Masterfully and beautifully colored by the greatest gal pal, Aleah Baker:
Go to her deviantart site and tell her how awesome she is. GO ON. DO IT! HURRY UP!!!

The fourth batch of Off Panels I drew for Archie Comic's Sonic Universe. This time for the "Chaotix Quest: All for One" storyarc! This was the first real Chaotix adventure (just them with no hangers-on or lookee-loos) the book has ever had which made this a fun excursion! I didn't really play with the layouts on this batch as much as I had for its accompanying Sonic the Hedgehog OP's. These I kept simpler out of necessity.
The first strip is actually a replacement. You can view what would have been the original OP here.
For those wondering about the "After Young" reference, I'm referring to Chic Young
, the original artist on the newspaper strip Blondie. If you didn't catch it, Vector's pose is a straight-up unapologetic riff on Dagwood Bumstead.
Strip #2, I did not have time to make proper edits to. So that seamless fixer-upper is all Aleah and IMHO she did great.
Strip #3 is simple enough until you look at that last panel...and then go STRAIGHT DOWN into Strip #4. Best thing is, I don't think anyone who saw it in print ever made the connection. Which is hilarious. Hehehehe. My only regret is that I drew Beauregard wrong and never even realized it. Oh well.
