*sigh* Happy Halloween, I guess... by Rally-the-Cheetah
*sigh* Happy Halloween, I guess...
Zor:I don't see what's so happy about it.  Bunch of losers running around in costumes. Lame.

Ahem, yes, well despite his lack of enthusiasm Zor is finished and here's a photo of the final product ^^; . Sorry for the grainy photo, don't really have a good camera so I've been using my husband's cell phone. 
Zor Jack-O-Lantern Stencil by Rally-the-Cheetah
Zor Jack-O-Lantern Stencil
Difficulty LVL Medium. Tip for small freckles and teeth lines: rather than trying to carve them out simply use flat ended toothpicks for his teeth lines and round toothpicks or small thumbtacks for the freckles.   

And this year we continue with the the Deadly Six and have Zor, the emo prince of the Zeti =D . Had a few requests for this guy last year when I did Zavok but I figured I'd do the leader first then the others. Gotta say, Zor is one of my favs though with all his sarcastic negativity. His design is also much simpler which is good news for me because with an increase in work hours and midterm next week I sadly won't have much spare time for pumpkin carving. Still I'll be sure get a picture of this guy when he's all done.  

For those not sure how to use stencils I have a tutorial here rally-the-cheetah.deviantart.c…

I'll come out and say it right now: I'm liking what I'm seeing of Sonic BOOM. Yeah the change in character designs took some getting used to but seeing the clean models at E3 I feel I like them much better now. The alpha stage ones were, well, a little ugly.

This said, I notice the comments and hype for Sonic BOOM is a real mixed bag and range anywhere from people loving it to seeing it as blasphemous. Oddly enough I'm not bothered by this, in fact I find myself delighted by it. It's strange really, at first I thought I felt this way because the fact that such a strong argument even exists shows Sonic is still popular and loved by many people. But, as started posting my thoughts about the game around various sites, I think I found another reason. As was typing a comment in the Sonic Stadium news section I mentioned how there are many different takes on Super Heroes, and how sometimes these takes are drastically different from one another. The Adam West Batman is much different than, say, Nolan's image of Batman. Then it hit me: I'm comparing Sonic to super heroes. And not just Super heroes, in the post I mentioned icons like Batman, Superman, Spider-man, the Avengers and even Godzilla. Yes I mostly used these as examples because they all were starring in recent movies, but, hey, they are starring in recent movies . I've always considered Sonic an icon but he was always a gaming icon. I don't know, for some reason throwing in the word "gaming" just doesn't seem to hold as much weight. Maybe it's because it's limiting the word icon. When you say it you're basically saying he's only an icon to the gaming community. But now I feel that's starting to change. For the first time ever a Sonic game is being based on a cartoon series; in other words one form of Sonic media is directly impacting another. Yes, Sonic is not new to the TV series scene but none of those shows really ever had any influence on games. Yeah there were cameos sometimes in games like say the mini pinball game in Sonic pinball with Princess Sally and the race track in Sonic All Stars Racing with an image of Sonia on the track but those don't really count. No, until this point the game version of Sonic has been in his own little universe, untouched by any event or story in other Sonic media. Now that's changed... Sorta. It's already been said that the Sonic Boom universe is it's own entity and the events in it don't relate to events in other Sonic media and visa versa.  In other words it's a different take on Sonic, a reimagining, a revamp. But, unlike comic revamps or reboots, the game Sonic well all know will not be effected. I guess this makes sense seeing as the show and game aren't going to be available in Japan and are pretty much a Western take on Sonic but, hey, Sonic's been revamped! He's going through the same stages as comic heroes when their stories get rewritten. That means, in some small way, he's becoming as much of an icon as they are, even though he hasn't been around nearly as long w00t! . 

The fact that a Sonic movie has been confirmed even furthers this notion. Sonic's going into the big leagues, for better or worse. Am I excited for all this? You bet! But I'm also a little worried. Movies based on games have been, for the most part, notoriously bad. With Sonic BOOM already splitting the fan base a movie might be too much too soon; especially since it's rumored to be a mix of live action and CG. Still, one never knows. Maybe it'l be all right Unimpressed .
