in the first place, what did Bunnie freeing her right hand serve any purpose?
>>454689 Infested 1-21 https://flightyalrighty.tumblr.com Gross >>455174 Yeah, it's one thing to hold onto a continuity you like but holding onto old grudges is just pathetic. Sometimes I imagine what it'd be like if one of our schizos had to explain their day to someone who only has a casual understanding of Sonic. "I've spent every day for the last several years on an imageboard deleting posts and causing trouble whenever anyone mentions Sally Acorn. Who? Oh, she's this cartoon squirrel I hate from a cartoon that aired before I was born" Absolute madness
I've decided to not read any of the Nights issues. Just going to post them and react to stuff as I go through. I read them during the last ride or tried to. I remember the villain having unreadable dialogue. And the main girl having tits. Just going to blaze through it all in one thread.
>>455179 You can't fix that place but you can possibly win over some anons that are more open to enjoying Sonic content. I remember an anon saying they used to be over there but came to like Sonic comics and how our threads are and prefer being here. So there's that.
Another WIP and it's Nicole! Last page of issue 4 is by WhiteSexyRabbit (the second and newer artist) and Kakashihata (the one who's been working on the comic from the start) is working on the two previous pages. Things are rolling along and I'm ready to move on to the next arc. With a third artist interested in joining next month, the thought of a second series for Knuckles is on my mind more than ever. >>455189 I'll keep that in mind when the page is finished.
I'll blame it on the writers rather than the character, because it really make no sense, but it simply make no sense for Sonic to do nothing about Antoine's father. It's not like he had a fix mission he has to go to, he could just stay and sort this out.
But I guess that for the sake of Rob needing a sheriff to fight.
Still, I hate when writers pull that sort of contrivances, only to have the characters bite back by afterward, because by then, they have realised that "oh yeah, that was a fucked up thing to do in the first palce..."
>>454689 https://www.deviantart.com/princessgalaxia9/ Amy's Family - Ch 2 - 14 Sure, the ominous figure seems like an important development, but instead, I am more intrigued on how it seems the line between Robo Sonic and Sonic is starting to blur, maybe.
Also, Conductor, it might look like PrincessGalaxia9 has seen your question and decided to give you a clear answer: for her, it's 4.
>>455180 >>455181 This. I get the feeling we'll win over most of the non-schizos once we have our own board >>455183 You know, if your comic was published in IDW they'd make the artist change that expression. Pic related was a revision made for the TBP >>455185 Damn, that artist does some good smut >>455190 Cute! >the thought of a second series for Knuckles is on my mind more than ever. That'd be so cool! >>455191 Yeah, it's one of those "we could resolve it, but want to keep it for a later issue" when it comes to the sheriff
Oh, and before I forget. Did anyone end up reading Sticky Floors? I was thinking of doing more webcomics that have since been deleted but wanted to gauge interest first. Also happy to take suggestions. Anyway, you can read it here if you're interested: >>455066
>>455209 >SOVL vs soulless It totally is. The sidemouth doesn't even make anatomical sense! >Must be rough living in the No Gays Allowed Zone. Yeah, that's gotta suck. I'm not sure how KrazyELF, TooDamnCycle and the rest get away with it
>>455210 No need. The thread is at already 440+ posts. >>455211 >Yeah, that's gotta suck. I'm not sure how KrazyELF, TooDamnCycle and the rest get away with it I feel bad when I see artists obviously want to do gay stuff and I see they're from Russia and I understand why they don't.
>>455212 I skimmed through most of the thread but gave up due to the schizos. I have no idea what causes them to spend so much time talking about stuff they hate >>455213 >I feel bad when I see artists obviously want to do gay stuff and I see they're from Russia and I understand why they don't. Yeah, I'd be doing the same in their position. I hope things improve for them at some point
I just read through SatFF and I do like it but I got some problems with it. I think dialogue is fine for most part but comic has a habit of characters just explaining backstory and stuff. Kinda bad in issue 1. Like I get it needs to happen but it’s weird to see a lot of exposition dumping often. Also I think the various canons things being added so much needs to be toned down a bit as you keep adding a ton and can be a bit hard to digest. Don’t wanna pull an Ian with setting too much plot points and shit instead of focusing on the story quality. And since the comic is called Sonic and the Freedom Fighters, I’d like to to a lot more interpersonal relationships they have. Like we make fun of the whole sonic bechdel test. So I really wanna see what relations members have between each other specifically than just sonic. I get the comic focuses a ton on sally and sonic but I don’t want them to just talk to each other even as someone who loves the ship. I’d like to see them interact with others like sally & Tails, sonic and bunnie, etc. also I’d read some books on making comics and writing advice to just generally improve in creating.
I hope that was clear, and understandable. And to make it even clearer, it’s not from a place of hate but love to make sure you can make the bestest sonic fan comic evar!!! So don’t feel too bad. Pic unrelated
>>455224 Thanks for the comment! Let me respond to the various things. >the flashbacks allow the series to get some background info out of the way and not have the characters awkwardly bring it up and that's why they're limited to a few pages each issue >i will be cutting down on different plot points and characters for the next arc although there's still some side stuff going on, it's mostly setting up stuff later on >for example, you get an idea of what happened to mobotropolis but you don't know exactly what happened and why, stuff like that isn't necessary and that will be touched upon later >even though people are used to seeing sonic and sally interacting with each other, that's not the case in this new series and shouldn't be skipped over or reduced >sonic and sally's emotional reliance on each other is a very important element and i want that laid out as soon as possible (i could just toss all the other characters aside and make it entirely sonic and sally, there are plenty of comics that focus on a ship) >there are plenty of instances of the various characters talking to each other and the series is still in its first full arc (not counting the first issue) so there's a need to establish the major relationships and have those characters interact with each other >for example, bunnie and antoine are a known couple but in this series the first step was just taken for them to go from friends to something more >in order to make this transition look more natural there needs to be scenes of them interacting with each other >and the sonic 2 arc will be focusing on sonic and tails' relationship which is why i was fine with tails not doing much in the sonic cd arc but i still had him get hurt and show sonic get concerned and angry which also led to him suggesting they kill eggman (a statement made in the heat of the moment) and bunnie chastising him I never want to shut down criticisms and I do pay attention to what people say, good or bad. But I have seen people come to conclusions and treat the comic like it should be one thing or that it shouldn't cover something that they've seen enough in other comics. Managing a team of protagonists isn't easy and some characters and interactions with characters will need to be fleshed out over time. That is all taken into consideration. It just takes time to do so.

>>455235 Can you believe they actually tried to shit a Lower Decks thread, saying no one wanted to talk about this show, claiming it should be an ADC thread instead and started having "argument" about it in it?

Hey TP, don't know if that was intentional, but you archived the Night thread way too early: https://the-ride.neocities.org/threads/140416184 There were tons of great art worthy of collecting after the end of the story-time.
>>455224 While I enjoy the current pace, I can see why all these things happening so fast can make it a little harder to follow. That said, it's hard to strike the right balance between keeping the comic moving fast enough that the main plot won't take a decade. Assuming 2 pages a week that's around 100 pages a year, which would mean we'd need around 10 years to do 50 issues and 150 years to match Archie's pagecount. I definitely agree about wanting to see the non-Sonic cast get more relationship development. Fortunately we'll be seeing more of that in the upcoming issues >Pic unrelated Hard disagree, the comic should've pivoted to nothing but Sonknux smut ages ago! I kid, I kid >>455227 I've got to say, you do a great job of responding to criticisms and comments here and elsewhere. I always find that stuff difficult >>455229 >I repeat... please don't be a fetish... With tentacles on the cover, I'd be more surprised if it didn't >>455230 >Classic Boom Knuckles. Oh my! >>455232 >coming soon Just finish the main one first! >>455235 Delightfully devilish Konductor! >>455238 Self-insert comics are my secret favorite! I just love the idea of a fan having the balls to say "yeah, that's me hanging out with Sonic, saving the day and macking on all the hotties, what of it?" >>455243 >Hey TP, don't know if that was intentional, but you archived the Night thread way too early Archived now! I usually archive once the storytime is over and then again when the new thread is up. The process is pretty fast (and fully automated now!) so I'm fine with doing it multiple times. I'll also archive during a storytime just so I can see the deletion times for posts to confirm what our special friend's up to >There were tons of great art worthy of collecting after the end of the story-time. I'm surprised I didn't get in trouble for any of them!
https://www.deviantart.com/roseduelistbbshm/art/StH-A-Komometz-Capture-992462399 At first, i thought RoseDuaelist had drown a Mobian-sonna for TP, but it turn out Komometz the Bat King is an actual AostH character: https://sonic.fandom.com/wiki/King_Kommamachs
>>455245 >At first, i thought RoseDuaelist had drown a Mobian-sonna for TP, but it turn out Komometz the Bat King is an actual AostH character lmao, that's almost exactly how I'd design a Sonicsona, right down to it being a bat! Now I'm wondering if AoStH subconsciously influenced me >>455246 No worries! I usually archive more often, mostly depending on how much I'm procrastinating
>>455198 Looks like Robo Sonic is not allowed to have fun. If that's still Robo Sonic?
>>455208 >I love his cute little Shadow top I wonder if him not having fully integrated Sonic's memory just accidentally took it from Shadow, or if Sonic actually has Shadow-themed night-clothes in his closet, somehow.
Also, it looks like the Yandere Smile is non-symmetric, teeth-wise, which explain why I had so much difficulty making it out the first time it appeared.
>>455249 >I wonder if him not having fully integrated Sonic's memory just accidentally took it from Shadow, or if Sonic actually has Shadow-themed night-clothes in his closet, somehow. I honestly think he has it just because he likes Shadow in a (probably) platonic way and is a genuine fan of him >Also, it looks like the Yandere Smile is non-symmetric, teeth-wise, which explain why I had so much difficulty making it out the first time it appeared. Yeah, the left image is regular creepy smile Amy with regular eyes and the right one has an asymmetric smile with a pointy tooth and dark eyes. The second one is shown in more detail behind robo-Sonic here: >>455198
>>455244 >I've got to say, you do a great job of responding to criticisms and comments here and elsewhere. I always find that stuff difficult The most difficult balance for me is listening to feedback deciding whether to take the advice or refuse. Because someone shouldn't change their work based on the opinions of others but if there are things holding the comic back and ways to improve it then ignoring such advice isn't good. I should be more selfish since I think a creator is better when they listen to their intuition more than others. As long as I don't pick up any of Penders' bad habits. Imagine being his apprentice and having him talk to you and tell you what to do on a daily basis.
>>455256 NTA, anon who made the post about your comic and I read your reply. I hope it didn't entirely seem I was trying to change your comic too much. I just wanted to give some criticism among the compliments you get, and yeah, I hope you dont become a penders like egotist lol. Just want to make sure your comic can truly excell
>>455257 It's no problem. I understand. Handling character interactions and figuring out who to include and what continuity to take from is tricky when there are so many moving parts. At least the criticisms aren't anything major like being unreadable or full of unlikable characters or it's boring or nonsensical.
>>455258 True. If anything, I hope the ride you're doing will just refresh your memory on stuff that didnt work to avoid and stuff that did to strengthen that and missed opportunities for good storytelling to implement
>>455256 Yeah, it's a tricky one. I think it's pretty normal to make a few minor changes when readers point out something interesting, but I wouldn't want to make any major changes. It's important for there to be a strong author's voice in the comic, so long as you don't go full Penders! Rereading the old Knuckles comics it's surprising just how good he can be at writing. It's pretty clear that closing himself off to all criticism caused the majority of his issues. Dude didn't even take Dawn Best's advice on retooling his Echidna redesigns >>455262 I guess it's not just us then. Really goes to show how much one mod can do to drive off users. Interestingly, 2021's around the same time /trash/ overtook 4/co/ as a more popular board
