This is a quick little digital sketch I did of my interpretation of a Defender Pendant
, an important symbol in the world of Zyearth, a universe created by
Way back in the day (like, 2005-7) we did a lot of written roleplaying over AOL Instant Messenger using our Sonic fancharacters. The stories we co-wrote documented various adventures in the worlds of Mobius (Sonic's World), Zyearth, and Immoria (my own world, and the birthplace of Omni the Hedgehog, that old Sonic recolor).
Over the years, I essentially abandoned my characters, while she expanded hers. Over time, the stories shed their Sonic-esque exterior to become something much more original. Today, she's taking her own stories and some of what we wrote together and massively reworking it into a series of novels.
She's given me the privilege of creating the cover for the first book, as well as perhaps other books in the series. So I'm currently working on re-familiarizing myself with the lore (which is for the most part entirely new to me). As for the pendant's design, I made a few adjustments to her original design for structural and compositional considerations.
