Sonic Universe #41 Cover sketch by Yardley Sonic Universe #41 Cover sketch by Yardley
Cover based on the artwork for the PSP game "Sonic Rivals." In the end we had Silver in the foreground, because he's more recognizable a character than Elilas.

I think it was better that Elilas and Silver were switched ^^ Great work! :dummy:

Really awesome sketch! I totally get why Silver & Elias were switched, but this version looks nice too.

If not for the character hierarchy, this would have been more than impressive! It's very interesting how you were able to switch around Silver and Elias, almost as if they traded heads!

Heh! I was wondering why it was him and not King Elilas, since Silver wasn't the leader, but it makes since from that note. Either way, awesome covers!

Ha ha! I remember this from the comic too! When you guys said it was somewhat based on the Sonic Rivals cover. Awesome sketches! I'm one of those fans too! XD

I actually like Shard's pose in this sketch better than on the final cover. I don't know, it just looks like he's about to attack someone head on, which is quite awesome.
All the same, fantastic work, Tracy! Thanks for showing this to the fans :)

I think this is a way better cover, mostly cause I really prefer Elias over Silver

Now that you mention it Yardley, it really does look like the cover of the Sonic Rivals game! Man, you guys at Archie Comics are just full of surprises!

Nice!! It's good to know that Silver is getting more recognition in the comics since his video game appearances don't really provide that too frequently.

It's a very dynamic sketch. I kind of wish they kept Elias at the front because he is the leader of the Secret Freedom Fighters, but I understand the desicion to put Silver up from. Most people only want to see the main characters, so putting him up front would make it more likely to be picked up by new comers to the series. I just noticed what looks like a green hill zone wall behind Silver.
