Songs of Freedom by MegaDaelon

A pretty good drawing lately in my opinion. I've been terribly busy with my job lately. I can hardly come up to color the sketches I've made, which is why I upload them before I finish the actual work.

Here's Sally Acorn in a drawing that most likely refers to her sacrifice in Issue 230. I'm sure people are sick of it already. "Ooh, Sally is a robot which makes her a Mary Sue!" "Ooh, how dare you, Flynn!"

Sally made up to the times she wasn't able to help. For once, she did something that made up for the time her mental instability made her do things she didn't want to do (like slap Sonic). She made it all up to everyone by saving everyone and even though she's not real I still hope she gets at least a slice of the cake for giving up her own life to save yours (referring to your fancharacters, who, without Sally's help, would be mindless robots now.)

I don't know what to believe anymore. "Flynn hates SatAM and kills them one by one." Antoine is in a coma. Bunnie is on her own. Max is dying. Geoffery is suffering. Sally is gone. "Flynn makes the comics more interesting." Sally was bland lately. Flynn fixed her story up, made her more interesting and yet still everyone hates her.

I've actually heard a rumour that the weaponized Mecha Sally is actually a redesign of Sally and once Sally is restored, she'll join the games. I truly enjoy the idea as Amy was the bland character in the games and she needs competition or just needs to go away. I'd love to see Sally and Amy as friends though. It'd rock the earth, make it softer, make space for something new. Sally is a great role model for children and I hope SEGA is making the right decision in adding her to the games and I hope she will be useful and I hope Sally fans won't go "IN YOUR FACE!" on Amy fans. It'd just cause more whining.

Originally it had the silhouettes of Amy, Tails and Sonic in the background, but I took them out as I didn't do a full body drawing of Sonic yet that I liked which I could use and I'm not sure if people are sick of the "Sally sacrifice" artwork, so I made it less obvious that this is one.

"... Sally ..." is Nicole's AI mourning Sally as she was responsible for Sally's sacrifice in the first place and she was with her. She witnessed it. Witnessed her friend passing, changing. Oh, the terrible things everyone needs to go through.

The title is a reference to what made tons of people call her a Mary Sue. The fact that she sung to a Flicky (bird) to talk to it. I think it makes perfect sense for me. It wasn't sure if the Flicky understood Amy at all in Sonic Adventure 1 and Sally is basically a Flicky herself, so it just makes sense that she can talk to one. Sally was often stated as a Flicky friend, so she's spent a lot of time with Flickies and thus, can talk to them.

I know how you feel about how Flynn completely butchering the series. Sally just did not look right being essentially their equivalent of the Heavy Weapons Guy. And don't forget other stuff happening, such as what happened to Mina, and how Nicole gets treated like a traitor, even though it was apparent that she was being mind-controlled. I still like the series though, but not as much due to this stuff happening. I understand what you mean by it though.

Also, you might wanna check out my one Deviant Art friend, GameBoySage. He's sort of a Sonic fan, and he also agrees with what Flynn's doing is really making it go downhill. GameBoySage also expresses it in similar ways too, like in these artworks of his.
Artwork by him, explaining how Flynn is probably going to be the downfall of Archie Sonic --> [link]
Another artwork by him, telling about what SHOULD HAVE happened in it. --> [link]

Just thought I'd let you know about this, Daelon.

Though I don't read the comics, and I will say it it's mostly because I'm a Sonic/Amy fan, but Sally sacrificed herself? That's big and the art is nice, if Sally DOES show up

in the game, while I do hope their won't make her Sonic's main love interest, I will love it if their make Amy and Sally as friends.

This has come a long way since the sketch that you posted before, and may I say it came a long way in the best way possable.
I really enjoy the way you colored this, everything seems smooth, the colors are fitting and the style seems much like your own, which is good to see that your coming much into your own style though i still enjoy your older work.
I really agree with the points you have made here, but of corse as everyone must know by now there is no way to make all the fans happy, which I credit Ian for trying to make a blance of things but there will always be the complainers, period.
I really enjoy the Archie Comics for what they are, for what they have become over the years. It might just be me and my rather easy going attitude but I like the series over all, sure its has it faults but so does every media of the Sonic Series from games, comics, books, and cartoons. But they all have their good points,(though some are harder to find *CoughSonicXCough*) and their bad points.
The thought of Sally entering the games really does make me happy, I have always been interested in the character (Before I got the comics as a younger child or watched SatAM I loved her design) but then once I got to know the character, I loved the whole character. I am unsure what Ian and his team have planned up for Sally, but I'm hoping for the best.

I'm hoping for the best for princess Sally too. I never really liked the Sonic fanchrise. It's mostly the fandom and the art style that pulled me in. I never watched SatAM as a child. Only as an adult, but Sally struck me as one of those nature loving, tomboy badass women I've always looked up to.

And thanks for the kind words. I'm really glad I haven't lost my style yet as I used to just imitate SEGA, until I realized their artwork is garbage.

I think I was first pulled in havinga SEGA Genesis as a kid and playing his games, then the cartoon finally came in MUCH later and the comics soon to follow. I'm a big fan of the badass tomboy girls myself so naturally I had a draw towards Sally as well.

And your very welcome, I love to see artists grow and come into their own style, I mean even I used to try and pretty much make the SEGA style as well, always failed but you know I think thats sort of how Sonic Fanartists start out naturally. I am not a fan of their work as a whole, though I can easily pick out certain styles or pictures I do enjoy from them.

Ahh, I understand. Thanks for sharing your story, it was interesting. >w< I used to be a complete Sonic fag, but I calmed down and learned to hate the series now though.

Hehe no problem, I am sorry a chatter box naturally so sorry I kinda when off there a moment. I guess I myself am a hardcore fan, but thats because he holds a special place in my heart and always will no matter what, I didn't have friends as a kid much so I played video games more so Sonic games and I guess the fun and enjoyment of those games filled in for the friendlessness. I can easily say that I can easily pick out all the problems in the Sonic series now as well as the fandom itself, but all series and fandoms do have their flaws. I can't honestly say I could ever hate the series though, but I do respect your opinion and from what I read from you from time to time I understand where you are coming from. ^^

I understand. I hate the bland-ness of the current games and how they are slowly morphing into a hedgehog version of Mickey Mouse Club House. Even Amy sounds EXACTLY like Minnie, but it's better than her shrieky voice in the previous games and Sonic Wrecks.

I'm glad you accept my opinion, even though I tend to be rude at times when I honestly don't mean to be.

Yes its true that Sonic seems to be heading farther and farther into a super Kid friendly franchise, to a point where its adult followers are left with a simple: WTF. I sometimes feel a bit dumbed down a a bit bored with the games as of late, though it hasn't stopped me from playing them, for some reason. I try also not to pay anymore attetion to the voices anymore since they change so often, though I have noted the betterment change to Amy's.

Well, I guess sometimes you can come off sounding a bit rude, though I have never really felt that personally, I can really see where someone might mistake it for rudeness. I just understand I guess, because I can be that way to (or so I am often told) I am just say, straight to the point sometimes.

Ugh, I dont know what to think of Flynn eaither...

He fixes up Sally, only to have her blown away by a canon turret, brings her back, only for her to be then roboticized, then Sonic doesnt show any emotion because of SEGA's BS mandates. And lets not forget the SonAmy innuendos after 230...

I hope the rumor of her being in the games is true, but with whats going on at SOJ, I doubt it...

But y'know, if they wanted to give her a design change to put her in the games, they could have just changed it instead of doing these horrible things to her. Or better yet, dont change her design at all, I dont see anything wrong with it.

Sorry about the rant there, but nice work.

I like this colouring style better than your usual style, especially the eyes. The other one was a lot like Sonic x and now it seems to have developed more into your OWN style! It's GREAT!
