Winter here from the new Featured Management team. This month we have Nitrogen218, a user who's been here for quite awhile as well as a three-time Featured User winner. Let's see what he has to say.
Q1: How does it feel to win Featured User for the third time?
A: To be honest, I hadn't even expected to have for a third time. Yet, it is definitely an honor being a rather late winner. I'm very happy.
Q2: What and/ or who inspires you the most?
A: It has been a while since I heard that. I'd say fellow Sonic fans on the wiki, especially artists like Nikki Kaji, Darkest Shadow, and many others. In fact some more recent inspirations such as Xoph or Winter, with the constructive feedback and all.
Q3: What are your thoughts on Sonic Forces?
A: That remains to be seen. I think it's shaping up to be an excellent sonic game in a long time. Especially following the release of mania, and the fact the custom hero is in the new game. The custom bit alone gives me hype because I'm that big of a fan of creativity, especially with ocs. I haven't seen any videos as I don't want to be spoiled and I always favored the darker stories
Q4: What do you think of the wiki?
A: Honestly, I do believe that it is a great place for those with a creative side. Primarily a safe haven for fair critical feedback, a place to make friends, and simply a much more saintly place in comparison to the rest of the Sonic fanbase.
Q5: What are you going to do for Halloween?
A: Well, I hadn't really thought about it, but I figured I'd just give my fursona a cosplay and that's that. Don't really have any other plans. I may make one more picture that brings fear into others, but the design will end up being late. No hints as to what'll it be.
Q6: How long have you been drawing?
A: It's goes about as far back as I middle school, around age 12. I use to draw when I was much younger around the early 2000's, but that's normal for kid of that age. Age 12 was when my interest in science fiction was my obsession, it was also when started drawing fictional robots in the style of G1 Transformers and canonical Sonic characters.
Q7: Are you a self taught artist?
A: Well, yes and no. Yes, as in, I would practice drawing characters everyday without instructions from a teacher or professor, and no as in I've still been getting lessons from an instructor as I'm currently in college to get a major.
Q8: Who's your favorite Sonic character?
A: There's a broad list, but my number one is essentially Miles Tails Prower for several reasons, such as being inspired from Sonic the Hedgehog and being a mechanical genius. Kinda like me who aspired to be a mechanical wizard, when in middle school.
Q9: Who's your favorite fan character that you've seen within the wiki?
A: Oooh, nobody's asked me this before. If I had to choose, It would most certainly be.....Nikki "Nikkell" the Hedgehog. This was actually one of the few fancharacters I've seen before I joined the wiki. Back then, I saw as pretty adorable and beautiful, and I still think the character is. But it also lead to the creation of Nicole the CyberFox, as I really liked the name "Nikki".
Q10: On a scale of 1 to H, how good are Sonic memes?
A: Oh, uh...on a scale I'd say 5 because there are some that are really, really good, but there are also some that are really repetitive. Some things like "Sonic Forces, you to forget about Sonic Adventure 3", or "Gotteh go fest," are pretty damn hilarious. Some however like Sanic are good, but they have kinda lost there luster due to their over saturation on the internet.
Congratulations to our new Featured User! Who will our next Featured User be? Let us see!
