SatBK: Espio as Sir Gareth by Zephyros-Phoenix SatBK: Espio as Sir Gareth by Zephyros-Phoenix
:iconcommentplz::icondonotplz::iconusemyartplz:
Espio the Chameleon as Sir Gareth, Knight of the Round Table.

In my fanfiction rewrite of Sonic and the Black Knight, I thought to myself, why limit it to just the 5 (3 for the story) knights they used when there are more characters that would make great knights?

So here's Espio as Sir Gareth. I chose for him to represent Sir Gareth because Gareth is one of the brothers of Gawain (Knuckles). Since together Knuckles, Espio, Mighty and Vector are members of the Chaotix, I felt it was more fitting than any other name, with Mighty being Gaheris and Vector being Agravain, Gawain's other brothers.

For Gareth's design, I pretty much armor-fied Espio's normal look, like they did with the other characters. The design of his helm is based on a ninja shuriken and the armor over his horn lifts up with his visor. The symbol on the helm is the symbol of the Shinobi Clan, the ninja clan of chameleons that Espio serves in the mainstream comic books. He does not have a main weapon, but instead uses multiple small daggers and throwing knives like kunai and shuriken.

Sir Gareth of the Knights of the Round Table is quiet, serious, calm and very disciplined. But he is not without flaws: he can be rather opinionated, arrogant and sometimes a showoff. As a chameleon, he is able to render his skin to match his environment, making him nearly invisible, though he can still be seen as a blur or shimmer and something as simple as a sneeze can give him away. His armor is coated in a special material that allows it to change along with his skin. He is swift and agile, capable of running at high speeds and easily scaling and climbing up high buildings and is an expert marksmen. He is rather claustrophobic. He enjoys apples, quiet and peaceful places and can play the lute.

Reference: Espio the Chameleon (Sonic Generations)

Espio the Chameleon and Sonic and the Black Knight belong to SEGA.
Sir Gareth belongs to *Zephyros-Phoenix

Okay.Seriously,I love the design you gave to Espio as Sir Gareth.Yeah......But my main problem is that he doesn't have any main weapons of some sort...I'd like to make a suggestion to that.He can have a Katana 1/4 long as Sephiroth's (from Final Fantasy VII) sword,"Masamune".I'd like to name Espio's sword "Muramasa"...It fits his stealth style of fighting. XD Hmmm..Can't really think of anything else to say.....Meh..Maybe some questions of the game itself.Was the Final Boss of SatBK too easy? What else...Errrrr....Is the game generally that awesome? Hmmm.....How did you come up with the armor design? ....Oh yeah! I was all "Holy Shit! That's awesome!" when I first saw it, I couldn't STOP looking at them. XD I mean...That was so good! Oh yeah,I'm sorry if the idea of me not very fond of the idea of Espio having no weapons kinda insulted you.I was just stating my opinion.But overall...Awesome Drawing! (If you're asking why I gave Originality a 4, I mean...you just used a character from an official series...and gave him some metallic duds. I guess that's fair enough XD)
What do you think?

somehow i think it would have been more fitting to have him as a samurai or some thing like that, since he's a ninja. but i supose this suits him just fine, but if you were to ever give him a sword give him a japanese sword, y'know, ninjas and stuff...

Espio, my favorite member of the Chaotix, still a ninja & a knight! If they ever make an comic book adaptation of "Sonic & The Black Knight" video game & include Epio,  he should look like this & have that story/description! Nice job on the helmet design like a shuriken/ninja throwing star, how he still has his ninja wrist & ankle bands/cuffs & with the Shinobi Clan symbol on his helmet! Merry X-MAS & Happy New Year!!!

Wait.Are you gonna make an Arthurian version of Charmy,since you gave the other Chaotix members Arthurian versions of themselves.Just asking.

Probably not for Charmy because I have no need of an Arthurian version of him... that and I can't stand Charmy.

I think it's partially because a lot of the old school Sonic fans criticize the inclusion of Sonic's friends into the games, stating that these characters are stupid and play no significant role in the story of the game itself.

I disagree with that because I happen to like a lot of the other characters in the series, more than Sonic himself even.

All the big time reviewers like IGN keep saying the game is crap, but I think it's really good. The swordplay is a bit choppy but all in all, I loved playing the game and I do replay it quite a bit. I think because it's Arthurian myth and swords, it really appeals to me. ^^

Reviewers aren't always right... especially IGN. They should make more sonic games with themes like that.

Zephyros-Phoenix Featured By Owner Dec 19, 2011  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, I stopped listening to IGN a loooong time ago. I actually hope there's more of the storybook series. I never played the first one, Secret Rings, but I heard it was bad, plus the controls were way worse (no thumb stick usage). Plus, I wasn't too attracted to the storybook they used. I guess since I'm a die hard and long time fan of Sonic, I like a lot more of the games that get bad reviews.
