Mephiles the Dark (Crystalline Form) by Cylent-Nite Mephiles the Dark (Crystalline Form) by Cylent-Nite
A couple of days ago I uploaded my Iblis design that I did several months ago. So today I decided to finally go about designing a new Mephiles design that I had in mind for a story I want to work on. It was fun doing this piece, as I had to replicate the same style I did with the previous picture. While I was drawing reference from the original Mephiles design to come up with the design for Iblis, I reversed that method with my new Mephiles design by drawing reference from my Iblis design, so it was certainly a lot of fun to do!

The story I had in mind involves an alternate telling of events of Sonic 06 during the accident 10 years ago. Instead of Shadow and Silver arriving from the future in order to seal away Mephiles and Iblis, they don't come back to stop them and the two deities are left free and help young Elise after the loss of her father. Throughout the story I plan to have alternate tellings of events from Classic and Modern storylines accordingly, with Elise and the Solaris duo as the main protagonists. The two eventually develop these forms that I have designed.

Woah! This art looks really cool! I love the design! I thought I'd ask, but do you mind if I use the design in a fanfic I'm writing? It's along the lines of Nazo Unleashed if you've ever seen it, and revolves around Mephiles!

I don't know why, but the idea of a good Mephiles, especially considering Mephiles's name is a play on Mephistopholes, doesn't sit right with me

It's better to not take that seriously, because for me, i rather have a more-to-it than what it's based on.

Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of Mephiles and Iblis being Elise's protectors. After all, they didn't actually act malevolent when they were first released. It's entirely possible that the creatures were a side effect of their presence, and that their (possibly) wrongful imprisonment made them bitter. Perhaps not being imprisoned stopped them from becoming that way.

That wasn't a joke, THAT WAS SHOCK, but did you notice that Amy Rose did not yell when Elise kissed Sonic?

At this point, because they didn't go rather overboard with her "fangirl-ish" persona, because it doesn't define her character, nor it represents her that way.

Or to put it simply, they stopped bothering with so-called "fangirl-ish" persona, because it doesn't represent her that way.

So yeah, they continued with non-loving personality in later sonic games (Well a little in Generations, but whatever).

Or Elise'll do forehead kiss, because let's be honest they just met.

Rosy, i feel like it's not gonna be that much different.

He looks a lot better this way than that original form he took after Shadow, it came off boring to me but this one really stands out because he has his own look here. The colors are better too, they coordinate well together! Would have been a more interesting idea if he took after different forms

I'll try lol

Okay My Fc Zaran Darkeyes has a Dark mode

said mode is caused because he was born with a small bit of Mephiles inside him

so whenever he get's incredibly angry he turns into this form

here's my question, can I get some advice to make him look like Mephiles but still looking like a fox

here's a pic of his dark mode

zeusthefox.deviantart.com/art/…

and what I want to do is make him look more like Mephiles but at the same time he doesn't look drastically different from his normal form

here's a pic of him normally

zeusthefox.deviantart.com/art/…

what do you think? any suggestions?
