Revival of M (Colored) by SonicWindAttack Revival of M (Colored) by SonicWindAttack
This crazy idea started over a year ago, when I was able to meet Ian Flynn himself at HeroesCon.  He told me that the recent Shadow Fall arc in the Archie Sonic comics was originally going to have Black Doom and Mephiles the Dark as the antagonists, but Sega scrapped the idea.  However, I was so in love with the idea I couldn't get it out of my head.  I thought to myself, "What if we used this story for Lost Hedgehog Tales?".  I wanted to find a way to make it look convincing, and then it hit me, what better way to bring this idea to life than to combine the talents of a skilled Archie fan and someone who officially works there?  Inspired by the movie poster to the film "Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'", a film I thoroughly enjoyed (though I preferred the Japanese title "Revival of 'F'"), I had the legendary :iconglitcher: draw and ink this out, and :iconherms85: himself did the colors.  Seriously, you both did an awesome job, I can't thank you enough.  I hope everyone enjoys this product of my craziness, and I really hope this idea makes it into Lost Hedgehog Tales.

For me, that name would be too much, i'd prefer if the next form would be named "Super Deity Sonic".

For the love of guardiurge, just when each viewers doesn't even properly analyze and shorten it for something so simple it had to be the case.

Mephiles: I did not come back from the void, FOR THIS!!!
Shadow: For once in your life, face death with honor, and don't dream of resurrecting again!

Awesome Sonic the Hedgehog reinterpretation of the Resurrection "F" movie poster.  The line art is very energetic, and the colors and lighting add a ton of power to the scene.

Mephiles is the main antagonist in my Lost Hedgehog Tales fan fiction story which is a crossover between Archie Sonic and Fullmetal Alchemist.

Black Doom and Mephiles certainly is an interesting team up. When you think about it it makes sense since both harbor an intense hatred towards humanity.

Well, not really Black Doom... he probably just thinks of them as another food source. But Mephiles, definitely.

Well I think its also because he views humanity as a sinful and inferior species or something.

Looks damn good! And yes, I too refer to Resurrection F as Revival of F. It just sounds better.

I didn't bother seeing the movie since I was already in the middle of the Battle of Gods saga in Dragon Ball S and the Revival of F saga is currently underway, but since I saw the unextended, subbed version of Battle of Gods and never bothered watching the extended dubbed version or Revival of F, I'm tempted to get them on DVD now.

As much as I love DBZ movies, I'm always a little reluctant to watch them. DBZ movies tend to feel rushed for me; I prefer the thrill of suspense the TV series gives by stretching events out over different sagas, but since I enjoyed Battle of Gods, I might as well.

SonicWindAttack Featured By Owner Nov 23, 2015
Yeah, they are kinda rushed, but still enjoyable. I personally thought Battle of Gods was much better on the big screen than in Dragon Ball Super.

I'm kind of the opposite- I like long, drawn out stories. They keep me interested and on-edge. Although I do question the differences between BoG and Super's two different versions. In the anime, it was entirely over the see and away from West City. In Toyataro/Toyble's adaptation manga, part of it takes place in the city, and the rest above water, and brings back the mention of the other universes, which the anime oddly lacked. I also preferred how Super depicted Vegeta. He felt very ooc in BoG. But why are they even retelling it through the anime and manga? Was Toriyama not satisfied with how Battle of Gods turned out, even though it and Revival of F are the most successful new DBZ movies?

Sorry, I wouldn't know. I suppose it's a marketing decision, because they know that even if they recycle the same plot people will still watch it. But I am excited for the upcoming arc with the tournament from the Sixth and Seventh Universes.

Heh, maybe he was able to evolve himself via the Black Arms' mastery of Chaos Control.  Or he changes form to become Sonic's shadow instead of Shadow's.

Nice :) I had the same idea kinda, But Mephiles and Iblis were the Good guys kinda, and Mecha Sonic had return, and the whole thing took place after smbz and after that witch led to  Sonic the Hedgehog Revival of 'M' So Cool :)

Wow, that was fast! Either Herms coloured this during his lunch break or he has a lot of time to spare for DA commissions. I'm as delighted as you are with how well this turned out. Honestly, when you commissioned me to draw this, it was only intended as an inked piece, so I made it at medium resolution with heavy emphasis on blacks. If you told me in advance that you wanted Herms to colour it, I would have doubled the image size and allocated more white space. Indeed, I notice that the full resolution is more than twice that at which I inked it. Still, I'm pleased Herms managed to decipher the intertwining lines well enough to paint the purple energy. Everything about this looks great. It's an honour to have Matt Herms colour my artwork. And an even greater honour to have someone else pay for it. ;)

So now that you've seen your idea given form, do you plan on developing it further with a story, or are you just pitching this concept for Lost Hedgehog Tales?

PS. I noticed a small error: The missiles underneath Omega's miniguns are supposed to be red, not grey.

:iconsonicwindattack:
SonicWindAttack Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2015
Sorry about that. ^^; I actually wasn't planning to have it colored at first, either.  I only got the idea after the fact.  Still, I'm glad Herms still found a way to make it work, and even more so that you're happy with the result.  It was an honor to work with both of you. :D And if the idea is accepted for Lost Hedgehog Tales, I would very much like to be the one in charge of writing it.  I already have a few ideas in mind.  We'll just have to see how well it mixes with Ian's upcoming draft.  But this would definitely make a perfect cover for the issue where it begins. :plotting:

Oh, you're right.  I didn't even notice that.  Oh well, no big deal.  Doesn't subtract from the awesomeness of this beauty at all. :D
