Sonic Boom Character What-ifs - Rouge (updated) by Blue-Paint-Sea Sonic Boom Character What-ifs - Rouge (updated) by Blue-Paint-Sea
Updated 06 / 29 / 2014
Now with character interactions & more colour!


Yeah, I'm definitely more excited about this than I should be, but honestly, I just couldn't help myself.

With characters like Orbot, Cubot, and potentially Shadow, being planed to appear, I'm sure many of us are / have been wondering; if there are other characters in the sonic universe appearing in Boom as well, what would they look like? Would their appearance change a little or a lot? Would their personalities & traits be the same or altered as well?

Well, at one point I thought of Rouge, then an idea just sparked, and the result was this piece. 

Rouge's traits - 
  • Taking cues from Ray the flying squirrel, Rouge's new appearance would involve having her wings on her arms like real bats. However, she would have the unique ability to expand them to the point where they would be nearly twice as large as she is, allowing her to fly with much more strength during bad weather conditions, or when carrying someone or something.
  • While her wings are powerful, Her body shape would be altered for the same reason as Knuckles, in the sense of having more emphasis on where the majority of her muscles are. In her case, lower body strength due to her kickboxing, which would also lightly explain the loss of her boots in favour of workout wear.
  • Although the end result of her new figure makes her look somewhat chubby, this could relate to the fact that her appetite grew due to her constant workout sessions. Every once & a while it would be poked fun at by Amy, but Rouge would take them as compliments, representing the fact that she wouldn't care what other people think of her physique, and just lives life in whatever way she feels comfortable.
Amy - 
"what exactly do you see in that clumsy hulk anyway?"
Rouge - 
"I don't know hun I guess next to jewels I also have a thing for guys with burly physiques. y'know, like MANY girls do?"
Amy - 
"says the bat with the extremely large hips" *mumble-grumble*.
Rouge -
"jealous?":eyebrows:
  • She would still be a treasure hunter, and would still tease Sonic and his friends, but Rouge's personality would be more like how she was first portrayed in Adventure 2. Her flirting would be toned down a notch to make her much less of a slut and more of a character who enjoys her day job, while leaving any sort of legit affections towards Knuckles. 
Because seriously, just pair her up with Knuckles already. It was one of the reasons she was created in SA2 anyway, besides being his rival.
  • Because of the more humorous tone of the game & show, She would also be one of those characters who would see slapstick moments as another ordinary daily occurrence, especially when she experiences toon-esque scenarios herself that the other characters would question.

But what do you guys think? Should I do more like this? Do you agree / disagree with this alteration? Let me know in the comments below!

I love this redesign :3
I wish she could have been included but I can understand that this body shape would have been a little...much.

IMO, while this character does have a well made personality, the legs are too much. While Knuckles has a huge upper body, it still goes with his physicality, Rouge on the other hand looks way too disproportionate, like those awkward pics you see on this site.

I suggest that if you draw her again, make her legs like you did in your Rouge olympic drawing, but SLIGHTLY muscular. Again, your Cream and Cheese design is very good on the other hand, and Sega should get in contact with you to use their appearance and story.

Thanks for the mini critique, I'll keep that in mind if & when I draw her again. : )

I guess to elaborate why in the first place; the exaggeration was for toon based aesthetics, as well as a bit of diversity in design when compared to the rest of the cast. Its more supposed to emphasize that, in this universe, Rouge would be just as much of a power character as knuckles is, but being lower body strength instead of upper body. Which is a shame that she barely shows it after SA2, with the exception of Sonic Battle, since all she does now is toss bombs. (obviously not counting the comics)

trust me, I've seen some pretty awkward versions of her on this site too. However, as this is merely one of many fan versions of the character, it isn't supposed to be taken TOO seriously either. I highly doubt SEGA would take inspiration from some random artist for actual canon material.

I understand fully now. Though personally, your Cream and Cosmo designs for Boom are without doubt the best i've seen thus far. Keep up the good work, man! :D

Never... this would ruin the character completely. She looks so horrible like this. I'm sorry, but I doubt that Sega or BRB would change her like that. That is not her style.

I kind of like this, but I think Rouge is a little bit too chunky. Don't get me wrong, I agree that she should have more leg than the other female characters, but it doesn't seem very aerodynamic or stealthy for a bat.

I can really get behind this!  I like to think that Amy is just secretly jealous of Rouge's voluptuous curves.  xD  "Dangit my butt is practically non-existent in comparison with hers!!!! D:< "

This is an awesome redesign! Rouge still carries that classic sexiness, but her look is still practical. I dig the wings and the outfit that you've chosen for her. Her physique is quite eye-catching as well. Well done.

I don't really like now big her hips are. But I LOVE how her wings are on her arms. I also really like her outfit.

The truth ?, the design does not seem very nice (Only 50% - 60%). But, I like the idea that the wings are in their arms (as if they were membranes) instead of your back, making it more realistic. What they do not call me are their exaggerated hips. But still, I applaud your effort to try to believe a drawing with bases of these changes.
Keep going in all your drawings.
