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 -
  • 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 never thought there would be a way to make Rouge hotter.

And this is why other characters are not in Sonic Boom... Yet. In all honestly, I'd like to see a 'Boom' Silver.

SHADOWSHAUN200 Featured By Owner Feb 18, 2015  Hobbyist Artist
Cool will you do one for E123 Omega?
DE-Juanchi Featured By Owner Feb 13, 2015
she's like the girlfriend next door,  or the chick in hooker street....what kind of reference did you used when you drew her!?

don't get me wrong i like it and i wish they put her in the game and the show!!! i mean come on sonic isnt the same without rouge around.
FofoSosa Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2015
I love it!

I just have a question, how is she gonna carry someone if she needs her arms to fly?
naar99 Featured By Owner Feb 10, 2015
On her back or they could hold onto her legs.
naar99 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2015
Gotta say pretty awesome design. Props to you man.
shojoboy1024 Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2015  Student
Pretty awesome desgin, and yeah she does look rather chubby, but hey there is a reason for it. And I like the wings on her arms, it looks cool
AngelaBlue18 Featured By Owner Jan 30, 2015  Student Artist
If rouge see's this, she will go into a pissy fit...
Jetblack95 Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2015  New member Student Artist
it looks a little bit better if her thighs were a bit less fat
mirandaacorn Featured By Owner Jan 13, 2015
Fat.:( (Sad) 
CaineShaw Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2015  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Not sure you know what fat is.

sangenjin Featured By Owner Dec 30, 2014
Amazing, wonder if your going to do more charecters? Also if they'll look as radically different as her.
arcticlover3 Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2014
i... am... speechless...
SonicDBZFan4125 Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2014  Hobbyist Filmographer
ew... hips to big, tail hairless and her wings looked better on her back. i don't like the design but it was still well done and drawn
ohmanherecomesjesus Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2014
....................fuck it, I love it.
UltimaRedFox Featured By Owner Dec 17, 2014  Student General Artist
Oh god, put fur on that tail
DelDiz Featured By Owner Dec 14, 2014
I think this is a really solid design and it's beautifully drawn. The only comment I have is that the definition of the leg muscles looks a little off, not that it isn't anatomically correct, because it is, but that it's TOO naturalistic for the Sonic universe. Even Knuckles' new muscles are stylized enough so he fits in with the rest of the lineup. I'd streamline the legs a bit more, but that's just my style. It's a masterpiece anyway.

Can I just say I LOVE LOVE LOVE your design! It's really creative!!! I think it's fantastic that you gave her a different body time because not all ladies are skinny! The wings are a GORGEOUS idea the way you have them like WOW WOW WOW stars in my eyes forever!!! Hope to see more of this gorgeous version of my favorite jewel loving spy!
kurushi94 Featured By Owner Dec 6, 2014
She too fat she was not like that before

Rouge Like Food Mcdonalds Burger King Hardee's Pizza Hut
Ardhamon Featured By Owner Dec 4, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
I love the idea of making her chubby a bit. Honestly gives better variety of body shapes in the Sonic the Hedgehog universe. That's just my opinion.
Sanddy273 Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I love this desing!! The shape, wings AWSOME!!!
Sonikku-za-Hejjihogg Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
And awe!!! look at Knuckles and Rouge xD lols 
Sonikku-za-Hejjihogg Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2014  Hobbyist Writer


but seriously, oh wow! This redesign is very interesting indeed. Especially those hips and thighs but it makes sense; to me i thought it was because you know she has very powerful legs so all that is muscle lols. She's like Chun Lee of Sonic Boom! lol.

I really like this, seriously :3 
Nazgul777 Featured By Owner Edited Nov 13, 2014
Those hips are ADORABLE. I love how you painted the entire personality of this interpretation across one big image. By the time you reach the end, you know what she's all about. I'd be surprised if the producers were as progressively minded as yourself, but you've brought this version of Rouge into being regardless.
AceBlazewing Featured By Owner Edited Nov 11, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
I personally think she looks good. The wings on the arms is an unexpected but cool touch, and I like that she's curvy, yet still looks slightly pudgy in the belly. There are hardly any female main characters these days with even a bit of chubbiness to them unless they're overly huge. Also, her interactions with the other characters here make me smile.
Retro7 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2014   General Artist
Yeah I gotta agree, tone down the hips a bit. But otherwise very unique design. Nice work!
Arkus0 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Not a fan of the belly, but otherwise a well thought out and interesting re-design ^^
ani89 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2014
The hour glass figure you gave seems uneven, this is my opinion, but maybe shave off the hips and stomach a bit.... Just throwing my two cents in. Stil an awesome design though, hope CN uses it.
MasterOfZoroark Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I approve of this design, I hope she somehow looks like this if she ever makes an appearance on the show. Also, dem hips~ Monkey love
Fantastic work on this, man! w00t!
ladyyukon Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2014  Student Digital Artist
I REALLY like this idea one thing though, the area between the stomach and chest its too skinny. I'm questioning if she has a rib cage or not. If we evened that out so she has organs where they should be. This is great! Just that one thing that's all.
rabbidlover01 Featured By Owner Oct 28, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
I guess changes don't bother me.
HeartinaThePony Featured By Owner Oct 21, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
IniStrife Featured By Owner Oct 20, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
....this is in fact a well balanced idea. And it would keep her traits while hopefully put the "fans" a bit back on the ground.

Since Rouge always was a fun character when you really look into her.
I for once like this design and the ideas~
AskBriannaWolfia Featured By Owner Oct 14, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
She looks too...human, for my tastes, especially how the leg muscles are drawn. I'm not gonna lie, this design is amazing. She's just a tad too tall and a tad too human.
spencer1010 Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2014
Its rouge the Kardashian
AskTheMonkeyKing Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2014
I'm not going to lie I love this design and I would like if Sega actually used this design or something similar cause hey it's a reboot things are bound to change... I love Rouge... I mean it's hard to not love the original design but since the reboot I would hope she is involved instead of see her left behind to be forgotten.... Like I said Great Design.))
Blazeingman Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2014
I really like the design of rouge and the cream design you did. I especially like how you put the wings on her hands, I always used to think they would look weird that way but after seeing it this way I hope that this is how she turns out or at least close to this design with the wings on her arms.
DoodleKnots Featured By Owner Oct 4, 2014
She looks way too fat...
And sometimes exercise dont cause huge muscles for everybody...
I know she is suppose to be a kick boxer but even those legs wont be flying...
However I love the concept idea with her wings! 
It adds more mysterious appeal when she covers her whole body with them and that also gives more sex appeal.
On top of that, she looks like an ACTUAL BAT which is what she is!
Like she knows she got the body anyways and could careless how others think of her (lets not forget why we did in the first place when saw her but at the same time make us rethink the "dont judge a book by its cover")
Also she is suppose to be sneaky... so being slim/curvy or such adds to the advantage (especially being fast).

omg what the...  

 instead of collecting jewels she collects pastries.
